This tour was fantastic and definitely a highlight of our time in Kyoto. Our guide Kumiko was very knowledgeable and informative, easy to understand and funny. We learnt a lot about the New Year traditions, the Kyoto way of life, the geisha traditions, Japanese food (we really enjoyed the Japanese sweet shop in Gion!). The small group made it easy to ask lots of questions. All of the tour sightseeing was amazing and my favourite was the Fushimi Inari shrine which every visitor to Kyoto must visit! Thank you Viator.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. It was personalised - just my husband and me - and our guide Yoko was wonderful. Yoko speaks impecable English and she really knew her subject matter. Fushimi Inari Shrine is very different to other Shrines we have seen and is worth seeing, and the brewery museum was really interesting. We sampled and old and new style sake at the museum (my vote is for the old style), and tried 6 different sakes at specialst sake shop. A really great way to spend half a day!

Fei was a great guide, she explained us the story of each place we visited. She speaks good English and she is very friendly. The tour highlighted the area that you have to visit, it was a great time visiting Tofukuji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Geisha District in Gion street:)

A short walk from the train station and well worth a visit. Fun to stroll through the torii gates and bamboo forest. I also picked up a very reasonable kimono from a lady selling them near the entrance to the gates.

A gorgeous and magical shrine. I loved contemplatively strolling through the miles of torii (gates) and stopping to admire small shrines and memorials. I also bought a magnetic talisman for my car to ward off accidents, its been nearly three years and so far so good! Maybe not the most famous shrine in the Kyoto area, but definitely my favorite.

There were only three of us on this tour. The guide was friendly and somewhat knowledgeable, but not as informative as other tour guides on other Viator recommended tours we,ve taken. The walk from the train station to Tofuku-Ji Shrine was 25 minutes and the walk from there to Fushimi Inari was another 20-25 minutes. The best part of the tour was the walk around the Gion district, which was more leisurely. Potential participants should be honestly told about the amount of walking involved, especially if the weather is warmer,as it was during our tour.
