The tour was very well organized, meeting us at the hotel and taking care of everything. Time at venues was right except the last, which could have allowed more time for shopping. The sites are spectacular and the guide had an excellent grasp of the history and presented it in a most enjoyable and understandable way. I do recommend this tour as an introduction to Kyoto, but if you have the time, also go out and explore on your own, which our guide encouraged with helpful ideas.
great tour worth going

Wonderful tour. Suzuki is a knowledgable and good tour leader. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Kyoto.
Excellent itinerary, fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide. Highly recommended
a very good, compact daily tour
Great tour guide, easy to find location for the bus. Good information explained at each of the four sites we visited as well as a good lunch served. Not enough time allowed at the last stop (shopping district) because the tour had one family that needed to get back to the train depot earlier than the tour was scheduled. This small group had traveled from another city for this tour...through a travel company arrangement. Made our last stop more than an hour shorter than we had been told at the out-set. Then no time for the rest of the 35-40 folks on the tour to visit the small shops as had been "promised" near the last site. We never did find a way to get back to that area, but did "manage" to buy plenty of Japanese gifts.
Guide was excellent. The size of this walking tour was small (3). The pace was good. See saw a lot in a beautiful setting.
Doing what: Arashiyama and Sagano Morning Walking Tour
Excellent tour guide in each event. Lunch was outstanding too. Best tour in Japan.
Kyoto brobably the most interesting Japanise city.Full of history.The city is a must to see.
If you lucky you can see geishas too.
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!
Doing what: Fushimi Inari and Sake Brewery Tour
Our tour guide was kind, funny and knowledgeable. We always book through Viator when we travel if they are an option. We always find the guides to be excellent and the overall tours to be really thorough and safe.
