Enjoyed the tour! The tour guides were very informative!
This trip worth evry cent. The tour guide was well informed about myriad Japanese delicacies on display at the Nishiki market and our small group of eight people. At the sake outlet we tasted quality sakes and ended up buying a bottle for the cooking class. The cooking class gave us hands on experience at sushi-making. Our teacher was very clear in her explanations and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our experience, We will recommend anyone to take this tour.
Nice tour, I will never forget it.
Good customer service (matched lowest available price) as well as knowledgeable tour guides and good selection of sites.
Tourist friendly introduction into wearing the Kimono, Tea ceremony, and Sake. We were interviewed at the tour by Japanese TV! The house was authentic old Japanese style and the guides were knowledgeable and very friendly. Good for adults and kids alike.
Probably our favorite tour of our trip. Saw a heap of fantastic scenes from around Kyoto with a really well informed guides. The swcond half of the day we had to practically take at a run but that was only because there is so much crammed into the day. Definitely worth it if you have a spare day.
Very good. Guide excellent and very polite. A little rushed.
Overall, it was wonderful experience. Sometimes felt rushed.
Overall, good experience.
Morning Kyoto tour was average, a bit rushed. But the afternoon Nara trip was great.
Japanese castles are always worth a visit and this was no exception.
Its a good trip, didnt like the lunch place. But everything else was good
The itinerary of the tour is very good, visiting the principal touristic places of Kyoto, our guide Mr. Yoshitaka was nice and amusing, besides of knowledge of details of the visited points.
This was a 50/50 experience but overall pretty good Really more of a 3+ star experience. It consisted of a tour of the markets, sake tasting and a class where you learned to make a sushi roll. The guide and cooking teacher were very pleasant and they made the experience worthwhile. English skills were good but not fluent.
Pros: Very pleasant and outgoing guide.
Cons: Not what I really expected. The description led me to believe that we would select ingredients for the cooking class. Not really. So the experience was a lot more watching than shopping someone else buy items that -- in the end -- where not really what was used anyway in the class.
Kind of fun. Not too educational, but a historic building. Not an operational brewery.
This was fun, but again, a lot of watching with a few moment of participation. The teacher was extremely nice and this was the highlight of the tour. Watched her demonstrate how to make dashi and rice. Helped cut ingredients for Miso and sushi. Rolled and cut sushi (egg and veg).
Again, a good way to spend a rainy afternoon, but not a must do.
Beautful area near Kyoto. Tour was great and guide was informative. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes.
Doing what: Arashiyama and Sagano Morning Walking Tour
