The places we visited were great and the lunch was a nice representation of a traditional Japanese meal.. The only problem we experienced was that you could not hear the tour guide both on the bus and outside. They need to be louder and wait till most gather together before they start talking.
My sister and I took the full day Kyoto and Nara trip, and it fulfilled all our expectations. The guide was knowledgeable and very helpful, the sights included were beautiful, and as a bonus, lunch was absolutely delicious. Nara was the highlight - what a gem! Our only criticism was that some of the seat belts on the bus weren't working - ours included - and no real effort was made to rectify this. Otherwise, it was a brilliant day.
It was a wet day on the day of my tour, so all the outdoor portion of it was not that enjoyable. Overall still a very knowledgeable one for the family.
First Class experience. Faultless.
The guide made the tour amazing.
Excellent guide named Casey. The Zen Garden and Deer Park were really cool!
I really enjoyed this tour. It was a great way to see the major sites with my limited time frame. Both the Kyoto and Nara tour guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. The only drawback was the deer park in Nara, where I was nipped by the deer. A warning would have been appreciated!
The tour was a great way to see both Kyoto and Nara. We would definitely recommend the tour as they will take you to all the main tourist sights in a day. Be prepared to do a lot of walking :. This tour also saves you the trouble of find your own way there, so if you are pressed for time and want to experience Japan you can do it all in one day. The temples were amazing as expected and was a very memorable trip for us.
The only feedback that we have, and yes the guides were very knowledgeable in their information and their English was great is that because the groups were large we felt that we could not get the full insight of each of the temples and history because of it. It would have been more valuable if the group was smaller maybe smaller van size vs a bus full of people so we could hear the guides and the history. Nevertheless it was a great tour and we would recommend it to others.
This tour was amazing!
The tour was awesome me and my wife had a great time. Our tour guide was very nice and very informative we enjoyed every moment. Wish we could have stayed longer but will defiantly plan another trip.
Outstanding tour - fantastic way to experience Nara as an afternoon adventure
Great tour for 1st time visitors to Kyoto! Everything is all planned out for you and can just enjoy all the places they take you to! Our guide Yuki was very sweet, patient, and knowledgeable. We had a large group in the morning Kyoto trip and a smaller quaint group of 12 in the Nara afternoon group. It was difficult to hear her in the morning group unless you were standing right next to her, but the afternoon tour was nice and personable. Highly recommend this tour!
A wonderful tour that featured the two main religions in Japan - Buddhism and Shintoism. The visit to the two different temples were very insightful and awe inspiring, especially the Buddhist temple with the giant Buddha statue set in a park with free roaming deers that you can feed and take photos with!
Great tour. But be careful about the deers. They eat everything!
This tour was amazing!
