Nara Afternoon Tour of Todaiji Temple, Deer Park and Kasuga Shrine from Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We had another excellent guide. She was super sweet and throughout the ride to Nara she talked about Kyoto and all the towns we were passing by. I thought it was cool that she didn't just leave the talking for when we actually got to each sites, she was really enthusiastic and passionate about what she told us. It was extremely cold that day and it snowed a little but she made sure to get us through all the spots and everything she talked about was really fascinating. She gave us time to play with the deer and she gave some recommendations on the bus ride back of places to eat and entertainment.

My Review
We had an excellent guide! He was very knowledgeable and thorough on the history of Kyoto, the shrines and temples; and he gave some really interesting facts that I'm still bringing up to family and friends since I've been back home. The food at the handicraft center was surprisingly good and we went a few blocks down and grabbed coffee at a coffee shop. Please make sure you go to that coffee shop, I can't remember the name, it was something simple like "the coffee market". I just remember it had the word "coffee" in the title and it was English. The owner was so kind and we had the best coffee and scones there. The tour itself was excellent. We didn't have much time to spend in Kyoto and we didn't want to waste time getting lost trying to hop around from one sight to the other. I really liked that we didn't feel rushed when we went to the different sites. We were given time to take photos and you really learn a lot. On the days that we went sightseeing on our own we definitely felt like we didn't really get a chance to understand the history of it so in the end we wasted more time there walking around aimlessly. I definitely recommend doing this tour if you want to hit all the important places of Kyoto. The only thing extra we did in Kyoto was visit the Fushimi Inari shrine and the Nikishi Market, and we did both of those the next day early in the morning before our next Viator tour "Nara Afternoon Tour of Todaiji Temple, Deer Park and Kasuga Shrine. It couldn't have worked out better!
