Kyoto Afternoon Tour - Heian Shrine, Sanjusangendo, Kiyomizu Temple

Kyoto, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This is a tour to three of the most wellknown shrines and temples in Kyoto. The way of this tour I would consider to be very ‘japanese’: travelling around in a bus, short stops and sightseeing, then the next bus trip. Explanations to every sight a given in the bus. If you want to enjoy this you will have to like this kind of express tourism. Besides that there were no problems. The organization was very good, one should only take care about the pick-up since if you do not care your pick-up point may be set to Kyoto main. With an (english) phone call that was easily solved. For a trip of four hours the price was ok, but as said: you have to like this.

Arashiyama and Sagano Morning Walking Tour

Kyoto, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This tour leads off the Kyoto city limits, the train needed about 30 minutes, a shuttle to Kyoto main is included. Sights are the Sagano bamboo grove, two temples and the Toketsukyo bridge. Explanations are given while walking, since that’s what you do all the time. At the end you will have an opportunity to do a little shopping. The tour guide was friendly and competent, the price seems a little high although all transportation was included. Anyway it was an interesting morning, but you should know how to use your feet (especially in summer).

My Review

(English translation below)
Wir haben diese Tour gebucht, weil sich Kyoto von der Grösse her sehr gut für eine Erkundung mit dem Fahrrad eignet und ein japanischer Freund uns geraten hatte, sich zur Eingewöhnung einen Führer zu buchen. Die hiess Ayumi, sprach sehr gut Englisch und kannte sich auch sonst ganz gut aus. Es gab eine vorgegebene Rundtour, von der wir aber nach Belieben abweichen durften, zumal wir die einzigen Teilnehmer waren.
Auf diese Weise bekamen wir in über drei Stunden eine Menge zu sehen und hatten Hilfe bei der Selbstverteidigung - Fahrradfahren ist scheinbar in Wirklichkeit ein Kampfsport ;-) Auf jeden Fall eine sehr empfehlenswerte Art der Stadterkundung und seinen Preis wert, besonders bei einer so netten Führung.
We booked this tour because the size of Kyoto is bicyle-friendly. A japanese friend advised us to book a guide however to get used to biking in Japan. Our guide Ayumi had great knowledge about English as well as of the city. She had a proposal for a tour, but as we were the only participants we were able to do changes at will. This way we saw in more than three hours a lot of interesting points and got help in self-defense – bicycle-riding seems to be a kind of martial art in Japan ;-) Anyway it was a very good experience of exploring the city, especially with such a friendly and nice support. Highly recommended.
