Kyoto Morning Tour - Kyoto Imperial Palace, Golden Pavilion, Nijo Castle

Kyoto, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Saw the major sites on 1/2 a day which was great but as can be expected felt very rushed. For those who takes this tour be aware - this tour concludes at 12:00 at the lunch restaurant for the full day tour. They do shuttle the half day participants back to the Kyoto station but you only arrive back at the station after 13:00. We had another tour scheduled to depart at 14:00 so our planned relaxed lunch turned into a rushed lunch at a fast food vendor.

My Review

We expected a bus tour as nowhere on the tour description does it say that it is a walking tour (with public transport). After a very busy couple of days walking loads we and other tour members were a bit taken a back when our tour guide told us it was a walking tour. The sites were good but the guide was too laid back for our taste sort of letting the shrines/temples we visited talk for themselves. We would have liked more cultural information which was lacking. Not the "Cultural Tour" we anticipated. Reading the other reviews I believe it had a lot to do with our tour guide.
