Our tour guide was so sweet and patient. Glad we did this tour.
This tour was fabulous from start to finish. We even saw three geisha girls in the Gion district. The Gion district was amazing and we were walking down the cobbled alleyways in the moonlight. Fabulous experience!
This tour was fantastic and definitely a highlight of our time in Kyoto. Our guide Kumiko was very knowledgeable and informative, easy to understand and funny. We learnt a lot about the New Year traditions, the Kyoto way of life, the geisha traditions, Japanese food (we really enjoyed the Japanese sweet shop in Gion!). The small group made it easy to ask lots of questions. All of the tour sightseeing was amazing and my favourite was the Fushimi Inari shrine which every visitor to Kyoto must visit! Thank you Viator.
Intimate tour of Kyoto - like walking around with a friend. Answered a lot of questions about New Year traditions, difference between maiko and geisha. Made allowances for my bum knee. Tour was comfortable pace with stops for snacks. Excellent guide.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and it was more than we expected. Our tour guide was wonderful and she went to great lengths to make sure we spotted a geisha in Gion. Our walking tour with her was also fantastic and we really enjoyed the local feel of the walk. The sweets we're were given were also enjoyable.
Loved this tour and would highly recommend it.
Jaz was a great tour guide. Very helpful and patient.
We loved it and learned so much.We would recommend it to everyone.
That tour was very good.The young tourgaide was very informative and knoligable.
If you have a chance don't miss it.
Lovely way to see Kyoto. Our guide, Kaz, was fun and informative. Because the group is small (there were 6 of us), it was much more enjoyable then parading along with a larger bus tour. We enjoyed chit chatting with one another as we strolled along. I was staying in Gion and that is also the last stop of the tour so it worked out well for me. I just walked a couple of blocks to my hotel. We did spot Maiko too!
Just four of us in the group. Kaz was an excellent tour guide - very informative and intresting, a really nice young man. Willing to linger where we wanted to linger and move on when we wanted to. Lots of information that you wouldn't find in a guide book.
Enjoyed the tour very much, tour guide ("Kaz") was very informative, had lots of historical and cultural knowledge, was friendly, courteous, and professional which added to the enjoyment and fun of the tour.
This tour is perfect tour for first time visitor to Kyoto since it shows you the best places to see in this old city. We went to the most popular area Gion and met Geisha on the main street in Gion and then we went to try the traditional Japanese dishes in one of the restaurants in Gion by ourselves. Our tour guide also took us to the theater which has daily shows for tea ceremony, Geisha show and other traditional show. If you do not want to pay expensive meal to see Geisha show, this theater is the most economic way to see Geisha show.
