Definitely a nice way to see Kyoto and actually learn something. Our tour guide was very patient and informative.
Wonderful trip around the highlights of Kyoto. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable, and I'm so glad we got to see so much in just half a day. Highly recommended!
A great way to get a flavour of Tokyo. We were a group of 9 and Salome our guide managed to communicate and explain to all of us very well. We went to a shrine with beautiful zen gardens, a temple and then to the Giesha district. I was impressed with Salome's knowledge and enthusiasm about Japan and Japanese culture and really enjoyed the walk
Fantastic tour, packed so much into a few hours. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and her enthusiasm for Japan and Japanese culture was contagious- would recommend this tour to others.
The best small group cultural tour that I have ever been on. The guide was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour.
Excellent personal tour for a Kyoto first-timer. The enthusiasm of our English speaking guide was infectious and made the afternoon memorable. Her insights offered glimpses into Japanese life that a tourist would not be able to obtain on a big bus tour or by following a guidebook on one's own.
Very informative and professionally run. Really enjoyed our afternoon.
Loved Kyoto thanks to my fantastic tour guide! Went to three sights in half a day and enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you for an unforgettable tour!
We had a wonderful trip to see some of the most beautiful temples and
the Geisha area. Our tour guide Elsa was very knowledgeable very kind: my camera broke the same day and I was very upset, but Elsa let me use her Iphone and sent me the taken photos via email. Thank you for that, Else! You made my day in every way! :-)
I loved this trip much and people I met were so nice.
Our tour guide Keimi was nice and she explained well. But she walks really fast~ :)
I recomme this tour to whom are considering about it!
Was lucky enough to be only the 2 of us on this tour. Jade (Australian) our guide had excellent knowledge for the area and it was helpfully that we could understand her so well and were able to ask so may questions about Japanense culture. Would definitely recommend the tour company.
We had a fantastic time. Our guide was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Not only did this save us the headache of looking for locations, without the guide's detailed explanations we would not have known what we were looking at and therefore had less fun. Everyone else on the tour was super nice too. Highly recommend this tour!
The tour was fantastic, we saw parts of Kyoto that tourists don't normally get to, also just long enough to keep the interest. Fantastic guide
Together with our tour guide, a lovely lady from Australia, we were only 3 people. Was a good and effective tour.
What an amazing tour! Jade was an incredible guide who was a fountain of information and fun tips about Kyoto. It was such a wonderful experience that i shall cherish for a lifetime! Jade is hands down the best tour guide I have ever had, truly a free spirit and kind person! Cannot recommend this tour enough!
Jade was such a lovely and helpful tour guide. She answered all our questions and made sure we got the best out of our tour. We even got to see a real geisha!
Would highly recommend this tour.
Great tour with a very knowledgable guide. Visiting fushimi inari was a dream come true. Spotted a geisha in Gion to top it off.
It was a great cultural tour. We met with Elsa who brought us around a few of the shrines and temples in the Kyoto area and she provided information in a perfectly understandable english.
There is quite a bit of walking, but she gives the group an option to walk or take a train.
The Geisha portion of the tour (towards the end) is a hit or miss. You may, or may not, be able to stumble upon a geisha during the tour. So, there is a bit of luck that goes with it. I did manage to see one from afar (legit geisha, not an ordinary woman dressed in a Kimono), but to make your tour more successful, I suggest staying away from the main road.
This tour was fantastic. The tour guide was funny, friendly, and knowledgeable. The small group size worked very well as we did a good amount of walking in busy areas. At the end of the tour the guide recommended a few areas for dinner that were english-speaking friendly but off the beaten path - really fabulous.
Our guide Elsa was wonderful and took us to some great sights. As a resident she was able to share some interesting insights to Japanese culture. It started to pour at one point but she kept going as long as the group was ok with it. group size was just right. Highly recommend
I had a wonderful experience. The tour guide is very nice and speaks very good english! They were very knowledgable, and so willing to answer questions. I got some of my best photographs on this tour over my entire two months in Japan. This is the tour to do!
