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.
Yumi, our tour guide, was exceptional. Great itinerary. Small group so you can ask many questions regarding culture, customs, etc. Much better than other tours - very personalized tour. Strongly recommended.
Fei was a great guide, she explained us the story of each place we visited. She speaks good English and she is very friendly. The tour highlighted the area that you have to visit, it was a great time visiting Tofukuji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Geisha District in Gion street:)
like a private tour. Did one day private tour in Kyoto , but this tour was better
Our guide, Kensai, was great. He took us to a temple and a shrine that were out of the city centre so it was less likely we would have visited them on our own. In our tour of Gion, beside the sights, he showed us where we would be able to spot geishas and sure enough we did. Overall is wonderful.
Our tour lady was great and could actually speak 3 languages fluently.
This is more than what we expect. We had a wonderful time and relaxing evening from the start through the end. She has warm personality and knowledgeable in Japan history. We enjoyed every minute of it.... Excellent!
This was a fantastic way to see some of the sights in Kyoto. The tour guide Fei was was so informative and very helpful. I only had a short amount of time in Kyoto and and I would recommend this to anyone interested in the cultural aspects of Kyoto.
A bit hard to find our guide as we were not sure if we should be looking for a tour bus outside the Post Office. However the tour is all on foot and on trains around Kyoto ( a great experience in itself ) so the guide will be standing outside the PO with a distinctive cap on. Very personalised tour
