Guide was fantastic. Interesting and informative. Speaks clearly for all to hear. Covers a lot of ground in a short time. A+ compared to other international guides. Coordinator arranged 2 free taxis to meeting point. Dropped us off in city center!
Again, a wonderful guide in Izumi. Very informative about the city of Kyoto and Japanese culture. Excellent sites to visit. Was particularly in awe of the one which no photographs were allowed at, ironically, Sanjusangendo. Definately a must see.
]Love the history, great guide, awesome temples. Highly recommend :)]
The tour was very informative and well planned out. My only concern was the rather large group that was on the tour. Beyond that it was top Notch.
Extremely informative and historical. The amount of detail that the guide gave in each of the venues was amazing. We all loved the tour and took another Viator tour the very next day. Great tour, guide and venues.
This is a must see tour for Kyoto. The Temples were incredible. Well organized. Tour guide spoke English very well. Hotel pick up and drop off were well organized. People were very helpful.
This twelve day tour was well worth the price. The shrines and temples we visited were absolutely beautiful! The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

It's fantastic, you can take this tour if you have sometime off in Kyoto and want to discover some of their beauties. I highly recommended.
Afternoon tour was a pleasant experience except it rained. I recommend umbrellas are provided by tour operators.
Since we came from Osaka in the morning, the pacing, timing and length of the afternoon tour was just right. The best place for me was Sanjusangendo, which unfortunately did not allow photos. I only wished that our tour guide that afternoon spoke clearer English or had a tone of voice that was not too high pitched.
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.
