Mickey, our guide, was very knowledgeable. He was equipped with a microphone, thus enabling everyone taking the tour to hear the info on each site we visited. He had a terrific sense of humour as well. The tour featured a shrine and two temples, each very different from one another. Though it was a cold and (almost) rainy day, the experience of visiting the sites was unique and most interesting.
Great tour guide. He helped us find things to do for the next day and was extremely knowledgable about his subjects.
Wonderful tour. Takes you in just an afternoon to some of the more pleasant sights in Kyoto. Besides visiting several important temples, it takes you to a top of a hill from where you get a great view of the surroundings and also through an interesting market that has all kinds of gifts and curios. Certainly worth going on this tour.
The shrines and temples were interesting and each one was different from the other. The shopping area was fantastic. The tour guide spoke excellent English.
Our guide was excellent. Sanjusendo and the Kiyomizu temple were multi-faceted and well worth the time spent visiting them. The Heian shrine was, likewise, interesting.
The tour guide was exceptional. She spoke excellent English and was very kind. Her breadth of knowledge was quite amazing. It was a great tour!
Amazing tour! There was plenty of time to see each site and free time for shopping at the temple district at Kyomizu Dera. We also walked through the adjacent Shinto shrine in our free time and still got to shop. Stress free pick up and drop off at the Shin Miyako Hotel right next to the Kyoto Eki.
The guide was fantastic in her ability to impart a lot of information in an interesting and accessible way. the tour included fabulous venues and I learned a great deal and really found a lot to be excited about. The guide had superb English and I would really recommend this tour to anyone!
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.
