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.

Our guide was interesting on the tour and also Japanese life. On the road up to the temple there were many young women dressed in kimonos in such beautiful colours.

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.
