Kyoto has a lot of very interesting and beautiful places to see. This full day tour may not cover all of them but it includes most of the must-see places. Lunch is included which is just ok. Our tour guide for the afternoon tour, Yuki, was very knowledgeable and fluent in English. My only complaint is that we were all in a rush especially the morning tour, and it seemed that we didn't have enough time to take in the beauty of the places we've been to. One family who was part of our tour group was left behind in the Golden Pavilion and had to take the taxi to rejoin the group in the Imperial Palace. The pacing of the afternoon tour was better, we even had time to buy some souvenirs in the shops near the Kyomizu Temple.
Absolutely perfect if you only have a short time in Kyoto; I just had one full day and this tour took me to six places, all of them fantastic and worth seeing. It felt like I'd managed to see a decent amount of Kyoto even though I just stopped over there. The lunch was fantastic too!
The tour was well organized and the tour guide shared with us her knowledge of the places we were visiting. If there was anything to complain about, it's the lack of time but that was provided and simply mulling about is not a good idea as we'll miss the bus. Was it worth it? Yes, the value was worth it and I would recommend the full day understanding Kyoto's culture.
Great tour was able to see all the sites with time in the evening to go to Gion corner. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. I recommend this tour to anyone wishing to get away for the just a weekend and see Kyoto. Had a wonderful time!!!
This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Well organised, guide spoke clear fluent english and provided a great range of information about each place and we spent enough time at each location. Fantastic value for money!

An excellent way to get an overview of Kyoto. Visited several of the major sites with well informed guides.

Very well organized tour. I was taken care of from pick up to drop off. The time spent in each of the 6 locations was long enough to enjoy them. Both of the tour guides were enthusiastic, and very entertaining to listen. Would do it again anytime...
Great tour especially especially if you are only visiting Kyoto for a short while. This covers all the major attraction place and saves you time getting to one place and another. The only downside is the lunch time block is too long (almost 2 hours).
Great pace, explored pretty much all we wanted to see in Kyoto all in a day/
This was a great tour with a nice size of group not too large or small. The tour lady speaks fluently english and has a great knowledge of Japan history. She does not miss a thing and kept us moving efficiently the schedules. Lunch was good and well organized with plenty of time enjoy and relax. We enjoyed the full day as expected., Excellent.
The tour is actually split in two. All sites were just woinderful. The afternoon guide, Mitch, one of the best guides ever. Nice, corteous, very knowledgeable, with one of best English spoken in all Japan. A must do!
Excellent tour. Great value and plenty to see. Lunch was also very good. Full day recommended!
Our guide made the day super enjoyable.
It was well planned, and everything we saw was just beautiful. Effortless and easy way to see lots of Kyoto in one day.
I was in Kyoto for a business trip so only had very limited time for sightseeing. This tour was absolutely perfect for me and the whole day was extremely well organised from start to finish.
We had different tour guides in the morning and afternoon and both were very informative and entertaining.
The pace was just right for me, giving me the opportunity to pack a lot into the day but without feeling too rushed.
Excellent. Interesting and well-organised. Our guide was top-notch and answered questions easily. Travellers should be aware of the variations due to certain locations closing on certain days and seasons though.
Love this day tour! This is a must for a ay tour in Tokyo - Diego @ Australia
