Well organised trip for very nice sightseeing places.
Great tour and we wouldn't have been able to see half of the sites without it. Also, guides were really informative and helpful.
Absolutely great guides with friendly personalities. The site choices were perfect. We had a wonderful day.
Really nice day, great introduction to the sights of Kyoto, and the guides were informative and friendly. The lunch at the handicraft centre was also prettyy good, but there was way too much time allocated to shopping in there. I would highly recommend if you have limited time in Kyoto or Japan and really want to get a good taste for some of old Japan.
This tour delivered everything promised. I was picked up on time by a very friendly and informative guide who worked hard to insure that we visited key attractions of Kyoto with efficient use of time, while still providing enough time at each site for meaningful experiences. She was very knowledgeable about both the sites visited and other information about Kyoto. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who has limited time and would like to get the most from that limited time. In my case, the tour also served as an excellent first-day introduction to Kyoto that allowed me to make good use of the next day on my own in the city.
Very interesting trip. I saw a lot in a short amount of time, much more than I would have been able to see on my own. Kyoto has some of the most beautiful scenery. The break for lunch was too long though.
Everything was great.
Tour is a bit pricey. However, if you are in Kansai for a short trip, would recommend this, as its impossible to travel so many places on your own. We did not follow the grp back to hotel as we decided to walk from Kiyomizu temple to Gion area. Very walkable. In addition, if you need to catch the bus back to the hotel, you will find that you do not have enough time at Kiyomuzu temple. There is a street of snacks and gift s you can buy. Stopped over for a bowl of kyoto udon as well!.. nice

An ideal tour for those on tight time frames. A lot is seen here. However remember that at times you are rushed, so its a good overall visit to the sites. For in depth visits you need to revisit. All tours have a restricted time frame. I think that our guide was just a little too quick at times and his identifying thingy could be brighter or more visible. Also I recommend guides to wear a wireless microphone so it is easier to hear what is being said.
Tour was very well conducted. Ran on time. Only missing information was that our full day tour was actually conducted as two half-day tours by the local company. This information was not given before hand, or maybe I missed it on the web. In any case, it was an excellent experience, nice buses and good conductors. Food was provided.
The best sites in one day, great if you are short on time!
Very good tour. We hit all the highlights of Kyoto without having to wait in line or navigate public transportation. Tour was on time and the guides were knowledgeable.
This was a wonderful trip. I only had 2 days in Kyoto and this allowed me to see a fair bit. Although there was no enough time to truly see and appreciate every aspect, it was well worth it. The guide was knowledgeable and funny and spoke English well. All in all I would highly recommend this tour.
Es war ein genialer Tag, so viel wie wir gesehen haben, kann man sonst nicht sehen wenn man alleine unterwegs ist. Unser Guide war auch super, er hat uns sogar ein Geisha-Lied im Bus vorgesungen. Super, macht weiter so. Gruss
