Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Kyoto Morning Tour: Kyoto Imperial Palace, Golden Pavilion, Nijo Castle. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Tour was good although the golden pavilion site was mobbed with thousands of tourists. Tour guide was very good and was entertaining as well as informative.
Good tour but you may be over all the palaces, shrines and temples by the end of it.
If you looked at other temples, in other cities, you could probably miss this tour. Otherwise, it will open your eyes to the history of Kyoto.
The Kyoto tour was very good. We enjoyed the palace, pavilion and castle. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and personable. The bus ride was comfortable and clean. Worth the money.
Great overview of Kyoto. Group was little large, otherwise highly recommended. Very knowledgeable tour guide.
Saw the major sites on 1/2 a day which was great but as can be expected felt very rushed. For those who takes this tour be aware - this tour concludes at 12:00 at the lunch restaurant for the full day tour. They do shuttle the half day participants back to the Kyoto station but you only arrive back at the station after 13:00. We had another tour scheduled to depart at 14:00 so our planned relaxed lunch turned into a rushed lunch at a fast food vendor.
Fantastic short tour of Kyoto. Really enjoyed the golden pavilion and nightingale floor.
The tour covers the must see places. Convenient. Tour guide's English is not very good though. Would be more informative if she speaks better English
Excellent Tour and guide was very good! Would do again-- JB Sunrise Tours through Viator was most worthwhile. Would recommend.
Excellent, notwithstanding the pouring rain.
Only one thing, the meeting point: I was waiting outside the designated hotel, while the girl was waiting for me in the lobby... I was about to leave when she finally ran out and located me.
And one more thing: why do you promise "Imperial Palace" as this actually never happens.
A very interesting morning spent in Kyoto - we got to see lots and thankfully the weather was good. Our tour guide was friendly and spoke excellent English.
It is a great morning trip for a reasonable price if you are only in Kyoto for a day it so. It is difficult up get around without a tour bus around Kyoto
Imperial Palace was closed and was replaced by a tour to a shrine, Honganji West. English speaking tour guide was excellent.
