Loved this bike tour. We went with a family of 4 adults, this was the highlight of our trip! loved our tour guides that were more then happy to translate everything for us into english at the temples.

Fun tour with a really charming and informative guide. Cruising Kyoto on a bike is lovely, truly excelent route. The shrines and temples visited were amazing. My one complain is that it's all a little bit rushed, would have been nice to have more time to take it all on. Still, highly recommended, I will never forget that day.

Guide chose nice route and gave us interesting background stories. As nearly every Kyoto-citizen bikes in the city, it is really nice to become like one of them, even only for a few hours.

Excellent introduction to soem of the byways of Kyoto, good guide and abouit the cycle pace. Visited three Temples/Shrines in the half day, leaving enough time to do my own sightseeing in the afternoon before returning to Tokyo. Fortunately there were only two of us on this particular day.

We had a great time on our trip! It was the highlight of our time in Kyoto. Prior to the bike ride, we saw a few shrines and temples and we didn't have much information about the places. It was fantastic having our own personal guide of the shrines and temples in Kyoto. he was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend!

Our guide Guillerin was fantastic. Since it was only two of us on the tour he even let us deviate a bit and visit a temple I was especially interested in. Great experience, great way to see Kyoto.

My boyfriend and I were the only ones who booked this tour on the day and that gave us the chance for an intimate one-on-one tour with our tour guide. Benjamin, our tour guide, took us on a wonderful bike journey through Kyoto. He explained the differences between temples and shrines, shared some roasted chestnuts with us so delicious! and by the end of it, we were biking around like the locals. Definitely an enjoyable tour!

Great way to see sights not normally seen by a tourist. Fun way to see the city and get from one Shrine to another. Lively guide and easy route. My girlfriend and I were very happy to have taken this tour.

Our host was fantastic - so enthusiastic and excited to take us around Kyoto, even though it was raining! Our children aged 6 and 10 managed the ride easily and it was such a great way to see the sights, learn a bit about the city and its traditions and see the cherry blossom. We only wished we had done it earlier in our stay as it's a great way to orientate yourself and know where you want to go back to. Thanks to Shalome not sure how you spell it! for her guidance and excitement!

Our bike tour was so great! It was an amazing way to see Kyoto. It turned out that we were the only 2 on the trip so it was like a private tour. Salome was very knowedgeable about Kyoto and was a great tour guide. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to see Kyoto in a fun way!

It was so much fun . Best way to see a city. We had such a great time and saw some beautiful sights. Our tour guide was very good and her english was also really good. We had a 13 year old boy and he didn't struggle at all. Easily and highly recommend this for the whole family. Perfect time as well.

Jade was an absolutely delightful guide and provided us with an excellent tour through many sections of Kyoto. This is a great way to get an overview and lay of the land of any city, especially after a long flight. The fresh air and exercise was great - not too strenuous, we rode comfortable bikes on a mostly flat path along the river and then up and through the streets to see two of the most prominent sights a shrine and we were there to witness a private ceremony at the temple. She was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of history with us. Additionally, she answered all of our questions about Kyoto, including some suggestions for dinner. Highly recommended tour for all ages.

Excellent tour, even with the rain. The guide was very informative, helpful and accommodating. I booked this, along with the Half Day Small-Group Kyoto Cultural tour (walking) at the last minute after I arrived in Kyoto. I had basically a day and a half in Kyoto prior to spending the bulk of my Japan trip in Tokyo. This was a great way to see the city in a half day's time. I'm not sure I would have wanted more time in Kyoto, because once you've seen several temples and shrines, I think seeing more would just become redundant. Bring a rain poncho, just in case.
