Touring the City by bike was a great way to see it. The tour was not too long and the tour guide spoke great English. I would definitely do this again.
Surprised to be the only one on this tour! A nice treat which allowed us to go off script a bit and see a unique temple that had a free art show. The guide was great, was happy to answer all my questions.
I had a great time on this tour. My guide was very good. I enjoyed all of her insights and help with proper etiquette when entering a Shrine. Something which I would have never known! It was a great day and really enjoyed the ride!
Great fun for someone of medium fitness. This tour took me to a part of Kyoto I had not seen in the 4 days I had been staying there. I would recommend this tour to all my friends.
I really enjoyed this bike tour around Kyoto! Our Guide lulu was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable of the area's we visited!
Started off slowly due to a customer not being able to ride a bike who books a bike tour and can't even ride a bike?! but from there the morning was glorious! Definitely worth doing this during Cherry blossom season!
What a brilliant way to see Kyoto! Tatsuya met us 6 people at the train station and took us to the bike rental....although a pricey tour 96 pp, included was bike and helmet and a Japanese snack you could have the bike all day if you wished, it was well worth it. Tatsuya is a crazy cycling enthusiast who cycles the world. He was so informative, fun and interesting. Mainly did the Eastern side of Kyoto....Heian Jingu Shrine, Nanzenji Temple, Path of Philosophy , Chion-In temple in Maruyama Park, Yasaka Pagoda and all around the back streets of Gion and the Geisha area. Supposedly 3 and a half hours but was more like 4 and a half....brilliant tour and there is no way we would have found these places by ourselves. Tatsuya knew all the back streets which meant we didn't have to deal with too much traffic. Of course being the cherry blossom season it was a superb way to see them all by bike. Highly recommend this tour and was a highlight of our stay in Kyoto. Thank you Tatsuya.
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.
Fabulous guide Alex and a great ride. Fantastic temples and easy riding. Loved it
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.
Ken, our tour leader was very nice and helpful and the rental company were accomodating.
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!
Was a great way to explore the city. Our guide had lots of knowledge and spoke very good English. It was a great tour.
Highly recommend doing this cycle tour, especially at the beginning of your trip to Kyoto.
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!
Fun way to cover a lot of ground. Beautiful route and great guide!
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!
