Our tour guides are very funny and knowledgable. We had a great time!
Really enjoyed the tour guide, and my favorite was being up close with deers. Highly recommend this tour!
This was a great day! All the arrangements were handled very efficiently. The tour guides spoke good English and were very knowledgable. We fit in a lot more than we could have on our own. At the end of the day as we were returning to Kyoto, the guide took the trouble to speak to each of us and find out if there was anything else we'd like him to talk about. I was interested in learning more about life generally in Japan and the impact of the current economic climate. He provided excellent insights. Thank you!
Highly recommend! We saw so much in one day and such great sights. This tour is actually two tours combined with lunch in the middle (Kyoto morning tour and Nara afternoon tour). Our morning tour guide was amazing. So much fun and knowledgeable. The Deers are the highlight - amazing - they bow to you and you can feed them biscuits that you purchase for approx $1.50. Great day!
Another great tour out of Kyoto. The temples are amazing. Tour was great. You are able to see a lot in a limited amount of time.
A really full day so have a good breakfast! So many highlights from start to end. Fish was a top guide giving us many interesting insights into life in Japan. Have your camera ready for this one! ( lunch was really good too)
Very fast and intensive but a great overview of those cities. Excellent tour guides, great knowledge and very kind. The most stunning places of Japan. Highly recommended.
We only had 1 full day in Kyoto. There was no other way to see so many sites in one day so it was well worth the trip. The tour is rushed but its the only way to see everything. The guides were very pleasant and they really made an extra effort to make sure everyone was happy. 5 Stars
It was a great experience touring Kyoto and Nara in one day. The value of having a tour guide is realized when you compare yourself with other guests without tour guide - they don't get to understand what the signs and symbols are of each tourist spot.
It will be cheaper if you take the train from Osaka to Kyoto by yourself and just meet up with the rest of the tourists in the hotel. Lunch was OK, just enough to re-energize you from the morning's tour. It takes about 1.5 hours to travel from Kyoto to Nara, but the experience of seeing deer in the streets was worthwhile.
This was an interesting trip to may ancient sites. The guides were superb and did not try to hard sell anything to the crowd. I would surely recommend this trip to others.
Stunning temples, shrines and castles. A great way to see the highlights of Kyoto and Nara in one day. Our guide knew her stuff and was very entertaining. A fantastic trip that I would recommend to anyone.
I had a blast! There would have been no other way on my short time in Kyoto to see so many of the best sights. The guide was informative, the sights were amazing.
If you want to see as much Kyoto as you can in a day I would definetly recommend this tour.
Good for briefly trip for Kyoto and Nara in 1 day. Guides were terrific.
Excellent tour guide in each event. Lunch was outstanding too. Best tour in Japan.
Excellent itinerary, fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide. Highly recommended
It was an awesome experience!! The guides were all knowledgable and entertaining!! I would definitely recommend!!!
The trip itself was great, you won't be able to see so much in such a short time if you go in your own
but you need to do your homework before this trip-read about where are you going, because it isn't always possible to hear the guide,and not everybody from our group understood her accent,unfortunately
But despite everything it was a great trip, we were so glad we went on it!
Can highly recommend this tour. Only way to quickly see so many sights and the guides were great.
Morning trip to Kyoto was great....afternoon trip to Nara...the lady guide spoke too much...the trip did not give us time to dhop
