This is a must do if you're going to Kyoto! Yes, it was exhausting seeing so much in one day, but it gave us the chance to see all the more popular sights at once and other days could be focused on the "out of the way" locations. Lunch wasn't great, but it was a planned meal that we did not have to worry about. The best part was that the final stop is a short walk to the Gion District, so we just left the tour (informing the guide of course) walked to Gion for sightseeing and dinner, and took the trains back to our hotel. All in all this is well worth the money!

Very good and informative. We enjoyed it very much. Buffet lunch was good (tasty food) but time given for lunch could be shorter so more time could be spent on touring places of interest and souvenir shopping.

Highly recommended if you have only one day in Kyoto or Osaka and haven't explore Kyoto. Great sightseeing experience especially Golden Pavillion, Sanjusangendo and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Apart of that, Nijo Castle brings interesting knowledge about the Shogun and the Imperial lifestyle during the ancient time.

Great English guided tour to some of the most famous attractions in Kyoto. The tour was very well organized and proceeded as planned. I absolutely enjoyed every single attraction and the tour guide gave an excellent explanation to every location.

The tour was great except for the Kyoto Handicraft Center. The luncheon buffet was "ok". We had thought that there would be more vendors selling merchandise but there were only a couple of stores with not the best of deals. The tour to the different areas were great though. Our favorite was the Golden Pavilion and Sanjusangendo. Great cultural experience!

The tour was quite good..we visited a good number of places and it did not feel rushed. The guides were interesting and full of facts and the meet/greets were punctual and welcoming. The afternoon tour was better than the morning tour...mainly because the guide was funnier which made the places more interesting. We missed going to Nijo Castle during the morning tour 'cos it was closed on Tuesdays which was a real shame. Would recommend this tour to our friends. The Kyoto Imperial Palace was a bit of a let down but not sure whether it is because of the guide or just the place.

The trip was quite rush, don't really have time for phototaking. The guide took time to explain every place we visited. Too bad we can't really hear her clearly as our group was rather big and her microphone was too soft and she walked really fast! We have to rush to catch up with her. ...but overall experience was good.... would still recommend the trip.
