We enjoyed this tour from beginning to end!
The tour employees were with us every step of the way.
Their English was great. We understood everything they said.
In hindsight we should have booked with Viator in Toyko
instead of the Holland America Cruise Line tour.
It was very disappointing.
Next time we will certainly look into the Viator tours first.
Lots to see in the morning. Staff were friendly and informative. Very professional. Only problem was too little time at the 3 shrines.
Great tour. The tour guide is very knowledgable and has a good sense of humor.
My family and I is fully satisfied with this tour. Our guide is so helpful and always smiling. Our children learned a lot from this tour that they can share beautiful and memorable stories to their friends.
The tour was as described and was well planned. I enjoyed the tour guide and the other guests. The sites were beautiful and interesting.
Guides were on time, very friendly and accommodating. couldn't ask for more.
Our guide was very prompt and met us exactly where where we expected. The sites were very interesting, and we spent plenty of time at each site. Our guide was very friendly.
The morning tour was great! I have no complaints about it.
Overall, very nice tour. I met the tour guide (first tour guide) at Granvia Hotel Osaka and later with a group of other tourists we took the JR train to Kyoto. At Kyoto, a coach was waiting for us, and we visited the Nijo Castle, a temple and Kyoto Imperial Palace. The whole trip was well-organized. The tour guide (second tour guide) at Kyoto explained everything clearly. Later at around 12:30pm, I was sent back to the hotel near Kyoto JR station, and the first tour guide took be back (by train) to Osaka. Thanks Viator!
Nice tour, kindly Guides, but the time is very short for those 3 visits.
On-time schedule and tour guide was very helpful. Good choice for a short tour of Kyoto
Good tour. I went on a Saturday, so no Imperial Palace as advertised. I would choose a different day if I could. Overall a nice tour.
All was very good and worth of price paid. No negative comments.
Fantastic if your looking for a quick cultural experience of Japan. Highly recommended.

It's worth doing because you don't expect anything less. We saw what we wanted to see, all within the time allocated. The guides were helpful and friendly.
This trip was good value for money and well organized, with pick-up and return times adhered to. The guide was very knowledgeable and had a good command of the English language, certainly better than my Japanese! Of the three attractions, it was only possible to get into Nijo Castle, but all in all it was a worthwhile trip.
I was disappointed that we were not able to visit Nijo Castle, although I understand the reason and the temple we did visit instead was very nice. I did not think our tour guide helped to enhance the tour experience. His descriptions were factual but not interesting.
