nice tour, especially our nice tour leader from jtb sunrise japan, she is very alert to make sure everyone of us is in the right track, very clear english, good explanation, not a single complain. thanks
I gave this rating a 5 star because I have always loved Japan and was excited to go on a tour. the guide was OK but what made up for the OK tour was the efficiency of the Tour. The Japanese are so organized and we accomplished everything without delay. We had just enough time to do what we needed to see and discuss. I understand that the guide himself was ok because of the size of the group and he had to get information to everyone in a timely fashion. I was delighted to see everything I got to see on this tour. My brother, sister and I got off a tour in China with an amazing guide and I missed not having the same personal and dynamic guy in Osaka.
Hubby and I really enjoyed this tour which allowed us to visit best sites in Kyoto and Nara. Our guide speaks really good English and very funny with her good sense of humor.
this is an excellent tour. You get to see the highlights of Kyoto and Nara. The quality of service is top notch, as you would expect from the Japanese. Highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.
The gentleman who led us from the meeting point at the hotel to the bus, Mr. Yamamoto (?) is awesome in taking care of us! He is one of the best tour guides! Thanks so much.
In general, the Kyoto tour is worth the money with sightseeing tours, lunch, visiting famous places in Kyoto and Nara.
The pick up arrangement at a near by hotel worked well. All the guides were excellent
Awesome, well-paced tour. The tour guide, Yoshi, was great and friendly and the sights were worth seeing. The tour was on time and well worth the money. The Nara deer were adorable, but very hungry.
This tour was exceptional...so many sites to visit...didn't have a lot of extra time to wander around, but I enjoyed it all.
Wonderful and enjoying trip. The tour guide speak fluent English and she's really experienced. I LOVE IT.
With only a day free in Japan, I'm so pleased I booked this trip. It allowed me to see a lot more in one day than I would have been able to accomplish on my own. The tour guide was well informed and very pleasant. It gave me just enough of a taste to know that I'd like to go back to Japan!
What a fascinating tour! Since the Imperial Palace was closed on a Saturday, the alternative was still fascinating! Beautiful architecture and workmanship visiting the sights on the tour!!! The scenery were of postcard value. in spite of the crowds, the sights were just amazing! It would have been nicer to spend a few more time on each one but nonetheless, the time was enough to take in the commentary and take amazing photos for lovely memories! The deers at Nara Park were amazing!
We got picked up at the hotel by a cheery woman who took us on a train to Kyoto to join the other members of the tour. Our guide was funny and informative, always gave us enough time for photos and to leave the group for awhile. The sites were amazing and very beauti
This trip was excellent and very informative. The guides were very polite and made sure our day trip was memorable.
It was a very good experience. The tour was nice, very well organized and very efficient. The tour guides were professional, explained everything clearly, and had a very accurate timing management.
Thanks Viator and JTB for this wondeful trip.
It was very good as we were able to visit many places. The tour group was just the right number - 6 people so we were able to interact well with each other. The tour guide knew her Japanese history and her humor made the whole tour fun. It would have been better though if the lunch served was Japanese food.
