Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Nara Afternoon Tour of Todaiji Temple, Deer Park and Kasuga Shrine from Osaka. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
I would like to do this tour again during a different season to see the different colours of the scenery.
Very worthwhile as I wouldn't have been able to fit Nara in otherwise. I was the only person to join the tour from Osaka, so I had a very informative guide to myself on the way to Kyoto and back.
Great afternoon though a bit busy. Good overview of what the area has to offer.
We loved everything we saw, although we were fighting crowds all the way.
This was a well-organised tour, and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. A most enjoyable afternoon.
Excellent tour guide who have provided lots of information. However, the tour was quite short for the price paid.
Did not spend much time in the Kasuga Shrine at all (only 15-20 mins). Couldn't go inside the shrine due of the new year preparation.

For my experience it was not good. I had taken the all day tour on Monday to Kyoto, with lunch included and it was wonderful. I was not pleased with all the travel involved with the Nara tour. I was coming from Nisinomiya. I found my way through Osaka to the Hilton, then my greeter who was wonderful and helpful took us by train to Kyoto, back on the bus and then to Nara. My time in the Nara area was around 1 hour and 45 minutes. We then were guided back to the train and the Namba station. The greeter was extremely helpful and got me on the train back to Nishinomiya to help cut back on the extra travel time. I wish I would of known how much travel was involved. I would of liked a little more time in the area.
