The trip was well planned. We enjoyed the ride on the bullet train. The guides gave us lots of information about the shrines and temples we visited. A good value for the money.

This was a great tour. The tour company used was very friendly, informative, and made you feel comfortable during the entire excursion. Guides are at each end of the train ride. They take you to the proper, platform, make sure you are on the correct train, train car, and seat. When you arrive someone is there to meet you, take you to your hotel, and get you to the correct tour buses. Each tour (Nara, Kyoto morning, and Kyoto afternoon) was informative and wonderful. Getting back to Tokyo included a cab ride from the train station direct to your Hotel. I highly recommend this trip as a quick introduction to Kyoto and Nara from Tokyo.

Wonderful tour! Our guides were great. They helped to the bullet train and all along the way. The tours in Kyoto were very fun and we saw a lot of sights in a day and a half. Would definitely do again. Our hotel was very nice too!

Very beautiful and relaxing. Bus ride to Nara not so fun but it is well worth the ride to get to Nara and see the "honorable deer" haha not to leave out the monastery an shrines. WOW

Great tour which in effect was three mini tours bolted together - Nara afternoon tour, Kyoto morning tour and Kyoto afternoon tour. The transfer to Tokyo station for the Shinkansen was great and we were taken to the train and met immediately upon arrival. From there it was a short walk across the road to lunch before starting the tour.

Nara was great and the guide was both humorous and informative. The sights were saw were impressive and I liked the way we were given a leaflet at each venue giving some details and history of the locations.

The day two sights turned the wow factor up to 11. There was an element of feeling a bit rushed, but I suppose trying to see the most important sights of such a historical city in a day is always going to mean keeping moving. However, both the am and pm guides were very good and I left with a good understanding of what I was seeing, and cleverly, a desire to go back and see more!

My only real negative was that breakfast was not included in the overnight hotel. It was detailed on the information, but for the cost of the trip, and the requirement to be ready to be picked up quite early, this seemed like a mean omission.

Overall, a great, well organised trip, with excellent transport, guides and amazing sights. Thanks
