Everything about this trip was first class. I would recommend Viator tours for any tour booking
Real nice excursion and better during the week versus on the weekends
Great tour if you are spending your days in Tokyo. Tour guide was excellent. Maybe one should spend the night also in Kyoto.
The tour was excellent and very informative. Would highly recommend this trip. Tour guide, Mickey, was very good
A very full day! The bullet train was fun (we went through a typhoon) and Kyoto is a very beautiful place. Well organised local guides made sure that everything went smoothly and we managed to visit three different places. My only gripe was that I didn't make any plans to stay longer in Kyoto. This trip was a taster and I wanted the whole plate!
Excellent Tokyo staff at start and end of tour. Very well organised and pleasant. Efficiently took us to the train platform. At Kyoto the English speaking Japanese guide was very pleasant and easy to understand. She did not rush us through the temples - gave us time to take in the sights. Great tour if you have limited time to see Kyoto, and bonus of an experience on the bullet train as well. Overall, great value for money as includes lunch and transfers at Tokyo to our hotel.
Everything happened as described. We could have had less time to eat and added another location to visit. The last stop was also extra long. I would book another tour thru Viator.
Everything was properly planned, but the weather was ugly. The tour guide was great and did his best to compensate by shifting to other places. at the end we did not feel sorry
The tour guides looked after us very well seeing us on and off the trsin. The Kyoto tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We immensely enjoyed the bullet train trip and the Kyoto Afternoon Tour.
Excellent! Recommend for those with very limited time. Guides on always schedule to greet me at hotel, take me to bullet train, meet at Kyoto station, Tokyo station, etc. The Bullet train ride was a "bucket list" item for me. Will definitely do it again. :)
This was a fun and exciting excursion to Kyoto. All the details were taken care of. Nice coach buses and excellent tour guide. Our lunch was excellent.
Excellent tour very well organized wish I had more time in Kyoto
Had the returm trip on the N700 and had s BMW taxi to my hotel
Highly recommend the tour
Great one day trip. Should have made it longer. The people who handled the tour were outstanding. Once I met them at the pick up spot it would have been impossible to get loss! Very cordial group. Kudos to them.
Very nice tour! I loved taking the Bullet Train from Tokyo down to Kyoto and they were very helpful to make sure everything went smooth. Kyoto was very nice and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind. I strongly recommend this tour if you want to do a day trip from Tokyo.
Everything went as planned as per your documentation. We were picked up from the Shiba Park Hotel and transferred to our bus. Our Tour Guide was excellent - very pleasant and helpful. We received informed and very interesting commentary throughout our trip. She made sure we knew exactly where and when we were to meet up, how much time we had to look around. We enjoyed the trip home by bullet train as well. She also confirmed our places for the following day when we went to Kyoto.
I was impressed by your service and punctuality. However there was a mix-up in the meeting time for this tour.
Since we had taken the Day Tour a day before we were told to be at Tokyo station waiting room at 7:15 for the Kyoto tour. The actual time to meet was 8:45 AM.
It was fantastic!!!! The ride in the Bullet train a great experience ,very comfortable and fast .
This was one of the most organised tours we have been on. We were taken to Tokyo station which is huge, then personally taken to our seats on the bullet train. We were met on the platform as soon as we arrived at Kyoto and taken to lunch which was excellent. The half day tour was absolutely fantastic - we had been in Kyoto the week before on a shore excursion from a cruise and it was great that this tour took us to totally different places. We were then escorted back to the bullet train and met at the platform in Tokyo where a taxi was provided to take us to our hotel - fantastic!
