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!
Logistics for the trip were great, with very personalized service ensuring the train trip was smooth.
Fairly expensive, but the train trip was great (I opted for the green car). Kyoto was very different than Tokyo (where I had toured on a prior trip) so I'm glad I went. The tour guide in Kyoto was very informative and the places we visited were all interesting.
Lunch was excellent. Tour was very well planned. This is a great tour company.
the agent in Tokyo and Kyoto make it a very worthwhile trip. You get to see a lot in one day and their tour is great. Pick up at the hotel is very well organised. Staff is incredible polite and courteous.
The trip was well organized and I highly recommend it. The tour was perfect for travelers who does not have days to see the beauty of Kyoto. Though it was only a day tour, the tour guide(s) ensured that we are able to learn and love the place more. Can't wait to go for my next visit to Japan!
Everyone took such good care of us on this trip. From the moment we met our first guide in the lobby of our hotel until the moment we were escorted to a taxi for our final ride back. Every step of the way was well organized. We loved our tour guide of Kyoto. She was incredibly knowledgeable and funny.
I want to say door to door service was true to form on this trip. I wish we had more time in Kyoto but our guide who spoke spanish was completely amazing.
Service was outstanding, excellent, knowledgeable staff, excellent food. I cannot think of anything that could have been improved
A great introduction to Kyoto and the high speed rail system. It was a long day, but well worth it!
The tour was the best I have ever been on. Everything and everyone involved made this a most memorable experience. If you are in Japan DO NOT miss this tour.
