Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Kyoto Rail Tour by Bullet Train from Tokyo. 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.
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!
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.
