We hoped the bullet train would give us more time in Kyoto but other than that, the trip was great.
Had agreat time guides were prompt and efficient. Enjoyed the temples.
staff before and after bullet train excellent.... host on bus tour of kyoto, could have been bit clearer...
A fantastic trip. All English-speaking staff who guided us during the tour were friendly and helpful. Since our tour lasted just one day (exactly, 12 hours including over four hours traveling on the bullet train between Tokyo and Kyoto), we could have brief visits to three temples.
Very good and personal service. Well organized and everything on time. Very interesting places for visiting, good food. The afternoon trip does not go to the golden pavilion. Would be useful to know which objects will be visited beforehand, so that the expectations can be adjusted. Thanks - did not expect that level of service for one person. The journey on the train absolutely wonderful, but the seet could have been on the Mount Fuji site. The preferences for the trip could include this option.
For a short Yokyo stay (we were 2 days) a great way to absorb variety. Hotel midday meal was oustanding!.
Excellent day out. The three of us were well looked after at every stage of the tour, could not praise the tour guides enough and would like to arrange further tours in this region in the future.
Very enjoyable day. Bullet train to and from Kyoto was a great experience. Guide in Kyoto was excellent and the three sites on our tour agenda were interesting and beautiful.
This was a very good tour. The staff were incredibly thoughtful and helpful.
Fantastic! We were met at each leg of the trip by a friendly guide who spoke English (as advertised), and helped us understand what we were seeing, and what we needed to do next. The bus guide to the temples was excellent! (would give it 5 stars if we could have had a few more minutes at each stop, and if there was a choice for lunch other than the hotel buffet...)
Train ride was perfect, time in Kyoto too short, should skip lunch and do more touring.
Very well organized and very efficient. If you need to do a day-trip from Tokyo to Kyoto, I'm pretty sure this is the best way. Though I will need to visit Kyoto again and spend more time, since 1 day is only a tasting for this city. Lunch was excellent, better than I had expected though, I would have preferred Japanese cuisine rather than western cuisine to complete the experience. Our tour guides in Tokyo (who dropped us off at Shinkansen/train station) and at Kyoto, were both superb. I visited during November-end, and the fall colors were emerging in Kyoto as well. So basically the tour exceeded my expectations. If you need to do a 1-day trip from Tokyo to Kyoto, I can't imagine a better option.
great tour if you have limited time to visit kyoto. very well organized from tokyo to kyoto.
If you have limited time and don't want to miss Kyoto, this is a great day out.
