This tour allows you to experience the key tourist highlights in Kyoto in an efficient manner. It's your best bet for a full day comprehensive tour when you are pressed for time. The bus was comfortable and the tour guide was funny and spoke great English.
Quite satisfied with the efficient time deployed for this tour and certainly enjoyed the walks in the cold. It would have been difficult to cover the multiple sites on our own as timely as the tour. Good balance of "free time and organized tour activities.
This tour provided a coach that dropped us to several temples in Kyoto that reduced much travel time and walking distance that was good for a family with elderly. The tour guide, Sammy, was friendly, helpful and informative who gave us a relaxing and enjoyable day.
Despite the torrential rain, our guide June made the trip extremely pleasant. He was extremely helpful and friendly. I loved this tour because it covers the highlights of Kyoto, including the Bamboo forest (which a lot of tours don’t). I still had to take another half day tour to see Nijo castle and The imperial palace, which are not included in this one. Hopefully that would save you some time on your research.
Very Good experience.
Our Guide June was very kind and understanding. He always tried to share information of different places which were not part of one day trip.
Though it was very hot but trip was awesome.
