The show was great and informative, but show up early for good seats as they are not assigned! The dinner and tea ceremony is the highlight, stunning!

Excellent tour!!! The variety of performances at Gion Corner was very interesting, as was the walk through Gion. The highlight of the evening was the dinner, its venue, and the tea ceremony.

This was a really cool night - the highlight was visiting the Ryokan which included a tradition dinner and tea ceremony in a traditional tea house. It was really great to see inside an authentic Ryokan and tea house and hear about the Japanese culture. The pickup and transfers with the Taxi's made it super convenient and met other friendly travelers too.

A really excellent evening. Collected and delivered to the Gion Corner for the cultural events which was as expected superb and then taken for a stroll through the Gion district - very busy and a bit of a mystery tour - I'm sure our guide knew where we were going but we were so taken with it all that we didn't really care. Arrived at the restaurant - actually more of a historical building and given a tour - a very special tea ceremony and then a wonderful Japanese meal - This evening was as delight and the highlight of our holiday to japan.

Dinner was great in a traditional restaurant, with wonderful healthy food, surprise gift from the hosts and with an excellent finishing tea ceremony. The cultural performance was good and we understood the aim of the performances to provide a shap shot of traditional customs in Kyoto, including Japanese puppetry, flower arrangement, tea ceremony and humour theatrical skit, however it felt over produced and the level seating did not allow a clear view. A nice evening out in Kyoto.

Very nice introduction to Kyoto culture. Very efficiently organise and great hospitality and tour from June.
It would have been better if we had some more time to stroll in Gion. The best part was the tea ceremony.

A great way to spend a night in Kyoto! Pick up was easy and very efficient. The show was great however would have been better if we'd arrived a bit earlier when we got there the only seats left were at the back and we couldn't really see the stage our guide spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable of the Gion area. The dinner and tea ceremony were the highlight of the night! They gave us a tour of the tradition Japanese house, The dinner even though was all vegetarian was AMAZING!! It was great to eat traditional Japanese food. I would definitely do this tour again!

Didn't know quite what to expect with the Gion by Night tour. The theater performance was enjoyable. I was especially impressed with the dance of the maiko. The dinner and tea ceremony was great too, although it seemed a little rushed at the end.

As someone with a previous interest in the culture of Japan, I found this to be a great evening. The tour guide was excellent and she ran things very smoothly. The performances in Gion Corner were fantastic, and we were convinced we had made the right choice when as we left, the queue had reached the outside of the theatre! We had had it almost to ourselves!
The tour continued with a traditional tea ceremony, where the symbolism was all explained to us, and we rounded the night off with tempura.
All in all a fantastic tour, and all the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Generally an enjoyable experience. The guides English skills were a little poor so this made it difficult to ask any in-depth question about the cultural aspects of our tour without receiving a puzzled .woahoa?as an embarrassed statement. He was however, very polite and friendly. The tour itself highlighted with a personal tea ceremony at a private Zen teahouse. Wonderful. The show was good but differcult to see as all these tourists kept wanting to see as well. I would recommend u get to the theatre early get a front seat. All in all a chance to experience this beautiful and complex culture.

This was a wonderful and pleasant experience. The cultural performance was good but nothing spectacular. The dinner experience which included the Tea Ceremony was very enjoyable. We were served healthy vegetarian food which was what we needed.
