Maiko dinner and tea ceremony is something that one should experience when in Kyoto
Our guide Sachiko was wonderful. She was really knowledgeable and made the long walk to top of the castle seem like a breeze! She really went above and beyond her duties to make everyone feel comfortable and enjoying the trip. All in all, an amazing place to see.
We had a great day at Himeji, made all the more special by our guide Tyco. She was very knowledgable, liked a laugh and interacted so well. Himeji castle is a magic place and a must see. Akashi bridge is nice but a filler really. I would just do Himeji castle.
The castle was insane and the tour guide had extensive knowledge on the history of the castle as well as the importance of the town. Highly recommend as it was an overly impressive structure with great views and impressive locations. Would not have wanted to attack this place.
Our guide for this tour was fabulous! She goes above and beyond for her group, she is very informative and she cared for her group. We had a small group which was great, but there is a lot of walking, so be prepared. The castle is gorgeous! The lunch was very delicious also! It was a great day! The bridge was also interesting.

We were lucky enough to have a private tour with our guide Yuki as we were the only 2 on the day. Yuki was an information tour guide with superb english cracking jokes too. The buffet lunch was delicious and throughout the entire tour we did not feel rushed at all. We would highly recommend this tour for any first time visitors of Kyoto.
The steps up the castle were steep with low ceilings. From an architectural and engineering standpoint the castle was very impressive. We also were lucky going during the winter off season so there were no lines. We did not see the garden because of the winter weather but the Akashi bridge was also a fun highlight. Overall this was a great experience and our guide was both friendly and informative.
Saiko was the best tour guide! had such good knowledge, keen to show the group the best places for photos
This is a lot of walking but very enjoyable. Met some great people and our tour guide was the best.
absolutely wonderful, tour guide fantastic very helpful no question too difficult, would use you again
My two daughters and I were the only people on the tour that day. Our tour guide, Gucchi, made it fun, interesting, and enjoyable. She answered our questions, kept us moving, and told us informative and interesting facts about the areas where we visited. Himeji Castle was incredible but be prepared to walk along slippery wooden floors and steep steps in your socks as you check in your shoes at the door. The gardens are extensive, beautiful and peaceful. The bridge, a modern day wonder, was quite interesting too. I'm very glad I took the tour, and if I had to spend the day in Japan with a stranger and see these sites, I'm very glad I did it with Gucchi!
