History , the guide was very knowledgable. excellent, highly recommended .
Definitely recommended! The tour was fun and it took us the most fascinating places in Kyoto. Kyoto is indeed have a lot of beautiful and historical things to offer. I had so much fun and learned a lot fo things about Kyoto although i have to say that one day tour is somehow isn't enough to explore Kyoto.
The first part of the tour was amazing. The tour company said on the day I went that there would be five busloads of people on the morning tour. I was concerned I wouldn't be able to see anything. However, that turned out not to be an issue. The Golden Pavilion, Nijo Castle, and the Kyoto Imperial Castle were all great to see. The tour guide on the am part was excellent in explaining things and did a great job of moving a lot of people through some very crowded attractions.
Lunch was chaotic. We were told that there were too many tourists on the tour and those on the pm tour would be seconded for lunch. When we went through, on the first pass, most of the food was out and we had to wait an inordinate amount of time to eat anything. After the hall cleared out, it was much better and we got a fair amount to eat.
The afternoon sights were good, but not as impressive as the morning sights. This pm tour guide seemed annoyed, but did explain things in an understandable way. Overall, this was an excellent tour of Kyoto and allowed me to cover much more of the city than I would have been able to alone.
Really good experience. Can't fault it.
This full day tour was really very good. We could never have visited all of the sites that we saw in the same time on our own. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and her English was good. We were fortunate enough to have quite a small group around 20 as during busier seasons, the groups are much larger. It would have been helpful to have known beforehand that we'd have lunch at the Kyoto Handicraft Centre near Heian Shrine because then we wouldn't have made the effort to go there on an earlier date during our stay in Kyoto. We would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who has limite time in Kyoto.
Really enjoyed the full day tour, would not have been able to see this much on our own. Tour guide spoke excellent English and answered all our questions :
Fabulous day with wonderful sights seen. Only down side was the high number of tourists at these sights but this didn't spoil the day. Mike.
Fantastic tour! Our guide was quite funny and very enjoyable to spend the day with.
The castles and temples were absolutely gorgeous. No way could have seen all this on my own in one day. Lunch was way too long (almost 2 hrs)but other than that this tour was fantastic. Must do if in Kyoto!!
Wonderful tour, very informative with a great guide. Would highly recommend.
Good explanation about all the sites we visited
