You cant ask for more! The Kyoto tour was very good! I am amazed at the effortless experience these tour operators provide us with meticulous planning!! The full day tour included the most important places out of the innumerable historical places in Kyoto. English speaking enthusiastic guide gave basic information of Japan and Kyoto in a lighter vein. We had 45 mins stop for most places that included Nijo Castle, Kinkaku-ji Temple, Buddhist temple of Sanju-Sangendo Hall and the Kiyomizu Temple that offered panoramic views of Kyoto. Kiyomizu being the last stop, we left the tour to soak in the environment. I would have liked more time in each place but that is the compromise you need to do.
All in all, a great way to see Kyoto if you only have a day. Our guide was great fun and very helpful. The most impressive place was by far the Kiyomizu-dera temple complex.
Excellent trip, would recommend sound equipment when really crowded as it was impossible to hear the guide.
Despite the rain, we were able to join many sights in Kyoto. I recommend it as a good overview of the city.
Outstanding tour of the iconic Kyoto sights. The highlights involved the Sanjusangen-do temple with its 1,000 Buddha statues and the Golden Pavilion.
Tour was great! Highlight was the Kinkaku-Ji temple. I felt like in a fairytale.
The guid was friendly and provided us with Basic informations. regarding the time this was fine for me.
The transition between the morning and afternoon tour was way too long.
The day that I went on was beautiful and perfect. Our guild was good, vary knowledge and quite funny too. Its is actually hard to explain how awesome this tour was. All I can say is that I got some amazing photos and memories!!!
Everything I wanted to see of Kyoto in one day. Other than Arashiyama. It would be nice if they could sneak that in somehow, but the tour is packed full already. We really liked our tour guide, KC. Knowledgable, very nice, polite. Would recommend.
Excellent tour covering some fascinating sites. Guide was excellent on Japanes history.
Really informative guides with strong English skills. Both were charming and had a good sense of humor. Don't do full day tour lunch is terrible
The tour guide was both informative and humourous. I believe his name was Yasutoke sp?. Made the trip very enjoyable.
It was a great tour and it covered all of the places that I wanted to see in Kyoto in one day. Kyoto is not a place like Tokyo that one can just take the subway and get to places, so this tour really helped make visiting these famous places in Kyoto easy and comfortable. The tour guides were helpful and knowledgeable too! Highly recommend this tour!
Excellently planned tour. While the schedule seemed packed, there was enough time to do sightseeing at each of the attractions with some time to spare. Considering that public transportation in Kyoto is more bus-centric than train-centric, this is a better choice than self-guided tours during busier seasons.
Great tour, would not have been able to see this much in a day on our own. Tour guide was informative and helpful. Even got to see something we would not have had access to on our own. Great way to see a lot without trying to work it all out for yourself
Great way to see many of the sites in Kyoto in one day. I would have liked more time at the Golden Pavilion and Nijo Castle in the morning, but the time was sufficient to get great photos. More than enough time at lunch.
Both guides were very knowledgeable. The day was well organized except lunch was a little too long which made the day seem a bit long.
We would recommend it.
It was very informative, I had a lovely time on this tour. There was a large group of us and both our tour guides were lovely, funny and made us feel very welcomed.
Our tour guide was hilarious and made the day thoroughly enjoyable. The buffet lunch was great and the six attractions were well worth going to. Only downside is that we felt the full day was very long and the guide repeated himself a lot in the afternoon as new people joined after lunch.
An excellent tour - this is a great way to see the highlights of Kyoto's many historical sites in one day.
Excellent very busy full day sightseeing tour of Kyoto.
Knowledgable and entertaining guides
Would highly recommend it
Fabulous tour especially the visit to the Golden Pavillion and the Imperial Palace a highlight. Tour was well organised and our guide was excellent also. Highly recommended.
