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.
On this Kyoto Full-Day Tour we had an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable, provided a lot off historical information about visited places. He provided great service. We had wonderful time in Kyoto.
Did an EXCELLENT job! Nice transportation - various pick up and drop off options. Lots of information given on the bus traveling and at the sites! Could not have asked for more! Tour guide was VERY knowledgable and congenital.
My daughter and I felt the tour was very informative and it gave us a great overview of the area.
Fabulous sightseeing tour and it was very busy but well organised. It was a long day and tiring for a mature couple but worth it.
I had limited time in Kyoto so this was idea to be able to visit the major sites. it is essentially the morning tour and the afternoon tour with a lunch thrown in. Both tour leaders were fun and informative and gave us enough time to be able to have a quick look around despite it being a packed tour.
My only complaint would be on the lunch. We were on the second group to be called for lunch as our afternoon tour left later, but by the time we reached the lunch hall, there was hardly any food left, so didn't really get to eat much all day. It was a good thing I had some gummies on me to munch.
Really great tour. It was face paced, but that way you got to the see the maximum of sights in just one day. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch was poorly organized however.
Kyoto is just a stunning city to visit. By far my favorite city we visited while in Japan. This tour gives a full day of seeing some of the top spots of Kyoto. It rained the entire day, but our guide still took us everywhere and went out with us and happily explained all the buildings we got to see.
We had a wonderful time! We had 2 guides one in the morning and another one in the afternoon. Both guides very knowledgeable, helpful and funny. I wish we had 1/2 an hour more to visit each landmark, though.
A must! We did this tour with our children ages 11 and 13 and it was a perfect way to see the highlights of Kyoto. The guide was super informative and our driver was wonderful. The bus is very comfortable, there are plenty of opportunities for photos, snacks, bathroom breaks - you won't feel rushed at all. A great way to see so much in one day! The lunch was very good and we appreciated the chance to look at souvenirs without any pressure to purchase although we did since the art centre has great items! I would highly recommend this tour!
