It was wonderful being able to get to all of these sites in one afternoon and not have to worry about finding my own transportation. Deer Park is absolutely a must! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and made the experience very worth it.

Ms. Yuki, our tour guide was excellent. Good command of the English language and gave informative narratives about the highlights of Nara and Kasuga Shrine.

The close-up encounters with so many Deer is definitely a start attraction. I actually witnessed the deer bow respectfully!. Beware stepping onto deer pooh. Nara is really a beautiful and serene place. Todaji temple is magnificient!

Overall a really great tour. My favorite aspect of the tour was the Kasuga Shrine which was unique in that it had so many stone lanterns on the way to the shrine. The Todaiji temple was also incredibly majestic and is so large that it dwarfs anything and everything around it. We were incredibly impressed. Our tour guide was incredibly humorous, knowledgeable, and a good story teller. We were impressed. The deer park was interesting, if you have not seen deer before. We found it to be gimmicky and touristy. We are of the school of thought that animals should be in the wild rather than in a park with their horns cut off being hand fed by tourist. That being said, I think the tour had so many positives that the deer park did not really take much away from the experience. We are glad that we went and recommend it to others.

Tour was great. Pick-up-point is easily reachable. Just be aware of the circumstance, that the Kyoto station is big. It might take some time to find your way through it.

The attractions were awesome. The guide was friendly and from a persoective of knowledge ok.

Unfortunately I forgot the name of the tour guide, but he was very funny and gave us great information of the places and the landscape until we got there. The temples were beautiful and deserve a visit, specially Todaiji with the massive statues.
The deer park is at the same place of Todaiji temple, and there is plenty of time to visit the temple and to play with the deers. They sell special cookies to give them, so if you buy the cookies, be ready to have a lot of deers gathering around you and maybe even biting lightly your clothes. It can be scary, but it's a fun experience! For those not willing to take such risk, there are deers laying around and taking naps, so you can gently approach and cherish them.
Unlike other bus tours, this one didn't feel rushed. We felt we had enough time to visit the places and take great pictures.

The tour was very good, allowing plenty of time for siteseeing. The guide spoke excellent English and was most helpful. At the end of the tour, we were returned to our hotel on the tour bus.

This was a great afternoon tour, if you only have a short period of time in Kyoto. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Todaiji Temple with the largest Buddha and other guardians were incredible. The massive amounts of deer in the area was equally enjoyable. We must have feed them 5-6 packs of biscuits which you can buy on the premises, as they provided a lot of great photo ops and were friendly to pet. Kasuga shrine was a great experience and were amazed by the sheer volume of the lanterns in the area, as well as more deer roaming freely around. Great Tour.
