    This was a wonderful day trip to get in the major historical sites in Kyoto. Our tour guides were outstanding! They were a wealth of information and very engaging and friendly. Prepare for a long day of walking and taxis, and well worth it!

    One Day in Kyoto
    Kim_O, Jul 2022
    Everything was wonderful! Our guide, Midori, was lovely and shared so many things with us! The weather cooperated and we saw a good bit of Kyoto in the one day we had there. We walked 20,000 steps! My favorite was the bamboo forest. It was so Zen. We also enjoyed the traditional Chinese breakfast, learning some Japanese history, the temples and the beautiful Japanese gardens. Would highly recommend!
