This is second time using Kyoto tour. First time my wife and I enjoyed the tour 13 years ago. This time bringing our children along. Lunch break was held at same location which was all familiar. It's worth it and no complains.
Really great tour. Guide was fantastic and the lunch stop was good, compared to the quality of most tour lunch stops.
The guides were very informative and had a great depth of knowledge. Come highly recommended from me.
Beautiful sights on this tour. The highlight was the golden temple.
Fun and informative. Make sure you don't book on a holiday, those places can get pretty crowded on silver week.
Excellent tour, all staffs from the tour company are friendly and good services. We are like it all the place we went. In the near future we will use Viator to book our vacations again and recommend my friends to use it.
In one day I saw a lot! The guide was good. What I really appreciated was the guiding to get to the station and the bus in Kyoto. And even at the end of the tour there was a lovely girl/guide to bring me back to Osaka!! That was really fantastic. I really liked the Japanese lunch!!
The tour from start to finish was great worth the time to go. The hosts very very knowledgeable great tour
great tour! Hiro-san wa taihen ii desu. great sense of history, of humor and was very able in assisting us for anything. will submit more later.
JTB did a very good job in organizing the visits and we had a great time and enjoyed Kyoto very much.
very nice to see, such a beautiful city, great and beautifully presented luhch it was an incredible experience.
This is a must do if you're going to Kyoto! Yes, it was exhausting seeing so much in one day, but it gave us the chance to see all the more popular sights at once and other days could be focused on the "out of the way" locations. Lunch wasn't great, but it was a planned meal that we did not have to worry about. The best part was that the final stop is a short walk to the Gion District, so we just left the tour (informing the guide of course) walked to Gion for sightseeing and dinner, and took the trains back to our hotel. All in all this is well worth the money!
Very good and informative. We enjoyed it very much. Buffet lunch was good (tasty food) but time given for lunch could be shorter so more time could be spent on touring places of interest and souvenir shopping.
Beautiful places. Kiyomizu temple is a must see for the scenery and the shopping.

Interesting trip but to speedy. Tourist need time to visit interesting places and not to visit like all japanese people are visiting whole Europe in 1 week.
Highly recommended if you have only one day in Kyoto or Osaka and haven't explore Kyoto. Great sightseeing experience especially Golden Pavillion, Sanjusangendo and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Apart of that, Nijo Castle brings interesting knowledge about the Shogun and the Imperial lifestyle during the ancient time.

Great English guided tour to some of the most famous attractions in Kyoto. The tour was very well organized and proceeded as planned. I absolutely enjoyed every single attraction and the tour guide gave an excellent explanation to every location.
We loved all the places covered in this tour. The pacing was just right. Guide gave us time to explore the places on our own. I just wished the tour included an option to take dress up with Japanese kimono. We would have loved to be in on that but couldn't as the time would not allow it.
1. There are NO cumpulsory stops at Silk Centers or Sushi shops. The tour guide sticks to the itenary in the brochure.
2. All the Six important places are covered at a fairly leisurely pace.
3. The guide was knowledgeable and pointed out to us, the subtle differences in the paintings and seatings of the various halls of the palace.
4. We had ample time to try out touristy things like walking from the first Love-Rock to the second with eyes closed!!!!!!!
It was very good. They make sure that the English speaking tour guide comes with you on the train from Osaka and back. The tour in Kyoto was very informative.
