Although this was by design a short, half-day trip, it definitely covered some of the must see locales in Kyoto. Our itinerary had us staying in Osaka, but we were advised that Kyoto would provide some better sights and history, so we signed up for this trip, which had us take a bus to Kyoto and a train back--that said, we actually had a tour guide with us for the train back, so there were no issues finding our train which would have been relatively straightforward anyway--Japanese train stations can be daunting, but are well-signed with plenty of English-speakers to assist wayward travellers. All 3 specific locations visited were amazing, and the guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke English fluently--a marvelous time!
We enjoyed this tour from beginning to end!
The tour employees were with us every step of the way.
Their English was great. We understood everything they said.
In hindsight we should have booked with Viator in Toyko
instead of the Holland America Cruise Line tour.
It was very disappointing.
Next time we will certainly look into the Viator tours first.

Lots to see in the morning. Staff were friendly and informative. Very professional. Only problem was too little time at the 3 shrines.
Great tour. The tour guide is very knowledgable and has a good sense of humor.
My family and I is fully satisfied with this tour. Our guide is so helpful and always smiling. Our children learned a lot from this tour that they can share beautiful and memorable stories to their friends.
The tour was as described and was well planned. I enjoyed the tour guide and the other guests. The sites were beautiful and interesting.
Guides were on time, very friendly and accommodating. couldn't ask for more.

The morning tour was great! I have no complaints about it.
Efficient way to visit 3 places of interest in half a day with a very good and knowledge guide. Recommended for people with limited time but wants to visit these 3 places of interest
This tour was very interesting and a must tour for people who have penchant for Japanese history. It was well organized, too.
Overall, very nice tour. I met the tour guide (first tour guide) at Granvia Hotel Osaka and later with a group of other tourists we took the JR train to Kyoto. At Kyoto, a coach was waiting for us, and we visited the Nijo Castle, a temple and Kyoto Imperial Palace. The whole trip was well-organized. The tour guide (second tour guide) at Kyoto explained everything clearly. Later at around 12:30pm, I was sent back to the hotel near Kyoto JR station, and the first tour guide took be back (by train) to Osaka. Thanks Viator!
Nice tour, kindly Guides, but the time is very short for those 3 visits.
