If you're short on time but don't want to miss Kyoto, this is the way to go. The guides for this tour are especially personable and caring and make the long day fly by.
Fantastic tour! I was the only person going from Tokyo that day. I was met at my hotel and then at the transfer bus station by my own private guide. She got me onto the bullet train and didn't leave until it took off. Then, in Kyoto, when the doors of my car opened, another guide was waiting for me to take to to an excellent, excellent lunch at a nearby hotel. Then, yet another guide got me to a city tour where there were other travelers and we saw the major sites of Kyoto. Then, the process was reversed to get me home. I felt pampered, safe and I had a great time. So glad I did this tour!
While not inexpensive this was a great experience. We were amazed with the level of detail and attention provided by the tour operator beginning with hotel pickup, literally walking us onto the train, meet and greet at the other end with lunch, half day bus tour merged with other groups which was probably the best the operator could have offered though not as efficient, then literally walking us back on to the train, and meet and greet and return to our hotel end of day.
Great tour and fantastic service by Viator/JTB Sunrise... Really enjoyed it.
One of the most beautiful places on earth. Your guide was fabulous!!!!
Terrific tour. Staff were amazing!!
First let me say I don't normally do tours. My preference would have been to stay in Kyoto and explore myself, but since I only had one day to get to Kyoto from Tokyo, tour and return, this was a great option. The tour was very well organized with good information about pickup spots, times, etc. The guides spoke reasonably well English and were very pleasant. The three tour sites visited in Kyoto were typical tourist spots, but that is just part of the deal. The guide was well informed and provided many insightful details. The tour fit my needs perfectly so I give it a 5 star, but if you are expecting a more casual pace in the destinations, this may not be for you.
This tour was amazing!
I really enjoyed this tour. Very efficient time spent in Kyoto for it just being a day trip. Travel guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Tour guide was excellent and the full day tour covered many of the most interesting sites in Tokyo.
