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!!!!
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.
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.
Trip was very organized ain't inetresting, Kyoto is really worth seeing, one day gives you an overview, to see it in more details you need to spend few days there.
Excellent and well co-ordinated tour. Temples visited Sanjusangen-do and Kiyumizu-dera were beautiful and not to be missed. Guide was friendly and spoke good English. Wish we had more time at the temples but such are the constraints of group travel and needing to catch the bullet train back to Tokyo. Very deserving of a 5 star rating!
I thought it was great overall. My only small issue was that there was a lot of standing around and waiting--before, during and after at the meeting place in Kyoto. The places we visited were excellent. The guide was excellent.
This was an excellent experience. All the tour personnel were highly professional and very attentive. Every detail was taken care of by the guides. I especially appreciated the attention they took to making sure we got on the right train to Kyoto because I found the train stations in Tokyo very confusing. The guide in Kyoto, JC, was very good. She told us interesting information about each site and also entertained us with amusing stories from previous tours. I thought she was a highlight of the tour. I would definitely recommend your company to anyone who wants a quality tour at a very reasonable price.
Great tour, everyone that assisted were very nice and everything was organized very well.
Well organised tour with helpful staff at each stage of the trip. Fantastic tour guide in Kyoto- very entertaining and informative. Great locations visited.
Fantastic tour !! Everything was perfect from the beginning. We met a very kind and professional Japanese tour guide in Kyoto. We will come back soon in this fantastic country.
The tour was excellent! Kudos to KC, our tour guide in Kyoto. He was an excellent guide, with his insights and entertaining comments. He sure did make the tour so much fun, despite the heat. THANKS!
First rate service, as expected of Viator. Everything was smooth and very pleasant.
The places were amazing but it was rushed. The train and food were good. The guides were very helpful.
