    It was a great tour, the driver was very knowledgable and a kind person. I enjoyed the trip and he actually took great pictures. Usually when people say they are professional photographers and they use our cell phones, it usually is a monicker, but they actually took great shots.

    I was lucky because the guide is a cute, strong and professional guide. He took lots of beautiful photos for us and introduced us the history of temple and attractions.

    Lovely experience with the Rickshaw tour. Our 2 tour excellent guides, Shun and Tsuji really showed us around Arashiyama and took great photos of my family. The agency were really accomadating as well. I changes my tour times twice and they really helped to suit to the times requested. Highly recommended for travellers who want to have a quick view of Arashiyama.

    Excellent customer service and wonderful tour, highly recommended for those on tight schedule as the 1 hour tour covers key sights + 1 temple visit
  • Verna 19 May 2018
    A really enjoyable tour. The tour guide were really friendly, talkative and could share a public knowledge about the spots we were passing by along the tour well. Had done a reschedule for the tour because we had to move to another apartment on the previous selected date, but with the help of Klook staff, it was not a fuss at all. Thanks Klook..

    Awesome rickshaw ride and really worth it!!! Two thumbs up!!! Our drivers were friendly and professional. Their photography skills were great too where they helped us took beautiful and stunning photos during the ride.

    Remarkably nice drivers. No problem whatsoever as they are welcoming. Literally when they pass by other people on Rickshaw or pedestrian they give a polite greeting full on with a positive jolly attitude Its not easy to miss. From Arashiyama (Tram) just go left towards the bridge and look right before crossing the bridge, theres a line of Rickshaws already. From Arashiyama (Train) just go past the bridge! can't miss. (left side) The rickshaw company will also email you for cofirmation so thats a bonus in easy communication :)
