    Our guide was amazing. :) It was a very very pleasant trip with him. We wanted to tip him in the end to say thank you; however he refused the tip and said that "this is not part of the culture."

    The driver was very patient; even though we were late, he still provide us with the full 1 hr of travel.

    可愛、努力的rickshaw driver ,雖然只有半小時的行程,但仍舊很努力的介紹,平安神宮、南庵寺的京都靜謐讓人很舒服!推薦!
  • PUI YIN 1 Dec 2017
    車伕哥哥極友善及會主動和我們影想, 路面因為大過多人而過時, 他也沒有加我們一分一毫, 也非常專業。

    很棒的體驗,雖然沒有中文,不過英文介紹方面,也很詳細有趣,讓我們認識到京都的故事以及有趣的歷史,一路上也介紹很多食物與景點,也建議如果秋天、冬天來的時候,一定要提早預約比較好。

    感謝村上拓督さん佐以大粒汗小粒汗的詳細又有誠意的解說,帶我們體驗與京都街上完全不一様的寧靜氛圍,平安神宮,南禪寺,哲學之道,銀閣寺,一小時竟飛的就結束了,超值得的行程!
