    This was one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. The guides were friendly and very helpful, especially when we got off and had to hail a taxi after our rickshaw ride. The ride felt more than thirty minutes as we did not feel rushed. Many photo opportunities. Kyoto is wonderful!

    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."
  • Chee How 6 Feb 2018
    The driver was very patient; even though we were late, he still provide us with the full 1 hr of travel.
  • CHEN-KUEI 12 May 2018
    To the agreed point, there is a brand that welcomes my name and it is easy to notice. After the contact, you will discuss the route with you first. If you want to get off at the original point or stop, you can still explain English in the whole way. However, if you are more than one year old, you may do this activity for the first time. The road crying is really not for nearby families and tourists. I'm sorry, little brother said he was too embarrassed to scare her. The doll stroller also took with him, but also trousers, super legs.

    Excellent service and warmth. And we have designated to go to the blue bottle of coffee, have helped us to carry out the process. It is a very one-hour route. From the Heian Shrine, you can enjoy the beauty of peace. Less tourists

    Wearing a kimono is not convenient to walk, rickshaw is the most ideal choice. The trip to the filial piety, the mother is super happy, Mr. Sasaki uses the English and Japanese commentary to guide and take pictures, which is really a very good experience.

    Mr. Ji, who is responsible for our journey, is not only super handsome, but also introduces all the attractions in great detail along the way, and also helps to take pictures, which makes people feel very good value for money. It is recommended to come to Kyoto, you must wear a kimono to participate in this journey, which will make you pay attention to it.
