    Totally had a great time with these group tour. Solo travelling is hard especially for a first timer like me. Thankfully, I booked the tour and it took me to a lot of destinations in Kyoto. God bless everyone! :) ♡♡♡

    This would have been really a perfect tour if Yurika, our tour guide did not leave us at Arashiyama and it was freaking freezy cold. Her instruction was clear to meet up at 3:15PM in the designated area she told us to meet. After she gave us the instruction, we immediately went to look for a restroom. We were not aware that the group decided to cut the tour short so when we went back to the meeting place right after we went to the restroom, they were already gone. We waited until 3:50PM and when I had a weird feeling that something is wrong I called the agency. That was when I found out what happened. The agency guy told us to take a cab to Kinakaku-ji temple and the cab driver told us that he will issue a receipt for us to be reimbursed by the agency as instructed by the agency guy that we spoke with over the phone. As Yurika was dropping us at Osaka station, I handed her the receipt and I asked her that we were told that the agency will reimburse the amount we paid for the cab fare but she just told us that the agency would not and we just went our way. I would have not ranted like this if it was really our fault. We value our time so much, we were never late during the whole duration of the tour, in fact we were always punctual and considerate because we understood that we are not the only participants. I hope this would not happen again to other participants who are planning to get this tour.

  • Jessica Si Qi 19 Feb 2019
    The tour included all the major sights worth seeing in Kyoto in a day, thumbs up for that. However, as such, the entire tour was a little rushed. This would be good for tourists who dont have much time, yet would like to have a glimpse of Kyoto's sights before deciding to come back on another trip. It's very touch-and-go though, so don't expect too much! The guide, Ryo, was evidently pretty new to the industry, but good effort seen in trying to round up all the tour members and keeping to the schedule. He could try to improve by interacting more with the tour group and giving more in depth/interesting history on the sights.
  • Sherman 18 Feb 2019
    Our guides can converse in English, Japanese and Cantonese. The time spent in each place was about an hour only, but it's enough for an exposure. We can always come back another day for more shopping and treats. Lunch was excellent btw.
  • REGINA 10 Feb 2019
    Oh well I gave full score because we enjoyed the trip. Its super convenient with transport & tour guide (Sami) bringing us around Kyoto within 1 day! Its definitely a tiring trip but I think its worth it. I will definitely bring my family for this tour again!
  • Oi Lin 10 Feb 2019
    a bit too rush and weather is not good during visitation. but overall is good.
  • Yoke 5 Feb 2019
    wonderful day tour ... good food, good transportaion, good time management.
  • PING WAH 29 Jan 2019
    Very good experience. The lady guide is very helpful and all the arrangement during the trip is excellent.
  • Marie Ethanya C 26 Jan 2019
    My mom & i had a wonderful time because our tour guide Yurika (hope i got it right) was very accomodating & informative with a touch of humor on the side. She made it a point to inform the elders and the babies’ parents ( that were in our group) about the terrain and walking involved in each sight that we’re about to visit so they’ll have an idea in advance. All in all if you only have 1 day to spare in kyoto, this is the perfect tour for you. It’ll cover all the basics. But just be prepared with all the walking, and be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
  • Loila 22 Jan 2019
    Awesome tour! Satomi, our tour guide, was very friendly AND informative. A lot of walking... but it was all worth it.
