    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.

    Our tour guide is Satomi, she’s very informative and helpful as well! The overall tour was a quick one, but no regrets as you can visit all the famous heritage places in Kyoto! Totally save your own travelling and planning time!

    Tour guide Jun was good, communicate in english, average lunch provided, fuss free on transport. However long walk at 1 of the attractions might be tedious for elderly. For people who like to get to the top of Tori Gates, the duration is not enough for you to do so.

    A pleasant trip. Tour guide is good, knowledgeable, friendly and humourous at times. She also gave some good tips on where to go around Kyoto. Get to see many places within 1 day.

    I’m glad I purchased this tour. The tour guide was so amazing and knowledgeable and took us to the spots we wanted to see. The bus was nice too and clean. If you can’t decide which tour to take, I recommend choosing this 1 day tour. Worth every penny!

    Worth it to see all the major sites of kyoto in one day. The schedule was packed but enough time for picture taking. The tour guide should be stricter with timings because other participants dont follow the timings on the dot especiall meeting times at the bus, this affecting some free time in the sites. Lunch was nothing special. Bus was comfortable. Tour guide was friendly.

    The tour went to all major tourist atttactions in Kyoto except the Sagano Romantic Train. The tour was fast paced and won't leave much room to go souvenier shopping if that's your plan in Kyoto. Must try is the food near the Fushuni Inari shrine to get authentic Kyoto street food. All attractions are stunnung but when we went there, the Kiyomizudera temple was under renovation so not much pics of it. Overall a great tour. Our tour guide, Yurika, was also very knowledgeable about the places and very helpful even after the tour is over wgen we were in Osaka station trying to get around.

    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.
