What To Expect

Explore Japan’s ancient capital and turn back time as you explore Kyoto’s must-see historical sites. After departing from Osaka, the tour will head to Fushimi Inari-taisha, a shrine with ancient origins dedicated to the god of rice and sake. It is most renowned for the thousands of orange torri gates that mark the seemingly unending pathways towards the hillside shrines. This iconic walkway immediatley evokes the symbolism of traditional Japan and makes for some striking photographs. Next on the tour is Kiyomizu-dera where you’ll have a washoku or Udon set meal lunch depending on your tour package. This traditional wooden temple is famous for its unique construction, serene tranquility and also offers spectacular views over the vibrant cherry blossom gardens. The guided tour will finish at the Kinkaku-ji Zen Temple, also known as ‘The Golden Pavilion’ – and for good reason! The top two floors are entirely covered in gold leaf and the image of this shimmering temple mirrored in the calm waters of the reflective pond will certainly take your breath away so make sure to have your camera at the ready!

    The tour was awesome and easy to use. We really had a great time.
  • Roxanne 11 Feb 2019
    This Tour is worth the money. Agree with the other reviews that the tour was a bit rush but if you just wanna see the main attractions, it was okay. Meeting place was quite hard to find and once you select a meet up point, you cannot change it as they are strict with the time and place. But u can have your drop off point in Namba near Dotonbori. We did not get the meal option since we have some snacks handy. Happy for an english speaking tour guide as well. Note: Bring cash with you as you have to pay for admission tickets if you get transport only. and there are no money changer in the area. Entrance is around ¥200 - ¥400 for the temples. This tour also requires A LOT OF WALKING so be prepared. Have a water bottle handy. And make sure to pay attention on the meeting place and time to avoid being left in Kyoto. 😍 Basically, you just paid for transpo and some historic info about the place, but most of time you are on your own. So, giving it 4-stars since it could be better. MUST TRY: Pecan Matcha Nuts when you go to Bamboo Forest. it's the best i have tasted! 🤗

    The day tour have a easy accessible meet-up point to begin with. Just approach any staff over there, they will be able to direct you to the right booth. With a bus to chauffeur the participants to the places that we will be visiting is a really good bonus as it was raining slightly on the day of event. The places that we visit are some of the popular tourist area and they are full of historical moments that are left behind. The tour guide is very nice and very polite to each of the participants of the tour. Overall, we enjoy the tour very much, just that the time frame for each site are not really long so we feel a little rush for us to explore
  • Rhea Jenica 9 Feb 2019
    Everything was perfect.. our tour guide Nana helped us alot..and gave us more tips in going to Dotobori(after the tour).. thank you Limon(cute bus..by the way ☺️🍋)& Klook!
  • Jun Jie 6 Feb 2019
    Bad tour guide. not fluent in english and very soft spoken. places were okay but better to go free and easy as no time constraints and should be cheaper than this. do not choose the lunch set menus as they dont taste delicious. recommend travellers to go kyoto on your own instead of this tour.

    Excellent service. The bus was clean. The tour was on time. They even helped us when one of our companion lost a wallet. They went above and beyond so we are happy with this tour. Good job!

  • Carla Isabelle 30 Jan 2019
    It was a good tour. The guide was very friendly and made sure everyone was well taken cared of. There was also enough time to explore the place, grab a quick bite or two, as well as buy some souvenirs around the area. Pick up point was also easy enough to find, it was a well-organized tour.
