What To Expect

Explore world famous Kyoto in the morning, one of Japan's most important historical and cultural centers, known for its beauty and fascinating geisha tradition. Tour Kyoto's UNESCO-listed sites including Nijo Castle, built in 1626 to provide lodging for Tokugawa Shogun, and Kinkaku-ji Temple, or more aptly known as the Golden Pavilion for the thin layer of pure gold that covers it. Gain exclusive access to the Kyoto Imperial Palace and enjoy a delicious Japanese-style lunch. On arrival in Nara, you'll explore the beautiful green grounds and meet the famous nodding deer of Nara Park plus get the opportunity to enter the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Todai-ji Temple (and the Great Buddha) and Kasuga Taisha Shrine. Comfortable coach transportation is provided, making this a stress-free way to sightsee two cities in a day!

    The guide with the flower was super knowledgeable and approachable. Highly recommended!
  • Tan 24 Jun 2017
    The tour guide was knowledgeable and shared interesting tidbits of Kyoto and Nara with us. It would be good if he could also accompany us for the Golden Pagoda tour and explain the history for better appreciation. Overall, good tour and highly recommended to have a feel of Kyoto and Nara!
  • ANTHONY 22 Jun 2017
    Awesome tour and activity especially the deer park at Nara Tour operator seemed to reserve seats but no on show up in the reserved seat .... just bizarre
  • Maria Isabel 21 Jun 2017
    Even though it was raining, we enjoyed the trip thanks to our courteous and well-informed tour guides. You ask them a question about the tour, they will answer willingly and will give you extra information. It was also fun to encounter a Japanese deer, they bow to you as a sign of politeness!

    All you want and need to learn and know about Kyoto and Nara, you'll get it from this tour. The two guides are so much helpful and made the two trips an interesting and fun learning-filled experience.

  • dong 3 Oct 2015
    Our guide was knowledgeable and polite and the tour is worth taking by anybody who wants to visit Koyoto. The lunch could have been better.
  • Paras 20 Sep 2015
    The tour schedule is good. A bit hassle but generally it was fine because you have to squeeze a lot of famous places in Kyoto in half of the day. The tour guide is very supportive.
