    This is amazing. The tour gave us a general idea of the city we were going to explore in the next few days. I high recommend it to people who come to Kyoto the first time.

What To Expect

Hop on a bike and explore the backstreets of Kyoto in areas unreachable by bus or by foot. Experience the narrow streets of Miyahawacho, the second biggest entertainment district in the city. Ride past the vibrant Yasaka Shrine and nod to geiko women and their maiko (apprentices) as they stroll through the stone laden streets of Gion adorned in delicate kimono. Cycling through these traditional districts offers an unmatchable perspective of Kyoto. Break away from cliché tours and feed your inner adventurer!

    Friendly, informative and very gracious guide. Fun way to sightsee; allowed us to see different aspects of the city more intimately and get some exercise.

    The backstreet tour was quite easy and we really had a good time. Our guide Annie was soooooo nice. Highly recommend.
  • ChrisPin* 19 Aug 2015
    Miyagawacho is geishas' own district, quieter and less touristy than Gion (which is a quick walk away) but very active. We biked out to Miyagawacho's main street - one block parallel to the guesthouse's street - and watched the geishas at work. You can hear them singing and the raucous drinking games inside the teahouses.

    The best tour that you can imagine! Keiko was our guide and she is funny and kind... It was a pleassure! Do not think... Just book with they and meet The city ridding a bike!
  • Mark*** 7 Aug 2015
    We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits Kyoto. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. If you want to see a side of Kyoto that you might otherwise miss then this tour is a must.

    穿越一條條古老但充滿活力的街道,很記得見到了高聳莊嚴的八坂之寺。經過花見小路時,簡直是置身於古時的京都一樣,這條街都是餐廳為主。但所有的人都穿的很傳統,除了遊客。

    导游是位老太太,英语流利不过口音浓重。老太太体力很好,骑车飞快,但非常遵守交通规则,会照顾到全队人。时间合理,主动介绍的东西大多是照本宣科,但是你可以主动问她一些问题。经过的景点多是一晃而过,不过在天气好的时候半年骑行京都(范围可真得不小)也是一个不错的选择。对艺妓的介绍比较具体,值得一听。

    整條路都有專屬的自行車道,很好騎唷!嚮導非常有禮貌,跟我們聊了很多京都街道的故事。很棒的行程

    有什么比在一座不了解的城市骑行,到处看看更好的事呢??我们和Keiko一起骑行,真的太舒服啦。她的知识面很广,而且是个很可爱的人,在很多方面给我们补充了很多知识,了解了Kyoto的历史,我们之前从来都不了解这个城市。非常推荐这里。而且,在这里骑行非常方便,所以适合一切骑行爱好者来游玩来探索。
