    Pretty good tour. The guide were very good and helpful, and provide good explanation of the temples visited. I took a point off the score because of the tight schedule. Really could have visited 1-2 less sites. Not enough time to roam at any of the sites.

    The morning part of the tour viewing castles was kind of like viewing museums. The afternoon tour of the shrines and shopping district was a bit better.
  • Becky 11 Mar 2017
    Everything is fine except that the lunch and restaurant are mediocre. Spent too long time in lunch venue.
  • Carmen 22 Feb 2017

    My parents thoroughly enjoyed this tour, which covers almost all of the must-see spots in Kyoto. It's great for seniors with mobility problems.

    Tour was awesome. Locations were very excellent. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and her English was very good. Driver was friendly. I would recommend this tour to first timers to Kyoto.

    Amazing tour, lots of information, great views, very convenient. Must!
  • dong 30 Aug 2015
    A very good tour if you have limited time in Kyoto or want to make sure your trip includes the "main" tourist spots. I would recommend it for people that don't want to arrange there own train/bus fairs and don't mind having to stick to the strict time schedule (and you are in Japan so it is very precise)
