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!


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)
