Going on this day tour was an efficient way of seeing the major attraction sites in Kyoto. There was about 40 people in our group and we went to Kyoto by bus. Overall, a good experience.
Kyoto is a very very nice town and the tour guides are very nice people. I even got tips from them :)
In one day I saw a lot! The guide was good. What I really appreciated was the guiding to get to the station and the bus in Kyoto. And even at the end of the tour there was a lovely girl/guide to bring me back to Osaka!! That was really fantastic. I really liked the Japanese lunch!!
good guide better if a smaller group were assembled
The tour was good! The guides were very friendly and helpful! They always ensure that we as tourist are free of doubts as they always check are we sure with what they are saying and ask us if we have any question regarding Japan as they are willing to help us out!
