    The guide is very friendly and helpful. The experience is excellent, but the food is a bit disappointing.

    The English language electronic guide was pretty average, but the restaurant and meal were superb, as was the visit to Gion Corner. Would have preferred more time there instead of the night view from the mountain.

    Most of tour participants expressed dismay at Gion Corner Performing Place so full already when we arrived, chairs available only were scattered and at the back. But Gion performance superb, amazing district so full of culture & history. Tea ceremony with Maiko & dinner superb.

    The performance of the geisha part is very beautiful and moving, raving is also very interesting, even the play is very novel. Candlelight tea ceremony experience very well. Fly in the ointment is the day led the tour guide almost did not explain, did not take us in the park only area tour, after the show actually went straight to the restaurant, some disappointment.

    Japanese traditional performances are rich in content, refined cuisine is simpler than imagined, but the hotel's interpretation and tea room experience is very exciting!

    Dinner fine food is very good to eat, tea experience is also very good, but the tour guide Miss English is really not very good, and did not take us to visit Gion Park, read the performance went straight to the restaurant.
