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.


Japanese theretre in a nutshell. Perfect event organised.


would of liked more time walking between the performance and dinner venue.


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.


really loved this tour, the guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. All aspects of the tour were perfect, even enjoyed having the vegetarian meal even though I don't usually eat vegetarian meals, great experience
