    Everything was perfect when it came to this rickshaw tour. We only signed up for the 30-minute tour and even before we got to Japan, the customer service agent Larissa already emailed us to enquire where we would like to start / end the tour from / at, and if we needed any assistance with anything else. She was so accommodating, understanding & helpful that it made me wonder if the actual tour itself was gonna live up to that standard. When we arrived at JR Arashiyama station, we saw 2 rickshaw guys holding up a sign with our name on it, excitedly waving at us. They spoke awesome English, had the bubbliest personality & briefed us about the tour before we got started. Amazing views of the bamboo forest and also its surrounding areas, but what was even better was the information they shared with us on the places we passed by, and the amount of laugher we shared. Our 4 year-old boy enjoyed it so much, he even got the rickshaw guide to teach him how to say ‘dinosaur’ in Japanese. I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Arashiyama for the first time ! Priceless experience.

    The riskshaw ride was so worth it! I had my parents with me so this was perfect for them. We were in 2 rickshaws. The drivers were conversant in English, cheerful, humorous, and they gave narrations as we move along the route (less crowded) they had suggested. And they took such awesome pictures which we would have never done so on our own! Very comfortable and we were well taken care of during the one hour ride. The bamboo forest was the highlight .... simply breathtaking. I would highly recommend this experience. You can get a good overview of this place after which you can explore on your own. Many lovely memories here.

    A really enjoyable tour. The tour guide were really friendly, talkative and could share a public knowledge about the spots we were passing by along the tour well. Had done a reschedule for the tour because we had to move to another apartment on the previous selected date, but with the help of Klook staff, it was not a fuss at all. Thanks Klook..

    This was a memorable experience especially for my daughter who rode the rickshaw for the first time. Arashiyama is a huge place and it is tiring to explore the place on foot. Everyone at Ebisuya is very warm and polite. They even had a welcome signboard for us to locate them. We had 2 young guides who spoke English well. They gave good commentaries on the places we visited and took many great photos for us.
