Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Kyoto and Nara Day Trip from Kyoto including Nijo Castle submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
The trip itself was great, you won't be able to see so much in such a short time if you go in your own
but you need to do your homework before this trip-read about where are you going, because it isn't always possible to hear the guide,and not everybody from our group understood her accent,unfortunately
But despite everything it was a great trip, we were so glad we went on it!
Can highly recommend this tour. Only way to quickly see so many sights and the guides were great.Reviewed by: S J O, October 2013
Nijo Castle was really interesting and well worth a visit, as was the Golden Pavilion which was really beautiful. I would not want to visit the Imperial Palace again. The tour group had to split into four lines and had to wait in the hot sun until we were told we could go inside the grounds. Not that much to see and there was a female security officer keeping within a short distance of us at all times.Reviewed by: Denise L, October 2013
The kyoto morning tour is always on a rush. we spent so little time in each destination and we feel pressured. the nijo castle does not allow photography and all we got was the exterior. The nara tour is better, it was laid back and i had a great time with the deers of Nara park. Seeing the UNESCO world heritage sites at Nara was a pleasure. Our tour guide Ms. Miko is very knowledgeable and was able to answer our queries.Reviewed by: EMMANUEL R, September 2013
We loved the Nara part of this tour however we felt maybe the deer park should have been last as it is so beautiful it would have been the perfect ending to an awesome dayReviewed by: Jody D, October 2013
