From the time I booked my tour, to the actual tour itself, I was impressed with the efficiency professionalism of the entire operation. The booking process was easy and I appreciated the follow-up emails from Viator.
When I arrived at the Granvia Hotel, my pick-up point to start the tour, I found the tour operators to be well organized, professional and friendly. All the staff that I came in contact with more than met my expectations of what I expect from a professional tour company.
I truly appreciated their punctuality and their candor about everyone really needing to pay attention to time schedules. My tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about what we were seeing, and I also appreciated the extra they provided, especially the stories.
At the end of the tour, when taking the train from Nara back to Osaka, my guide provided excellent information to me on how to get to my hotel because I would be getting off the train before Osaka Station.
I will recommend Viator and the tour operator to others, and would not hesitate to book another tour with you. Thanks for making my Osaka, Kyoto and Nara trip very enjoyable.

Best part are the people, you will never get lost, people will leave what they are doing just to lead you to your destination :-) then the castle and temple, it will bring you back in time. The best trip ever :-) SAFEST place!!!

Every part of the tour was excellent, from meeting our guide at the hotel to start the tour, to getting us back to the train station in Osaka at the end of the day.

really enjoyed the tour. the tourist guides were very friendly and accomodating. they were also very helpful from the meeting place at the Granvia Hotel, the bus and train stations to the Shinsaibashi area even after the tour- teaching us where to go and what to look for. we really enjoyed the historical sites and the kids didnt get bored. they were so happy with the encounters with the deers at the deer park in Nara. the lunch was good and even kid friendly. the tour was in over-all excellent and we will surely book again with you. thanks for the experience.

Excellent tour. The tour guides 'guided' more than I've had on other tours; at several stops, they actually led us through the site and provided great information. This also helped keep the schedule by reducing the amount of time spent finding everyone when it was time to leave.
The tour moved quickly, but I never felt rushed - for the amount seen in a day, the pace seemed just right. It would be easy to spend several hours at each of the stops, but if you have limited time in Japan this is a great way to see the highlights.
