This was an amazing tour and well worth cost. Nijo Castle was very interesting to tour and the Golden Pavillion was beautiful in the sunlight the day we toured. The Japanese gardens are outstandingly beautiful!Reviewed by: Collie, January 2014
We would highly recommend this tour if you have a short stay in Kyoto. Enjoyed every part and the guide was very informative. Learnt a lot on this tour, which included a variety of historical sites, and a bit of shopping.Reviewed by: Leslie L, January 2014
The tour was very well organized, meeting us at the hotel and taking care of everything. Time at venues was right except the last, which could have allowed more time for shopping. The sites are spectacular and the guide had an excellent grasp of the history and presented it in a most enjoyable and understandable way. I do recommend this tour as an introduction to Kyoto, but if you have the time, also go out and explore on your own, which our guide encouraged with helpful ideas.Reviewed by: Roger G, March 2014
Saw several sites which was great. However, was very rushed at the final stop which we thought was the best stop and would have liked more time (or daylight hours) to be there.Reviewed by: Vickramjit S G, January 2014
The tour is actually 2 half day tours back to back with a very long lunch in between. Time allocated for lunch was too long, nearly 2 hours and the food not that great. The guides themselves are good though.Reviewed by: Robin C, January 2014
