Lovely way to see Kyoto. Our guide, Kaz, was fun and informative. Because the group is small (there were 6 of us), it was much more enjoyable then parading along with a larger bus tour. We enjoyed chit chatting with one another as we strolled along. I was staying in Gion and that is also the last stop of the tour so it worked out well for me. I just walked a couple of blocks to my hotel. We did spot Maiko too!Reviewed by: Panda, November 2013

The good news is that the guide, Kaz was friendly. The bad news is that we were clearly misled. There was no mention in the tour description that this would be a walking tour and that we would be taking trains in between locations. We expected a small bus – like a regular tour. We wasted too much valuable time walking to and waiting for trains and then walking to and from the sites. Since we only had a few days to spend in Kyoto and since there are very many things to see and different tours to take, our time was valuable. Too valuable to have wasted any of it inefficiently on a walking and train tour instead of being transported in a small bus. The others on the tour all made the same comment – that they would not have taken this tour had they known. We believe that the tour company running this tour was dishonest in not properly describing the tour. For this reason we would never again take a tour operated by this company.Reviewed by: Albert S, November 2013
The guys who showed me around were great but I was the only individual on the tour so wasn't terribly comfortable. It was something I maybe could have done on my own. But it's great meeting people and learning new things.Reviewed by: wookie100, October 2013
