Guide was fantastic. Interesting and informative. Speaks clearly for all to hear. Covers a lot of ground in a short time. A+ compared to other international guides. Coordinator arranged 2 free taxis to meeting point. Dropped us off in city center!Reviewed by: Gordon S, June 2013
Again, a wonderful guide in Izumi. Very informative about the city of Kyoto and Japanese culture. Excellent sites to visit. Was particularly in awe of the one which no photographs were allowed at, ironically, Sanjusangendo. Definately a must see.Reviewed by: Carrie B, October 2012
Afternoon tour was a pleasant experience except it rained. I recommend umbrellas are provided by tour operators.Reviewed by: Bernie, July 2013
Since we came from Osaka in the morning, the pacing, timing and length of the afternoon tour was just right. The best place for me was Sanjusangendo, which unfortunately did not allow photos. I only wished that our tour guide that afternoon spoke clearer English or had a tone of voice that was not too high pitched.Reviewed by: Carolina G, May 2013
This is a tour to three of the most wellknown shrines and temples in Kyoto. The way of this tour I would consider to be very ‘japanese’: travelling around in a bus, short stops and sightseeing, then the next bus trip. Explanations to every sight a given in the bus. If you want to enjoy this you will have to like this kind of express tourism. Besides that there were no problems. The organization was very good, one should only take care about the pick-up since if you do not care your pick-up point may be set to Kyoto main. With an (english) phone call that was easily solved. For a trip of four hours the price was ok, but as said: you have to like this.Reviewed by: Kai F, October 2012
