You cant ask for more! The Kyoto tour was very good! I am amazed at the effortless experience these tour operators provide us with meticulous planning!! The full day tour included the most important places out of the innumerable historical places in Kyoto. English speaking enthusiastic guide gave basic information of Japan and Kyoto in a lighter vein. We had 45 mins stop for most places that included Nijo Castle, Kinkaku-ji Temple, Buddhist temple of Sanju-Sangendo Hall and the Kiyomizu Temple that offered panoramic views of Kyoto. Kiyomizu being the last stop, we left the tour to soak in the environment. I would have liked more time in each place but that is the compromise you need to do.

All in all, a great way to see Kyoto if you only have a day. Our guide was great fun and very helpful. The most impressive place was by far the Kiyomizu-dera temple complex.

Excellent trip, would recommend sound equipment when really crowded as it was impossible to hear the guide.

Despite the rain, we were able to join many sights in Kyoto. I recommend it as a good overview of the city.

Outstanding tour of the iconic Kyoto sights. The highlights involved the Sanjusangen-do temple with its 1,000 Buddha statues and the Golden Pavilion.

Tour was great! Highlight was the Kinkaku-Ji temple. I felt like in a fairytale.

The guid was friendly and provided us with Basic informations. regarding the time this was fine for me.

The transition between the morning and afternoon tour was way too long.
