The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The three main parts of the tour sample important aspects of Kyoto culture. Bear in mind, you'll need a good pair of walking shoes for this tour.

The tour was great. Walking the back streets with a local is far more enjoyable then sitting on a bus. Easy walking and relaxed guide.
