Interesting tour around Gion district and Yasaka shrine

Interesting tour of the Gion district which also included the Yasaka shrine. We were split into three groups of around 15 people each and it was easy to hear the guide at all times. She spoke very good English and had relevant knowledge of the area, answering any further questions we had. I had recently re-read Memoirs of a Geisha and found the tour to be a nice mix of recognition and new information. The pace of the tour was good. Bring some warm clothes because it does get chilly in the evenings, being outside all the time. I recommend visiting Maruyama park after the tour to grab a bite and mingle with locals (especially during sakura season).

Our guide was well informed on this subject and taught us a lot.

We learnt a lot about the Geisha and the area in Kyoto that they work in. For instance they are not called Geisha in Kyoto. Our guide was easy to understand and well connected to the Tea room network. Despite heavy rain for the first hour we continued on and enjoyed the tour a lot. Learnt so much and have been sharing my wisdom with all. Good value and informative.

Very comprehensive tour and excellent guide

The tour was very comprehensive and the guide spoke good English. I would have appreciated a bit more time to take pictures, which was difficult given the big size of the group and manubrio things to see. At the end we saw a Maiko!

Informative and fun. Good for the price.

Our guide was great and managed the large crowd well. We saw four Maiko-San, which was more than I expected. For the price you have to deal with a large crowd but the guide was super and I learned a lot!
