So happy we took this tour and got to see so much.

We had limited time in Kyoto and had spent too much time on the Tokyo metro gettin from place to place so I booked this for my 12 year old son and me. It was air-conditioned and so comfortable and took out the extraneous transport times from place to place. I loved that we had mostly time on our own at the temples, just given times to meet back. We opted for the tofu lunch and it was a dining experience that was just amazing. I've never tasted tofu like that! The buses seemed well coordinated with outher tour buses so we were never jam packed. The guide was just fantastic. When we didn't have umbrellas at the Golden Pavilion and it was pouring, she ran back to the bus to find us some. I've already recommended this very tour to friends going to Japan next week!

If you like mass tourism, this is for you

Kyoto Cultural Forest, Shrine and Temple Tour with Options There must have been over 80 people on this tour in two buses and another 20 buses following the same route / same attractions. If you like mass tourism and being bused around, this is for you! It was an effective but slow way to get to see 4 sites scattered around Kyoto which would have been very trying on public transport. It all worked very satisfactorily. All descriptions and commentary were in English and even the mass chicken lunch (with alternative options) was good.

Tour Guide Ms. Hiromi Kanai was Excellent!!

We had an excellent tour of Kyoto by Bus on 18 May thanks to the excellent Tour Guide, The Bus Driver (sorry we forgot the name) and the very good tour plan. We really enjoyed the sites visited, the lunch and the rich narrations about the historical venues that we visited. We will very at recommend this tour to all our friends visiting Kyoto. Thanks to GetYourGuide and Japan Paramount Tours for this memorable trip :-)

Excellent tour with many sites visited in one day.

Tour was excellent. The Temples, shrines, bamboo forest and the golden pavilion were all very interesting. Great tour if you want to visit Unesco sites and experience some Japanese history. Our tour guides were fantastic. Ryosuke was very informative and quite funny at times, making the tour very enjoyable.

A fantastic day seeing some of the best things Kyoto has to offer.

This was a great day visiting some of the best known temples and shrines in the Kyoto area. It was expertly led by Yurika who was knowledgeable, organised, funny and great company. She was welcoming, endlessly informative and so friendly and happy. It was a great environment to spend a day.
