What people are saying about Kyoto
One critical difference for Americans is the length of history as how It influences the culture. Be prepared for walking more than you thought you would.
Sean, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and took us to neighborhoods, shrines, temples and gardens we wouldn't have experienced otherwise.
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 :-)
We took the tour as a preview of visiting the tourist sights and really glad we did. Our guide was fabulous, very friendly and gave us lots of info and insights into Kyoto and Japan in our short time. We covered a lot of stops, both sights and visits to craft workshops. It never felt hurried, although we were constantly on the go, but at a nice easy pace. Loved it Meeting point was central, easy to use the app to book and find the meeting point. `after the final stop easy to find way back on own.
Yasumichi has a deep knowledge on the ancient Kyoto and the modern city. He saw us the old street with valuable comments. Also a good tips of how to move around Kyoto.
