What people are saying about Kyoto
My secretary mistakenly booked my tour on the day of my arrival hence I was unaware that I actually missed it. I went to the Villa Namba thinking that it was this morning. When they were looking for my name, they couldn’t find it. I was trying to ask the staff there if I could rebook, unfortunately none of them could speak English. Fortunately they were still able to accommodate me, thanks to our English speaking guide, Adrian who was great!
My partner and I really enjoyed this experience, the guide was personal and provided an experience we were interested in. If he didn't know the answer to a question he would research it and get back to us. Overall we found it lovely to learn about Kyoto and have someone take control for 8 hours (no more maps or wondering where to go next). For these reasons I would recommend the tour even if you've been to Kyoto before.
We were given a background of all the places we went to while we were still at the bus. Then when we reached the sites, we had enough time to explore the places on our own. Our tour guide, Hiromi, was very knowledgeable and sweet. She spoke English well. In addition, the bus ride was very smooth and we were able to rest while we were in the bus.
The tour was very well planned and we had plenty of time to enjoy each activity that we set out to do. The locations that the bus took us to were convenient and easy to return to after each outing had finished, a very good way to experience some of the culture of Kyoto and Nara in a short amount of time
It was good and very efficient. We could reach many places in a day. The best is the NARA with nice scenery and deers. The tour was good for people who want to go to many places with limited time, otherwise, you may found to go by themselves and not traveling in a hurry.
