What people are saying about Kyoto

The tour basically enters the Fushimi Inari shrine area from the back, meaning the crowds are pretty thin at first and you have a moment there to yourself. But first we paused at a bamboo grove that was otherwise empty of visitors. The path through the shrine itself was inspiring and scenic. Our guide Suzy explained the significance of statuary, rituals and other significant sights along the way. We stopped for some coffee and a hardboiled egg each, served beneath a canopy along the stone-paved trail and tucked next to shrines. It was a fun experience made better by our knowledgeable and patient guide.

The bamboo grove was spectacular. Pictures were amazing but seeing it person is sooo much ch better. The mountain climb to the tea garden and beyond was an unexpected lovely surprise. The views are breathtaking. The temples and shrines are a thing of beauty as well. Monkey park was thoroughly enjoyable. From the beautiful hike to reaching the top and enjoying the monkeys. Marvelous!!

Warm, friendly, informative guide. Beautiful walk through woods, bamboo forest, and small shrines leading up to Fushimi Inari Shrine. Great way to see the area without entering with the masses of new year's visitors from the front entrance. Thank you.

The tour up the other side was great even after a rainy day. There was hardly any visitors to the shrine at the first part which was great. The whole experience was well informed and great hidden scenery for all selfie takers.

The experience was great and interesting, the tour guide was patient and answered all of our questions. Though the price wasn’t worth it. We had to pay our lunch and rides (buses and train) plus the fee we had already paid.
