What people are saying about Kyoto

We had a wonderful day traveling through some of the most beautiful temples and shrines in Kyoto. Andrew arranged the route based on our interest and by location, so that we could use the time efficiently sightseeing and not in transit. He had many interesting insights to share at each sight: on its history, references to mythology, art, and the philosophy and practicality of gardening and landscape architecture. Overall a wonderful trip and great value for money. We can absolutely recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience the beauty of Kyoto outside of tourist masses and the few top seen sights!

Mardi was a well informed and enthusiastic American who speaks and reads Japanese. She showed us some interesting sites but best of all she took us to some cool places to eat and drink thst we would have had no chance of finding on our own. Pleasant polite intelligent would recommend Mardi if you have a few hours in Kyoto

Gion is really pretty at night and our guide Ko was great, taking us on a good route and giving extra detail about the sights. We had good food at an okonomiyaki restaurant which we went back to again during our stay in Kyoto. Ko had a good sense of humour and it was a fun evening.

Wonderful tour where you can learn about the history of Kyoto and eat your way through it in local spots!! The guide, Mardi, was fantastic, and I really enjoyed trying new food that I wouldn't have known to order. I would 100% recommend this tour!

Zen was our guide and he did an incredibly insightful tour. Really enjoyed the evening, it was an absolute highlight and the Japanese pancake was so yummy too. Would recommend this tour anytime! Zen was great. Thank you.
