What people are saying about Kyoto

We booked a full day tour with local guide Kaori and we loved the experience! She was very well prepared and had already discussed with us what we would like to visit before the tour started. She had made a good program so we could see a lot of Kyoto without having to rush from one site to another. We visited Kinkakuji temple (the Golden pavilion), Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, Fushimi Inari shrine !Thousands of Shinto gates) and Gion where Kaori gave us extra information on Japanese history and tradition. At noon we had lunch in a traditional Japanese restaurant, sitting on the floor. Very nice experience and very good choice of her! At the end of tour she gave us some tips on other things to do/visit in Kyoto and even arranged a taxi for us. We were very happy to have booked this tour and would like to thank Kaori again for the wonderfull experience!

Excellent private tour of Kyoto with Akiko

We had a really good tour with Akiko in Kyoto. Akiko had very good english and was very friendly. She took us to the main highlights of Kyoto and was very informative. The pace of the tour was also very good as we did not want to be rushed. We really liked the walk through Gion district and the visit to the Golden Palace. We would hghily recommend a private tour with Akiko to get a good sense of Kyoto at the beginning of your stay.

Kyoto: 8-Hour Private Guided Walking Tour Reviewed by Ciaran, 10/22/2018

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.

The distances between one’s hotel and sights can be long, so don’t try to pack too much into four hours. Also, Kyoto can be quite warm and humid in August, so bring plenty of water.
