Lonely Planet Experiences: Kyoto Evening Tour with a Local
- Duration: 3.5 hours
Enjoyed seeing the night view of the Gion District, the Yasaka Pagoda and seeing the night life area of Kiyamachi. Julian gave us a good insight into various aspects of the Geisha Lifestyle and also about the surrounding areas including some nice snacks and Dinner. It was a pretty good experience .
Michael had excellent English (has connections with the United States) and amazing knowledge and background to Kyoto. With him being a native Kyotoan, it really helped us to understand the history and culture of the city and he gave us lovely little secrets of the ancient Capital City!
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.
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.
Very pleasant tour guide that is warm and informative. Unfortunately it was raining heavily but we still managed the tour and enjoyed it it very much. The food was wonderful.
