Kyoto: Private Tour with Local Licensed Guide
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration options: 4 - 6 hours
Our guide Agustin was so helpful and friendly. He took us to a lovely temple that wasn't on the main tourist trail, which was a great opportunity to escape the crowds of Kyoto in the autumn colours season. Our walking tour included all the things that we'd expressed interest in when booking. After the tour, Agustin also kindly emailed me information that he had researched for us about a museum exhibition and antique shop because we'd explained that we were interested in Japanese netsuke. Thank you Agustin!
Good experience. Easy to use. Only suggestion is that the conductors know when certain facilities are closed. We hopped off to visit the Palace, it was closed. It would have been helpful if the conductor has told us that before we got off the bus. Also, it was a bit cold. It was not until later in the day where part of the roof was closed.
Takes you round lots of major sights, and there are buses every 30 minutes so it's easy enough to catch one. Staff were friendly and could give extra information about places we passed The only downside was that there was lots of traffic at the end of the loop, so there can be delays
There is no way you can see everything in one day if that's what you're thinking! Plan ahead what you want to see so you're not disappointed. Also dress appropriately as only open seats are available.
We had an absolutely wonderful experience! Our guide, Yuka, was incredibly knowledgeable, flexible to our interests, and a great photographer. would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Kyoto.
