From upon entrance, the hosts were welcoming and very kind. Taught us about the Japanese culture of the tea ceremony and what each step meant. Loved how engaging they were and they also assist you dressing up in a kimono! For the millennials out there, they take many pictures for you during the ceremony and send them across before leaving! (: Adored the whole experience and would recommend it to all. I would like to personally thank the Hosts for such a splendid morning.
The experience was good. Mariko our guide was very kind. This trip was a good way to spend one day in Kyoto without having to worry about logistics. I wish though that some areas we would have more time but it's understandable given the time we've received as it's about 40-50 minutes between each site. Overall, I'm glad we did this tour. It made everything so much easier.
Beautiful and informative tour in the beautiful town of Uji with great and knowledgeable tour guides. We visited a shrine and temple learning the history and significance of the landmarks, ground tea leaves to make matcha and made our own. We ate tasty matcha soba nodules and delicious matcha ice cream. Highly recommended tour.
Mimi was amazing! She was punctual when she met us and so sweet. It was a small group of us (only four people, not including Mimi, our guide) so we were able to ask a ton of questions and take our time. She’s got some great suggestions for additional things to see and do while in Kyoto as well.
Worth every penny! We did the Kyoto: Casual Pontocho Evening Food Tour and our guide Yoshie was the best part. She was an instant friend taking us on a tour of her city. The out of the way places, the amazing food, and the wonderful ppl made for one of the best evenings of our trip
