We booked a tour from osaka: day trip by bus to kyoto and Nara, unfortunately our tour was cancelled and it is our last day in osaka. The only available tour is the kyoto day tour. So, we took the kyoto day tour instead. All i can say is that all the places that we went is so worthy of our time. It is not that crowded. And our tour guide ikki showed us the proper way of praying. It was an unforgettable experience for us. I forgot the name of the restaurant, but the view there is breathtaking. The tour is very convenient for us because we do not have to worry how to get from one temple to another.

Good organized trip. All places were very beautiful. Lunch was delicious and various. Guide Li was very nice and supportive. One minus - there are not enough time in Nara. Park is too big and beautiful, so 50 minutes is not enough.

I was reluctant to book as travelling with others in a group can be hard. But we were able to break from the group and meet up so that was great as well as having the opportunity to stay with the guide.

Excellent day. Very nice and caring Guide Jewell. Only thing is it’s incredibly rushed and a lot of the time is used for other passengers swapping buses at the terminus.

Taki (the guide) was very nice, the excursions are very nice but a bit fast (around 30-40 on each site) nevertheless I recommend
