Overview
Kyoto Bike Tour has you visit a whopping 5 top spot destinations of Kyoto all in one day on one epic adventure! Enjoy a stroll through the breathtaking Bamboo Forest, gaze at the glimmer of the gold as it reflects on the water at the Golden Pavilion, be inspired by one of the most iconic views of Kyoto from the mystical Kiyomizu Temple, weave through the traditional backstreets of one of Kyoto's geisha districts, take a spiritual walk through the magnificent red torii gates at the Fushimi Inari Shrine, and so much more! This is a full city tour of approximately 40km of riding and requires a moderate level of fitness. Basic bicycle riding skills and a sense of adventure is a requirement. On the same note, we will travel at a leisurely pace with enough time to take in the sites and for a relaxing lunch stop. *Please notify of any dietary restrictions or food allergies at time of booking. *Please be aware Kiyomizu Temple is not included in winter tours December 1st to March 1st.

The full day tour is worth every penny. What a day. My legs are like jelly, and I’m exhausted, but I had so much fun that I am staying up to write this review. Ray met us at the designated train stop, at 8am sharp and we ended exactly at 4:03pm. The bikes had 2 water bottle

It was all my pleasure showing you both the city! Thanks so much for the amazing review and the really perfect day out together! That day was unbelievable. I cannot believe we even got that rainbow in there at the end! Your praise humbles me and inspires me to keep on studying. I hope you both have enjoyed the rest of your travels. Be sure to send me an update and keep in touch! Cheers, Ray

Had a fun time on this bike tour and highly recommend! It really was a great way to see a lot of the city that we definitely wouldn't have otherwise. You hit the top tourist spots as well as the back roads and a few hidden gems. The paths were mostly very flat and easy so it

I am a Japanese but I enjoyed the tour a lot. Peter has a great knowledge of Japanese history. Wonderful to see the place that the history actually happened. I have seen them only in my school book.
