Based on previous reviews we set up a private guided trip day specifically asking for Javier.
He was the best! We’d been to Kyoto before and also because of the autumn leaf season wanted to avoid the crowds and the tourist bus destinations.
My girlfriend and I traveled to Kyoto for the first time and had an amazing time with Javier's tour. He was very informative and professional, and we learned a lot in a short period of time. Our expectations were exceeded by the attention to detail...More

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Hello, these are all great destinations to see in Kyoto! I am not sure exactly what you are asking. If you plan on seeing 5 sites in Kyoto in one day, then I suggest you meet the guide (preferably Hiro) as early as possible. 4 sites are more reasonable in one day time-wise vs. 5 sites, but ask Hiro when you get there, or talk to the tour company by phone. They are very accommodating! I hope that helps you. Have a great time, and mention my name Scott, to Hiro.
