I highly recommend the Gion District Tour with Andreas! Andreas has a great sense of humor and possesses a deep knowledge of the Gion District, Kyoto and and of Japan in general. He took us to non-touristy restaurants, helped us in ordering authentic Japanese dishes, and really made us feel like locals. It was a really memorable experience, arigato!

Deep knowledge, humor, and authentic Japanese foods - sounds like a great night out to us! :) Here at Pinpoint Traveler, we keep evening tour group sizes to 6 or less for maximum interaction with our guides, and to allow us to slip into local restaurants and envrionments. Glad this approach was a winner for you! Check us out in Tokyo and Osaka too. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and we hope your future travels are also bright!

Andres was fantastic! The experience was intimate which was what I wanted! Got to have traditional foods while learning more about Kyoto! Honestly, the food and drinks were a bonus to my experience because strolling the streets and being exposed to some local traditions was something I really wanted. Really glad I booked this!!

Andreas is a great tour guide who brought us to the local areas of Gion and introduced the side that we cannot see form our own. Also by knowing what we want to eat, he helped me order foods with Japanese. It was an unforgettable and enjoyable night by having our tour guide.

We had a fantastic day exploring Osaka! Our guide Levy was lovely, knowledgeable and fun. We were driven around to various sites and at each our guide gave us a bit of history/background. We all said that while we could have in theory visited these places on our own we wouldn’t have gotten nearly as much out of it without the commentary. Mix of historical sites, shopping/food areas etc.
even though it’s a tour with a driver these still a bit of walking which we enjoyed, allowed us to explore a bit.
Levy our guide really was excellent, a genuinely nice guy. He helped us sort out our Shinkansen tickets and gave us some recommendations on other things to do while in Osaka which was really appreciated
Both adults and kids (11 and 13 year olds) thought it was fantastic. Even the 13 yr old said it was great and we don’t normally get praise out of him lol.
If you’re in Osaka and want to tick off a few of the main sites easily and have fun doing it I’d highly recommend

Thrilled that you enjoyed your day with Levy. We pride ourselves on providing a good mix of information and fun, and it always makes us to happy to hear our guests compliment that mix :) Levy is a great guide, and is always trying to make our guests' trips even brighter. He loves kids too, so family tours are as welcome with us as those without. Thank you for writing this very kind review. We hope to see you again in Osaka, or in Kyoto or Tokyo, where we also operate with (if we do say so ourselves) fantastic guides.

From the moment we met our guide Andres we knew we had made a great choice in tours.
My Son, his girlfriend and myself had a wonderful evening walking food/historical tour of the Gion area of Kyoto.
We hit several historical sites and small restaurants we would not founds on our own. Our group had many food preferences and dislikes and Andres went out of his way to accommodate all of them while gently pushing us a bit out of comfort zone. We even ran into a small group of Geishas!
He was engaging, funny and very knowledgable about it all things Japanese. I would highly recommend him
And this tour for anyone looking for a fun night out in Kyoto. Thanks!!

Thank you for writing this super complimentary and detailed review! We're thrilled to hear all the ways you enjoyed the evening. By keeping our groups to 6 or less, we are able to really tailor to our guests needs and interests. And then of course, Andres and our other guides always put their all into the evening. Thank you again for choosing Pinpoint Traveler, and we hope to see you again someday in Kyoto or elsewhere in Japan.

We had such an amazing experience with Andreas. He is an amazing tour guide and had lots of knowledge to share. He was super funny as well and we had the best food. Even thought it was raining, but we still had lots of fun. Honestly the best tour we had since we arrived in Japan. Highly recommend.

The best tour you had since arriving in Japan? Now that's some praise we can really dig our chopsticks into! By keeping our groups to six or less, we aim to provide the kind of personal attention visitors to Kyoto deserve. After all, it's no fun if you're part of a big group and can't make a connection with your guide! Thanks for the review, and if you're looking for something as fun but different, check out our Osaka night tour next time :)

What is there to say? Andres is an awesome guide and I highly recommend this tour. There's a bit of a history lesson and a brief stroll to some lovely spots before the first restaurant. Our first restaurant was traditional food from the Kyoto region and included items I would not have ordered on my own, so I got to try something new. Our second restaurant was a standing bar with some new twists on traditional pub fare. Andres was kind enough to walk us (and our new friends) to a great local bar after the tour was over, at our request. Andres, if you read this, thanks for giving us a great night! Highly recommend this tour.
