    The tour itself was great, it was mostly visiting shrines or temples which were all unique in their own way like the thousand gate shrine or the golden temple.
    The included lunch was amazing, it offered so many different options and had information about all the allergens it contained.

    Harry was an excellent tour guide he was very helpful during the tour especially when taking pictures. He offered advice about activies to do outside of the tour for any free days and suggested resturants to visit. He had wonderful historical facts about the places we visited and was even kind enough to provide everyone with a information leaflet about himself which really helped make him feel like an acquanitace more than a strange. He was very friendly and talkative so it didnt feel awkward at all

    This tour was amazing! Super informative with so many beautiful landmarks and scenery. Kaori, my tour guide, was wonderful! She was incredibly kind and knew so much about Kyoto, Japanese tradition, and the various beautiful locations we visited. She had so much insights into what we were looking at and made my brief experience in Kyoto so worth it! She also took great pictures and went above and beyond to teach me about Japanese history and culture.

    If you can take this tour, I 100% recommend it, and do whatever you can to take it with Kaori, she was amazing!!

    Mex was great, he was fluent in English and flexible in adding to itinerary. He took us to JR station to buy bullet train tickets. Excellent guide and driver!

    Cycled the back streets of north Kyoto. Shaun(Shawn?) as our guide was very informative about the places we visited but also could answer many other questions about Kyoto and Japan in general. We loved cycling through an area we would not have found otherwise.
    Also stopped for delicious Aburi-Mochi sweet treat with green tea which we weren’t expecting.

    We have just come back from a morning tour with Haruka an english speaking guide. Haruka showed us all of the sites efficiently using the maze that is the Japan public transport system I’m so glad we didn’t attempt it ourselves. Haruka was friendly and informative and we had a great time meeting other travellers and sharing stories and laughs along the way. I am travelling with three kids 14, 11 and 9 and they also had a great time! Thank you for a fabulous day!

    Reo is friendly and very knowledgeable about Kyoto, its history, the shrines and cultural sites he took us to. He is multilingual and navigated the city easily. We would book a tour with him again if we are lucky enough to return soon!

    Aron was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and informative, good sense of humor. He paced the walk well. The walk included some great stops - the monkeys were worth the climb! He knew many of the local vendors. He also was very helpful with logistics in terms of getting to the meeting point and after the tour to make sure everyone got to where they wanted to go. I would highly recommend this tour!

    Excellent mixture of top quality ramen (two bowls!); insight into the world of ramen; and entertaining and engaging guide.
    The restaurants gave us the full ramen experince. The first was high end decor, open minimalist space combined with thick ramen soup (and my personal favourite, seasoned with Yuzu) then on more traditional soya-suce based ramen in a more traditional ramen restaurant that the locals would use.
    This was all wrapped up with the entertainment of a fun "ramen quiz" to start with and "ask any questions" approach to the trip!. Highly recommended

    Excellent knowledge of the city culture ans history. Very good English which can often be a barrier with guides in Japan.

    Our guide was Joshua and he was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun! We went to two restaurants and there was more food than we could possibly eat! I would recommend this tour and guide.

    What a great evening stroll through Gion with our guide Alex! Alex was an absolute pleasure, sharing his extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for the area. He took us through the heart of Gion and some beautiful less traveled areas. We had a nice sit down break with a drink and snack along the way. Alex not only answered our questions, but got to know everyone in our small group as well. And he even offered to take photos for everyone. This was one of the highlights of my time in Kyoto! I highly recommend this tour, just be prepared for lots of walking.
