It would have been better if we just rode taxis.First of all, the driver did not know any sightseeing spots in Kyoto!!! He wasted most of our time looking for the hotel of our companion. He had to phone for directions or look at the map, again, wasting time.In the end they wanted me to pay ¥6000more as the van came from Osaka, as they said.I refused to pay as I did not demand for a van from Osaka or anywhere else. When they cinfirmed my reservation, nothing was mentioned about the extra ¥6000 jst bec it had to come fr Osaka! Overall, it sucked.we ended up going to only 2 temples.such a waste of time and money! We pd ¥81,850 for a lousy service!!!i do not recommend TripleLights Service!
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we take criticism very seriously. We investigated the situation properly to get the full picture. It appears that our driver had to wait for 40 minutes at the first pickup because one of our customers was taking a shower. Then he had to wait for some time again at the second pickup because our customers were not ready to leave. There was also an additional request for a third pickup leaving everyone with a limited amount of time to tour. Usually our customers have time to visit 4 to 5 sightseeing spots within 8 hours if they leave the hotel on time. We are deeply sorry to hear that you had such a frustrating experience. We pride ourselves on our service we provide for our customers and we maintain a high standard. Apologies for the inconvenienc... read more
No problem communicating. Their driver was good and the car was good. High recommend
Thank you very much for your kind review and for recommending us! Hope you enjoyed your time in Japan and hope you will come and visit us again soon.
We had a great time with our Osaka-Kyoto Tour with Mr. Miyanishi. He is very familiar with the routes and places to go around Kyoto and Osaka. We were able to maximize our 8 hours and were able to go to all the places we want to visit. Even though he knows little English, he tried his best to communicate with us.
Thank you very much for your wonderful review and for giving us Five Stars, it means a lot to us. We were happy to hear that you were able to visit all the sightseeing spots you requested. Our driver Mr. Miyanishi is very familiar with the area and can work flexibly and efficiently depending on the situation. I will pass your kind message to Mr. Miyanishi. We wish you all the best and we hope to see you again soon.
Had a great time exploring Nara at our own pace. Our driver, Mr Kojima, made sure we arrived to those places safely. Comfortable bus, too!
Thank you very much for your kind review and for giving us Five Stars, it means a lot to us! We are glad to hear that we could help you make the most of your precious time in Nara. Mr. Kojima is very familiar with area and is very professional. I will pass your kind comments to Mr. Kojima. Thank you once again and please give our best to everyone in your group for us.
Our guide arranged for a location just outside Kyoto Station for us to meet our van and driver (Mr. Uno). He drove us to each of the different sites we visited. We were dropped off and picked up at each site very efficiently. The van comfortably sat all 17 of us. Just be aware that tolls and parking fees are extra. We knew that from the start so I expected it. It was roughly 10% of our daily rate.
Thank you for giving us Five Stars and for your kind review, it means a lot to us. We are very happy to hear that we were able to help you make the most of your precious time in Kyoto.
