Customer Reviews for Kyoto Tours

    Joanne ( United States )

    I absolutely loved the cultural and musical experience learning two songs on the Koto with the most amazing teacher, Harumi Shimazaki. As a violinist and French hornist, I value the beautiful yet different sound of the koto—and the wonderful harmony created when Harumi plays along with you after you master the songs. Truly will be an experience I'll never forget and I'm motivated to continue learning. Later in my trip I met a family of five and I highly recommended they go take a lesson as well.... view more

    Jason ( Japan )

    Outstanding, she catered to our needs with two small girls. Thank you so much for showing us around the town, a must if you've never been to Kyoto before. We would have given up fighting the crowd if it were not for her. view more

    Gina ( Philippines )

    We had a wonderful tour in Kyoto and Kobe with Hideo. He brought us to the temples and historical places. My family learned so much from him. Hideo is very energetic and patient. I will definitely recommend Hideo to my friends. view more

    Robert ( Israel )

    Absolutely excellent guide. Many e-mail communications before our trip to hone and finalize our itinerary. Has a car which made it possible to get to several distant sites of interest. Brought his own camera to take our photos, and e-mailed them to us. He is very informative and knows the area well. Very accommodating. I recommend him highly without hesitation. You'll be fortunate if you are able to book him. view more

    Sarah ( United States )

    I ended up traveling solo so booked the evening Gion tour with Ryoji who was very knowledgeable and accommodating. It was especially nice to see the quieter areas away from all the crowds. The secret garden is just lovely. view more

    Christina ( Singapore )

    It was a pleasant and enjoyable experience travelling with Mitsu- san in his car. We were very appreciative of the transportation although it was a little difficult to get in and out for the shorter elderly or for an elderly with bad knees. Otherwise - good for family travel. He was knowledgable enough and shared what he knew of the various sites. Also helpful in assisting us with family photos. End of the day - great to be able to be dropped off at the hotel. All the best ! view more

    Shirley ( United States )

    We spent 8 hours with Mitsuyuki and had the most wonderful day in Kyoto. He picked us up in his van and drove us to all the places we wanted to visit. His English is very good and he provided us with information about every site that we visited. Mitsuyuki provided us with bottles of water to drink and also umbrellas in case of rain. I would definitely recommend Mitsuyuki as a personal tour guide. view more

    Bianca ( Philippines )

    Despite the fact that we had different age gaps in our group (from a 6yr old to 84yr old), Ryoji was very patient and extremely accommodating to all of us. He took us to the most amazing sites in Kyoto, all the while telling annecdotes and histories of each place and taught us some of the Japanese culture. He made sure each of us had an awesome experience to remember, took us to the best places to eat, helped us find all the little keepsakes we wanted and made sure we got on the right train back... view more
