Customer Reviews for Kyoto Tours

    Ileana ( United States )

    Kazuhico was a wonderful guide! He filled our day from early morning to dusk with monkey park, bamboo grove, the golden pavilion, temples, shopping and a great lunch. He is a kind gentleman with tremendous energy and a sincere desire to please. He was always looking for opportunities to take great pictures of us with our camera. He answered all out questions in excellent English and provided background information on the sights we visited. He also taught us how to use the bus, the train and... view more

    Our experience with Mitsuyuki’s full day Kyoto and Nara tour in a car was very rewarding. His tour price was so worth the money. We were able to visit all the places that we needed to see comfortably in his car which accommodated all 6 of us adults. We were given enough time to take pictures and appreciate the places we visited through the explanations he shared about each place. His calm demeanour and sincere attitude made us feel relaxed with him at the outset. view more

    We love Toshiyo. She is a natural with warm and caring personality. She made us feel at home and worked according to our schedule without rushing us while keeping us in check too. She knows Kyoto so well and shared a lot to us. I will gladly have her back when I return to Kyoto. There is still so much too see but we just had so little time. Thank you Toshiyo for giving us a great time seeing Kyoto in such a short time. You are the best! view more

    We took an afternoon tour with Katsuko for our first time in Kyoto (family with 3 teenage girls) Katsuko was very accommodating in providing us multiple itinerary for our consideration especially we only have 4 hours with her, with plenty of suggestions which sights we could easily see on your own. We decided on Arashiyama and Kinkakuji due to distance of these places. From the start it was very well organised. She gave websites links of places that proved to be useful for us. Met us as Kyot... view more

    We hired Hiroshi for our morning tour of Kyoto. He was very informative and funny during our tour of a couple temples and very helpful during our time in Nishiki Market. He even took photos of us with his camera and emailed the photos to us. This was great since we now have many photos of ourselves that aren’t just selfies. We will definitely hire Hiroshi again view more

    Mari is very pleasant, helpful and very patient with us as we had to stop a lot of times for picture taking. We were able to see a lot of places in a short period of time. We learned a lot from Mari as she explained to us the history of the places we visited. She answered all our questions well. She took us to the places that we wanted to visit. We had an excellent time with Mari. She made our visit to Kyoto memorable. We will definitely recommend Mari to our friends and relatives who will visit... view more

    Masaki, or “Makoon” as he goes by, was an exceptional tour guide. I can’t say enough good things about him! We booked a pricate custom one day tour of Kyoto. He was always quick and prompt with email correspondence prior to our trip. He took into consideration my ideas and places I wanted to see while coming up with a great itinerary and suggesting his own ideas. He is very knowledgeable; he knew so much about all of the different places he took us and his English was excellent. If you’re lookin... view more

    Mr Masaki, a.k.a Mr Makoon is the first guide i have encountered who brings a camera and becomes your personal photographer too. He is very informative, accomodating and knowledgable. He would even find shortcuts to let u have a better photo angle of the sites you go to. He wilk even make a personalized ITenerary brochure for you 😃. thumbs up view more

    We saw a week's worth of sights in one day touring with Yoshie! He prepared an incredible itinerary, and we really got to see all the highlights of Kyoto. He's a great communicator and incredibly knowledgeable about the sights and the surrounding areas. Highly recommended! view more

    We had a great time with Mitsu. He is such an organised guide and answers to inquiries very quick and is cognizant of our needs and he was supposed to have been on his holiday already last December 29 but when I explained to him that we were arriving only in Osaka December 28 late afternoon, he agreed to take us on even if he was supposed to be on holiday already. For this, I truly appreciate his gesture. He explains facts very well and we learned so much about Kyoto and Nara from him. He is... view more

    Mr Keiji organised a night walk around Kyoto specifically for us. He arrived on time and made sure that we were back at our hotel at the end of the tour. He took us around Gion including Pontoch alley. He also organised for us to eat in a really quaint restaurant. Mr Keiji has a lot of local knowledge both historical and current. He was a very interesting guide who made every effort to meet our needs. I would definitely recommend him as a guide. view more
