Customer Reviews for Kyoto Tours

    Karen ( United States )

    Mitsuyuki was very amenable to making last minute changes to the pick up location and the sites we would see in Kyoto with him after our small group tour guide made some last minute changes to the itinerary. Mitsuyuki having a car made it a lot easier to visit three places in an afternoon of touring. view more

    Mitsuyuki was such an accommodating tour guide, he arranged a very thorough Kyoto day-tour where he picked us up in his comfortable van. We're a family of 4, with two kids and the kids were very happy with the tour. Mitsuuki has a very pleasing personality and we had a fun travel with his fun facts and conversations. The weather on the day we went wasn't so great but he had umbrellas ready for each of us as well as water for everyone which still made the tour fun. We highly recommend him! :) view more

    We had a wonderful day with Kazuhiko in Kyoto. We managed to visit quite few places in a half day and Kazuhiko's excellent navigation skills to use local transportation system was extremely useful. He never rushed us around and during the tour provided a lot of interesting information about sights we visited. I would definitely recommend Kazuhiko San if someone is looking for a guide who is friendly, has a good knowledge of Kyoto and values the time, since Kazuhiko can easily combine all three. ... view more

    The tour was well planned and tailored for me and my mom. Makoon was very clear and effective with his communication skills, knowlegeable about Japan's history (I like that the tour was interactive) he's fun, personable , sensitive to your needs and made suggestions to help us maximize time to cover the highlights of our tour. I like the fact that he made sure we avoided the massive crowds as it is now the peak of travel here in Japan. Lastly, he made sure we got back to our hotel safely after t... view more

    Hideo met us at the lobby of our hotel and from there we hit the day exploring really cool sites in Kyoto. He explained all the places we visited and even had photos to show us before and after pictures of how the areas looked during different times of the year! Very friendly guide and I would recommend that you hire Hideo if your looking for a good adventure! view more

    Deepak ( United States )

    He contratado a varios guias en diferentes países pero sin duda Tatsuya ha sido el mejor guía turístico que he conocido. Aparte de conocer la historia de los mejores lugares en Kyoto y Nara, tiene un conocimiento amplio de la cultura latina y todo los aspectos del viaje fue muy cómodo y divertido a la vez. Lo recomiendo ampliamente. view more

    Angela ( United States )

    I have travelled to many places but never had a guide impress me more. First of all, I appreciate his communications prior to my travel providing me insight on the weather conditions, cash requirements needed to enter the sites, and his flexibility in planning an itinerary of my favorite sites to visit. On the day of our tour, he provided excellent directions of where we would meet at Kyoto Station and upon meeting him his friendly demeanor let me know I was going to have a great tour. He creat... view more
