Customer Reviews for Kyoto Tours

    Toshiyo was wonderful. Her English and communication were excellent and she had a lot of patience with our group of 7 which included both children and an older family member with walking difficulties. Highly recommend! view more

    We spent eight hours touring with Yoshie and it was the best day we spent in Kyoto. He speaks English very well and was extremely knowledgeable about all of the places we visited. It was a real pleasure spending the day with him. view more

    Our tour with Mitsuyuki was everything that we hoped it would be. He arrived promptly and had remembered what we hadn't seen yet. He was an excellent driver and we found that he easily understood us, even our jokes! In a short period of time we were able to see many spots of interest without having to find them, find parking, and he had a very relaxed personable "lecturing" style. We had a very interesting day and we would highly recommend his tour, especially if you want to see Nara and don'... view more

    We had the good fortune of meeting Seiko during our recent trip to Kyoto. There are 3 of us and we wanted to visit various sights we didn't get to see the day prior from a bike tour. Despite the distant location of each sight and the limited time, Seiko was very helpful and accommodating when putting together our itinerary for us. She even made some terrific suggestions (Sake tasting) and we had a blast spending the day with her. Her English was excellent and she was by far the best tour guide d... view more

    Hideo is very well educated about Kyoto and very efficient in his travels around the city. I would not hesitate to have him custom tailor an itinerary and have him help with navigation and information. He is super friendly and professional! He arranged a private driver for us as well. Thank you, Hideo! view more

    Ephraim ( Philippines )

    From the very start, Toshiyo was very flexible with the meeting time due to certain circumstances we had with the shinkansen. From the get go, she made adjustments to our itinerary for the day, due to the massive volume of other tourists at Kyoto at the time. This goes to show that she really did put a lot of thought into the tour that she gave us. We managed to visit all of the places I really wanted to go to even though our tour was adjusted in some way. At every place we visited she gave inte... view more

    Kirsten ( Germany )

    chisato organised an excellent tea experience for us. She has customised the tour precisely to our wishes. We visited a tea farmer family. We got the opportunity to pick tea flowers on their farm. Afterwards the tea farmer served various dishes containing tea leaves. We did taste different kinds of tea. At last we visited local tea traders. We owe her an unforgettable day and this unique tea experience in Wazuka. view more

    Irine ( Philippines )

    We had a wonderful time in Kyoto thanks to Hiro-san. We were able to see all the highlights and more in 2 days. He made the tour very entertaining with his stories, my 2 daughters were delighted. He also took extra effort to take a lot of pictures for us. It was a little bit rush but very understandable since we want to cover a lot of sights. He also did some Q&A wherein we get chocolates at the end of the day for getting the right answers, it was a very seet gesture. Would highly recommend him... view more

    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

    Kaila ( Philippines )

    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
