What to Expect

How about a tour off Kyoto? Ohara is wonderful place to visit. You'll be able to visit a beautiful garden covered with moss, see the statue of the Amida-sama (a Buddhist statue), and enjoy the so-called "garden in a frame". You won't be able to enjoy the delicious air if you take a bus tour, so I recommend walking around these sites with me..
These places are a little ways away from Kyoto. It's best if you have a guide to help you get there.

“ A Pleasant Guide who has a good sense of humour ”

Tomoko has a good command of the English Language and Japanese history.She was accomodating towards our request for the tour and choice of lunch. Due to the great distance between each tourist site in Kyoto, we found that we spent alot of time travelling on the bus/train. Although that is an experience in itself , it took up the bulk of the time. Tomoko took care to assist us at the ticket booths and made sure we were comfortable on the pubic transport. It was easy to talk to her. On hindsight, we should have requested for the tours to be much earlier so that we could hear her explanations without the noise of the crowd drowning her voice and also to take better photos. Thank you Tomoko.

Tomoko:

Ms Yook, Thank you for your message. I hope you enjoyed the tour. As for the time for moving one place to the other, Kyoto is not a small city and The famous places are dotted apart. So to cover all the places, we need some time. Or we need to concentrate on one part of the city to visit to cut such moving time. I should have explained about the time before the tour.

“ Professional and informative tour guides ”

The night Gion tour was the best and very interesting. details of history of temples and Garden areas interesting. Pleasant and very accomodating. Be aware the total cost of tour is higher if guide travels with you anywhere except a walking tour. Our evening tour was a fixed price however we used our JR passes for Nara and had been asked by guide to pay for her transportation. It was a little on the spot as I thought this was included in her tour price her own transportation. in our case it was close to 20.00 U.S. higher we paid her directly as we had to pay for all her transportation not just the local bus we all took while touring outside of our JR passes. She was very very helpful in helping us make reservations back on our bullit train not realizing it was a holiday. Very satisfied... read more

Tomoko:

Rosanne Thank you for your review of the tour. I hope you enjoyed the time with me. Unfortunately, I had to ask you to cover my transportation cost as stipulated in the tour information. As Japanese people can not have JR pass and I had to ask you whole transportation cost on the tour day. If we add mine to the tour cost, it becomes higher because the commissions will be added on the tour cost too. However, I should have made sure about the cost before the tour. I hope you still enjoyed the time in Nara
