Overview

This tour takes you to the two areas, Fushimi and Arashiyama. Both areas are a little away from central Kyoto and have the serene atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable. Please enjoy another Kyoto with classical boat riding, playing with monkeys, etc.

What to Expect

In the past, Fushimi area was a port facing to a large lake. Now you can enjoy riding the classical boat through the river and also enjoy visiting classical Sake brewery where you can feel the old days and even try tasting various Sake.
Arashiyama is the area where still keeps atmosphere of ancient Kyoto. In addition to the Bamboo groove walk, you can enjoy the garden of Tenryuuji temple or playing with monkeys in the monkey park.
I am sure this tour makes a memorable day in your stay in Kyoto.

“ Rick was very organized and planned a great day ”

When we visited Kyoto it was my husband's birthday. I wanted to do something special and Rick pre-arranged to have a very delicious beautiful birthday cake made and delivered to the restaurant where we were going for lunch. My husband was quite surprised! He also suggested we take a boat ride on the canal and booked the tickets for us in advance. My understanding is these boat trips sell out very quickly. It was a lovely ride amidst the cherry blossoms. Rick was very flexible and worked with me as I changed my mind several times as to our itinerary and the day of the tour we ended up changing things again based on how we felt that day. In all, it was a lovely day in Kyoto.

“ Well planned tour, very kind and helpful tour guide ”

I would definitely endorse Rick to make your tour an enjoyable and well planned tour. Even before our tour began, I know my family will enjoy the 3 hr kyoto tour. Rick was fast in responding to all my queries and was most helpful in suggesting to store our luggage in coin lockers in train station. We went to Fushimi Inari shrine, Nijo Castle and Nishiki market. We went beyond the 3 hr time,and he did not charge us extra. In the train station, he made sure we used the escalator because he saw we were tired of walking. I would definitely contact Rick again when I go back to Kyoto.

“ BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER ”

Rick is beyond excellent! My friend and I both agreed - he is the best tour guide we have ever had! He went above and beyond for us!! We loved having him as our guide and appreciated the insight he offered at each site along the way. He helped us tremendously with navigating around Kyoto. He is beyond kind and such a gentleman - carrying my suitcase throughout the station for me - and that's just a small fragment of the kindness he showed!! Rick's English was very good and he understood everything we said which can't be said of the other tour guides we worked with. Rick was truly the best in every way!!! If you need a tour guide definitely book Rick!!
