Too rushed at each location to be able to explore. Guides were not great, food was awful. The only meal while in Japan I needed to supplement with snacks. Good tour to welcome traveler into Kyoto.
Our guide was wonderful for this trip - so full of knowledge of the sites and Japanese culture! Very clear English as well! Thanks for a great visit to Kyoto.

This was my first time to Kyoto, and the tour was an excellent way to see the historical sites. The guide was informative and gladly asked all our tourist questions.
I did the day tour to Mt Fuji and it was amazing so I was slightly disappointed with this one. Don't get me wrong, I am happy I did it and it definitely makes seeing sights, when you only have a day, easy. But I thought the schedule was odd with incorporating both the morning and afternoon tours. The lunch break for over 2 hours long- WAY too long. If I had truly realized that, I might have made a different plan with all of that time. The food was mediocre at best. And while both tour guides were lovely people, not great guides and hard to understand their English. This is critical likely b/c my Fuji experience was the complete opposite. Food, guide, sites and schedule were wonderful.

Horrible food. They park you for 2 hours at a 1 star buffet and souvenir complex. The temples and shrines you visit are lovely. However you experience can vary greatly depending on what tour guide you get. Maybe consider one of their half day tours and avoid to horrible lunch and mandatory shopping time.

We saw a lot in one day! Our guides were excellent. They spoke excellent English, were smart, and had a great sense of humor. The schedule was a bit fast but that's the only way to see so much in one day. The food was ok - not wonderful but certainly not bad. My only surprise was that we were "collected" for the afternoon tour earlier than we had been told and some people didn't join the same bus. I would have like to continue to travel with the people from the morning. And I would have liked the amount of time to shop that we were told we would have. My lodging was not connected to this tour.

A beautiful Tour that covers the busiest spots in Kyoto, The guides are careful in their work and give you information details of the sites covered by this tour, this is a tour you can not miss the opportunity to take if you are in Kyoto !!!!

The tour was well-spaced but all about temples/shrine. Sugggest to have variety. Also some places had a lot of stairs and climbing which was not ideal for elderly guest. Lunch was a let down for the price that we pay for the package. Could improve on that

Great locations. Knowledgable English speaking guides. Schedule was rushed but this was probably due to the holiday crowds. The best thing I can say about the lunch provided is that It didn't give me food poisoning.
