Reviews of 1-Day Kyoto & Nara Tour (Round Trip from Osaka, With National Government Licensed English Guide Interpreter)

Everything & everyone was nice & pleasant. Only beef was that our guides left the meeting spot at Nara back to our bus too soon & headcounted only at the parking bay. Wife & I got lost & almost didn't make it. Another couple got left behind but fortunately rejoined us at the next nearby stop. A solo member didn't make it...

A great trip, very well organised transfer from Osaka to Kyoto was smooth and our co-ordinaries ensure no one was lost, our guide Youme was fantastic, she explained the locations very well and had interesting stories to share her energy level was simply amazing she made the trip really enjoyable. Lunch was ok and could have been better but that’s just nitpicking overall a well worth tour for folks who just have a day and want to cover the essential sights around Koyoto and Nara. My six year old son was able to keep up with the pace of the tour and it was not too demanding

Tour was relaxed even with a full bus. Made transfers easy especially traveling with small children and older people. The buffet was just ok. Yoshi is a very good guide - funny and shared a lot of interesting trivia.

The lunch was à big scandal we had to queue 20 minutes to get food on a 50 minutes lunch break and then after we had got the food impossible to seat not enough seats for all the clients we had to eat standing up no place to seat not enough tables for all the people the food was disgusting considering the price of this excursion it is a pity and we were not satisfied

Knowledgeable guide and worthwhile spots to visit. Buffet lunch was good. Overall, it was an enjoyable trip. We will recommend this tour to others.

Tour guide in the morning very ok. Tour guide in the afternoon not so ok. She did not gave us time to take pictures especially on the last site.
Schedule is a bit tight . Should allow more time to roam around the chosen sites and do picture taking. Guides are competent and very helpful too. Grouo size should be smaller in order to allow more interactive communication with the guide.

The tour left the sightseeing chartered bus station late (scheduled is 0800H but left around 0830H) so we are hurrying on all the destinations on Kyoto.

This tour was very nice. Our schedule was quite packed, but each tour guide knew so many interesting and unexpected facts. The two tour guides for each sight had different styles, but were equally entertaining. It would have been nicer to have more time, because I barely had time to buy any souvenirs!
