Traveler Tips


  • "Make sure you bring enough water and go to toilets at attractions - there’s no stopping for anyone." See review
  • "If you have limited time this is a great tour to see a glimpse of these important places, but if you want to explore further like the 1000 Torii gates and Bamboo forest, this tour is not suited for that." See review
  • "A lot of walking to get to the individual sites, but so worth it." See review

Yoko was our guide and provided us ample time to explore the areas we visited. I like the Torii gates and the Sagano bamboo forest areas, amazing stories how all of these started and now are tourists’ places to see.

Our tour guide in the person of Ms. Lanny is very entertaining. She is very informative despite the fact that she came from Indonesia. She speaks eloquently.

In one day, visited all the Temples and Shrines. Highly recommended. Best use of your time. Lanny San was excellent, explaining all the quirky things about the places which we visited, Japanesse and Kyoto’s culture and customaries, another places and attractions in Kyoto. We are glad to take this tour as our first day in Kyoto so we have few tips to follow through for today.

Took way to much time in and out of the bus at every stop resulting in very short time at each spot. Choose a private tour if you can.

Delightful overview of temples of shrines of Kyoto

The shrines and temples of Kyoto are some of the most beautiful I've seen. The tour bus was comfortable and filled with many like minded travelers. The drawback was that the tour guide did not give the rich history of the sites we were visiting.
