12-hour Bustrip between Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Kobe

The only way that this tour can be promoted, is if it is described as a means of transport between the cities. No information, no added value. A total disappointment.

The tour at Kioto must include more highligths of the city, it only includes Arashimaya for 3.5 hours and this is so much time for this place.

It was a good way to see a bit of everything. We just didn't know that we had the option to not go to the last stop. It would've been good if that option was made clear to us as we would've opted for it.

This tour is a little rushed. Kobe portion was just a trip to the mall and dinner, perhaps a walk along the boardwalkif you have the time. Not sure it was worth that portion. Also - advice to the organizers to ensure that the group mix makes sense, as there were multiple itineraries in a bus, which made it a little confusing at times. Also, due to some late guests on the different legs, each of the areas were delayed. Didn't get to go into Todaiji templearrived too late.

Nice tour but not enough time to see the sights in Kyoto. Arashiyama is lovely but there’s a lot more to see in Kyoto. Time in Nara was adequate. Didn’t really see much of Kobe-just enough time to go for dinner and spend a bit of time at the port. The tour guides were informative.
