From Kyoto: Full-Day UNESCO and Historical Sites Tour
- Duration: 9 hours
- Optional audio guide
Lanny did a fantastic job with us in Kyoto! She gave us each some time 10-30 mins after to have a quick break for us to go and see/snack on other places we saw around the main sites which was very nice & gave us more time to enjoy. I highly recommend this tour! We miss you Lanny, this is Lynna (the girl with the purple hair & glasses) :) You helped us enjoy parts of Kyoto & explained more to us than if we tried to travel on our own. We really appreciated the air conditioned/heated coach bus also, thank you!
My secretary mistakenly booked my tour on the day of my arrival hence I was unaware that I actually missed it. I went to the Villa Namba thinking that it was this morning. When they were looking for my name, they couldn’t find it. I was trying to ask the staff there if I could rebook, unfortunately none of them could speak English. Fortunately they were still able to accommodate me, thanks to our English speaking guide, Adrian who was great!
My partner and I really enjoyed this experience, the guide was personal and provided an experience we were interested in. If he didn't know the answer to a question he would research it and get back to us. Overall we found it lovely to learn about Kyoto and have someone take control for 8 hours (no more maps or wondering where to go next). For these reasons I would recommend the tour even if you've been to Kyoto before.
The tour met my expectations. Our tour guide Jung did an excellent job giving us the history of each sites. He personally approached us and accommodated request for picture taking. I’m glad we did the package with the lunch included, that was an experience as well. Overall it was an excellent experience and touched most of the Kyoto’s highlights.
We were given a background of all the places we went to while we were still at the bus. Then when we reached the sites, we had enough time to explore the places on our own. Our tour guide, Hiromi, was very knowledgeable and sweet. She spoke English well. In addition, the bus ride was very smooth and we were able to rest while we were in the bus.
