To closely feel the local atmosphere of Kyoto, this 7-hour tour will use public transportation so that you can experience the everyday life of Kyoto locals.
What to Expect
During the 7-hour tour, your private guide will show you around the city covering four major must-see locations. There are two different courses: one northwest-bound and the other southeast-bound. If you participate in both tours, you can efficiently cover eight locations at a relaxing pace.
