Full description
Kyoto is a city that is best explored by bicycle. Your guides have carefully curated a selection of tours that focus on showing you the beautiful contours of this ancient capital. More than just visiting the busy tourist sites, these journeys are crafted on leisure, scenery, and culture, while uncovering some of the best-kept secrets in Kyoto. You begin with stops at World Heritage temples and shrines, and gradually make your way along cozy backstreets to quieter, more intimate Zen garden settings. You will be taken to places rarely seen by the average Kyoto dweller, tranquil environments carefully hidden from the hustle and bustle of the urban landscape.

Great Tour. Informative.

Loved using these bikes, felt very calming cycling around the streets of Japan, tour guide was friendly, positive, informative - really good energy and up for a laugh! Saw some cool things I wouldn't have known to go see, in a short amount of time, and without any hassle of trying to find them. Learnt a lot of cool things about Japanese culture!

You get to see some temples and enjoy a little bit of downtown Kyoto

Maybe expectations were overly high for the price charged, you get to see some temples, enjoy a tea break, and ride around the streets of Kyoto. If your time is limited then this might be a good way to spend it, but it would be nice to hear a little more of the history —for that price I would cheerfully have swapped one temple for Nijo Castle (I went later on my own, squeezing out time). So maybe modify the tour so you get to see a little religion/culture and a little history?

A great way to experience Kyoto, on electric bikes.

Sean, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and took us to neighborhoods, shrines, temples and gardens we wouldn't have experienced otherwise.
