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!
The tour was very well planned and we had plenty of time to enjoy each activity that we set out to do. The locations that the bus took us to were convenient and easy to return to after each outing had finished, a very good way to experience some of the culture of Kyoto and Nara in a short amount of time
THE TOUR WAS GREAT. 4 DESTINATIONS WERE IDEAL WITH LOTS OF TIME TO SEE THINGS. THE TOUR GUY, ADRIAN WAS EXCELLENT. HIS COMMENTS AND WITTY, FUNNY AT TIMES, INFORMATIVE AND HE REALLY TOOK CARE OF US. TOLD US OF WHAT TO EXPECT AND WHAT TO DO IF WE HAD FREE TIME. ADRIAN IS AN EXCELLENT TOUR GUIDE.
I booked this tour because it starts from Namba near our hotel. The bus parking areas in Arashimaya and Nara were quite far. It was a long walk and the weather was so hot. I would have wanted to see the Japanese gardens in some of the places we visited, but we seem to have bypassed them.
It was very easy pleasant tour. Much accomplished in one day. With ample rest in the coach during the whole journey has made the day less tiring. Our fluent English speaker tour guide, Adrian was very knowledgeable and provided very useful tips. Highly recommended.
