Kyoto is such a beautiful city comprising both modern and traditional Japanese architectures and I felt that cycling was one of the best ways to experience that and understand the way the city works. You get to not only feel the roads you are cycling on but you get to see rare sights of quaint neighbourhoods and experience what it... More

Our 23 and 20 year old son and daughter travelled with us and we all enjoyed cycling through the back streets of Kyoto as we took in the kinkakuji temple, ryoanji zen garden and the Arashiyama bamboo forest. Our guide was the wonderful Keiko san who was fluent in English and knowledgeable about the local attractions. She was entertaining and... More

Hiroko Nakamura took us on a lovely tour through Kyoto - urban, rural, gardens, temples and lovely food. Her knowledge was excellent, her photography skills obliging, finding the unusual and funny sights and managing to avoid hill climbs. She even managed to miss a few showers of rain hovering around. Hiroko continued on well beyond the appointed finish time. The... More

My sons and I went to Kyoto in June 2014 and booked two bike tours - Back Street Tour (Afternoon part) & Kinkakuji Arashiyama Golden Tour(AM). We had an amazing time and our guide for both days was Yoko. She was excellent and the sights were outstanding! How many people get to say they rode a bike through a rice... More

We did the western route and it was amazing, not only do you see the various must see sights but the back alley-ways and various points of interest so you really get a 'feel' of Kyoto. Our guide Moto was excellent, went out of his way to show and tell us everything there is to know and gave us some... More

I had a great time on my Kyoto bike tour. I wanted to do the Kyoto East tour, but I saw some of the attractions that we would visit, so my tour guide, Moto-san, was so helpful in designing a unique route that went to all the places that I wanted to see. He was so knowledgable and very funny,... More

My wife and I were spending three days in Kyoto and wanted a way of seeing some sights, getting a little introductory history and context of the city, but also a little exercise as well.... this was the perfect way of achieving all of that. We were really thrilled with our guide, Hideki, who gave a great tour, kept us... More

We took the full day west tour and enjoyed ourselves very much, thanks to our lovely guide Yoko, and fine weather. Yes rather expensive but a much more interesting and engaging way to tour Kyoto! Highly recommend!

We hired bikes for 2 days to visit various districts of kyoto. It was a brilliant way to see the city. It meant we were able to see a number of different shrines and temples, more than we would have if walking or using public transport between different ones. As we cycled on our own without a guide, all we... More
