Well worth the 110 Can! The 8 hour ride and tour requires some fitness but not difficult. Amazing countryside riding, temples, a personal guide (Hideki was very good and shared tons of historical info). All tickets included, even subway back and a wonderful lunch and teabreak. Loved it!

I'd highly recommend this bike tour to enjoy the pace of Kyoto. The tour guide was professional and passionate, he was very knowledgeable to share the background and history of each spot. The scenery was awesome.

Our family of four did the "backstreets" tour on bikes. As a novice bike rider from the suburbs, one should know ahead of time that there are some busy city streets you will have to cross and ride along to get to the next destination. Overall, the tour was informative. After spending several days touring temples on our own, we... More

My husband and I went to Kyoto for our honeymoon and took the cycling tour. We had an amazing time. It is truly the perfect way to see Kyoto. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, very friendly, and you could see that she truly enjoyed her job. She took us everywhere, answered all our questions, gave us suggestions for our... More

My husband and I booked the full day Kyoto West Tour last week. I booked via email and all of my questions were answered promptly and a tour was organised at pretty short notice which we were grateful for. We were concerned about the price at first but after completing the tour we were completely satisfied and actually think the... More

We did the all-day West tour with Keiko and had a fabulous time. Keiko was full of fun facts and did an excellent time guiding us around the sites and making sure that we felt safe and comfortable on our bikes. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather and really enjoyed the whole day, from visits to the shrines... More

I wanted to book a half day bicycle trip for our third day in Kyoto, but it was fully booked so I had to wait three days. If you're in Kyoto for more than 6-7 days, make sure to book well in advance so that you can do this tour early. Because it's a useful trip. You get far on... More

We had such a magical day. It was our first day in Kyoto. Our guide was Yoko and she was a total sweetheart. Very knowledgeable about the city sites. I would recommend this bike tour to everyone. It was not a difficult ride and you cover half the city. We did the West tour and we talked about going back... More

We are not bicyclists, but this was a great way to see and experience Kyoto. Did the 8 hour East tour with guide Yoko and it exceeded our expectations! Wonderful way to see lots of beautiful sites in a day. And it was fun!
