Your visit to Kyoto is not complete without doing this fantastic cycling tour. This is fun, informative, and refreshing. The bikes are very easy to ride and comfortable, and cycling in Kyoto is very safe. The tour guide (Naoko) was outstanding, organized, knowledgeable, and very helpful. We snapped our best photos during this tour and had the opportunity to visit... More

I used the location just off the Kyoto train station, which was not more than a 5 minute walk to get there, especially with the map they provide on their website, made it easy to be found. The staff spoke proper English and was very helpful. I rented the Mountainbike which was perfect. Clear instructions were given a free map... More

Under the guidance of the wonderful Keiko, and despite the rain, we thoroughly enjoyed our cycling tour that took in the Golden Temple through to the bamboo forest. We were offered to take the tour by public transport and were provided with rain ponchos when we said we were still happy to ride. The pace of the cycling was fine.... More

If you're not a confident biker used to cycling in the city, this tour might be a challenge for you. As an inexperienced biker from a bike-unfriendly city (Manila), it was for me. My husband and I took the Kinkaku Arashiyama Golden Cycling tour, which stops at the Temple of the Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji), the famous rock garden at Ryoan-ji,... More

We just completed a great bicycle tour of Kyoto with our terrific guide Hideki. He was fun and knowledgeable and the sights were amazing. His background tied into our limited knowledge of the Art of War and the Last Shogun. We especially enjoyed riding through the countryside where we saw lovely bamboo forests and rice fields. We even got to... More

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
