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

Rocky start: they had forgotten about our reservation. Quickly solved with AWESOME customer service skills... they did not even try to explain how did the error took place but instead invested the time explaining the solution and its convenient timing. The quality of the bicycles is very good. We have rented bicycles in other cities through Asia and these are... More

Amazing tour with my wife and I. Guide was super informative and the best way to see many of the sights in Kyoto. I would highly suggest this tour. Some fitness needed. Really get to see, hear and smell the city and the attractions. Want to go back and do it again.
