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

From there we made several stops at key sights before making a stop at the Nishiki Market prior to returning to the hotel.This was a great way... 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.

Cycling around Kyoto is a wonderful way to explore the backstreets, alleyways, parks and other sights of this fascinating city. Our guide, Yoko-San, was excellent. We did the Gion tour but if we had had more days there would definitely have done a few more with Kyoto Cycling Tour Project.

I had the honor of taking three 8 hour bike tours, The East Kyoto, The West Kyoto, and the Machiyo Tours. Moto-san is an expert of Kyoto city, history, with the added benefit of Japanese culture and history for understanding the culture of Kyoto and the why. In addition, Moto-san added great restaurants for completing the experience of Kyoto. In... More

Although the on line registration process was a bit cumbersome, we are very happy that we pressed on and were able to book a tour. Our guide, Moto, was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. The ride helped clear the jet lag cobwebs and made us feel instantly one with the bike-riding populace of Kyoto. The tour was well planned and executed:... More
