I'm just back from my marvelous trip in Japan and I think got a great flavor of the Kyoto city thanks to the guide Ray who guided the tour in an excellent, fun and informative way. He recommended as well where to taste great Japanese food at the end of the trip. Had the best hot pot in the world!... More

I request a big bike since I am over 1.90m, and happens that are all the same, tailored to 1.70m person. Any biker would refuse it but I followed my family, and after 20km my body was in bad shape. They did not even allow me to pay extra for a bigger bike since all were the same. Check Kyoto... More

Biking in Kyoto is by far the best way to see the city. Our guide Tomo took us down the most beautiful streets in Kyoto. The shrines and temples we visited were fabulous. Tomo is so knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. I've been to Kyoto many times before but this was the best tour ever.

Kyoto walking tour was a pleasant experience. Our guide Ray was friendly, informative and overall fun. Ray made Fushimi Inari and Gion the most enjoyable tour I've ever taken. Highly recommended.

Tomo was our leader for the day and was very lovely and approachable. The bike ride wasn't hard at all so would be great for all ages. We rode along a river which was lovely and cool and saw some beautiful temples and the philosophers path which was nice to ride or walk along. I recommend this trip very highly... More
