We had an absolutely fantastic tour of Kyoto with Javier! He is very personable, knowledgeable, and excited to show us his city! This was our first time to Kyoto, and we were able to visit several highlights of the city in one day, including the Thousand Torii gates (Fushimi-inari shrine), the Silver Pavillion, and the Gion District. A walking tour with Javier is 100% the best way to see Kyoto. The trip is so much more personal, he shows you little secrets you'd never know were there, and he makes the tours feel like its being led by a friend. Cannot recommend enough!

Unfortunately due to the awful pandemic our trip to Japan was cancelled. Although we weren’t able to take the tour I have nothing but positive comments to make about this company.
There many responses to our questions were fast and so very helpful. I was able to talk with the specific guide who helped realistic organize what we could cover in the day.
When our cruise was cancelled and notified them they acknowledged within 12 hours(time difference). Within in 2 days we had our refund.
We will definitely rebook our tour with Kyoto daily tours as soon as we are able to safely go to Japan. Stay safe

Javier was a wonderful guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the city and all the sites. He took us to several prominent places, but also to lesser known and often missed sites. The tours are still going on even with Covid 19 and are done in a very safe way.

This tour allowed us to see old Kyoto in a way that would be missed if you were just driving around or trying to see the sights on your own. Without Javier's knowledge of both Japanese and the culture, so much would be missed.

I would use his services again any time I'm in Kyoto.

We had never been to Japan and had two days in Kobe which required a lot of help, questions answered, etc. Michael at Kyoto Daily Tours was absolutely wonderful.

I had done a bit of research and had a good idea but I certainly needed his help. I was arranging tours for a group of us and he must have answered 20 emails. Not only was he helpful, he was very prompt in his replied which is refreshing especially having dealt with other companies in Japan.

Sadly, due to the covid 19 outbreak, we have had to cancel with them. Not only did they understand but returned my deposit as quickly as they had answered my emails.

I am saving the itineraries that we had planned and when we can safely plan our trip to Japan we will definitely be booking with this fabulous company.

We spent 2 days in Kyoto - the first day we explored west Kyoto on our own and quickly realized we needed a tour guide to get the most out of our experience. We were able to book Javier one day in advance (in a bit of a frazzled rush while touring on our own). Starting with Javier's prompt response to my inquiry, every bit of our experience with him was seamless. We did a half day morning tour of east Kyoto. Having Javier made navigating the city effortless. When we arrived at the touring destinations Javier gave us the cultural context and some interesting facts for each location. I highly recommend Javier to any english speaking of spanish speaking tourists in Kyoto!!
