My wife and I booked the full day tour to Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu Temple. First of all, this is a very serious money making operation. If you want to be with two busloads of people, this is your tour. Our tour guide's command of...More

A short, sharp but very interesting snapshot of Kyoto Shinto Shrine and Buddhist temples in Kyoto for those with little time to spare. The tour starts at Osaka Station and arriving in Kyoto by JR train, not the Shinkansen, just the express train which is...More

We booked a one day tour with Sunrise and apart from a fair degree of difficulty finding the ‘meeting point’, it all went pretty smoothly. Cost was about 14,000 yen, which isn’t cheap, but probably a fair figure. The tour included visits to 5 historic...More

The sights are great but I wouldn't recommend the tour with Sunrise. It was way too fast. We didn't have any time to peruse souvenirs at the large temple Nijo-Jo it would've been nice to have had an extra 15min. The guide power-walked from place...More

Morning tour was very nice with temples and palaces. Unlike the tour on Tokyo, the guide was not that easy to understand. While the Tokyo tour had a fantastic lunch, this lunch was terrible. I did not come halfway around the world for cold chicken...More
