As we only had very limited time in Kyoto and have previously used these type of buses to see some of the key attractions in a short time frame, we decided this was a good opportunity. We were much mistaken. I appreciate that the we are in a different country and can't expect that everyone speaks English, but we booked this as it advertised the taped commentary in other languages. This was virtually non existent, it was very limited and probably 75% of our time was spent listening to very annoying music whilst the tour guide clearly had a lot to say about the areas we were driving through and some of the incredible sites but nobody within the company had the deemed it important to put the information onto the recording for the foreign guests! It cost us over £40 - for what we got out of it we would have been better just using public transport.

The guide on this tour didn’t speak English. It was very frustrating because I didn’t understand any of the explanations about the places we visited.

Sites are wonderful but Tour is really for Japanese. Headphones are provided for English but our guide spoke nonstop in Japanese into mic and we could not hear recorded commentary. Most of the actual walking is self guided. We were all fit so not a problem with time, but could be challenging for others. Not value for money as you are really just paying for transport to the sites.

Only do these tours if you can understand Japanese. We did a half day tour visiting three temples. The tour guide spoke in Japanese which we did not understand. We were given headphones so we could listen to English audio. This was not good as the English audio was very sparse and clearly did not contain anywhere near the amount of information that the tour guide was giving others on the tour. A dissapointing tour and too expensive considering the lack of English information available.

The tour is only in Japanese not a word in English.This tour is not for any elderly as the tour needs you to climb steps and uphill.the tour guide said depart at 450 Pm .At 1715 hrs we realised the bus had left from the place we were dropped. we had to ask the security at the bus park.We came back to hotel in a taxi.we paid neary 4600 yen x 4 for the tour.the only English speaking staff are at the Kyoto station booth who help you buy the ticket and bus boarding. Guides speaker volume too loud in the bus.
