Tours and Tickets by Kyoto Fun

Discover the beauty of Kyoto on a bicycle tour!

1. Bicycle is by far the best way to get around Kyoto’s crowded streets.

Kyoto has a great geography for two wheels. Why wait for crowded buses or be stuck in traffic with an expensive taxi when you have the freedom to move around at will like the locals do.

2. We take you on scenic routes which are chosen with your safety in mind.

Riding a bike alone you might get lost or end up on very narrow streets. We know the best way to get around and give you tips on staying safe. We also know quiet side streets with lots of character and charm.

3.We tell you stories of the city’s past and give you background knowledge along the way.

​Learn about the world of the shogun and samurai, the geisha house and even get a background on the shinto and buddhist beliefs. Learning about the cultural legacy of old Kyoto is a great insight to Japanese customs and culture.

Discover Kyoto's Geisha District of Gion!

No trip to Kyoto is complete without a trip to the old preserved district of Gion, and it's no surprise why it's such a popular place to visit. It is one of the only places in the world where you can see a real-life "geisha" walking along the beautiful alleyways. Join our Gion Night Walk and we can tell you all about the mysterious lives of the geisha as we walk along these charming cobblestoned streets all lit up with lantern light. Let these places some to life with a fun and friendly guide to tell you what happens behind the closed doors of Gion.

While staying in Kyoto, we decided to book a tour at the last minute. We did not think we would get any responses. Surprisingly, after we send out the request at 10PM for the next morning tour, we get a reply from Niall. He asked us to meet with him at at 7:00Am. When we went there, he's already there waiting for us. I like this tour because we could use the local transportation system and go at our own pace. Also, Naill timed everything perfectly so we were able to see a lot in a day at an extremely affordable price. We highly recommend booking this tour with Naill. He is friendly and very knowledgeable. We will book him again if we 're in the area.

October 2018. My husband and me were lucky because we were the only ones having signed up for an evening walking tour through the Gion district with an izakaya (pub) visit. The meeting point was easy to find and the tour was great. The best bit though was the izakaya visit. With the help of the guide, we were able to order from the Japanese menu, not the much reduced English one. And just the chatting about live in Japan was great.

We had a wonderful time meeting in a tea house with a Geisha named Kimi she was very beautiful & through our interpreter we learned about her life as a Giesha from such a young age of 14 years old it was fascinating Niall our guide was exceptional when he took us for a guided tour through the streets of Kyoto & some ancient temples & eating houses it was so magical he was friendly & funny My prized purchase is a hand made cup,saucer & plate set in a typical Japanese style in a store along the way which I use every weekend as a special reminder of that day I would recommend Niall & the tours he provides to anyone it was worth every cent warm wishes Sheryl & Trent Bartlett

So much fun! This was one of our favorite tours in Kyoto, we biked for about 3 hours all over the outskirts of Kyoto and saw a lot of unique sites and shops off the beaten path. Would definitely do it again next time we go to Japan!

Kyoto Fun is one of the best tour guides I’ve had. Neall is an English speaking tour guide and he is very knowledgeable and knows what he’s doing! The early bird Kyoto tour is an excellent idea especially in a city full of history and a tourist magnet! We also did the discovery of geisha tour! Oh my!! It was definitely the icing on the cake of our trip! Thank you Neall for showing us Kyoto! I had so much fun and one of the best travel experiences I had. Arigatou gozaimasu!
