Our guide Javier was superb. For both tours he covered the main attractions with insight, commanding knowledge of history, and with very good patience in relation to our easily distracted children. But then he also took us off the main tourist thoroughfares for some quiet, exclusive trips down pathways close by. So we saw all the main attractions, but also little shops and paths, and gardens and ponds we would not have discovered but for his knowledge and guidance. Highly recommend! And hope to see Javier again when we next go to Kyoto.

Incredible day spent in Kyoto guided by Nicolas, a French speaking Swiss guide from Kyoto Daily Tours. I asked him to “experience” rather than “visit” the city and it by far exceeded my expectations. I discovered Kyoto past and present and highly recommend his services.

I was very specific about having a guide who would be able to give my husband and me an in-depth overview of the history of Kyoto, with a particular focus on the Heian Period, also known as the golden age of Japan. Javier did not disappoint. We worked together on constructing a one day itinerary which would best serve our specific interest. Yet we appreciated also very much how Javier also added a more contemporary perspective on the various places that we visited. Our tour took included Kinkakuji Temple, Ryoanji temple, Arashiyama Fushimi Inari Shrine Kiyomizu Temple, Nanzenji temple. Javier was totally accommodating in adding visits that were not on the original itinerary. He really wanted us to thoroughly enjoy our day! Thank you, Javier!

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus my son and I are unable to go on the trip to Japan we've planned for a long time. One of the first tours I booked was a night walk through Kyoto's Geisha district - the Kyoto Daily Tours offers one that's very well reviewed. The booking, deposit, and confirmation all went very smoothly, and Javier followed up with me several times. Then, disaster struck and our entire trip had to be cancelled. This is why I give high marks, because of the grace, understanding, and swift refund... I feel terrible for all of us and know we can come through this. I'll visit Japan at some point and when I do, Javier will be the first person I contact!

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.
