    My daughter and I visited Kyoto for the first time and Kazuo was our tour guide. From the very beginning, Kazuo was organized and professional. He created an itinerary that took into account our favourite interests, including taking us to the Fishimi Inari Shrine, the Bamboo forest and Kinkakuji Temple. It was very humid during our trip and my daughter was recovering from an infection, so Kazuo allowed us to go at our own pace. The highlight for us was spending time in the Gion district walking on the cobblestone paths and purveying the quaint shops. I later learned that Kazuo actually went to Gion the day before in order to prepare himself for our tour the next day. Throughout our tour, Kazuo gave us fascinating details and history about the places we visited. Kazuo even contacted a matcha company I was wanting to visit and made arrangements with them to ship my order to my hotel since they are not open to the public. Kazuo is an outstanding guide! We loved Kyoto very much and would like to return again to have Kazuo show us more of Kyoto's amazing landmarks. Thank you, Kazuo

    We chose this experience so we could fit a number of sights into a single day as we could since we were only spending 3 full days in Kyoto. This allowed us to focus on seeing the things we wanted to rather than transportation between each sight.

    Marine-san worked with us over email to come up with an itinerary that was efficient and included the majority of the sights that we wanted to see.

    On the day Shenji-san sent us a message so we had his contact details and arrived promptly at our hotel. He drove us to each location, took photos of us (so we could all be in them!), and gave us additional facts about each location. He was a fantastic host for the day and we'd highly recommend this experience.

    Kevin was awesome. Professional, knowledgeable, and gave us the perfect experience. Easily would’ve taken us 3 days to visit the sites on our own... and we certainly would not have had the context provided from the tour. With COVID a continuing concern, having a vehicle to transport us around instead of hopping on and off a dozen+ trains and busses, was a comforting benefit. Will use this service again when other family comes out to visit Japan in the future.

    Beautiful day exploring the area with Chris! Chris is very knowledgeable, wise and kind. He was thoughtful and thorough throughout the tour and genuinely loves to share his love and knowledge of the area. There is nothing quite like being taken to special hard to find spots by a local. He took us to very special nature spots that would have been very difficult to find ourselves. I have lots of beautiful memories and photos to remember this fun and special day! Thank you, Chris!!

    The guys were so nice and energetic and it was so fun zipping through Shinjuku! I didn't expect to go so fast and that was awesome.

    We arrived in Tokyo as first-time visitors to Japan on Sunday night and Yuko picked us up at our hotel on Monday morning for a tour. My 17yo daughter is very interested in the pop culture of Japan and Yuko had done her research to show us all the great spots in Harajuku. She balanced that out with a trip to Meiji-jingu shrine where we learned about more traditional Japanese culture. I wish I had Yuko with me for the rest of this trip! I highly recommend City Unscripted trips and Yuko.

    My brother and I scheduled a half day private walking tour our first full day visiting Kyoto. Our guide was Miho - she was absolutely wonderful! Very knowledgeable about the area & did a great job fitting in many stops without making our day feel rushed. Throughout the day she also gave us tips on good restaurants to try, how to use the public transportation (subway & buses very popular), other sights that were must see & local shopping. It was the perfect way to start our time in Kyoto & her recommendations made the rest of our time there very enjoyable.

    We had an amazing experience with Yuko in our tour. My partner and Had a full day trip in Hiroshima. Departed from Kyoto Station at 7:20am and arrived at 9am. There we met with Yuko, and she took us first to Miyajima. We saw the Tori (under repair), the shrine and walked around. Then we had lunch and in the afternoon walked around the Peace Park and went to the Hiroshima Museum. We left at 5pm and arrived at 7pm in Kyoto.

    Yuko was amazing. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and kind. We were able to learn a ton about not only Hiroshima, but also japanese culture and people. Highly recommend taking a guided tour, otherwise you’ll miss a bunch of context.

We went everywhere I wanted to go and then he even took me to a few places that he thought I would be interested in....He knew the closest spots to drop me off and then waited for me. Very very very glad I booked this 1 day tour...I do day tours most everywhere I go and he is definitely one of the BEST!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    We had a fantastic time and the highlight of our experience of Tokyo. I couldn’t recommend this experience more. Lots of food and drinks and some amazing little restaurants. Simon was the perfect host, very knowledgeable and lots of fun.

    If you don‘t want to spend a lot of time on public transport and still see some of Kyotos most famous highlights plus a lot of beautiful places on the way I highly recommend Kyoto Bike Tour!

    Ray was the perfect guide for my day tour. He is very knowledgeable, helpful and great company and made sure I had a fantastic day in Kyoto.
    My Cannondale bike was in great condition and a perfect match for my height (which can be a bit of a struggle in Japan sometimes).
    Throughout the 8hrs tour we visited the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, the Fushimi Inari Taisha, the Kiyomizu-dera, the Geisha District and the Kinkaku-ji cycling along rivers, rice fields, passing kimono factories, the former Imperial Palace grounds and many backstreets of Kyoto and had lunch at a lovely local restaurant. Ray explained the history of the various places and made sure to share some fun facts too and he also took lots of photos at the sites and on the bikes so don‘t worry if you‘re travelling solo like me - you‘ll still have some great shots of you in the end as a memory.

    When you come to Kyoto make sure you make time for a tour with Kyoto Bike Tour!

    This was our second trip touring with our wonderful guide Khizer. We had arrived in to Tokyo amidst all the shutdowns surrounding CoronaVirus fears. Khizer knew what was open and sent me a list of what we could choose from for our day. We chose the Toshugu Shrine complex in Nikko and the Edo Wonderland experience for the day. Both were amazing and having Khizer there with us made it that more enjoyable. He is so kind and accommodating and even offered to help us with information beyond our last day with him. It could have been a very stressful time but he made it a memorable experience that begs for your return to experience more. Hope to see you again soon Khizer!
