The tour guide was Awesome!! Informative, well spoken and very knowledgeable.
The tour pick up site is easy to find and only a 3 minute walk from Hotel Kintetsu Kyoto Station where we stayed, which made transit very easy.

Unlike the giant bus style tours, it felt like your friend in town was taking you through the little backstreets of Kyoto and giving you an insider view into Japanese history, culture and customs.
We are big fans of cycling tours - you cover a lot of ground efficiently and with greater access to the local streets.

We did the 2 hr experience here last week and was one of the highlights of our tour.
Many of these buildings have been torn down but this one has been able to be preserved because they are able to maintain it with the money that they make from doing this amazing tour.

We were the only ones on most of the tours and activities we did while in Kyoto but this time there was a very nice family also on the tour.

Since our travel agent booked this for us as part of our tour in Japan, I cannot comment on price, however it was definitely one of the the highlights and very memorable.
On the day, we had another group of people attending and Masumi greeted us and she gave us a quick tour of the temple before bringing us into the building.

We would highly recommend the Kyoto Rickshaw tours to anyone visiting Kyoto (the 60 minutes is more than enough time).
Glad we did this- my wife is excellent in her "By the seat of your pants tours!"--and this was something that was a treat.

Based on past reviews, we selected Sunrise Tours JTB for 1-day tour to Hiroshima and Miyajima Island.
Outside Hiroshima Train station we found that our JR pass is also valid in Hiroshima Loop Buses (City tour Buses stand just outside the station) so we took one of the couple of route bus.

We did the tour today with Lee and I have to say after years of travelling and going on various different tours this was hands down the most informative, thoughtful and well presented tour I have ever experienced.
We have done numerous walking tours all over the world and Lee is in the top 3 most memorable!

His thorough knowledge of history, religion, friendly but very professional attitude made our tour– City of Culture Kyoto – one of the most memorable tours during our two-week holiday in Japan.
This is my second tour with Urban Adventures and would happily join one of their tours again for their informal nature allowing you to feel more like a local rather than an 'in-your-face' tourist.

We often enjoy walking tours when visiting a new city, so booked this tour as it offered a mix of history and local cuisine.
Normally food tours are just that..you walk around and eat some food and have some drinks and socialize and experience the night life.
