The bamboo grove was spectacular. Pictures were amazing but seeing it person is sooo much ch better. The mountain climb to the tea garden and beyond was an unexpected lovely surprise. The views are breathtaking. The temples and shrines are a thing of beauty as well. Monkey park was thoroughly enjoyable. From the beautiful hike to reaching the top and enjoying the monkeys. Marvelous!!
The experience was good. Mariko our guide was very kind. This trip was a good way to spend one day in Kyoto without having to worry about logistics. I wish though that some areas we would have more time but it's understandable given the time we've received as it's about 40-50 minutes between each site. Overall, I'm glad we did this tour. It made everything so much easier.
We were given a background of all the places we went to while we were still at the bus. Then when we reached the sites, we had enough time to explore the places on our own. Our tour guide, Hiromi, was very knowledgeable and sweet. She spoke English well. In addition, the bus ride was very smooth and we were able to rest while we were in the bus.
Great experience....Very comfortable trip. Our guide Rika was very sweet and well informed. Would like to visit Kyoto again for sure...!!!
Great guide with good conversation and information about the region. Lovely hike and first experience at Japanese Onsen was enjoyable!
