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.
It was an excellent experience, a small group of 12 persons, we went walking across different temples with great explanation of details, that in big group tours you cannot have.

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.

Plenty of tours focus on "things" whereas this tour focused on "people" and how they lived.
Tour provided a good opportunity to explore with an expert this atmospheric area by night with its geisha culture and paper lantern-lit teahouses and restaurants, and have the chance of glimpsing a genuine geisha...

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.
We wanted to get to know Gion by having a tour guide show us the sights.

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.

My partner and I did two tours on the 8th in Kyoto, the afternoon walking tour and the evening tour.
We joined the evening tour and our guide Tatsuro was very friendly, personable and knowledgeable about Kyoto's history, geography of the Gion District and happy to explain many aspects of Japanese culture.

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.

I am very much pleased and satisfied with Arigato Japan Food Tours.
We tasted so many yummy things on our Nishiki Market tour: octopus, pickles (lots of pickles), fresh mochi with strawberry, fish cakes, tofu and some yummy natural drink made with local honey and fruits like yuzu.
