Kyoto's Back Street Tour

Reviewed by: Steve Freeman, 2015/09/24

Great trip, very organised and informative. We had a brilliant experience, the guide was excellent, knowledgeable, told us all the local history and where best to go. Keiko was very polite, friendly and kept us very safe on the roads. We highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Kyoto. What a beautiful place to visit.

The tour teaches that the city of Kyoto is truly filled with history!

Far better than taking the bus or a train! The streets of Kyoto are filled with experiences full of scents and sounds that can only be experienced through a bike ride.

You really get a sense of how tall the Torii gate of Heian Shrine are when your ride right up to it!

Plus my guide was excellent!! Pacing me so that I was never bored or tired, she was full of knowledge, answering every question I had during the tour!

And when she caught those glimmers of interest in my eyes, she would quickly change the course such as showing me both the new and old Gojyo-bashi. Also when we happened to find a mini festival, she made a few additional stops for me to enjoy it!

The freedom you get when you have an excellent guide and a bike is your mode of transportation!

This course gave me the confidence to take on a longer course the next time I visit Japan!

  • Found a festival going on during the trip!

  • Back Alley of Kyoto!

  • Where the movie "SAYURI" was taken

  • This place was really nice
