Lovely walking tour but outstanding lunch

Reviewed by: FirsttimeinKyoto, 2019/11/16

The bamboo grove is breathtaking but we struggled to keep up with our guide through the train station because our group was larger than expected and she made no concessions for the crowded conditions.
The highlight was the lunch on a long boat. We expected a bento box but got a banquet which you cook yourself on a little stove. You have to be able to sit on the floor of the boat for the hour’s cruise but it’s worth it for the views and the experience. Boat capacity 16. Lots of nice places to eat next to the river if boarding a small river raft and sitting cross legged is not for you.

could have been better

Weather was terrible, raining all the way through, but no mention in the first few days before the trip the trip that would suggeat the condition. We could've dressed more appropriately. Tour guide was very nice, but she should've stayed in the boat with us. Food was average, nothing special...and we didnt even know what we we were eating!
