A breathtaking, memorable day

Although the whole day was full of interesting sights, our favorite part was the traditional Japanese lunch and Maiko performance. The Kiyomizudera temple that we visited on the tour was breathtaking as well. Our two tour guides were enthusiastic, helpful, and spoke good English, which helped us tremendously. A fantastic day, that we will remember and cherish for years to come.

Unforgettable Kyoto Experience

Reviewed by: Steph, 2017/08/26

My husband and I had a fun and unforgettable experience with this tour.

The guide that the tour provided was very kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. With her guiding us we were able to visit some of Kyoto's most famous and picturesque attractions like Fushimi Inari, Gion and Kiyomizudera. While visiting these places, we were able to experience Japan's unique culture and history. So we were glad that we booked this tour because we would not have been able to visit these places without someone guiding us.

Most of all, we had the privilege to see first hand a maiko perform a dance for us while we were eating lunch, which is a very difficult and otherwise expensive thing to do. Seeing the maiko and a significant part of Japan's culture and history left us happy. After which, we had an opportunity to take her picture to serve as a souvenir for this tour.

We were glad we booked this tour through Veltra. Thank you Veltra and thank you Shinki Bus tours for this wonderful experience.

As note though, please wear comfortable shoes since this tour entails a lot of walking.

Wonderful experience in Kyoto!

Reviewed by: Giuseppe / Italy, 2017/08/15

We have been to Kyoto a few days ago and we have chosen this offer because it promised to meet a Maiko (a Geisha apprentice) and to see in a short time the two sites that we would otherwise have spent more time looking for. The promises have been maintained and even overcome. We could do just in one day (from 9am to 5pm) things that would have taken more time and, as far as meeting Maiko, we would not have or could do otherwise. Beautiful the two sites, one of Kyoto's best, Fushimi Inari-Taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-Dera Temple, which we could visit quietly and photograph.
But the part that most characterizes the offer is the possibility of a typically Japanese dining at a typical restaurant in a downtown park in Kyoto, where we tasted the local flavors, drank tea, and met a real Geisha (the offer provided a Maiko, Geisha's apprentice, but ours just got Geisha's qualification, she was 20 years old) and it's been a real hit, because meeting a real Geisha and being able to talk and take photos, even with her, is by no means easy.
Its dance and its ways were lovely, even for children (I recommend it especially to them). Geisha also responded to some of our questions, having a few moments with us after dancing.
Our two escorts were very nice.
Above all I would like to thank again Mi Wa (I apologize if it is not well written), which has immediately created with us a climate of healthy friendliness.
In conclusion, I think this formula is very convenient, and I would definitely do it again.

  • Thank You very much!
