temples of the World Heritage Sites and Arashiyama with a private guide


Kyoto has too many attractive places to see as the 1000-year-capital to complete your sightseeing in one day. So, I recommend you to use one day in the western part, and other days for other parts.

Kinkakuji Temple - You will see a breathtaking view of the golden pavilion and the garden.

Ryoanji Temple - You will have a peaceful time facing to the world-famous rock garden.

Arashiyama - You will enjoy the beautiful scenery, which was loved by court nobles in old days, especially be amazed at the beautiful bamboo forests.

Arashiyama Monkey Park - there are about 130 Japanese monkeys and each monkey has its name and a family register. They are fed in front of the observation platform. You can feed them!

You can choose where to end the tour in the central area.

Important!
I require that you be covered by your own travel insurance policies.

A Recent Review of this tour

My family of 5 (3 teenagers) had an excellent time with Tomo. We were lucky enough to be in Kyoto during the Gion Festival and Tomo knew exactly where to take us so we could view a few of the floats as they passed by. She gave excellent descriptions and historical narrative of the places we visited including the Golden Pavilion and Rock Garden. She guided us to the Monkey Park and bamboo forest and showed us interesting angles to take pictures. She was friendly and knowledgeable and easy to understand
