Enjoy must-see spots and sake museum with a private guide

This tour fits for those who want to visit famous tourist spots as well as sake tasting. We start from Gion, geicha district where you feel traditional Japanese architecture. Then we walk along the way called Sannenzaka Slope to enjoy shopping at lovely small shops to Kiyomizu Temple. This temple is standing on the hillside, so you can see the nice view of Kyoto city.
Then move to Gekkeikan Same Museum for tasting. The last spot is Fushimi Inari Shrine famous for its more than thousand red torii gates.

This tour is changeable depending on your request. Please let me know your request.

A Recent Review of this tour

Setsuko was very friendly, informative and flexible. She was of great help in helping us arranging for an ad hoc rental of kimono and making sure the tour was child friendly. This is my second time using tourbylocals and I highly recommend them in getting your easy going stress free personal tour.
