Whether you have a full day, half a day, or just three hours, soak up the spirit of ancient Japan on one of our personalized city tours of Kyoto. Led by a local guide who’s already uncovered every inch of their city, our walking tours in Kyoto are the perfect way to discover the hidden haunts and lesser-known landmarks beyond Kyoto’s world-famous attractions.
On a private tour of Kyoto, you’ll get an authentic glimpse into the Japan of centuries ago. From exploring the 1200-year-old Kiyomizu-dera Temple to walking the wood-built streets of fairytale Higashiyama (and taking a moment to marvel at the geishas floating through lantern-lit Gion), our personalized tours of Kyoto beautifully narrate Japan’s fascinating history.
But you’ll also have the opportunity to see the city through a local lens. In fact, some of the most memorable things to do in Kyoto are the pastimes of the people who call the city home: grabbing a beer at a cozy izakaya or eating street food while watching the sunset over Kamo River. On a private tour with City Unscripted, you’ll experience the highlights and hidden gems – simply tell us what your dream local tour of Kyoto looks like, and we’ll make it happen.
