    Akane took us to some lovely places that I probably would not have known to go on my own. Also she was very flexible with the changes in our schedule due our previous tour going over its allotted time and I really appreciated that!

    Excellent walking and public transport tour Helped us find spots we didn’t even know existed. Our guide was most informative about history and also everyday life in Japan.

Private Tours in Kyoto

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.
