    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.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Kyoto despite the rain! Our guide Giada took us to three main sites of interest and a great market. Her English was perfect and we ate in a locals place for lunch. Highly recommend.

    Juraj (pronounced “your I”) was an absolutely amazing tour guide. He catered the tour to the types of sites we wanted to see and was so knowledgeable about the sites, the history, and the legends. We had ample time at each location and learned so much about the area. In addition to the tour highlights, he showed us little local places to eat, to shop, and to explore. At day’s end, he recommended a fantastic local hot pot restaurant, which was both delicious and reasonable. Definitely ask for Juraj on your next tour of Kyoto, Tokyo, or Osaka. In addition to being a great guide, he is also a really nice and interesting person, which made the day fly by.

    As a solo traveler, I visited Kyoto, Japan with City Unscripted tour guide Tess Liu. She is a fun, energetic and passionate about travel. As a personal tour guide, she listened to my interests and put together a personalized tour which was fun filled and amazing. She took me to all the important and well known places that make Kyoto unique. Tess loves to travel herself, and you can see and feel her passion. A native of Taiwan, She is a young and vibrant women who immerses herself in the history and culture of every place she lives. She shared interesting information about every place we visited, down to the special sequence of how to ring the huge bell at a shrine to ward off bad luck and bring good luck into your life. Tess explained the difference between shrines and temples, and made sure to point those differences out when we were at each shrine or temple. We even went to Fukushima Inari, the shrine of a thousand Tori gates at night to see it in all her glory! At the Golden Palace, she told me about the story of a successful man who build an empire, and his greedy grandson who tried to outdo him with no success. Tess takes the time to customize each tour, City Unscripted had me fill out a questionnaire and paired me up with Tess. She knew I was a Foodie, and took me to Nishiki Market, pointed out the different and interesting foods she thought I would enjoy. Tess even threw in a wonderful surprise, after hiking up to the top of Bamboo Groove, she took me to a wonderful foot bath before we continued on our way, a great break for tired and weary feet!! We finished with a amazing dinner of wonderful new delights at a Izakiya in the train station before parting ways. And she made sure I got on the right train. I had the BEST tour with Tess Liu. I have definitely made a friend for life!! We went to so many places, I know I would not been able to find on my own in just one day. We took trains and buses which made for a unique tour. You will have an truly adventure with Tess, she will amaze you!!
