Things to know


    We had such a great time with Aiko! She was incredibly knowledgeable and shared so much about local/Japanese culture with us. We walked through Nishiki market where we ate a bunch of dessert and non-dessert foods - and even stopped for some craft beer too. We ended the tour in historic Gion, which was a great way to cap off the tour!

    MIKI we will miss you! We had the best afternoon running around with MIiki — she arranged hard-to-get reservations at some Instagram-worthy food stops and booked us the most unreal Wagyu restaurant for dinner. They don’t have a Michelin star, but they should. We also did a Sake Brewery tour and tasting. Such a great day. We did not know that our tour price included some sampling costs so she covered our pancake and transport fares because we had already sort of paid for it upfront. We used public transport and walking, things are far apart in Kyoto so if you don’t walk quickly I’d recommended having your guide arrange more door-to-door transport. It’s an absolute yes to all three stops we had that day — thank you Miki!

    This tour was booked through Viator but the actual company is City Unscripted. Guendalina was our guide and she was truly an excellent guide around Kyoto. A truly authentic experience with such a wonderful person! Would highly recommend to anyone. Also, it was a rainy day which we were bummed about and she still made it absolutely worth our time.
