      The best Kyoto private tours & experiences with locals

      Looking for the ultimate Kyoto private tours in Japan’s glittering cultural gem? City Unscripted has got you covered. The cobbled streets and winding lanes of this otherworldly cityscape are best explored on foot with a passionate local leading the way. On private tours in Kyoto, you’ll immerse yourself in a snapshot of centuries-ago Japan, where geishas float down lantern-lit alleys and traditional multi-course meals are fit for ancient royalty. But more than that, our private tours of Kyoto will show you the surprisingly modern marvels of this living museum – a world of neon-lit nightlife and festive karaoke bars – and reveal how these two halves collide.

      Experience Kyoto like a local

      Kyoto’s major attractions like Gion, the glittering geisha district, and wood-built Higashiyama have played host to hundreds of thousands of happy visitors over the decades. But Japan’s perfectly preserved piece of history has many more secrets only a local guide could reveal on Kyoto private tours with us. Step off the tourist trail and experience the city through a local’s eyes. On private tours in Kyoto, explore bustling traditional markets, head to a local haunt for an ice-cold beer and bar snacks, and watch the sunset over Kamo River while snacking on Gyoza dumplings.

      Latest reviews from our guests

        Great City to discover. It’s advisable to know yourself which program you like to do (i. e. what exactly you want to see and experience). Guide was very helpful in organizing transportation and assisting with translating. Be prepared that English often is not spoken, even by young Japanese. However, people are happy to help foreigners, including the Guide. What did you enjoy the most? Learning about Japanese Tea

        I had a most memorable day with Taibi, in Kyoto! It didn't feel as if I was with a guide. I felt like I had known him all my life. He's Moroccan, but has lived in Japan for over 20 years so had extensive knowledge of Kyoto. He took me to the places where the locals hang out and made sure that I didn't feel like a tourist. Hands down the best experience I've had and I travel quite frequently. I legit didn't want to leave. Saw so much of Kyoto in 8 hours and now I'm planning my next trip back!
