On this quintessential tour of Kyoto, you'll comfortably stroll along the capital's streets, visit its famous sights, and enjoy a lunch tailored to your preferences with a knowledgeable guide.

Next, you'll explore Gion, a well-preserved geisha district that retains its old allure, while learning local stories from your guide. After seeing the famous Hanamikoji street, you'll relax at Kenninji Temple, believed to be the city's oldest zen temple, and enjoy its pristine gardens, striking architecture, and centuries-old works of art. Lunch will be at Kyoto’s gourmet center, the 400-year Nishiki Market, which has traditional restaurants, food stalls, and shops. When booking, please inform your guide of your dietary restrictions (if any) so they can pick a place suited to your needs. Halal, vegan, and vegetarian options are available.
