Tour description provided by Viator

Discover Kyoto as you would if you were visiting a friend who lived there! With a full day to explore, discover the real Kyoto with a like-minded local who will create an experience customised to include the famous attractions you’d most like to see, as well as revealing a few hidden gems along the way! See the city’s highlights or discover local neighbourhoods (or do both!), get oriented and immerse yourself in the ‘City of Temple’s’ unique culture with a local by your side to navigate. Ditch the guidebook and see Kyoto like a local!
Join a like-minded Local Host to be introduced to Kyoto’s top attractions, get your bearings and start exploring the city! Your Local Host will share insider insight and tips so you can get acquainted with Kyoto’s culture, and will share hidden local gems as well as famous sights with you. Visit iconic and sacred sites like the Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kinkajuki Temple, explore culture rich districts like Gion or get off the beaten path in historic neighbourhoods with your local to navigate - the possibilities are endless! Eat like a local when you stop for lunch at an authentic spot recommended by your local that suits your tastes and budgets. Snack on delicious local street food along the way too - your local will explain the different options and any dishes you may be unfamiliar with! Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, helping you to discover other areas of Kyoto that you will love.
