Ada was very knowledgeable and took efforts to communicate with all members even though it’s a group tour. She took us through the narrow lanes of Gion and explained the history and present of Kyoto. Really amazing !

A friendly guide who took us around the areas of the geishas homes, the tea houses where buisness is conducted and pointed out the boards where school times/teachers are displayed. She also pointed out the true geisha ladies in the street of which we saw the 3 levels of geisha. It’s quite a lot to take in and I wish I had taken a little time to read about the Koyoto geisha system before joining the tour. Then it would have made much more sense. It’s a lovely wander through areas of Koyoto that we had not visited before. Give it a go and if time have a brief read of the 3 tiers of Koyoto Geisha first.

Travelled alone - May 2024
This guide was considerate and waited for late comers to show up. However, the tour was not prepared well, because there were too many uninteresting stops with no relevance to the actual tour locations. The guru ran out of time and rushed through the last 2 or 3 segments of the tour, which got me lost as a result! I had to complete the tour alone in the dark and find my own way back to the subway. Not nice.
