    The rickshaw ride through the bamboo forest was amazing our guides were extremely friendly and informative and very kind and nice . Kiyo was fabulous, so refreshing to find someone so friendly in Japan. The hot seat pads were brilliant in the cold weather and the photos Kiyo took of us were really professional. I would highly recommend this trip.

    We took two rickshaw tours with the same provider and they were both excellent. It’s not just a good way to cover some distance and not be exhausted, but the tour guides were excellent.
    Very relaxing and worth every penny!

    Absolutely enjoyed this tour, we did the 1 hour and our guide Yusaku was so knowledgeable and hilarious. He took us through Kyoto visiting shrines and even the geiko districts. Yusaku stopped many times to take our picture and he did a fantastic job. I highly recommend this tour if you are with your significant other.
    Is this the thing to do here or should it be a river cruise ?

    Very hard to locate from info supplied as had to get to area location first which details omitted. Finally got there late but ready and still waiting for us with welcome note.
    Enjoyable Ride

    We went on a 2 hour rickshaw ride with another couple. Our ride took us all over the historic area. Our guides were full of information and spoke good English. They looked after us really well when we had a little rain and we stayed warm and dry. We were impressed with their professionalism. A highlight was going along a street where many of the geisha live. The street is not mentioned in the guide books and was deserted. We were very lucky to pass a geisha in the street as apparently they seldom appear during the day. Overall we thoroughly recommend this trip.
    Amazing tour!!

    Such an amazing tour with the Kyoto Rickshaw crew! Words can't express how much fun this was. The guys that pulled our rickshaw were fun and informed us about all things Japan ranging from where to go and what means what. They also took the best photos. Can't recommend this more!
