Half day private guide service in Kyoto

Half day private guide service in Kyoto

Get beneath the surface of Kyoto with a half day private guide service. See the famous sights along with some lesser known hidden gems.

There is no better way to get to get that extra insight into a destination than to have the company of an expert local guide for a day. We are delighted to be able to include private guiding in Kyoto. Your local guide will come to your hotel at a time you decide and take you on a 4 hour sightseeing tour. We can design an itinerary for you or if you prefer, leave the itinerary open so you can have the flexibility to decide what to see and do. Your guide will have some recommendations of their own for you and these are sure to include some of their own personal highlights. As well as providing that extra detail about the sights you will visit, your day with a guide is also a great opportunity to learn more about every day life in modern Japan and to talk with a local resident.

All our guides are fully licensed by the Japanese Guiding Association and a day with a private guide is always a highlight of any trip.

The private guide service is included as standard on many of our Self-Guided Adventures and can be added to any Fully Tailored Trip

When to go: The private guide service is available 365 days a year. However, the number of guides is limited so if you are travelling at peak seasons such as Spring and Autumn or over New Year then please be sure to let us know well in advance.
