We had one day to see Kyoto and thought a bike option would be the best - and it was. Eric was our guide and had tremendous knowledge of (and love for) Kyoto. He had a depth of knowledge that made every stop interesting and was ready and willing to answer all of our questions about the culture and region. He suggested some great stops for photos and hidden gems that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise and we stopped for a great local Japanese lunch which was a great addition. The biking allows us to see areas that would be hard by car but it was not a hard bike very casual pace so we can talk and ask questions along the way. Highly recommended!

The guide, Philippe, did a great job of dodging the crowds. His local knowledge was helpful. Tour went to some nicer places, did miss some attractions we had hoped to see but maybe next time.

We had an amazing tour, that absolutely exceeded my expectations.
Even though I had been to Kyoto before, I still learned a lot on this tour, not only about the history of Gion but also about life in Kyoto/Japan in general. Niall shared from personal experiences from himself and friends, which only enriched the whole experience. He also gave us great recommendations for dinner and the next few days in Kyoto. He also seems very well connected in Kyoto and can surely help with requests that are not on the tour itineraries.
I absolutely recommed this tour and will so to family & friends coming to Japan in the future.

The tour with Niall, and 2 guide trainees that joined our group, was superb! We've been in Kyoto for a few days, saw beautiful places, but only thanks to this tour did everything come together, to a full experience and appreciation of why visit Kyoto. Niall was knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and an absolute pleasure to listen and learn from. This tour is the highlight of our Kyoto experience.

Taking the Early Bird Tour was the best decision we made during our short stay in Kyoto. We went to the right place, at the right time, with the right guides.

The Kiyomizu Monastery, the Fushimi Inari Shrine, and the thousand-gate trail are must-sees. The early morning start avoids the crowds and the morning light enhances photos. Niall and his team delightfully conveyed the history, culture, and customs of Kyoto for us newbies. We finished the tour smarter and smiling!

We had so much fun that we booked the Nishiki Foodie Tour and Gion Night Walk (Geisha walking tour) too. Thank you Niall, Maya, Philipe, and Ai!

Niall was outstanding! My daughter and I were traveling to Kyoto for our first time in Japan, and one of our first times overseas. Niall couldn’t have been more helpful. He met us at the train platform, showed us around, helped us shop for things my daughter needed, and made sure we arrived at our destination right on time. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide.

The bike tour of Kyoto was a superb choice! Niall's humorous and thoughtful explanation made for my daughter and I a memorable morning. My daughter said the bike tour was the most enjoyable part of the trip.

Niall would choose the route and pace according to our situation. He also offered to take photos for us to keep our memories. Thank you so much! I will recommend to my friends!

We had a stunning day with Eric as the guide. His knowledge on the history of Japan is exceptional, with a lovely demeanor. Our kids (and us) learnt so much today. Highly recommend doing one of the bike tours. Ask for Eric. He’s a legend!

This was an excellent experience with Niall who is a funny, patient and knowledgeable local. He’s a native English speaker which came in handy not just for the tour but also helping me with many of my random curious questions … not a lot of people speak English. The bike tour was the perfect way to see the city and sights. I’m not the best cyclist but Niall always made sure I knew where we were going, and I felt safe the whole time. We covered more sights than we ever could by foot or even by taxi since going by bike is how the locals do it. Cute little streets and on a hot day the breeze on the bike keeps you cool. Thanks Niall !!!🦋

Absolutely first class, we have been on a lot of tours around the world and this is up there with the best. Niall was the pefect guide, friendly, knowlegable and understanding of our delicate condition (self inflicted). We went to places that we would have never have seen otherwise, incuding coffee shop and a fantastic local cafe for lunch.

If you do one thing when in Kyoto make sure it's the Kyoto Fun bike tour

thanks again Niall
