We enjoyed a great tour with 6 other cyclists, our guide Kohei & Shaun the trainee guide. The tour covered a lot of ground but we managed to enjoy the sights and learn a lot about Japanese culture and history along the way. Thank you...More
Pedal off the beaten path in Kyoto on this half-day bike tour. You’ll get an overview of the city, while leaving the navigation to your guide. With a maximum of nine people in your group, you'll have plenty of opportunity for questions as you explore the former imperial city, criss-crossed with back alleys and hidden paths. Travel light, as you’ll be provided with a bicycle and helmet.
Once you’re comfortable, pedal off into the former imperial city. Take in the scenery while traveling like a local with your guide in the lead.
Head to Kamo River for panoramic downtown views, stopping at the sacred gate of the Heian-Jingu Shrine for some photos. Hear about the history of replicated structures from Kyoto’s past.
Next, wind through alleys and across canals to Nanzenji Temple, where you’ll learn about classic Zen Buddhist architecture. Your last stop is at the Path of Philosophy, lined with hundreds of iconic cherry trees.
At the tour’s conclusion, return to Kyoto Station.
