Best of Kyoto Private Taxi Tour from Osaka City or Osaka Port

Duration: 6 - 9 hour(s)
Available: Daily
Pick-up: Available
Inclusions: CHUBB Insurance / Highway toll fees between Kyoto and Osaka / English-speaking driver

We took part in the tour with 6 persons. It was fruitful experience to visit 5 famous places in Kyoto from/to Osaka within a day! Guide/Driver knew history about all places we visited and explained kindly with fluent English. Of course, the car had superior seats to be relaxed. We canceled to visit Kiyomizu Temple and added to visit Uji Byodoin Temple and Japanese Sake Factory. There were many places to take beautiful photos like Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kinkakuji, and Bamboo forest in Arashiyama. Not only enjoying senaries, satisfied with tasty Japanese Sake and delicious Japanese food! Especially, Sake Factory was amazing that we tried many kinds of expensive/sotisficated sake by 1$(JPY100)/1sip! We strongly recommend visiting Kyoto even from/to Osaka (not far away), and chartering taxi (not using public transportation) to visit famous places efficiently! We really thank our driver for the best memory/experience during our stay in Japan! Regards,
