No, our tours are completely private and designed for you and your group.

No, the guide will cover their own transportation, admission, and food/drinks while on tour.

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pick-ups or drop-offs directly at the airport.  This is because airport logistics and potential delays can impact the start and end times of our tours, which are designed for guests staying in Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, and other central locations. We recommend using public transportation or taxis to get from the airport to your hotel and vice versa.

No, but we’ll help you choose the most affordable public transportation options that local people use. Each tour description includes an estimate of those additional costs.
