Overall a good experience, the sights were beautiful and the guide to and from Osaka was wonderful! She gave me insights on the areas between Kyoto Nara and Osaka and even some tidbits on the history and culture. The guides at the sites really didn't give more information than was on the signs, but with no time to read any of them. I wish I could rate them separately and there was more time at each site.

This has to be one of the fastest tours to be part of- great if you want to see many things in a short time but it's SO expensive for what it is. There's no reason for it to cost so much more than the others on offer. For starters you have to literally take a public train with everybody else, which you could've booked yourself rather than pay them a premium to do so. There is basically no chance of a seat and you are standing the whole time. You get around 45min per attraction, no water provided considering it is a whole day trip and because the groups are so large, if anybody is running late you get pushed along even faster through the rest of it. The people running it are nice- apart from that you can basically organise this yourself and do it cheaper/at your own leisure. Lunch is pretty awful too. This is far too overpriced a tour.
