Full description
Hire a private car and driver to enjoy stress-free sightseeing in Kyoto. If you choose the full-day option, you will be able to visit 3 or 4 major sites, assuming you spend around 1-1.5 hours in each place and stop for lunch along the way.  The most popular places to visit in Kyoto are the Golden temple, Arashimaya Bamboo Forest, Nijo Castle, Kiyomizu Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Imperial Palace, Ryoanji, and the Nishiki Market.  After completing your booking, let the local partner know where you would live to visit to confirm your chosen itinerary. If you want a more local experience, you might like to add a stop at a local mall or supermarket. Here, you will be able to see what the locals like to buy and eat. Using a chauffeur service in Kyoto will make your trip more efficient and enjoyable, no matter what the season. In spring and autumn, which are the peak seasons for tourism, you will be able to avoid long waiting times for public transportation. And in summer or winter, you can avoid the extreme hot or cold weather.
