Private chauffeured tour in Kyoto with top-class service
With MK, you can tour around Kyoto stress-free and see incredible sightseeing spots with a private chauffeur who is very knowledgeable about the city. There are drivers who can speak English, Chinese, Korean or French guiding customers in a very informative way. MK was selected as one of the best companies in the hospitality industry in Japan for its exceptionally high standard of service. For the tour, you are free to choose the starting time, pick-up location, and drop-off location within Kyoto for your convenience. Just get ready to tour Kyoto and have some fun!
There are several model courses that include must-see spots of Kyoto like famous Kiyomizu Temple, To-ji Temple, and Fushimi Inari Shrine. Of course you are free to choose wherever you would like to go and plan your own tour. When making a reservation, let them know whether you would like to go on MK’s model course tour or your own planned tour. (Mixing a model course tour and adding other places you want to visit may also be possible.) The private tour is absolutely stress-free because there’s no need to keep track of transportation time, to think about how long to stay in one spot, or figuring out how to get to places.
Talk to the Driver and Find off the Beaten Places
The drivers at MK can make your Kyoto tour more exciting because they have outstanding knowledge of the city. They undergo extremely strict training courses in tourism and hospitality within the company. You will be learning the history of the world heritage listed temples/shrines and their structure, as well as finding off the beaten places only locals would know. You could perhaps ask for suggestions on what to get for souvenirs. Just talk to the drivers and learn more about the city that you won’t get from travel books.
If you wish to make a reservation for a private chauffeur-guided tour, check out their website for information on model tours and pricing.
