The Path Less Traveled (Kyoto Full-Day)

Kyoto
8 hours

Everyone who comes to Kyoto visits the same old sites. They are noisy, crowded, and very touristic. But in a town whose history spans over 1, 300 years, there are far more than just the "Top 10" that are worth visiting! Quiet Zen gardens, antique browsing, a traditional lunch, sweets, an art museum and 1,001 Golden Buddha statues. This tour will introduce you to a world far away from the busy tourist sites where we will spend peaceful moments getting to know the true nature of Kyoto.
