Nara: Private Tour with Private Guide

1. Nara: Private Tour with Private Guide

Discover Nara on a fully customizable tour. Nara is in close proximity to Kyoto and Osaka, and its rich collection of traditional sites make it an ideal destination for a day trip from either of its larger neighbours. Start your day by meeting your guide at your hotel or chosen location, then choose sites you wish to visit depending on your interests. Example 6-hour Itinerary: Meet your guide at the designated meeting point you chose and let the tour begin. First visit Kofuku-Ji temple, a historic site that has been registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discover several designated National Treasures here including the Buddhist sculpture masterpiece, the Statue of Ashura. Next, head for Todai-Ji temple, a World Heritage Site that is Nara’s most famous landmark. Admire the statue of Kongo Rikishi at Nandaimon Gate and Japan’s largest Great Buddha statue. Stroll through Nara Park which is famous for its wild deer species. Enjoy the verdant natural setting of Nara while taking part in the popular activity of feeding the deer inside the park. Then discover Kasuga Taisha temple, another World Heritage Site with an impressive red main shrine. Explore the Kasuga-Taisha National Treasure Hall which contains valuable works of Buddhist art.

The tour was very well planned and we had plenty of time to enjoy each activity that we set out to do. The locations that the bus took us to were convenient and easy to return to after each outing had finished, a very good way to experience some of the culture of Kyoto and Nara in a short amount of time

The guide was very fluent in English. She was very helpful and cheerful too. The tour covered many places in one day. Although each place was a short visit but enjoyable.

Very well organized in my opinion the most important places were visited (golden pavilion, bamboo garden, Fushimi Inari-Taisha, Nara). I can only recommend

We, adults and kids, had a great day with Yen, she was very informative, and gave us valuable information. The lunch was super cool!

Amazing sights and experiences, Adrian was funny and knowledgeable, overall an excellent day
