what we do.

  Kyoto is one of the most visited cities in the world, but it's also one of the most opaque.  It's not easy to see the "real" Kyoto in a city so used to welcoming tourists while keeping them at arms length.

  It takes years of experience, fluency and friendships to appreciate the Kyoto from a local perspective.  Come out on an intimate small-group tour and let us show you the best hidden bars, friendly locals and authentic cuisine that historic Kyoto has to offer!

find the hidden Kyoto.

  Your bilingual guide will take you through a selection of our favorite small bars, pubs and izakaya that you wouldn't otherwise find, and some of the best popular spots too.

  We'll start with an initial drink, followed by a delicious izakaya-style dinner.  After that we'll guide you on a backstreet walking tour, stopping for drinks at variety of small, authentic bars.  After the tour we'll introduce other great bars, late-night food spots or nightclubs to continue your night out.

  On any night of the week our tours are the key to a genuine local experience tourists normally can't enjoy.

“If you really want to get under the skin of a town - explore its backstreets. And with Peter you can really do just that. The man really knows the local norms and all of the hidden gems. A must-do in Kyoto!”
