Comparation between guides groups at Kyoto

Good Samaritan Club

GOOD SAMARITAN CLUB

Good Samaritan Club is a volunteer guide organization. We have about 100 students who had the basic guide training. The guide provided by us is usually full-day or half-day tour, and the plan will be arranged with your request.

We basically accept any types of group. But if it is hard to conduct the tour with one single guide, several members would accompany you.

Support tour at all around Kyoto city

You can book a guide anytime.

Our guide is absolutely free. But we are afraid that we have to ask you to pay for necessary expenses during the guide (transportation fare, meal, entrance fee etc.) for us too.

Request a guide from our Web site. You will get a mail when someone who meets your request date is found. The results will be known at least on the day you designate as the limit.

In 2016, about 50% of groups successfully got a guide.

Kyoto Greeters

KYOTO GREETERS

Kyoto Greeters is the volunteer organization, which offers you a "greet." Greet is not a guide, rather we spend several hours with you as a "local friend," following your plan.

We accept up to 6 people in one greet. We might take one more greeter in addition to the main greeter for you.

You can book a greeter anytime

Our guide is absolutely free. But we are afraid that we have to ask you to pay for necessary expenses during the guide (transportation fare, meal, entrance fee etc.) for us too. If we take one more greeter, we kindly ask you to pay the necessary expense for him/her also. Thank you for your understanding.

Request a guide from our Web site. You will get a mail when someone who meets your request date is found. If you don't get notification from greeters 3 days before of your requested date, we’d like you to understand that we cannot find any greeters to be assigned to you.

Since we are a newly built organization, the rate to get a guide is not defined(30 to 70%). We are now recruiting more members to make this rate higher.
