Intellectually Stimulating

Craft Tabby tours are for travelers who are curious about things. We don’t just take you around places (you could do that on your own!). We give you the context and answer all your “whys”.

Very Small Group Tours

Large tour groups are no fun, especially when you’re trying to get around the narrow streets of Kyoto. Our groups are small and intimate: 2 to 8 travelers only. This way we get to interact with everyone on the tour.

No Tips and Gratuities

We do our best all the time. Plus Japan is a no-tipping country. Why should tour guides be any different?
