1.About Good Samaritan Club

Good Samaritan Club, “GSC”, is a group of university students provides volunteer guides for foreign tourists, “guest(s)”, in Kyoto, Japan.


-GSC makes no claims or guarantees as to the qualifications or experience of its guides.

-Typically, GSC offers ONE guide per a group of guests. If you are 7 and more members, GSC can offer additional guides.

-Usually, you will have one guide for one group. However, while our members are busy for some reasons(exams, classwork, or homework etc…), you may have two guides (one for morning, and another for afternoon).

-There are no predetermined routes of destinations. When your guide is found, please consult him/her about your tour.

-GSC guides will do their best to suggest custom itineraries based upon the needs of each group of guests.

-Once we have matched you with a guide, we will inform you of this, generally one week before the intended tour date.

In the event that an email informing you of your assigned tour guide does not come a week in advance of your intended tour date, then there is a strong possibility that we will not be able to guide you on that day.

We are all students, so please understand that completing school work is also our priority.

On every first Saturday of the month, we have to finish our services by 3 p.m. because of the meeting in the evening.


While GSC guide services are free of charge, guests are responsible for the following expenses:

-TRAVEL EXPENSES INCURRED BY THE GUIDE while conducting a tour for the guests. These include any and all public transportation fees incurred after meeting the guest at the appointed meeting place

-ADMISSION FEES to museums, temples, shrines, events etc. incurred by the guide while providing guide services

-MEALS eaten by the guide while providing services to the guest(s)

-EXPENSES for any additional guides as well
