It was BRILLIANT !!! Path of Philosophy was magical. The wind started and blew the Cherry Blossom petals like they were snow. A great workout fir 4 hours. Saw parts of Kyoto we would never have otherwise seen. Great tourguide Grecia. My 9 and 11 year olds kept up and loved it. Highly recommend

Brad was a great leader and we saw some beautiful things. I liked the "philosopher's path" I think it is called because you see a bunch of little houses' backyards and lots of regular people living their daily lives. We saw a wedding photo session at a shrine. If there is any drawback it is that it was about 90 degrees and humid, but I forced myself to forget that I was soaking wet with sweat and to press on!
