Beautiful Kyoto story Private Sightseeing Tours

Beautiful Kyoto story

I have been a professional guide for 3 years. I know almost all famous tourist spots in Kyoto. I know many hidden places where few people know as well. For instance,Arashiyama area is one of the popular places in Kyoto, but every spots is crowded like Sibuya crossing. Some guests feel disappointed due to this. So I take them to hidden route that few people know. So many guests are impressed seeing such a beautiful and calm area. Besides, I know the fast and reasonable way using public transportation. The problem that many tourist make annoyed is how to use transportation. Even if using Google map, they take long time to choose proper vehicle because Japanese transportation system is complexed. I will make the duration of taking vehicle minimum as possible. I am talkative person and I like chatting, so you would not be bored during tour.
