Wonderful morning--Fun and Informative

Our guide, who spoke perfect English, was both knowledgeable and charming and did her job with enthusiasm and skill. We would never otherwise have seen the places that she showed us, nor would we have understood what we were seeing without her explanations. She was keen to tailor her tour to what the people in the group most wanted to see and learn. This tour covers places other, more general tours, do not. Highly recommend. You will really enjoy meeting this guide and learning what she can teach and show you.

Thank you for joining the Kyoto Kitano Walking tour and leaving your warm message. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed walking the area and found deep Kyoto with Mayu. We would be more than happy to show you around other areas if you could make it back to Kyoto again in near future. Thanks again for visiting us in Kyoto.
