Perfect tour with awesome tour guide
Fan_of_Rome13, Apr 2019
Our tour guide who goes by nick name Mazda and our driver were awesome. They took us to about 7 different spots which were slightly apart and where it would be impossible to walk in between and train would take long. So well thought out and this nicely complemented the previous day of walking other Kyoto sites on our own. Our guide Mr. Matsuda (Mazda:) , was very informative, made it fun for the whole family. Took us to his local neighborhood Ramen restaurant and a "secret cherry blossom garden". Booking this trip was easy with great email communication about detail prior to the trip. Thank you everybody!

Best Day in Kyoto

We booked this full day tour for our large extended family. We were able to customize our tour destinations since we had been to Kyoto before. We were able to travel in comfort and our tour guide Kikuko was excellent! She was so knowledgeable, organized and kind. We learned so much! This tour exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend!
