Caring and great tour guide
Goto was a very caring and accommodating tour guide. The suggested itineraries were good! Kyoto is a great place to visit with lots of shrines and temples, Goto made sure we have the best vantage points and explained the history of each place. For those who haven't been to Kyoto, public transport can be quite daunting. As this is a private walking tour we get to go to these places at our leisure. We didn't waste any time trying to find our ways to these places ourselves. Goto had everything mapped out. I would highly recommend Goto. Just like the rest of Japan, there are lots of walking involved. :)
Excellent one day tour. Kazuhiko was an excellent guide and very accommodating and he puts a lot of effort in to preparation to make the tour special. We learned a lot about Shinto and Buddhism during the day and enjoyed the cultural heritage of Kyoto. During the day we saw so many amazing sites including Kinkakuji, Fushimi Inari shrine, Kiyomizu temple, Nijyo castle and Sanjyusangen-do hall, explored the old streets of Kyoto and finished with an amazing dinner in Pontocho.
Our day trip could not have gone better. After making arrangements to meet us at a convenient location, as we were coming from Osaka - not Kyoto - our journey began. Mr Goto had a full itinerary laid out for us, along with a summary of the places that we would be visiting. At each stop, he took the time to help us understand why this location was important, and the customs and importance. He was very open to questions and adapted to small changes when needed. He was a thoughtful and considerate guide that wanted to ensure that we had a great experience. Highly recommended for anyone
