    Great guide.

    We were not disappointed. As we arrived japan had a cold snap which delayed the cherry blossoms in most areas we travelled to. The areas we were taken to were beautiful as some trees were in full blossom and some in partial. Our guide, Yoichiro who is a lovely patient individual, was informative of the area and the culture. And if he couldn't answer a question he sent us an email to give us links to other places that we were interested in. In addition, after the tour had finished Yoichiro guided us to our next destination.
    Thanks again Yoichiro

    amazing experience in a beautiful city

    We had a very nice day in Kyoto with our guide Kazoo Sumi. He was really professional, patience and with a lot of experience. He brings us all over the city and he choose for us a very good and beautiful restaurant: it was traditional restaurant not for tourists with just a few spots. The food was very good. He also bring us to see all the spots for the cherry blossom and he explained us not just the story of Kyoto but the Japanese culture. We loved the tour and we highly recommend it.


    We had an amazing host and a wonderful time! It was superb! The sakura was so beautiful especially the gardens and Philosopher's Path. We enjoyed exploring the tiny streets of Kyoto. Amazing!
