Things to know


    Alex was an incredible guide! We had a wonderful time exploring Nara and learning about Japanese culture. Alex was patient enough to wait for us arriving quite late due to a mix-up in my notes. Such an amazing day! Highly recommend this tour and Alex!

    Our experience with Alex was wonderful: we spent a day across Nara. We learned a lot not only about the main attractions visited but also about Buddhism and Shintoism culture overall, which gave us more context for previous and future experience across the beautiful Japan.
