    Walking the streets of Kyoto with Hide as our guide was a wonderful experience. We learned so much about the history and culture of Japan and appreciated how he catered the tour to our specific interests. Wish we had more time with him! A personalized tour makes the visit more meaningful and memorable. Recommended to all first timers to Japan.

    We had just one day in Kyoto so we decided to hire a guide in order to make the most of it. Nehal was very good in explaining everything, he was very calm and kind. He took us around Kyoto to see Shrines and Temples. We walked through the old Kyoto and the geisha district. We were with our kids who got a bit tired so he adapted to our needs and suggested somewhere to sit and have a drink. It’s really a personalized experience so you can choose what you want to see , what you want to avoid and how quick you want to walk. We were all really happy that we got to see so many things in a few hours. I highly recommend it .

    Milo was an excellent guide for our needs. The fact that he's European doesn't feel as a limit but probably an advantage since it's easier for him to relate with our perspective. He clearly did his homework and studied thoroughly the history of Kyoto - so you're not missing that either.
