    We toured in 7 hours full Kyoto, she is very knowledgeable about the city, she is so kind with the kids and helped us alot , really we couldn’t have done all those attractions without her, she even managed to get a taxi for full day with much less than day rates and that is definitely a bonus when having such a guide. Thanks alot Ai for this memorable day in Kyoto, it was really amazing
