        Die Tour mit Harun war super. Er hat die Tour nach unserem Interesse angepasst und wir konnten genau das anschauen, was wir wollten. Er hat uns auch viel über die Gegend erzählt und uns Tipps gegeben, was wir ansonsten noch anschauen könnten, auch ausserhalb der Tour. Er hat uns immer wieder auf gute Fotospots hingewiesen und war sehr gelassen. Harun hat uns auch geholfen, uns in Kyoto etwas besser zurecht zu finden. Mit ihm haben wir verschiedene Sehenswürdigkeiten angeschaut, die wir ohne ihn vermutlich verpasst hätten. Sein Englisch war gut und wir haben uns super verstanden. Alles in allem einfach eine super geführte vierstündige Tour durch Kyoto. The tour with Harun was great. He customized the tour based on our interests and we were able to see exactly what we wanted. He also told us a lot about the area and gave us tips on what else we could see, even outside of the tour. He kept pointing out good photo spots and was very relaxed. Harun also helped us to find our way around Kyoto a little better. With him we saw various sights that we probably would have missed without him. His English was good and we got along really well. All in all, just a great four-hour guided tour of Kyoto.

        Our guide Jose David was punctual, friendly and informative. Throughout our day together we feel as if we formed a friendship with a local who knew the ins and outs of the area and who was attentive to our preferences making great suggestions. We had an absolute blast and would use Jose David on our next visit to Kyoto!
