We spent a very hot and sunny day with Hiroko touring 4 major attractions including the Golden Palace. Because we were staying in Gion, Hiroko created a thoughtful itinerary that took us to the south, west and north of Kyoto. She thoughtfully included stops in places to cool off as well as a wonderful local truly Japanese lunch spot. Hiroko was very knowledgeable and made the trip interesting and informative. She was also just a lovely person and it was a pleasure to be guided with her. I highly recommend Hiroko for a wonderful tour.
Sian, I am deeply grateful for your kind, generous and quick review. Both you and Allan are very nice, and it was all my pleasure being your guide in Kyoto. I am also glad to hear that you liked that local Japanese restaurant for lunch. I just would like to escort you to an old and authentic place, not to ones for tourists. I hope that you will visit here again, maybe with your children, in the near future. Please give my warm regards to Allan. He is such a gentleman. And, please enjoy Hokkaido! All the best, Hiroko
