“ 5 hour Kyoto highlight tour and optional Maiko dinner (2 hours) ”

Rick was an excellent guide, taking us to on his South course, visiting Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kiyomizu temple, Gion Walk and Maiko dinner. Rick is very knowledge and offered to take photos for us which was fantastic. Being a local he was familar with some of the quieter streets in the Gion Walk which were less crowded and pleasant to walk through and observe at a slower pace. The Maiko dinner was fantastic and well worth experiencing as taste of Japanese heritage and traditions. If you are spending a couple of days in Kyoto, we highly recommend using Rick as your tour guide - you will not be disappointed. Thanks for a great day Rick ;o)


Dear Sharon, Thank you very much for your nicest review! I am so glad to hear that you had enjoyed the tour very much. I also enjoyed the tour with you talking various things especially through the backstreet of Gion. I hope you keep the nice memories in Kyoto and will come back sometime in future. Best regards, Rick
