“ 5 hours of charming insight, knowledge and efficiency that brought Kyoto to life. ”

Rick was flexible and accomodating , providing a tour that met our needs very well, adjusting the pace as we went along. Great communication beforehand. The only hiccup was due to my own confusing lack of clarity, which resulted in a nutty destination being included in the planned tour. My wife recognised this midway through and Rick very adeptly made changes and substituted a fantastically explained visit to Koji-ji Castle. Great spoken and written English. Highly recommended.


Dear Leo, Thank you very much for your nice review! It was my pleasure and I had a nice time talking with you walking through the Philosopfer's path, Gion area and so on. There was no problem to change the plan and I am glad that you all enjoyed the castle at the end of the tour. I hope you will come back to Kyoto someday in future. Best regards, Rick
