“ The best day of our Japan trip! ”

Our tour of Kyoto with Kaori was amazing from start to finish. During the planning, she was super responsive and full of ideas, which was especially helpful since we didn't know much about the area at all. During the tour, she took us to a lot of very unique spots and had a ton of insider knowledge on everything from coffee to shrines to grilled sparrow and was totally flexible in response to our needs. We had so much fun exploring the area with Kaori, and she was great at answering our never ending questions about not only Kyoto, but other areas of Japan and Japanese culture. She made navigating the intricacies of the train system effortless during our tour and got us quickly and efficiently from place to place such that we barely even noticed the travel. Finally, I had told Kaori that I wanted to surprise my girlfriend with a proposal towards the end of our tour, and she was incredibly helpful in bringing us to some beautiful and less populated areas for a truly memorable experience. Overall, our time with Kaori was the highlight of our trip and felt much more like spending the day with a friend (who knows everything about Japan), rather than going on a regular walking tour. It made for an unforgettable day (even if you don't consider the proposal), and we only wish we had made more time in our trip for Kyoto and Kaori!
