“ Fascinating and VERY enjoyable day in Kyoto with Richard ”

A fun filled/ educational/culturally enlightening day was had by my wife, son, and myself. Richard has a great personality, and really goes the "extra mile" to give his clients a great, unique experience, customized to any specific likes/dislikes. I truly feel that you would get so much more out of your visit with Richard than most other guides, especially if you are English speaking, due to his tremendous knowledge, but also playful and engaging way that he presents it.

Richard:

Thank you Robert. I am happy that you guys had a great time despite the drizzle and I commend you on sitting at an authentic Japanese table for okonomiyaki!!! LOL!! I hope we blended the 'quite' with the crowds! Take care and let me know if there is anything else I can do for you guys!!! Kind regards Richard
