“ Kyoto with friendly guide ”

Kaori is amazing and very friendly guide who takes effort to know your likes and interest to suggest appropriate itinerary. In the interest of covering the maximum of Kyoto we started the tour very early in the morning. Due to starting the tour very early we covered some of the iconic shrines and temples with no tourist in those shrines; felt like we had the whole place to ourselves and got some amazing ******* photo shots with no other tourist in frame. Kaori is very knowledgeable about all the different spots and commute options in Kyoto that helped me to see most of the sites without wasting much time traveling between sites and she timed it to avoid all the bus tourist crowds. Since I am a vegetarian, she found some amazing restaurants for breakfast and lunch. Kaori is also an amazing photographer who helped me take some amazing shots of Kyoto. Kaori went over and beyond to be my personal shopper to help me pick a list of cosmetics (e.g. SK 2) that my wife had asked me to get from Japan. Kaori’s energy and enthusiasm are very infectious, and I will again use her services when I return to Kyoto-Osaka with my family.
