We had an interesting and productive tour with Guya. She was incredibly knowledgeable and helped us to navigate the rail system and plan our travels with her expertise. She simplified what to us was a daunting process. We appreciated all her knowledge of Japan and recommendations for restaurants and must see sights. A lovely morning!
She is the best, very knowledgeable and nice person, knows many many places from historical to modern to food and fashion.. tells stories and history about the place you visit. I really enjoyed the tour. Thank you Gulay.
Thank you so much for your review, Mr. Akram. It was a great pleasure for me to guide you :)
I truly enjoyed my Kyoto ghost tour with Gulay. She was very outgoing and knowledgeable and told the tales in an engaging manner. I recommend it to anyone looking for a spooky night in!
