Kyoto Fall Foliage 2022

I would highly recommend expert guide Toshi. We mapped out a plan and followed it! Toshi was extremely knowledgeable on how to get to each location. We used all public transportation which was quite efficient. Be prepared to walk a lot so comfortable shoes and some stamina are required...

Dear Vincent Thank you very much for the kind review. I was much inspired by the efficiency and your sophisticated eyes for beautiful nature. Thank you for having me as your guide. Regards. Toshiyo

Knowledgeable local guide

We had a great time with Toshiyo yesterday. She is very patient and accommodating to our needs as we have a family member who has some knee issues. It's amazing watching her weave through crowds, catching the bus and local trains. Thank you, Toshiyo.

Knowledgeable and personable guide in Kyoto

Toshiyo is very knowledgeable about Kyoto. She is Kyoto native and her family lived here for many generations so she has many personal connections to the city and its history. She also designed our day in a very smart way this optimizing our time and we got to see a lot more than we expected. Great guide in Kyoto

Amazing experience in Kyoto!

It was our first time using GoWithGuide and it will not be our last time, thanks to the wonderful day we spent with Toshiyo. From the moment she met us, to taking us back to the hotel, Toshiyo was nothing but patient and accommodating. She was knowledgeable and was able to tell us all about the sights we saw. We appreciated how she planned the trip and looked into small details like where to enter the train at the platform so that it’s nearest to the exit at the stop we were alighting from. Beyond just “tour guide” stuff, it was really nice having a conversation with her about her life and her views. Toshiyo was clearly passionate about the work that she does as a guide and it was a pleasure to have met her today. Thank you once again!

Toshiyo O.

Hi Thank you very much for the wonderful review. I am very glad to meet you and your lovely children. It was a great day spending time with such a nice family. Thank you for having me as a guide. Regards. Toshiyo

KYOTO GEISHA, SHRINE & TEMPLE TOUR

Kyoto
6 hours

I pick you up @ your Hotel (or) Kyoto Station, we hit my favorite Zen Temple with an amazing history, then one of most prominent Shrines in Kyoto, then the Castle so we can see how a Shogun ran a Castle. We head to the famous Nishiki Market and I show you what are the foods you should try (with sake) and then off to eat a little Okonomiyaki and hit two Geisha (Geiko) Districts...one very hidden & unknown. Charming atmosphere throughout.
