Kyoto day visit

Toshi was well on time and gave us useful information about the visited points. We could only cover 4 points due to widespread location of the points in the itenary. Toshi was too quick to navigate and felt she was in a rush to complete the tour. The tour lacked planning overall that didn’t allow to complete the intended points.

Usha P.

Thank you for the kind review. I was happy that we could visit all the scattered places you mentioned with public transportation and walking only.

Delightful day in Kyoto with Toshiyo

Toshiyo skillfully took us around Kyoto’s transport system which ensured we were not daunted without her on the following few days. We visited the Kiyomizu-sera temple, the Sanjusangen-do Buddhist temple and the Motorikyu Nijo castle. Her depth of knowledge about the history and tradition of these sites were very interesting and enhanced our experience greatly. Toshiyo’s English is perfect to the Brit abroad and she was easy to understand even in crowded locations. We will treasure our day with her forever.

Dear Ian san, Thank you very much for having me as your guide and kind review. I really hope you enjoyed Kyoto and Japan. Listening to your talk was very interesting and rewarding.. Thank you. Regards. Toshiyo
