Kyoto Tour Reviews

Our Kyoto adventure with Yuki

Going to Japan without knowing the language seemed intimidating. My daughter and I were fortunate enough to place our Kyoto adventure in Yuki’s hands! We shared the sights we wanted to see, the food we wanted to try, and the souvenirs we wanted to buy. Yuki did the rest, planning the restaurants, shops, and sites into an awesome weeklong adventure. We used public transportation - trains, buses, trollies – with Yuki timing the schedule to perfection. Yuki speaks excellent English, and is a wonderful gentleman/guide. I would definitely recommend his services.
