KYOTO - A Tailor-Made experience for you

Kyoto

Marvelous Mari!

Mari is an amazing guide. We used 5 different guides through go with guide over two weeks and Mari was our guide for Kyoto. She arranged a kimono experience, tea ceremony and shopping in Gion. Prior to our trip Mari communicated with us and confirmed our itinerary. The day of our tour she picked us up promptly at our hotel and we headed to the kimono rental. I really like the place she chose for the rental. It was very clean, the store associates were sweet and helped me pick out the right colors and accessories. After our family got dressed in kimonos we headed out into Gion and she took our pictures. She is a fabulous photographer!!! Seriously, her shots on my phone are all great. After pics we went to the tea ceremony. There were 8 of us at the ceremony, plenty of room to hear the hostess and see the demonstration. I learned a lot about the art of tea making and about matcha. We did some shopping in Gion. Mari was so patient with us as we looked in the stores. She also took us to her favorite ice cream place. I hope to return one day to Kyoto and if Mari is still giving tours I will book with her!

Brilliant guide!

Mari is the perfect guide to discover the magic of Kyoto! On two extensive half-day-tours she took us to see landmarks such as the Bamboo Forest, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Yasaka Pagoda as well as some enchanted places off the beaten track and the tourist crowds. She is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, kind and fun to be with. We had a lovely time exploring the city with her and getting a feel of it through special treats such as a tram ride, lunch in an excellent ramen restaurant or a peek into a lovely private garden. Thank you, Mari, for a delightful and memorable experience!

Siv B.

Hi Siv!! Thank you so much for sharing the great time with me too. :) The both dates were indeed excellent. I enjoyed the talks with you both, it was memorable time for me too. Thank you soooo much again! Vielen Dank! Alles Gute! :)

Arashiyama tour

Mari is a lovely woman and guide who combines the knowledge of Arashiyama with a very personal touch. We immediately felt at ease with her. She suggested to ride a bike instead of walking and it was great. You get to see so much more and besides that, it's also fun to ride the streets in this part of Kyoto. Thank you very much Mari!

Thank you Suzy and Andy! Actually I had a business trip to Hiroshima and Okayama last 2 days and I struggled with my son in this morning. I was so happy to take a bike and enjoyed off the beaten path with you two! Thanks to your smiles, I could easily forget about how tired I was! :) Thank you so much again for joining my tour. I hope you both will have a great time in Kyoto!! :) OoKini!

This tour is the one and only for you. Kyoto was an ancient capital of Japan for over 1200 years. Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it offers too much to see in one visit. Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern. The phenomenal concentration of history and legend coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life. Please tell me your interest, and I will make an itinerary exclusively for you!
