Great day travelling Kyoto

Eric was great and we would highly recommend him. He was always attentive, answered all our questions and provided interesting facts and insights. It was a fabulous day learning and seeing the beautiful city of Kyoto - and Eric was a huge contributing influence to our day. Thank you Eric for everything.

Mr Simon I wish to show my appreciation for your comments to the tour I also have had a good time with your family I wish if I can guide you again Stop regarding Japanese Saki, I wish to recommend you Kuobota or Hakkaizan from Niigata area If you take Japanese Saki with dinner, I recommend you Jinnai or Honjozo, which are rank of Saki. Ginko and Daiginjo ranks are better qualities but they are a little sweet Please have a nice stay in Japan Eric Tanaka

Hilights in Kyoto & Nara

We are very happy with Eric. His tour is long, started at 8.30am, with Eric meeting us at our hotel. But we visited all the places that we have always wanted to visit in Kyoto & Nara. We didnt feel rushed at all. We took a combination of subway / taxi during this tour. And had a lunch break in a food court. Eric shared a lot of info with us. Would recommend his tour! Thanks so much Eric!

kyoto highlights

It was a wonderful experience in Kyoto with Eric. He gave us abundant info. and little gems everywhere we went. He took care of our group, always looking behind to see if we were within an eye distance. He helped us with ins/outs of metro system there. I would highly recommend Eric if you ever visit Kyoto.
