Amazing city and tour guide!

Hiro was an amazing tour guide! Kyoto is a beautiful place, but without Hiro we wouldn’t have seen as much of it. He was very knowledgeable and very energetic. We packed a lot into a day, and came back exhausted, but enjoyed it very much. I’m glad we found Hiroshi for our visit.

Dear Michael I am grateful to you for your great review on Nov 27 one day tour in Kyoto. I was very glad to see that all of your family enjoyed visiting at Fushimi-Inari Shrine, Eikando temple and lastly Golden Pavilion, even though walking too much. Yours Nov 29 Hiroshi Y.
