Kyoto Tour Reviews

Great experience

Yoshie was great. I spent 2 days with him, one in Osaka and one in Kyoto. He customized a tour for my wife and I. We enjoyed spending time with him and he customized the trip for us. We told him that we love great food, see great sites, and wanted to experience the culture. He did a great job with all of that. Also, the first time we met was in Osaka and he gave me very clear and easy directions to meet him.

We really appreciate you and hope to come back someday and visit again!

Excellent Tour

We had a great tour and saw many sites in Kyoto very quickly. It was an excellent mix of history and local culture. As a wonderful treat Yoshi gave us each origami items that were made by hand by his wife. Our biggest compliment was that Yoshi kindly adjusted the tour to fit a what our family needed and even made day of adjustments when we needed to further tweak our plans.
