Great guide, totally worth it!!

Hiro-san was an amazing guide for our 2 day Kyoto trip! He was very knowledgeable of all the sites we visited, and thanks to his smart planning, we were able to see quite a lot in our short stay. Unfortunately during our trip we encountered a few setbacks due to weather (trains were stalled, taxis were full, etc) but Hiro-san rolled with the punches, and always found a different route to get us back on track. He kept the guide very exciting, offering pop quizzes at many of our stops with a prize of candies for the winner at the end of the day. Our time with Hiro-san was very fast-paced, but if we needed to stop to buy something or grab a snack, etc Hiro-san always happily obliged and adjusted our schedule as needed. Overall, we had an excellent time with Hiro-san, and if you ever find yourself looking for a guide in Kyoto, I highly recommend his services.

Bring your walking shoes

Packed as much sightseeing as possible on foot in Kyoto! Climbed a small mountain trail that wound through an ever-expanding shrine dating back to the 8th century. Saw Nin-Jo samurai palace and walked through the old town in the evening; caught a glimpse of geisha/maiko walking to their clients. Saw ancient pagodas and ate Udon and soba noodles that tasted fantastic on a chilly day. We walked over 10 miles that day and our guide seemed to never tire! Got lots of pictures of iconic sites!
