Incredible experience in Kyoto. Thank you Yuta

Our family (10 year old and 8 year old) had a truly unforgettable experience in Kyoto with Yuta. He had great communication leading up to the day and was punctual on arrival. He showed us all the great sights and was very knowledgeable. He was also flexible in the agenda when we wanted to stop for snacks and photos. The family shots that he took on the way were a real highlight as well. My kids had a ball and made a friend in Yuta. As well as talking through all the history of Kyoto he was also able to talk with the kids about things they were interested in too. Highly recommended. Thanks Yuta for an amazing day

Davidanna A.

Dear David, Thank you so much for joining my tour! You and your family were so warmhearted and you made me feel like guiding friends around Kyoto. I had a lot of fun with your adorable kids and it makes me happy that you enjoyed the day. Seeing Fushimi Inari with you in the evening was fantastic! I wish I could have stayed longer at the Tempura Restaurant with you. I also hope you had a great time the next day too :) Best regards, Yuta
