My Favorite Golden Route: Kyoto One-day Tour

Kyoto
8 hours

Great experience seeing Kyoto

Yoshi is amazing! I am not sure I have enough space to describe how great our time and tour was, but I am going to try! He picked us up at Kyoto station and proceeded to spend the day with us showing us the famous temples of Kyoto. Along the way we ate awesome food and learned so much about the beautiful area. Yoshi speaks great English and is so knowledgeable. At the end of our tour, he took us to this amazing Yakitori spot in the station; it was literally some of the best food we ate in our time in Japan. I am so thankful for his kindness, he really set the tone for our time in Japan and we loved the day we spent with him. He is also really great at photos, so make sure you ask him to capture memories for you! Thank you, Yoshi!

Natalie N.

Hi Natalie. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment on my tour in Kyoto. I am very pleased to learn that you loved the photos I took and the dishes of Yakitori restaurant. I hope our paths will cross again in the near future. I wish you good health and happiness. Yoshie

My Favorite Golden Route: Kyoto One-day Tour

Kyoto
8 hours

Combination of history, wits and story telling

Yoshihisa was an excellent guide. His 'My Favorite Golden Route' was a perfect way to see Kyoto and understand it's history. Our day was meaningful history, interesting stories, magnificent scenery, Japanese puns, and even poetry. Yoshihsha showed us few hidden gems of Kyoto and his enthusiasm and energy is palpable. I would highly recommend hiring him as a tour guide.

Natasha C.

Hi Natasha. Thank you so much for your wonderful review for my tour in Kyoto. I also had a pleasant time, guiding and talking with you three. I hope you will return home safely with lots of good memories of Japan. Ichigo Ichie The best of luck! Yoshie

Excellent Guide

All 4 of the guides we use for competent, but Yoshi stood out as the best. His English skills were good, he was very pleasant to be with, he used time very efficiently, he had a tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm, gave us tips on places we planned visit on our own and even presented us with a small gift. But most importantly and what set him apart from the other guides is that he provided a lot of information about the sites you would not get from guidebooks and websites. I have the same suggestion as it relates to all of our Japan guides. They will naturally take you to lunch at places that are in the path of the tour, are very inexpensive and have mediocre food - because the fee does no cover the guide's lunch. If the food matters to you you, and if you are going to pay for the guide's lunch, which we did in every case, let them know that in advance and encourage them to take you to a little nicer place.

Hi John. I really appreciate your excellent review for my tour in Kyoto. I am pleased to learn that you and your family enjoyed my tour and guiding a lot. I hope you have returned home with lots of nice memories of Japan. I wish you the best luck and good health! Yoshie
