Great time seeing the highlights of Kyoto

Ahmed was Wonderful! We only had a very short time in Kyoto but wanted to see as much as possible. My husband had a leg injury and has been difficult for him to walk. Ahmed arranged for us to have a taxi all day which picked us up at the hotel. We were able to see the golden temple(only takes cash) Nijojocho-jo castle and Fushimi-Ku Imari Trisha. . Plus a really good lunch. Ahmed is very knowledgeable about Kyoto as he has lived here 5 years. He made the entire trip great! We would highly recommend using him as a guide! -note- have cash for the taxi driver also to credit cards. Japan is a big cash using country.

Day tour of Kyoto

We found Ahmed to be very informative and worked the itinerary to fit in with what we wanted. There were no communication problems whatsoever except that we assumed the tour would finish at the starting point but we obviously did not read his itinerary properly and we had to find our own way back to the station when the tour ended.

Ahmed A.

Dear Rosalie, I was very happy to tour with you and lovely family, and I am glad you enjoyed it. I am deeply sorry for the end up point, I thought you would do it comfortably, If I knew you want me to end it up in the station then I would definitely join you.Anyway thanks a lot again and wishing to see you again in Kyoto. Come in 2020

A truly special Kyoto experience

Our day tour with Ahmed was fantastic! He is a great English guide and very knowledgeable.He was very patient and accommodating with me( because of my knee injury) He recommended a van rental for the day so that we can see more sights with the minimum walking.We learned so much about the city , sights and its people. Ahmed took great care with explanations of their beliefs and practices .He also recommended nice food spots( and what to eat) afterwards. He further more, made a reservation for us at a restaurant that we wanted to visit the next day . We asked him tips for our Osaka day trip afterwards and he let us know where we could go to see sakura trees in bloom before we left. Ahmed really walked the extra mile. We would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a truly special Kyoto experience. Thanks Ahmed!

Dear Gina, It was a true pleasure for me to tour with you and lovely family. I am very happy I helped you the way you wanted and I wish to see you again in Kyoto. God bless you all
