“ Excellent Kyoto tour! ”
We are a family of 4, with 2 teenagers on our first trip to Japan. Keiko was our guide in Kyoto for 2 days, hoping to see as much as we can. And we did! She met us at our hotel and our tour began. Over two days we saw the Ryoanji Temple, Kinkakuji Temple, Arashiyama area with Tenryuji Temple and Bamboo forest, Nijo Castle, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Nishiki Food Market and Gion area, including a tea ceremony experience. With each site/area, she was very helpful in explaining the history behind each place. It made visiting much more enjoyable and we were able to appreciate it better. Keiko also helped us go shopping, finding places for lunch (it was delicious) and making sure we were comfortable at all times. She was patient and ensured that we were enjoying everything. We used public transportation and mingling with local residents of Kyoto allowed us to see how they lived. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kyoto. We would highly recommend Keiko as a guide in Kyoto!
