We arrived in Kobe on a 13 day around Japan cruise. We wanted to make the most of our time, so we wanted to find a guide who would take us to Kyoto on one day and then spend the other half day in Kobe. Maddie was the perfect choice. She picked us up at 9 AM at the port terminal and navigated through local subways and trains to get us to Kyoto in time to see four different strains, returning at 7 PM I would never have been able to see as much, in a leisurely fashion, on our own. It is not often that one can get to Kyoto to spend the day, so having Maddie was an absolute necessity. She provided excellent information on each of the sites we visited and helped us plan the itinerary from the beginning. We spent the next morning with her and Kobe before the departure of our shit. Once again, she demonstrated excellent flexibility and chose beautiful sight to see, particularly spectacular Japanese garden. Her insights about all the places we visited greatly enhance our experience.
Dear Steven, Thank you for writing a tour review. I had such an enjoyable time with you! I had been a little worried about the weather forecast before I met you, but it turned out to be nice for both days! I was especially glad we could visit Nanzenji Temple. Mari
