“ Incredible 2 Days in Kyoto with Richard! ”

5 Stars seems wholly inadequate to rate our experience with Richard these past two days. We had an absolutely unbelievable experience. Our first day included several shrines, feeding monkeys at a monkey park up a mountain, a delicious authentic Japanese lunch at a private home and the greatest walk through a food market of my life (stopping to taste the best roasted duck, fatty tuna, sake, wagyu beef and more) and much more! Our second day was highlighted by a castle tour and a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. I have been on private tours around the world and Richard ranks among the absolute best guides I have ever had. He kept my family of five engaged and having fun the entire time. He is a consummate storyteller as well as a food and drink connoisseur which was so appreciated by all of us! He has obviously found his calling and we feel fortunate to have spent two wonderful days with him as our guide. Domo Arigato Richard!

Richard:

Thank you so much Todd, for the kind words. I am sorry I had to drag you everywhere and I hope my pace was not too bad. But strategically placed sake spots assisted us along the way and we were even able to avoid your 4 o'clock slump!!!! LOL You have an amazing family and I was honored to be able to take them around. If you ever need me for anything, never hesitate and let me know. Have fun in the country! I'm a little jealous. Kind regards Richard
