Our family of 4 had a great time touring Kyoto. Hiroshi was simply great. He explained all the details and history of all the spots he took us in Kyoto. Without him, I am sure we couldn't even seen half of the places we would intended to see. He knows Kyoto in and out as he was a native of this town. His knowledge about all the tourist spot and attractions was very evident - he knows this stuff for real. He was not worried about the time, as we took more time to get lunch, stopped at every souvenir shop. He was patient with us and gave us space and privacy when needed. He is very respectful. I guarantee you won't go wrong by hiring him as your tour guide. He's the best.
