“ Kyoto and Osaka ”

Richard was the best. We had a 6 year old and he helped tailor the event to accommodate her. Very knowledgeable about things. He also gave logistic suggestions (e.g. ICE card). He had ideas of what to do, but was able to make on the fly changes rather easily. Make sure he takes you to the food markets. He knows the right places to eat and tries to keep the price down by picking high value food items. Even though he is anglo-American, his knowledge of Japan makes you feel he has lived in Japan all his life

Richard:

Hey Jim, thank you for your kind words and the two days you booked with me. You and your family were the best. I hope Arielle takes care of those chopsticks! LOL Please tell Amy thank you and if you guys ever need assistance again, please let me know. Hope you learned a lot on my tour, hope to see you again. Kind regards, Richard
