“ Fantastic and Fun ”

Richard’s knowledge of Japan, temples and shrines, and history and culture combined with his gregarious personality made for a truly memorable day visiting several sites in Kyoto. Richard explained and pointed out so many things that helped us appreciate what we were seeing. We three couples enjoy food. His familiarity with its vendors and foods made our time at Nishiki Market, trying many different items including sake that Richard selected, a marvellous adventure. We enjoyed experiences that would have been impossible without this guide. What a great time! Highly recommend.

Richard:

Thank you Linda. Your family was a lot of fun and I hope the boys are alright with the sake drinking we did... LOL The Melon Bread stands have no chance against you guys!!! Have to make a business plan once you get back home!! Please let me know if there is ever anything else I can do for you! Kind regards, Richard
