“ Excellent management of our tour ”

Rick was an excellent manager of our 1 1/2 day tour of Kyoto and Nara. Starting with the Imperial palace and then shopping for porcelain in the rain he was they key to finding our vase finishing with a lovely walk through a traditional neighborhood.Nara was also fascinating with Rick providing many good suggestions and travel short cuts we would have never figured out. Thanks for the garden tour as well. A positive upbeat personality.


Dear Jim, Thank you very much for your nice review! I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour for two days and it was my pleasure to help your wife finding the nice porcelain in Kiyomizu area. In Nara, I am glad you enjoyed the deer, lanterns, museum, garden and so on though it was a rainy day. I hope you will enjoy Kanazawa and Nagano, too. Please keep nice memories and I hope you will come back to Japan in future. Best regards, Rick
