“ On and off the grid with character! ”

We are mum, dad and son of 23 who booked Richard for a day in Kyote. I wanted a mix of history, culture, food and drink, we had all of those packed into an entertaining day. Richard's modern take on history and culture was both light and accessible, his explanation of events and places was fun and energised. The food and drink tour of the market was great fun and my particular highlight was a vist to a small side street restaurant where an 84 year old former Geisha was now using her culinary talents as well as her intellectual ones to entertain. We loved our day and thanks for the additional retaurant tips Richard, we followed those up the day after!

Richard:

Thank you Virginia for the day and I am sooooooo happy you guys had a good time. I hope I was able to convey Japan overall in one day and I thank you for allowing me to drag you around Kyoto!! Please come again to Kyoto and I hope you have safe travels until then!! Kind regards, Richard
