“ Exceeded expectations! ”

Richard could not have been a more gracious guide on our first visit to Kyoto. He not only impressed me with his knowledge and passion of Japanese history and culture but he won the hearts of my two teenagers with his charismatic personality! We truly enjoyed seeing the beautiful autumn leaves, tasting the unique flavors of the region and learning the uniqueness of the countries culture alongside our wonderful guide, Thank you for an amazing day!!

Richard:

You and your kids were amazing. They are open-minded, fun and get my jokes (most importantly) LOL. I hope you took home some great memories and please thank Fin and Emma for trying things they were not comfortable with (HA HA)!!!! A little rain at the end didn't damper our spirits either! Please be safe and if you need anything, please let me know! Kind regards, Richard
