“ Absolutely Wonderful ”

Richard's tour was a highlight of my trip to Japan. He was kind enough to show me around Kyoto on New Year's Day, a day when many things are closed in Japan, but Richard still turned it into an enlightening and fun tour. We visited temples and shrines, but rather than just visiting them for the sake of seeing them, Richard explained the significance being each one, which really gave me a deeper appreciation for their importance. We also ate some great food along the way, drank fantastic sake, and had some great conversations. I cannot recommend Richard highly enough. If you really want to appreciate the Osaka/ Kyoto area, I highly recommend you book Richard. Thanks for a wonderful tour, Richard!

Richard:

Dylan, thank you so much. Like I told you, I usually don't do tours on that day but I had a wonderful day with you and I am glad I got to start off my new year that way. I wish you so much good luck I hope you'll be able to return someday!!! Until then take care, Richard
