“ Kyoto calling! We want to go back, there is so much to do and 2.5 days was just not enough. ”

RIck was wonderful, patient, kind, soft-spoken, yet definitive in his plans for our days spent together. I must say that he handled a mom and her men child(s) extremely well, especially my special angel man child who kept up with us but made it a little tricky at times. Rick did not judge, he jumped in and assisted when needed, he took his time with us and made sure we were all happy, enjoying the areas, and best of all educating us! We learned a great deal about Kyoto and other Japanese areas and their traditions. Rick, we would find you again for the parts of Kyoto we did not see, but for 2.5 days...you did pretty darn well san. Thank you for the pictures of the tea ceremony, treasures thy are.

Rick:

Dear Angela, Thank you very much for the nice review! I am so glad that you enjoyed Kyoto for 2.5 days with me and want to come back. I also had a nice time with your and your nice sons going to tea ceremony, cooking class and some sites and so on. I hope I can guide you again when you come back and I am sure to take you to the sites you did not see! Best regards, Rick
