4 ladies from the United States spent 2 marvelous days with our very knowledgeable guide Ahmed. He arranged an itinerary for us that allowed us to see just what we wanted in the short time allowed. He gave us great insight in excellent English, allowed for each of our individual personalities and chose a delight fun restaurant for lunch. He even did his best to navgate the torrential rain that chose to fall just the 2 days we were touring so that we were often on a bus or under shelter when the rain was the heaviest. Thank you Ahmed! We highly recommend you to other visitors to Kyoto and Nara.
