“ Quick Kyoto! ”

I was fortunately able to book Ahmed at the last minute for a day around Kyoto. It really helped me find my directional sense of the city & it was great to just take everything in visually while he led the way. Otherwise I think I’d still be lost wandering around! We went to a few beautiful temples, window shopped, & finished with a lovely dinner near my hotel in the Gion. Ahmed let me set the pace & choose what I wanted to see & he made suggestions that helped me decide. He was also very good at getting me to stand for pics with my cell phone! I wanted to taxi instead of train, so we did that, too! Very easy! Would highly recommend! Thank you, Ahmed! Cannot wait to visit Kyoto again!

“ Ahmed made the trip to Kyoto and Nara even better! ”

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.
