“ Excellent day-trip from Tokyo ”

I booked a six-hour guided tour last minute (one day out). Ahmed was extremely quick to respond and excellent with communicating the plan. He met me at Kyoto Station and we toured using the bus, which was great. He also picked a great place for lunch. I have to say it really was like having a friend show you around their city. I received great insight into the culture because he is studying there. Lastly, he was kind enough to help map out my remaining three hours in the city. I would highly recommend you book with Ahmed!


Dear Derek, Thanks a lot for your nice review. I really had so much fun that day and I wish to meet you again here. May God bless you and family.

“ 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!
