“ BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER ”

Rick is beyond excellent! My friend and I both agreed - he is the best tour guide we have ever had! He went above and beyond for us!! We loved having him as our guide and appreciated the insight he offered at each site along the way. He helped us tremendously with navigating around Kyoto. He is beyond kind and such a gentleman - carrying my suitcase throughout the station for me - and that's just a small fragment of the kindness he showed!! Rick's English was very good and he understood everything we said which can't be said of the other tour guides we worked with. Rick was truly the best in every way!!! If you need a tour guide definitely book Rick!!
