Overview

This tour takes you to the two areas, Fushimi and Arashiyama. Both areas are a little away from central Kyoto and have the serene atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable. Please enjoy another Kyoto with classical boat riding, playing with monkeys, etc.

What to Expect

In the past, Fushimi area was a port facing to a large lake. Now you can enjoy riding the classical boat through the river and also enjoy visiting classical Sake brewery where you can feel the old days and even try tasting various Sake.
Arashiyama is the area where still keeps atmosphere of ancient Kyoto. In addition to the Bamboo groove walk, you can enjoy the garden of Tenryuuji temple or playing with monkeys in the monkey park.
I am sure this tour makes a memorable day in your stay in Kyoto.

“ A full day in Kyoto ”

We (four of us) spent a full day with Rick in Hakone. The day was a little rainy but the sights were fabulous. What a wonderful city. Rick was very helpful in terms of getting places quickly and efficiently as well as informing us of things we would not have otherwise been able to find out. I would recommend using Rick to anyone visiting Kyoto or Osaka.

Rick:

Dear Greg, Thank you very much for your nice review. I 'm very glad that you found Kyoto a wonderful city. I also had a very nice time talking and walking with you all. All of you are so nice people and that helped me a lot in touring Kyoto. I hope you will have nice time during the rest of your stay in Japan and hope I can see you again in future. Best regards, Rick

“ Kyoto in one day ”

Rick is a very knowledgeable guide who showed a great deal of flexibility during the full day we had with him. We thoroughly enjoyed the time with him who put together a very intersting "mixed bag" for us. If we came to Kyoto again we would definitely ask for his services again. In the meantime we can only recommend friends to book him in case they travel to Kyoto. Thank you very much Rick for a wonderful day !! Britta & Carsten from Germany

Rick:

Dear Britta & Carsten, Thank you very much for your nice comment ! I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour with me. I also enjoyed the conversation with both of you and it is my good memory to have had the Maccha tea, lunch, walking Nishiki market and so on. Also I was glad to know that Carsten is a marathon runner! I really hope Carsten will run successfully in Tokyo marathon on Sunday. I hope I will be able to see you again in near future. Best regards, Rick

“ Great Day in Kyoto ”

We had a very informative and wonderful day with Rick in Kyoto. He showed us great sites, which were "off the beaten track" and we absolutely loved it. He is very well informed and has great historical knowledge about his city. His English is fantastic and we can greatly recommend him as a tour guide.

Rick:

Dear Ferdinand, Thank you very much for your nice review! I am very glad that you loved the "off the beaten track" sites. I also enjoyed the nice conversation with both of you and had a great day. I hope you had successfully saw Maiko or Geiko on the next day. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and bring many nice memories back to your home. I hope I can guide you when you come back to Kyoto in near future. Best regards, Rick

“ Very well organised & ambitious guide ”

We spent 2 days in Kyoto with Rick and are fully satisfied with the tours. Rick added his ideas on our proposals, in that way we got to see even more than expected. His command of English is excellent and it is a pleasure to have him as a guide.

Rick:

Dear Rick Thank you very much for your nice review! It was my pleasure and I am glad that you are fully satisfied. I enjoyed so much with talking with you and your family and I learned a lot about Germany. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation for the Sunday tour which had to be shortened because of the typhoon. I hope I will see you again in Kyoto in future. Best regards, Rick

“ Great tour around Kyoto ”

We hired Rick for one day around the sights of Kyoto and were very pleased with how the day went. Rick's English is very good and is easy to understand. We say everything that was promised even though it was quite a few places we fitted them in at a nice easy, un-hurried pace. He was easy to communicate with before we arrived and was eager to keep us informed during the tour. He took us to a very nice restaurant for some local food which was a nice touch.

Rick:

Thank you very much for your nice review. I am glad you enjoyed the tour and lunch. I enjoyed nice conversations with you and learned a lot about your country. I hope you will come back to Kyoto sometime in future. Best Regards, Rick
