I enjoyed two customized long days trips organized by Kay travelling from Kyoto to lesser visited temples, shrines and nature sights in Nara and Wakayama prefectures. My wishes for the trips were fulfilled thanks to Kay’s care and guiding input.
Thank you for your attending the tour. I'm very happyto hear you are satisfied with Nara and Wakayama tour. Kansai area has still a lot of beautiful places to visit , so I hope you travel again and enjoy the area.
Kay was very nice and kind. Showing us around Kyoto and we had a good time :)
