I booked the guide for a friend of mine and his family. They told me she was a wonderful guide.
It was a pleasure to have Toshiba as our guide for one morning. She was friendly, obliging and we could communicate well in English. She did a good job of taking us to the places we requested. I would happily have her as my guide again.
Our family had a wonderful time in Gion with the help of Toshiyo. Our pace was just right, especially in that we were with my 75-year old mother, and Toshiyo was flexible enough to adjust the pace. We enjoyed the Kimono experience and the sushi lunch place she had reserved for us. She is able to suggest different activities apart from the usual sight seeing.
Kyoto has many beautiful places to visit. I especially would like to take you to the most exciting spots in Kyoto in 1 day. Please pick a few of the options from the following sightseeing places and I will take you as many places as possible at a reasonable price.
