“ Amazing customized Tour Kyoto ”

We let Toru know the different places we wanted to go in Kyoto(about 6 listed at bottom) and we managed to go to all of them with plenty of time for each to explore. Our two concerns going in where communication skills and knowledge of history, takes and fun facts. Toru was covered in both immensely! His English was really good and he knew the answer to every question we asked and even gave us background of a ton of small features of the different areas. It was hands down the best tour I’ve done(I’ve never tried private, only group tours). Thanks again Toru for the perfect Kyoto trip! Places visited; Sanjusangen-do Temple Kiyomizudera Imperial Palace Nijo-jo Castle Kinkaku-ji Temple Fushimi-Inari
