Yes, you can and you may be able to get a discount if you are traveling alone. Price depends on which guide you choose.
He was a great guide who took us to a variety of the key landmarks in Kyoto. His knowledge is exemplary. A great experience! Totally recommend Kosuke!
Kosuke is a good and pleasant tour guide. He's very friendly and knows abt places and food very well. He accommodated the tour according to the needs of my 3 young children. Thank you Kosuke.
Kosuke is an excellent toir guide. My family and I - with an elderly mother - had a day trip in Kyoto from Osaka. He fetched right at the train platform right on time, so we didn’t have to walk around the starion looking for him. We only had a few places in mind, and left the ret up to him. He was able to bring to the few places we asked and to other places as well that were away from the tourist crowd. We had relaxing lunch - also away from the crowd - good food and quiet. And he is a good photographer. If you don’t want photobombs on your photo, Kosuke is the guy you should go to. It’s magic how he makes all those crowd disappear from your photos. Highly recommend him.
Helpful in coordinating the day for our large family group of 8. Thanks ko!
Great time with Kosuke - definitely recommend! Kosuke’s private tour allowed us to visit important sights in our short time in Kyoto that we would never have been able to do on our own. He shared valuable cultural information and took us to an impossible to find neighrhood restaurant run by a master sushi chef.
