“ Simple Fun at Kyoto ”

Mr Hiro is a good guide. He adjusted the schedule and scope of the tour according to our needs. He did not rush us in each site. He lets us take as much photos we want. He also took us to a good affordable restaurant for lunch. It was just too bad that we were not able to see geishas at Gion district. He did not know that the shops were closed during Sundays. We could have gone to the Bamboo Grove instead of the Gion District. Mr. Hiroshi does not have much information to share regarding the sites but it was fine with us. Thank you for your service, Mr Hiro. We had a good time and your pictures of us are great! Thank you.

“ Enjoyable tour in Kyoto with Hiro ”

Spent 2 relaxing and enjoyable days with Hiro touring Kyoto with my husband. I mentioned to him the places we wanted to visit and he planned the itinerary very well and was organized. Very punctual on both days. Provided key information on all the attractions we visited and was very patient and friendly. Good photographer too as he helped myself and my husband to take several photos along the way. Overall, was a very enjoyable tour with Hiro!
