Spending a day with Hiro was the best way to get a good feel for Kyoto, plenty of sights to see and he knew them all! We thought we would only get to see a couple but the pace that he walks we got to see quite a few and he was happy to accomadate us. His knowledge and explainations of the sites made it interesting and educational, with the added bonus of Hiro being a keen photographer he captures all the good photos that you can't get in a selfie. Thank you for your time Hiro and thank you for drop boxing and mailing the photos.
We spent two lovely days in Kyoto with Hiro-san, he was a very helpful and considerate guide! Definitely bring your walking shoes as we packed in a lot of sites. Hiro-san was extremely helpful when our camera got lost on the train (before arriving in Kyoto, and we did get it back thank goodness!), communicating with the train stations, JR offices, etc., and he was very kind to let us use his camera in the meantime (sending the pictures via Dropbox). He was also very flexible around our dietary restrictions by finding places with vegetarian food. His background information around the sites definitely augmented the experience, as we wouldn't have known any of the history without him, his background as a school teacher shows! Thank you Hiro-san for your hospitality and a wonderful tour of Kyoto! ありがとうございました!
Thank you Hiroshi San for an amazing experience! We were able to see so much! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and making the day fun!
I did a private tour with Hiroshi and it was the best thing I could have done in the city. He helped me understand every shrine and temple and what to know about the meaning of everything. I also got to learn about the transportation and the following days utilized everything I learned from Hiroshi! Thank you!
