“ Kyoto Day Tour ”

Mitsuyuki, was an excellent guide. He was very flexible and promptly replied to all messages. He gave some commentary for the places we visited and it was very interesting. I would recommend this tour to anyone with limited time in Kyoto.

“ Kyoto and Nara Tour ”

We enjoyed our private tour with Mitsuyuki.. he had much knowledge of the area and the sites we went to see. A full day of visiting the most beautiful temples and shrines. Look him up for a private tour.

“ there is nothing special to say because we did not receive any explanations from Mr. Mitsuyuki. ”

Mitsuyuki is nothing but a taxi driver with little knowledge of the english language and no knowledge about Kyoto and its history. No explanations, we always had to ask where we were going because he did not say anything.The tour was not worth the money. In my country I would ask to pay half price back. Sorry, but we cannot say anything better. Yours sincerely Christian & Gabriela Kras
