“ Day tour highlights of Kyoto ”

Our family of 5 with teens 16, 14 and 11 years had a great day with Richard. He was flexible, warm, knowledgeable and aimed the day correctly for teens and parents to enjoy. We highly recommend him as a guide in Kyoto.

Richard:

Thank you guys! So much! Sorry for the rain, it puts a damper on things. Hope you enjoyed the Samurai House. Special day indeed. If you could take the time to write something on TripAdvisor and tell them you found me here on Triple lights, I would appreciate it deeply. Thank you again for a fun day!!!!! Kind regards Richard

“ Temples, shrines & food. ”

Richard was well prepared, energetic and easy going. Extremely knowledgeable on local culture, particularly regarding Osaka’s Shogan past and religious events. A vast amount of information to absorb in one morning and we were greatfull that there was no exam to follow up! The food and sake destinations were just what we hoped for and his regular contacts among the small food vendors made for a great culinary experience. His recent discovery of the historical Living Village and tour of the market were highlights.

Richard:

Thank you John and Sandy. I am so glad you had a good time. Thought I asked the Cruise Ship staff to leave the tests in the room...... odd..... Have a great trip and hope to see you again Kind regards, Richard

“ a day with the oldies ”

Richard met us at our hotel on time. good start. We had a marvellous day. He is so informative about all things japanese. He was very patient and caring as sometimes we were a bit slow moving. In addition we had a new guide learning, Sirena is a gorgeous person couldn't speak highly enough of her as well. We would highly recommend Richard for a tour of Kyoto. Memorable day. Thank you Richard

Richard was great. He has lots of stories, history and fun facts to share as we went on our tour...and his passion for Japan is very evident....great & fun guy , we had a really nice time and certainly recommend him to show you around Kyoto .

Richard:

Thank you guys so much for coming with me on the tour and letting me drag you around Kyoto. I think you guys took my train cards, and if possible could you throw them in an envelope and send them back to me? Please come again, but next time let's make a little more time as you were pressed for time this time. Kind regards Richard
