“ A Great Day Out ”

We had a very enjoyable half day Nara city tour with Akira. He was prompt in meeting us and gave us excellent instructions on how to get from Kobe to Nara. We got to see all the best things in Nara on our short visit and would recommend Akira to others thinking about a private guide
