We will decide:
where and when we will meet (i. g. at your hotel at 9 am)
where to go (i. g. Fushimi Inari, sake breweries, and walking along Kamo river)
how to get around (public transport or arranged car?)
how long the tour is going to be (full day or half day?)


We will fix down our own itinerary talking to each other.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hisao is a very special tour guide. Smart, experienced, flexible and energetic. I can say I had one of the most fun and interesting days of my life with him as a guide in Kyoto yesterday. I had asked Hisao for a tour that would avoid tourist cliches and crowds and he really delivered. Small authentic sake houses, shrines at times less crowded, walks through authentic and diverse neighborhoods, even a small and very cool cocktail bar playing American jazz on vinyl. Hisao is great.
