A Recent Review of this tour

Takaaki was a wonderful guide and very easy going. We learned a lot and had a very relaxing and informative bike ride through Northern Kyoto and several beautiful temples, shrines, and gardens and local spots. We visited lots of hidden gems, had a delicious lunch and local snacks, and learned a ton. Felt like getting a tour from a friend of a friend! Look forward to visiting again. Thank you, Takaaki!
