A Recent Review of this tour

Tomoko (Tomo) a little pocket dynamo took us to the beautiful temples and gardens concentrating (our request) on the eastern side of Kyoto. We got around very efficiently with the metro/subway (only way to travel and very cost effective) ending up in Gion, a must to see old suburban architecture and Geisha life. En route we went through the typical old Kyoto suburbs, with quaint houses, beautiful sculptured little gardens - meticulously clean. Recommend Tomo's services as a knowledgeable pleasant guide.
