Chizuko was a great guide for our day in Kyoto. She was very knowledgeable and was really helpful in navigating the trains and buses. She had our train tickets and bus passes ready to go and provided a great recommendation for lunch. She made sure that we saw the sites that we wanted to see and had so much great information about Kyoto as a whole. I would definitely recommend doing a tour with her. She was truly excellent!
