A Recent Review of this tour

Chizuko is an excellent guide. She was punctual, knowledgeable about historical and religious history, and provided succinct responses to our many questions. Her tour covered several religious shrines; one of the edge of Kyoto and the others in Nara proper. A group of six was moved on public transit through large crowds and walked quite a bit and learned a great deal about the importance of Nara. All felt Chizuko provided an informative tour and was a person with whom we enjoyed spending our day.
