A Recent Review of this tour

We had a private tour led by Koichi san to Nara. Koichi san was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of educational and interesting information on Nara in general and on the specific sites/highlights that we visited. We had a group of 4 people with an elderly and a child. Koichi san was very flexible and patient with our group, making sure we were able to take rest stops, have coffee, and shop for local specialties. We was very kind and Friendly. We highly recommend him.
