Katsuko is the perfect guide. Prompt with her email replies and gave us suggestions for our tour as well as letting us tailor the day to the sights we wanted to enjoy. She met us at out hotel and we used public transport and taxis to travel between the sights which was interesting in itself.Had a lovely lunch in a small restaurant in Gion and it catered for a vegetarian meal. We ended the day walking through Nishiki Market and she helped us with some shopping. The perfect hospitable guide, look no further
