A Recent Review of this tour

Koichi provided a great tour experience, taking us to the best sites in Kyoto and even customizing the tour when my wife expressed interest in Japanese gardens. He knows how to get the best photos (making it look like we were the only people at the sites) and the lunch stop at a traditional soba restaurant was an excellent introduction to a new style of food for us. We would highly recommend Koichi for a Kyoto tour.
