We had an outstanding experience with Katsuko in Kyoto. We saw many of the important sites in a time efficient manner. Her explanations were thoughtful and thorough. Her English was excellent and understandable. Her choice for lunch was just off the beaten path but was totally authentic and allowed us to sample the local cuisine. If we were to return to Kyoto, we would want her to show us the other sites we missed.
