Our guide Masaki-San was not only well informed and well prepared on the topics he showed us; he made it interesting to all the different ages in my family. With New year holidays, many places were shut and Masaki had to think on his feet and adapted quickly to the situation and at the end of the tour, we all felt much better informed about Kyoto and it's rich history. Take this tour without hesitation.
