Patrick was a great tour guide - highly informative - great historical background as a prelude to the tour - things we wouldn't have garnered on our own, but which provided an entirely different perspective to sights seen. Really enjoyed the traditional Japanese lunch. We would recommend Patrick to anyone who wants to experience a less "touristy" point of view.
