A Recent Review of this tour

Eri was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and flexible. She gave us great local insight into Kinkakuji and Ryoanji. Thank you so much for spending time with us. We highly recommend her tour, the time we spent was so enjoyable.. even though I've been to Kyoto before she gave me a new love for my two favourite locations. Thanks again Eri, we will be back!
