A Recent Review of this tour

Chizuko is the best guide. We had her guide us in Kyoto 6 years ago and we were happy that we were able to have her guide us again. We were 30 minutes late, but Chizuko was there. She maneuvered us through subways and buses. We had a leisurely walk through Nishiki Market and Gion in the very limited amount of time we had, exactly what we wanted and asked for. Chizuko was very knowledgable and pointed out the few real life geisha we encountered. It was fun and exciting. Just wish we had more time!
