A Recent Review of this tour

Yoshiro was really a fantastic guide. He came to our hotel to meet us and he was so prepared and explained the entire tour to us. As we toured with him he was very knowledgeable and we learned so much from him about Nara and about Japanese culture more generally. He was very gracious and helpful and his English was really perfect ! I have been on many tours in the world and I was really impressed by him. We would recommend him for any area of Japan as a tour guide.
