We ha a wonderful day with Luca. We got to see residential and agricultural areas, while at the same time being able to see incredible smaller temples without the crowds. This was my favourite part. Also, cycling around the city does give you a different perspective in terms of its lifestyle and dimension. Luca is very knowledgeable of Japanese culture and history and speaks perfect English. Highly recommended if you like active travel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vanessa, I really enjoyed taking you around and I'm glad that you had a great experience. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future.
We had an exceptional day with Luca who was very friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about all the main Kyoto sights . We couldn't have wished for a better look at some of Kyoto's most popular tourist spots . Luca made the day very easy, getting us on and off trains and the subway with ease ! We can't recommend him enough .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Annamaria, thanks for the nice review, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you guys. Wish you a great day in Tokyo tomorrow and maybe see you again in Kyoto one day.

I was picked up at my hotel by Luca and we walked to the train station. He showed me where the Maiko and Geisha street was and how to tell which houses. We took train to Nara - absolutely loved it with the deer and the scenery. Luca was very knowledgeable about the history etc.. we walked and talked and he explained everything very patiently to me. I had another great day. Thank you.
