We booked a 1/2 day walking tour and Gion Night Tour with Takaaki on November 26. Takaaki gave us a great overview of Kyoto and took us to well known sites as well as some off the beaten path places. Taka is very knowledgeable and approachable and we learned a lot from him in terms of history, culture, religion and every day customs and behavior. I would recommend spending time with him to get the most of your visit to Kyoto. His English is excellent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Karla! I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the two tours. We were lucky to see beautiful Autumn colours in maple trees at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine and had a serene moment at Daitokuji Temple. This is only the beginning , let me help you explore Kyoto even deeper next time .
