We made the right decision in hiring Riochi ( Rick) to tour Kyoto. He was very punctual, pleasant and as a guide was well prepared. He carefully planned a customized tour with all the sights we wanted to see in 2 short days. We got around by bus, rail, subway and walking. Our time in Kyoto was very enjoyable because of Riochi, we highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert and Reina, Thank you very much for the nice rating and review for me. I am so glad that you have enjoyed the tour and I also enjoyed talking with you various things during the tour. I appreciate that you gave me some information you found in Kyoto like a nice Italian restaurant, etc. and it helps me a lot. I hope you will come back to Kyoto someday in future. Best regards, Rick

Rick was wonderful! We had an itinerary set but when we asked about places tourists might miss he suggested a temple that our entire family thought was the highlight of the day. He didn't inundate us with information but answered all the questions we had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy and families, Thank you very much for your rating and nice comments! I am very glad that you enjoyed the tour especially Sanjusangendo temple. I also enjoyed talking with you and your nice family members. Please have a nice time during the rest of your stay in japan and I hope you will be coming back in near future. Best regards, Rick
