We spent 1.5 days in Kyoto with Yasuna. She is a great guide and we enjoyed the tour with her a lot. She explains a lot about Kyoto and Japan itself so we could learn a lot from her. She cares a lot about client's wishes and this makes the tour just perfect. Thank you very much for everything!!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you very much for lots of kind words! I was so encouraged! It was great to have you for my tour for 2days. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in Kyoto. See you again someday!
