Just brilliance. Highly recommend. This was one of the best tours I’ve ever done. Chris is very knowledgeable and also entertaining. He takes you to the ‘must see’ sites as well as authentic Japanese places to give you real insight into their culture. Thanks again Chris we had the best two days here in Kyoto.
