Kyoto Nishiki Market Food Tour
- Duration: 3 hours
I had a really great day with my guide Taibi, he contacted me first and had a plan in mind based on what I'd asked, he tailored this after a quick talk when we met and we set off, I was able to take as many photographs as I needed and with a real focus on my interests. He knows the city and area well, gets on with the locals too and provided me with many memorable photographs and made the day all the more pleasant with his conversation. I was even given recommendations and information for my upcoming travels. Really felt like I was treated and included as a close friend and not just a customer. It was a most memorable experience and birthday as well, and I hope to return to Kyoto before I leave Japan and intend to return in the future for a similar tour for the areas I did not manage to see.
Mimi was amazing! She was punctual when she met us and so sweet. It was a small group of us (only four people, not including Mimi, our guide) so we were able to ask a ton of questions and take our time. She’s got some great suggestions for additional things to see and do while in Kyoto as well.
Our guide Tanya took us to the temple which was the start of the Aoi Festival. This was a great idea and gave us some good insight into the main parade which was a few days later. We finished at a delicious ramen cafe.
When visiting Kyoto I highly recommend spending the day with Taibi! He made our visit interesting and we felt like a local. We could not have asked for a better experience. Thankyou
Georgia was a wonderful guide and she was very knowledgeable in the gardens, architecture and history of Kyoto. She was very personable as well. We had a wonderful experience.
