We had what amounted to a private tour with Ben through some of the sites in Kyoto. Extremely pleasant, very articulate and one of the more informative and interesting walking tours I have ever been on. Not only well worth it, but likely more so if you have the good fortune to having Ben lead the way.

Kyoto has so much to offer, the walking tour was a great way to orientate ourselves. Besides seeing some key sights we got valuable background knowledge and a glimpse into Japanese culture and history. It's definitely worth doing.

Our guide taught us a lot about the history of old Kyōto and the traditional of Geishas. After staying in California and Chiba in her course of life she gave us a lot of insight into the more traditional lifestyle in the very impressive and history charged city.
