We throughly enjoyed our private tour with Ellie through Kyoto. Ellie was a great tour kid and put together an excellent day for our family. Ellie was very knowledgeable, informative and kept our family interested throughout the day. We felt like we accomplished a lot in the one day and Ellie was great at seeing the best of what Kyoto has to offer. I would highly recommend this private tour to anyone visiting Kyoto.
