I just wanted to say a thank you to Julien for the walking tour of Kyoto. It was a wonderful experience; he was very knowledgeable and had lots of great stories about the places we saw. The route took us through some absolutely magical back ways and tiny paths that we never would have known about otherwise. I would highly recommend this.

Thank you so much for the wonderful tour!
You were certainly vert attentive and interesting. What helped is that you master the English language, so we could understand everything at greater depth. You were so informative!
We loved the evening tour, and would highly recommend it to everyone. We loved the small narrow streets with all the teahouses. We would never have found these if we had been on our own. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our tour and can not think of anything for improvement.
Thank you for a very special evening!!!

Thank you for taking us on a night walk on Friday. We enjoyed it very much in spite of the cold. We found your presentation both entertaining and informative and would happily accompany you again.

"Our guide Herve was superb. He's French but has a keen grasp of Japanese religion, culture and tradition. We went at a fairly brisk pace and felt like the magical distant world of Old Kyoto was opening up to us, street by street. We saw the lovely Shinto temples through the Sakura branches...The night was lovely and most of the streets were empty of tourists (but lighting was lovely)- it was a total delight. At one point Herve realized by the activity and sudden parking movements of a particular taxi, that maybe we should wait to stop to see if actual Geisha and Maiko would alight- they did! So awesome to see the real thing on the streets of Kyoto! We would highly recommend this experience- to French and English speakers alike. Wonderful"

Just a few words to thank you for the evening that you have enabled us to spend. It was really magical and we will remember it for a long time, and the beauty, refinement and peace which prevailed in the exceptional places that we visited affected us.
