Sam gave us excellent experiences in Kyoto. I fell down three times during cycling, Sam and our team waited me patiently and worried me sincerely. Thank you for your help.

This is a must-do in Kyoto - a fun, relaxed and efficient way of seeing Kyoto’s highlights. Tierry was a great guide on the South loop and we learned much more than we could have on our own. Great value for money!
