We took our tour with Mardi, she spoke fluent Japanese and English and knew so much about the history of Japan and the details and customs of the country. Thoroughly enjoyed how the groups are very small. 2-6 people, making the experience intimate and unique to each group. We could ask anything about Japan and Mardi always had an answer for us. She took us to two bars we’d never have never gone into, mainly because they were off the beaten path and because they seemed to be more local bars. We got to experience Kobe need and many other tapas type dishes and foods we wouldn’t have ventured and tried otherwise. Honestly great tour for Japan. If you want o really learn about the distinct districts in Kyoto and really immerse in the culture, look no further than taking one of these tours. Two thumbs up For Mardi!

Mardi was a well informed and enthusiastic American who speaks and reads Japanese. She showed us some interesting sites but best of all she took us to some cool places to eat and drink thst we would have had no chance of finding on our own. Pleasant polite intelligent would recommend Mardi if you have a few hours in Kyoto

Wonderful tour where you can learn about the history of Kyoto and eat your way through it in local spots!! The guide, Mardi, was fantastic, and I really enjoyed trying new food that I wouldn't have known to order. I would 100% recommend this tour!

Excellent tour, Sean’s knowledge and delivery of information is fun and interesting. This tour covers some big hot spots and is like pedaling around with a fun friend, full of fabulous history and interesting facts!!

I would highly recommend this company. It’s very personalized and you feel like a friend is with you just having fun. Mardi is a great guide. She’s so helpful, easy-going, smart, and flexible.
