Amazing!
You have the best tour guides. Alejandro shared his knowledge of Arayashima and passion for preservation of these temples, gardens and area.
This was our favorite tour, rainy weather notwithstanding. Marcin routed us away from the clots of tourists so that we had a very peaceful, calm, significant experience in this gorgeous place. For all of our tours, the timely emails with joining instructions were so helpful, especially the Google map links. Very well done, from beginning to end.
