Marc was a wonderful guide. He came prepared with visual aids and took the time to tell a very comprehensive picture with enthusiasm and energy. He was thoughtful and open to questions, and all around excellent. Highly recommend him.
We enjoyed this tour very much! Gavin was incredibly knowledgeable about Kyoto history and shared it in a very thoughtful way. We were able to appreciate the beauty and quality of the historical architecture much more with Gavin's insights. Highly recommend Context Tours and Gavin!
