This tour was hugely disappointing. While our guide is a nice person, she added very little value. She did not have much to say about the castle or palace that was not on the signs and did not engage either when we asked her questions -- even about her area of expertise -- religion.
Kana was fantastic
John was fantastic! The breadth of knowledge of Japanese history and culture gave us an invaluable sense of Kyoto both in history and in the present. Our experience was enhanced by the personalized experience we received. We will definitely reach out to Context in the future.
