This experience turned into an all day adventure and was truly phenomenal! Brian customized each part of the journey to what we were interested in. We got to stop in Uji and Fushimi-Innari which played to our interests best. I could not believe the amount of details we got for each part of the process. Other tourists were trying to listen into Brian's information because they could tell he knew his stuff! I would do the tour again in a heartbeat and probably learn even more. The best part hands down is that Brian doesnt just impart knowledge but encourages us to really think ourselves. Truly a mind opening experience.
Marc was terrific and had wide and deep knowledge about both Nara and Japan which is what I hope for w Context. Could have used cabs to improve the experience, not so much uphill walking.
Marc is a very knowledgeable and very sympathetic docent
