It was clear within five minutes that Brian is a born teacher. You bump into him and a semester's worth of knowledge falls out. :-) We got so much interesting information on Japanese history and religion, delivered in an unfailingly engaging way. Brian stayed hours longer than our tour was scheduled for. Really appreciated seeing these temples through his well-informed eyes.
We really enjoyed this tour and felt inspired by Elizabeth Kenney to return to Kyoto. Traveling at times can be stressful and she really allowed us to relax into the timeless beauty of Kyoto’s treasures. She was also very generous with her knowledge and wisdom. Arigato gozaimasu Elizabeth and Context!
The tour was outstanding, our docent extremely knowledgeable, personable, and enthusiastic. We were also grateful for his flexibility in rescheduling, making it possible for us to enjoy the tour without a typhoon in the background.
