Great Experience Dodging the Crowds

Fauzi was a great host and very accommodating of our weird requests (the foliage AND the pug cafe??). We had no idea what to expect in Kyoto and despite the massive tourist crowds he did a great job of finding more secluded spots and keeping us engaged. We had a blast and I'd absolutely recommend him to anyone coming to the city for the first time.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2019
I’m happy to hear that you had an enjoyable time with Fauzi in Kyoto. One of our key missions is to show the authentic side of the city, so I’m glad you explored some of these (weird and whacky) places despite the tourist crowds. We want to make sure our experiences are tailored according to your needs and interests and that after the experience you feel more knowledgeable about the city and more confident to explore it on your own. We hope to see you in the future so we can connect you with another one of our 1000+ hosts worldwide Warm regards, Zoe

Great time with Juraj!

We had such a great time with Juraj. He knew so much about all the places we went to - from history, to Japanese folklore, and current events - that there was never a dull moment. He walked us home through the scenic route too even if we were way past the tour’s end time. Would 10/10 recommend 👍🏻

Mariana was my tour guide and cannot thank her enough for such a wonderful experience and seeing the city thought her eyes. I ask to see places less seen by the tourists and she certainly delivered. Thank you Mariana
