Masayo-san is a great tour guide! The sites were excellent and our guide was very knowledgable and made sure we enjoyed the sites. Her english was excellent too! A highlight is seeing a real Geiko while in the streets of Gion. Masayo-san helped us in spotting one and we are so happy! Will definitely recommend this to my friends!
