Hey you two! Cheers for the incredible tour and kind words! That was a memorable one thanks to you two :) You were a lot of fun to share the morning with and what a morning it was with that weather! Thanks for sharing your personal photos. It is always a joy to see things from another perspective. I hope you both are well and look forward to you stopping by next time you are in Kyoto!

We had such a wonderful time biking in the early morning. It was worth the early train trip. Our guide, Peter, was great. We enjoyed all the information he provided and most importantly he was fun. We recommend this trip to everyone.
