Let me start off by saying, I never write positive reviews, but I had such an amazing experience I wanted to share. I was lucky enough to have 1 1:1 tour with Ray. This says a lot, as Ray could have easily cancelled but he is so passionate about Kyoto and all it has to offer.

We are not early birds. We are not the best bikers either. In fact, I’ve never ridden more than 5 miles per trip. But this bike tour was worth every minute I could have been sleeping and even surprised myself I could complete the 42 miles without much difficulty! Peter and Keith
