    We almost cancelled this tour because my daughter was sick and I am so glad that we didn't because it was a uniquely wonderful experience for my family. Our drivers were Yohei Kondo and Yosuke Yamauchi, they were friendly, professional and very pleasant. They gave us a very informative tour around Arashiyama and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Arashiyama is a beautiful ancient district with beautiful temples, shrines, mountains that is well worth a visit and the rickshaw tour is a great cultural experience.
