As a man, this was such a fun experience. When I checked in, I think the (male) receptionist was a bit shocked to see it was only me, but he handled it with care and I didn't feel embarrassed at all. The photoshoot itself only lasted about 10 minutes, but they do offer to take some personal pictures with your cell phone. (So you don't only get the professionally shot photos advertised!) They also have an option to go to a private shoot in a home, but the cost was like $400 or something. Something to consider if you really want to have an extra special experience.
Lanny did a fantastic job with us in Kyoto! She gave us each some time 10-30 mins after to have a quick break for us to go and see/snack on other places we saw around the main sites which was very nice & gave us more time to enjoy. I highly recommend this tour! We miss you Lanny, this is Lynna (the girl with the purple hair & glasses) :) You helped us enjoy parts of Kyoto & explained more to us than if we tried to travel on our own. We really appreciated the air conditioned/heated coach bus also, thank you!
The tour met my expectations. Our tour guide Jung did an excellent job giving us the history of each sites. He personally approached us and accommodated request for picture taking. I’m glad we did the package with the lunch included, that was an experience as well. Overall it was an excellent experience and touched most of the Kyoto’s highlights.
The tour was well-planned, we saw the most interesting sites in Kyoto. Our guide, Yoko was excellent. She was pleasant and knew her stuff.
Shasta our guide was excellent! Very knowledgeable, professional and fun! Thank you
