“This was our third experience and certainly our favorite. Ross is easy to be with, knows and loves Kyoto, and shares it in a laid back manner. A comfortable pace, seeing beauty we wouldn’t have found on our own. Quality bikes, and quiet, colorful side streets, the magic of the golden temple and the serenity of the gardens made for the perfect outing.”

"The best way to get around Kyoto is on a bicycle! We booked two trips with Ross. He's very knowledgeable not only on the best routes and temples outside of the usual tourist itinerary but also on the different culture and practices in Kyoto. Our Noru experiences were definitely the highlight of our Kyoto stay! Thanks Ross and Josh!"
