Awesome LIVE ZOOM Tour of Kyoto, Osaka or Nara

Awesome LIVE ZOOM Tour of Kyoto, Osaka or Nara

star-5

This is a ZOOM TOUR. No one can do this tour like me. It is the next best thing to being here. Please disregard the stupid licensing thing as no one is required to be licensed. I am authorized to do tours and I have 22 years of experience as a professional, interpretive, guide, and pretty much no one, can provide these tours like I can. I am also a native English Speaker. I also tell bad jokes..... My tours are interactive, you get to relax at home while I do all the walking and you get to explore this area I am in of Japan in the comfort of your own home. Since a lot of people either will not be able to come to Japan or will not be able to afford to bring the fam here for a while because of this crazy virus thing going on, this is the next step. Make a sushi party at home and you guys relax and let me do the leg work. You will love it!
