Very interesting! I did this on my first day and it really helped to plan the rest of the trip from the guide's recommendations and what I heard from fellow group members. The true value of having a guide I recognised when we ended up in the same area I visited by myself just a few hours before - on my own I missed a whole awesome shrine Fushimi Inary - i.e. an elephant in the room!, an opportunity to sample local snacks and a whole lot of very interesting history and modern day facts that I got on this tour. I am definitely doing guided walking tours from now on. Paul, the guide was great, native English speaker, he answered a lot of our questions about challenges of living in Japan for a westerner. Very very informative and enjoyable. Highly recommend.
