El recorrido fue muy completo de los lugares icónicos de Nara. Masa, además de hablar muy bien el español, tiene mucho conocimiento sobre la historia de los templos y hace que el recorrido se haga muy ameno. Recomendable al 100%

Fantástico tour en Nara. Masa es muy amable y explica todo muy bien. La ruta es perfecta y preciosa, con mucha naturaleza, y al ser por la mañana, aún no hay mucha gente y puedes disfrutar del paisaje como si estuvieras en la película de El Viaje de Chihiro. Las recomendaciones de comida, actividades, etc. de Masa también valen muchísimo la pena. 10/10
