Peter offers a number of services through his Kyoto Sights and Nights business; for a small fee Peter will take you on a personalized tour of the Gion area and give facts and stories on the geisha world tailored to your interests and level of information.

For those able to spend a little more money ($700 – $1500 dollars) he offers a unique experience of either a short audience with a Maiko or a full Geisha banquet including a dance performance. Being able to book such a private audience as an outsider is a very rare luxury and having done this myself I highly endorse the experience; the additional money is worth the once in a lifetime experience.

The Australia TV show The Great Outdoors went to Kyoto and took Peter Macintosh’s walking tour, you can see the segment from the show below.
