Nara English Guided Tour

Any suggestions for goodwill English guided tour in Nara?
I only have half a day (in the morning) to spend there, should I join a tour or tour by myself?

    I visited Nara as a day trip by train from Kyoto. Stopped in the Tourist Info Office in the train station when I arrived. They gave me a free map and a good explanation of how to visit the city. It can be walked in a great circle. You can stop to see the sites you want and skip the ones that don't interest you in particular. No guide necessary, really.

    My daughter, 21 years old, went to Japan on her own in August. She actually had a personal English speaking tour guide in Nara that she didn't even have to pay for. Apparently, there are people who volunteer or perhaps are paid through other sources to provide this service. I believe there are tourist offices you can visit. I can double check with her later on in the day.
