You can skip Nara and easily fill 2 days in Kyoto with only the best sights, or short-change Kyoto by a day and have a great full day in Nara. Either one is certainly valid. Since your husband has been to Kyoto multiple times, I'd find out if he'd rather spend a day in Nara and see new things rather than revisit places he's already been for a second day in Kyoto.

I understand taking a guided tour of Kyoto since things are spread apart, public transport is tough, and there is a lot of culture and history to cover. Most of the Nara sights are in and around a large park within walking distance from the station, so unless you'd like specific information about each temple and shrine that you can't get in a guidebook, I don't think a guided tour is necessary.
