Chie was guiding me and my family of 8 people in total for 4,5 days around Kanazawa and Takayama. In our contact she made me believe she knew Kanazawa like no other since it was her home town, however it seemed as if she had not been there since high school and had kind of forgotten how to get around. However she tried her best to show us around the city and translated everything very well. In regards to food she showed us fantastic places to eat and drink and we had fun anyways. Would definitely reccomend her for an American family or group!
Hi Dee-Dee, thank you for your review. It was a great honor to travel with your wonderful family. As for forgetting how to get around, I suppose you mean the first evening in the castle ruins and attached garden, since we didn't have problem getting around the city the next day, well, except for the intense heat! I'm really sorry about giving you a wrong impression and making you walk unnecessarily. The ruins were heavily altered in recent years, but it was the closest thing to your hotel so I thought it would be a good activity after the train trip and before dinner. I should have chosen something more exciting for you which I'm more familiar with. Again, thank you so much for your feedback. I hope you had a wonderful time in Kyoto and Osaka.
