Customer Reviews for Kobe Tours

    Susan ( Australia )

    Kaori greeted us with a huge smile and made sure we could get about Kobe very effectively. She had gone out of her way to find somewhere tasty and interesting for lunch and because both of us had an interest in textiles she found a wonderful weaving class we could take. The time spent with Kaori was very enjoyable. She gave us an insight into how to get about Kobe which was invaluable. Would highly recommend a tour with Kaori. view more

    Since it was the first time for my family of 5 to visit Kobe, I was a little worried that we might not be able to go to the sights that we wanted to see conveniently. Koichi was very accommodating to us. He was open to my suggestions for the itinerary and was kind to adjust to our requests. He was also very informative of the places that we went to.He even accompanied my husband and son to go to a robot store while in Kobe.

    Kenji was so organized with planning our two days together. He carefully took all of our input and planned perfect days for the three of us (age 14 to 77).

    Jay ( United States )

    Shinichi guided us for 2 days; first in Kyoto and then in Kobe. With our permission in advance, he hired a taxi for the day in Kyoto as it was extremely crowded (cherry blossoms) and getting around by public transportation was extremely difficult. In Kobe, we used public buses and then went by rail to visit Himeji Castle. Throughout Shinichi was very pleasant, flexible, professional and caring. He also arranged for a couple of lunches in small, typical Japanese restaurants that we enjoyed imm... view more

    Mari met our group at the ship's pier and we rode the Portliner Tram to the Kobe Train Station. We took the train to Himeji and walked five blocks to the Himeji Castle. Mari was an outstanding tour guide and shared her knowledge of the region, the history of the castle and answered all of our queries. Her explanations were thorough and we learned a lot about this area. We shared a delightful lunch and returned to the ship's port in Kobe. This was a very enjoyable tour with Mari as our tour guide... view more
