My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Kobe with Hideo. As our group was made up of elderly parents, adults and young children, it was a challenge to arrange a tour that had aspects to cater to the different interests. Hideo was very helpful in sharing about all the possible areas we could explore given our fairly diverse group and after much discussion with him, we'd settled for a visit to the sake brewery, Chinatown, Kobe Animal Kingdom and a fabulous Kobe beef dinner. I appreciated very much, that Hideo was extremely prompt in his replies and so proactive in providing me with various information so I could make a proper decision on where my family and I should head to. He also gave me very specific instructions on where to meet him in Osaka and was so kind to meet us near our apartment so we could make our way to Kobe together. At the end of the tour, he even accompanied us back to our meeting point earlier in the day. Hideo was truly a great host! I highly recommend engaging Hideo as a guide if you're in Japan. His ever positive attitude, constant smiles, extensive knowledge of the country and professionalism put you in excellent stead that guarantee a great experience!
Hideo is a great guide. His English is good and he knows the site and sites well. He also moves quickly so you get to see a lot. Using trains and buses you also get a feel for the city. We walked about 10 mines during the day but with the stops etc. it did not feel difficult. I was very pleased with Hideo.
We love Mr Hideo so much. We are family of 12 and he was able to managed us very well with his prepared tour itinerary. He picked us up from our apartment and guide us all the way through the scenic spots using local trains. Highly recommended! Thank you so much Mr Hideo :)
We had two separate tours with Hideo. One for a full day to Osaka and another to Hiroshima. Hideo is very thorough in his planning and well-organized. He plans everything in detail but at the same time is very flexible according to our interests. He gave us good advice and ideas while proposing the itinerary. He is punctual and knows the cities well. He is also humble and patient and very hardworking. Thank you Hideo for bringing us around!
Hideo is a pleasant man, very knowledgeable as you would expect of a private tour guide, and ultimately made our Kyoto stay every memorable. We had a great time visiting the must see places as we only spent 3 days 2 nights there, so we decided to make the most of the with Hideo. We'll be back to Japan again and we'll be sure to book with Hideo once more!
We spent 5 enjoyable days with Hideo in Osaka and Kyoto. He was well organised, puntual, patient and flexible with our plans. He was particularly kind to assist us in any way we required, and was a pleasure to get to know during our stay in these two cities. A big thank you, again!
