    I traveled to Kyoto with 2 of my children ages 20 and 19. We hired Koichi as our guide and could not have been happier. He spoke excellent English. He took us to see many interesting sites in Kyoto. He had a strong knowledge of the history of the places we visited. We also wanted an authentic Japanese restaurant that was not a tourist trap and could accommodate my vegan daughter and son with a lactose allergy. We had an incredible multi course meal. We also went to a traditional Japanese ... view more

    Augustin was an excellent guide for our extensive tour of Kyoto. He was accommodating, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He even did the tour in Spanish and English since our group was bilingual. We had a really great day. view more

    Jurgita ( Switzerland )

    We had only 1,5 days in Kyoto and wanted to see a lot! We had a very big list of things to see. With excellent time management skills and knowledge of the area he guided us with ease! We were able to see not only main attraction but also some hidden gems of Kyoto. We would not be able to see all of it on our one! Thank you! Kindly, Jurgita view more

    Hanna ( United States )

    We really enjoyed our day with Kosuke. He took us to many temples, shrines, parks and unique places where tourists don't typically wonder, which provided much more insight into the culture and life in Kyoto. He also took us to Nara even though it was not scheduled because he said it would be a fun place for the girls and he was absolutely right! The extra drive was very worthwhile. Later in the day, we went over time and he did not expect any additional compensation because he truly wanted us ... view more

    We spent a full day in Kyoto with Yoshie and he was an absolutely pleasure...extremely knowledgeable and consideration. We covered more ground this day than any other in our trip and he didn't just walk us to the spots for good picture taking but gave us the full background and significance of each site which was what we were looking for. Yoshie was a great conversationalist and highly sensitive to our needs, preferences and occasional confusion with the language. view more

    Thanks Richard for a really enjoyable day in Kyoto. We tried a whole lot of foods that we otherwise wouldn’t have and a real highlight was the tea ceremony. Thanks for pulling it all together at such short notice. Loved your stories. view more

    Sharon ( United States )

    Masaki (Makoon san) didn't just show us Kyoto...but he showed us the behind the scenes in ways that a regular tour (or guide for that matter) never could have provided. I had 2 teenagers with me and he was great with them as they learned but remaining super engaged. Our full day itinerary was completely customized ahead of time to suit our interests - which included providing a balance of temples/history with an interest to get a deep exploration of culture, food, etc. And communicating with... view more

    As a first time visitor to Kyoto I was looking for informed and efficient guidance. Kaori filled our 8 + hours together not only with information but also with extremely pleasant conversation and thoughtful responses to my each site we visited. I highly recommend her services. view more
