    Hiroshi picked us up from our hotel to start our tour. He was extremely energetic and you could not see anymore in one day if you tried. He was very knowledgeable an went out of his way to make sure you could capture good pictures. He even bought us a treat! view more

    Shannon ( New Zealand )

    We had a great day in Kyoto with Hiro. He helped us plan a full day itinerary and was very accommodative to any changes. We actually went faster than his itinerary so we tagged on something extra at the end as well. He is very knowledgeable and fun to spend a day with and would highly recommend using his services! I am 6 months pregnant and he made sure I was ok the whole time. Very good! view more

    My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a fantastic day with Katsuko in Kyoto in early September. The entire day was simply outstanding from start to finish. Katsuko's manner and professionalism is only matched by her knowledge and passion for the city. Katsuko organised a personal itinerary that covered all of our main interests as well as making some brilliant suggestion for our other days in Kyoto. A guide in Kyoto is a great way to get around and I would have no hesitation in highly rec... view more

    Makoon did an amazing job from start to finish. He was great communicating with us prior to our visit. Once we got there, he was easy to understand and showed us a great time in Kyoto. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the city and the Geisha culture. He also brought us to a fantastic Ramen spot for lunch. Anyone coming to Kyoto and looking to have a guide should book Makoon! view more

    Michael ( United States )

    Yumiko was the perfect guide for us. She went out of her way to meet us at the train station closer to our hotel and we were off for a grand adventure. Yumiko assembled an excellent itinerary that hit key highlights like Fushimi-Inari, Kiyomizudera and the Gion district, but also some more off the beaten path spots. She was very patient with impromptu stops to shop and picked an excellent tea house for lunch. We had to end a little early due to a sudden thunderstorm, but in total, it was a p... view more

    RYAN ( United States )

    Koichi was the guide for my 12 year old son and I for one day in Kyoto (September 2019). Koichi met us at the hotel on time and our day was planned nicely by Koichi to correspond to the specific time we had alloted (not a lot of "down time" and we also were by no means "rushed"). It was a warm day and Koichi worked hard throughout the day to make our day informative, as relaxed as it could be with the temparature, and fun. Koichi is extremely knowledgeable about the history and background ... view more

    Mari is excellent. She is very knowledgeable of Kyoto, personable, prompt and very organized. Her command of English is flawless. Highly recommend her for future tours. view more

    Elena ( United States )

    Richard is engaging, knowledgeable, flexible, and fun. His personality is icing on the cake. If we return to Japan, we will make sure we hire him for several days, not one like this time. He facilitated the best memories we’ll have from this trip. view more

    Jim ( United States )

    We just spent a full, fascinating and delightful day being guided through Kyoto by Yoshihisa. We visited many of the major sites, which he curates beautifully, and we never felt rushed nor stressed. A former English teacher, Yoshie is a wealth of history, stories, poems and puns. If you are visiting Kyoto for the first time, I highly recommend spending your first day with Yoshie. view more

    Stephen ( United States )

    Seiko guided us right from the train platform throughout the day to all of major sights of Kyoto. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all the history, culture, and little details of the city. Plus, she provides the personable touch to ensure you enjoy every moment that you will not get from a big tour company! We are so very greatful to her for an amazing day in Kyoto! view more
