    Hiroshi Sensei is very knowledgeable, humorous and wonderful! He took us on an amazing tour of Kyoto and also took us to eat some very delicious local Japanese food.

    Yoshie was absolutely fantastic. He was very nice and accommodating, and helped specialize the tour and sites to meet our individual wants/desires. Yoshie was very informative and provided insight to details that we would not have noticed without him.

    We hired Masaki (Makoon) for 2 days while we were in Kyoto. He was exactly what we weee looking for. My kids absolutely loved him and his tour. He was so knowledgeable about Japanese history (including the Relstiknships between the Shogun and the Emperor) and was able to explain it to our children in such a fun and easy way. He has his own car so we were able to avoid the hot days when we traveled from different sites. He took us to the popular sites and even some less frequented sites that w... view more

    Jordan ( United States )

    We only had one day in Kyoto so we asked Yoshi to move quickly through the city and still see all the sites and that he did. We saw everything that we wanted to see but never felt rushed. Yoshi was great- we recommend him! view more

    Janis ( United States )

    Mitsusan picked us up & dropped us back at our hotel in Osaka , which made it very convenient for us. We had taken our teenage grandkids on our trip and so I arranged with Mitsusan on the places we thought they would enjoy in Osaka & Kyoto. Mitsusan was accommodating and we all had a fun day. Aloha & Mahalo, Mitsusan view more

    Stephanie ( United States )

    We loved getting to know Toshiyo. She is very energetic and a fast walker, which I loved. She is a hiker so can keep up with the best of them. She showed us all over Kyoto by bus and provided fast facts along the way. The restaurant we went to for lunch, owned by a tea company, was delicious. She also was a great photographer and got excellent shots of us. I would highly recommend her. view more
