    Kanji is the perfect tour guide. He promptly met us at the ship and proceeded to guide us through the trains to Kyoto. He had the days activities well planned and made sure that we flowed the plan and got us back to the ship on time. I would highly recommend Kenji. view more

    I spent 5 days with Chisato; 2 of which were spent exploring medicinal herbs and farming outside of Kyoto. Chisato is extremely enthusiastic and knowledgable about agriculture. She is always eager to share her experiences which makes the trips so much more than your usual run-of-the-mills tours. Chisato is a wonderful, detail-oriented guide that I would not hesitate to recommend to others! view more

All in all a wonderful althou... view more

    Keiko did an excellent job and she is very professional. Her day plan worked perfect and we had enough time to see the pre-planned attractions and didn't loose time by transport.

    Mr. Tatsuhiro made our experience in Kyoto something we would cherish forever. He is a gentleman, very patient and so sweet. He met us with a Jack O lantern with USA flag. Very welcoming.
