We booked 2 tours with Hideo Yoshida. One full day tour in Osaka and Nara and another full day tour in Kyoto including Arashiyama. From my first email to inquire about private tours, Hideo sent a reply very fast. As we discussed our itinerary, I sent many emails with many questions and he was very patient, efficient and prompt in replying to my emails. Because of his fast replies with complete details, we were able to finalize our booking in a very short time. The most important thing I appreciate about Hideo is his EXTRA help with my other requests that are outside of the tour services that we booked with him. He helped us book our transportation for sightseeing including for places that we visited without a guide. He also helped us think of activities we can do for the new year, helped us arrange for a wheelchair when we needed one and helped us purchase our theme park special passes. He even sent me more emails with additional information that he suggested based on our interests. He made extra preparations for our tours by giving us folders with maps and brochures about the places we visited. For our tour without a guide, he made sure our transportation with wheelchair was arranged, he forwarded to me name and contact details of driver in advance so we can easily find him when he picks us up in our hotel. Hideo is an experienced and very knowledgeable guide. He is also very detailed and well organized. The best thing about Hideo is he goes the extra mile to help us with all our needs and requests. We were able to make the most out of our sightseeing with Hideo's guidance. I would like to thank him for all his help in making our trip memorable and worthwhile.

Hideo:
Dear Jennifer I am very glad to receive your message. I was relieved to hear you could enjoy yourself on 1-Jan new year(2016). We had a great time in Nara, Osaka and Kyoto, so I miss you and your group. I wish you a happy new year and I'll do my best as a tour guide. Thank you very much, Jennifer!! Best regards, HIDEo YOSHIda

“ One day in Kyoto ”

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.

“ Tour of Osaka and hiroshima ”

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:
Hi Lynn Thank you for your review. We had a good conversation especially in the Peace Memorial Museum. I hope you enjoy Japan. I wish your family the best of health. Thank you, Lynn. Best, HIDEo YOSHIda

“ Brilliant Kyoto Tour ”

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!

Hideo:
I'm very glad to receive your review. We could enjoy walking on Nnenzaka slope, Sannenzaka slope, Kiyomizuzaka slope and visit Kiyomizu Temple because you were very goold walkers, I'm sure you enjoyed Kyoto tour. I hope to see you again. Thank you, William. Best regards HIDEo YOSHIda

“ Perfect Introduction to Japan ”

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!

Hideo:
I'm very glad to receive your review. I'm sure you enjoyed Japan tour, especially Osaka and Kyoto. I hope that you are in good health. I'll see you again!! Thank you, Karly.
