“ Excellent tour! ”

I booked Hiro on short notice for a 4-hour tour with my family in Kyoto. He was very responsive in communicating ahead of time via the website and even accommodated my last-minute schedule change request the night before our tour. The tour was wonderful! Hiro planned an easy route and prepared us for what to expect (for example, needing exact change for our bus fare). He made smart use of public transit to keep extra costs down, and the route was well-planned. He kept track of us when we wandered in the crowded areas and slowed his pace when we would linger--Hiro is obviously an experienced guide. He was knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited and answered all our questions. I appreciated Hiro's flexibility and knowledge of the local sites. We had a great time and took some beautiful photos (Hiro took pics for us too)--I highly recommend Hiroyuki!


Dear Stephanie, I appreciate your very favorable review on the tour with me. I was afraid a harsh tour in the cold rain on a windy day in the early morning when I got up on the day. However it became a calm day without rain and everything went smoothly thanks to you. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the tour although it was a short time. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Please give my best regards to Ralph,Virginia and Patrick. Best regards, Hiroyuki Fukui
