I researched several private tour guides while planning my trip to Kyoto. Naoko was the best option out of all the guides I looked into. She made the process very easy. Naoko was quick to reply to emails and provided answers to all my questions. I really appreciated how efficient the tour was. She provided great recommendations and helped create an unforgettable day in Kyoto. Naoko was awesome! She spoke great english and was easy to communicate with. I really appreciated how polite and friendly she was. We had a great time seeing the sights and enjoying the local eats. I highly recommend Naoko.
