Our day with Hiroko could not have been better and met every expectation we might have had about contracting with a private guide! In advance of our trip, our email communications were seamless, and Hiroko willingly adjusted the itinerary as we requested. While together, she even took us off course to see an extra special garden above the Bamboo Forest! Having lived in the States for many years, she was able to cue us into cultural nuances we might not otherwise have been exposed to. Friendly and knowledgeable, her smiles were contagious and our day in and around Kyoto was the highlight of our 9-day trip to Japan! Arigato gozaimas Hiroko!
Dear Cris, I am deeply grateful for your generous review. It was truly my pleasure to be with intelligent, considerate and nice people like you and your family as a local guide. There are many more to see in Kyoto and its neighboring cities, so I hope that you will come visit to Japan again sometime in the future. Please give my kind regards to Quique, Julian and Lara. Sincerely, Hiroko
