Our family of four (including two teenage girls) had a fabulous day in Kyoto with Tomoe!! First of all, she was super with prompt communication right from the start (even before booking!), which continued right up to our tour date. She expertly planned an itinerary meeting our interests and covered our requests beginning at the Bamboo forest to the Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion) to Kiyomizu Temple and Otowa Waterfall. We also had time for a delicious soba noodle stop and explored the Gion district. We basically covered northwest to southeast Kyoto (which is a big city!) and could not have seen all that we did without her keen navigation of the area including the bus routes during a very busy season. Tomoe also knows all the best photo stops too! She dropped us off per our request at Nishiki Market and even looked up the time of the Takashimaya department store closing so we could pop in there as well. She went out of her way to jot down train times and gave great advice for our next day’s solo adventures to Nara and Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine. Tomoe was very knowledgeable about everything we saw and our family enjoyed getting to know the area as well as her life there. Tomoe is extremely kind, helpful and wants you to have the best experience possible. Our girls still talk about her! Many thanks Tomoe!!
Dear Kristina, Thank you very much for such a warmhearted and long review!! I really really enjoyed the day with you. I also talk about you with my family still now. I feel happy and glad whenever I see the picture taken with you... Meeting such nice people like you always makes me happy and inspires me a lot and you really did! That's why I like my job very much. I love your family and do hope that I can see you again. I wish I could have had much longer time with you. Thank you so much for a wonderful meeting! TOMOE
