“ 2 day tour from Tokyo to Kyoto ”

It was our first visit to Japan and we were a little daunted by the language barrier as we only speak English at home. We are from Australia and were looking forward to our upcoming holiday in Japan when we decided to find out if we could get a guide to assist us early in our trip. That way we hopefully would have a grasp of how to use the train system in Japan along with any information for interacting with the locals. Yuki was a great guide for us and he was very freindly, helpful and patient with our two kids, particularly our 3 year old as the days could be quite long for the little ones. We found Yuki on Triplelights and we could not have been happier with another guide. Yuki was professional , punctual and very friendly. Yuki was very good and keeping us updated on his travel itinerary that he made up for us over the two days we selected to be with him, providing us with clear guides on where we would be going to visit, how we would be getting there along with prices for each activity planned so we knew the prices upfront. We were happy with the locations Yuki selected for our family to see so we felt no need to change anything. It was very helpfull being with Yuki for us as we would have struggled trying to buy tickets for the bullet train or any of the trains really as we needed to be comfortable using those to get around Tokyo and the other cities we were wanting to see. Yuki picked us up from our hotel lobby in Tokyo the day after we landed and from there we had a taxi ride to Tokyo train station where Yuki showed us how to buy an IC card and also purchase tickets on the bullet train to Kyoto. A number of hours later we arrived at Kyoto where we went on to visit several great locations including the Bamboo Forrest, Sanjusangen-Do Temple, Fushimi Shrine, Kinkaku-Ji Temple, Nijo Castle and a Maiko show. Yuki went into detail at each location talking about the local history and talked about the local customs and specific details for what we were looking at in each of those locations. For dinner Yuki took us to a fantastic resutrant showcasing Japanese food, where our 10 year old son was brave enough to eat Sashimi which he enjoyed. The whole experience was great and memorable. Overall I would recommend Yuki to anyone thinking of a guide to use, he was great and definitely left a great impression with our family, our 3 year old still points to Yuki in the photos we took and giggles saying his name and our 10 year old son also speaks fondly of Yuki. Thanks for the time you spent with us Yuki All the very best
