“ Informative, fun and overall incredible experience! ”

My 28 year old daughter and I came to Japan From the US for a 6 day holiday and had many guides to choose from. Richard was an awesome guide and took us around the Kyoto area to experience Japan from a perspective different than Tokyo. His knowledge of the countrY’s history, people and culture is brilliant and has a great way to deliver the information as a story teller. You can tell guiding is his passion and it comes through every step of the way. His itinerary that he made for us was just the right amount of activity and perfectly executed. A truly good guy and a guide my daughter and I will use again!! We are going to refer friends for sure. Make your plans around this man’s availability. It’s worth it! Thank you Richard!

Richard:

Thank you Damian, you and Christiana were a treat! Glad you got to finally get out of Tokyo on one of your trips, so please make sure Osaka is also on your itinerary next time! Especially for the sake!!! LOL Please be safe on your way home and if there is anything I can ever do for you, please let me know. Kind regards, Richard
