Customer Reviews for Nara Tours

    Serene ( Singapore )

    Our driver was punctual, warm and funny. Together with our tour guide which we got through Triple Lights as well, we really had a memorable and enjoyable trip. The van was new and clean. We were pleasantly surprised to get bottled water, umbrellas, wet tissues - all provided in the van. Last but not least, the free wifi kept everyone happy in the van! view more

    We had a great November 23 tour with Yoshie. His breadth of knowledge about the sites really enhanced our appreciation of what we were seeing. Yoshie is a very personable, friendly chap who clearly enjoys people and explaining Japanese history and culture. The primary reason for our trip to Japan this time was to see the autumn colours, and we were definitely not disappointed. We strongly recommend Yoshie as your guide! view more

    Kazuhiko did a lot of preparation work for my fairly specialized objectives, and our email correspondence before our day together was quite productive. He was pleasant company, too, and knew all the transportation connections to reach my two widespread objectives in Nara, Horyu-ji and the Kasugayama Primeval Forest preserve. view more

    Masako is a great guide to have. She contacted us beforehand to ask if we had any special requests and picked us up and dropped us off in our hotel. She is very knowledgeable about Nara and we had a wonderful day with her. view more

    It was really a very good tour with Masaki. So much wealth of knowledge and my kids appreciated each story he has to tell regarding the site we have been to. Masaki really took care of us...making sure we are all ok in each train ride and very mindful of our needs. He even helped us in ordering food😊. We will never forget Masaki...we will recommend him to our friends and definitely come back to Japan. view more

    Fran ( United States )

    Despite the rain on our visit, Masaki was able to make our trip to Kyoto a very unique experience. On day one we toured 6 beautiful temples by taxi. On the second day we ventured by train down to Nara to experience 2 additional temples, the national park and enjoy delicious noodles. On day 3, he took us on a beautiful walking tour of the river to see the Cherry Laurels turning, followed by a coffee and dessert. His historical background was a terrific asset and provided us a deeper understanding... view more

    Excellent and friendly guide. Very knowledgeable on all the sights. view more

    Livia ( United States )

    Makoto is a fantastic guide. He was funny, energetic, interesting, and spoke great English (he lived in the US for 10+ years.) We had so much fun on his tour. Makoto (actually, he goes by “Mac”) lives in Nara so he knows the area inside out. We saw so many beautiful temples and gardens that I would have completely missed if I just walked around with a Lonely Planet book. We fed the deer, marvelled at beautiful samurai swords and gigantic ceremonial drums, and even saw the piano that Einstei... view more

    Nancy ( United States )

    We had a wonderful walking tour of Nara during our recent cruise of Japan. Masaki is a fantastic guide. He was so helpful and patient, sending us explicit instructions on how to take the train from Kobe--complete with pictures. Nara is beautiful, and Masaki was very informative, answering our many questions. He took us to a wonderful little restaurant for an authentic Japanese lunch. I had also asked if he could recommend a restaurant in Kobe where we could get Kobe beef, and he actually went th... view more

    We had a very enjoyable half day Nara city tour with Akira. He was prompt in meeting us and gave us excellent instructions on how to get from Kobe to Nara. We got to see all the best things in Nara on our short visit and would recommend Akira to others thinking about a private guide view more
