“ Kyoto with Tomoe ”

I was fortunate to have visited Kyoto with my Mother (80yrs) and my Daughter (15yrs) in early October. I booked Tomoe to guide us to many wonderful areas in and around Kyoto including: Kinkakuji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Arashiyama monkey park and a lovely morning of shopping in the Sannenzaka area dressed in traditional Kimono. Tomoe also generously shared her favourite temple with us, a beautiful, tranquil temple set in peaceful gardens. Tomoe carefully curated tours for us each day which highlighted the beauty of Kyoto. Tomoe was effortlessly able to ensure the needs of my vegetarian Mother and my teenage Daughter were met with no difficulty at all. We were expertly guided through ticket queues, public transport and advised on the best place to stand for the perfect holiday photos. Tomoe also advised us on which lovely local delicacies to buy. When we unfortunately had to depart a day early to avoid Typhoon Hagabis, Tomoe directed us to the most reliable way to the airport and kindly stayed with us until the bus left, ensuring our safe departure. I can highly recommend Tomoe as a kind, thoughtful and funny travel guide.

TOMOE:

Dear Samantha, Thank you sooo much for your warmhearted review!!! Even though 3 weeks have passed since I saw you leave for Kansai International Airport, I still remember my happy time as if it happened yesterday. Soon after I met you for the first time, I could feel as if you were one of my best friends or my sister. That's why you are such a nice and attractive person! Three days I spent with you became one of my most precious memories as a guide. I like your mother and daughter, too. They always made me feel relaxed. I'm very sorry that you had to give up the last part of your trip due to the coming typhoon, and I do hope that someday will come when I can guide you to Nara!!! I miss you so much...Thank you so much for finding me and choosing me as your guide. TOMOE
