Mari was awesome! Especially since we were probably the worst group! First of all, we booked it so late! We only started talking to her 2 days before our planned trip, and she still accommodated us. Also, we had many requests that she was able to accommodate as well. 1. She helped us book a private van for 4 on very short notice, and it was a relatively good price too. 2. I mentioned that my mother and father can't walk too far, as they are quite old. She was able to come up with a great itinerary with not too much walking, and then she asked the driver to drop us off and pick us up in areas that would reduce the walk. That was very helpful of her. She was very pleasant, spoke great English and was overall a great guide to be with. I wish we booked her longer than just half a day. We would definitely try to book her as a guide again next time we're in Japan. Thank you so much Mari for a great experience and hope to see you again soon! :D
Mari was friendly and cheerful. She tried to be on the lookout for elderly accessible services like elevators and escalators. Arranged a very nice Kobe beef lunch for all of us. She tried to ensure that we leave with the Japanese experience of the origami - paper folding and showed us how Sake is made traditionally. Also made sure we got on the correct train back to Osaka Namba although I myself almost got on the wrong one! Thanks.
Marie is cool, respectful, assertive, patient and very accommodating
Our tour is going very well as of now. Mary is very good guide we enjoyed the lunch that Mary booked for us
We were wanting to see as much as possible in Kyoto and Osaka during our limited time in Japan. Mari was great to work with and navigated us through to see as many things as possible in the 10 hour period. At the end of the tour she guided us to our last stop at the Umeida Sky tower. From there we took a taxi because the subway was too complicated for us :-). Thanks to Mari from my daughter and I for great memories on our tour!
Our family was a group of 8 people with very old and very young members so it was a nightmare to bring them to the same pace and ensure that we complete a full day itinerary. But Mari was very patient and mindful. She adjusted the tour at Kitano, originally she intended to bring us to a house on top of a hill but seeing the difficulty of the older family members to navigate the steep hill she brought us instead to 2 legacy houses that were near each other. She also patiently waited for the members of the group when they were late and looked for the young ones when they didn't make it on time to the meeting place. She was like a mother to all of us. Thank you Mari!
