“ Sake, Temples, Food & Shrines ”

I booked Richard based on his excellent reviews and I am pleased to say all my expectations were well and truly exceeded. Richard developed a custom itinerary for a tour of Osaka that gave my partner and I the chance to soak up a little bit of the culture while also eating and drinking like locals. It is noteworthy that locals remarked that we’d managed to visit a number of key areas of Osaka in a relatively short time. Richard is a knowledgeable, likable guide who is able to anticipate your needs and adapt the tour to give you the best experience. As someone from a western culture, he’s uniquely positioned to highlight local customs and points of difference that are particularly interesting to visitors. Richard has a wicked sense of humour and is generous with his advice about places to eat and things to do while in the Osaka area. My partner and I had a fantastic time with Richard and I can recommend him without any hesitation. We will be booking another tour with Richard the next time we are in Osaka!

Richard:

Thank you Kieren. You are seriously going to brave another tour with me? You are indeed the one with the wicked sense of humor! Your mastery of sake tasting knows no bounds!!!! LOL I am so happy you had a good time and I look forward to our next meeting!!
