Rumiko is extremely helpful! She provided recommendations on hotels prior to the trip and even help make reservations for bus tickets for our trip to Nagoya! She put in lots of effort to plan for our itinerary as we were towing a 5 year old boy for the trip. She ensured that our two days with her were fun enough for adults and kid - she prepared quizzes and stories about the places of interest to keep our little one engaged throughout the two days. She is very knowledgeable about the history of Gifu and Nagano and Japan in general. Wonderful guide and strongly recommend her for anyone who wishes to have a good guide.
We had a wonderful experience in Nagoya with Rumiko as our guide. She came in very prepared and made sure my kids will enjoy and learn a lot of things about the places we visited. She surely knows how to entertain kids, elderly and us. Overall, she made our tour worthwhile and fun. I will definitely recommend her to my friends and relatives visiting Nagoya.
As I have to work, my wife and 2 boys have Rumiko for 2 days in Nagoya. It was the most wonderful experience to have Rumiko to take you around Nagoya. The boys truely enjoyed themselves and keep talking about it when they are back at the hotel. Rumiko has made a wonderful day for my wife and 2 boys. Deeply appreciate for all arrangement . Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Excellent, knowledgeable guide. Our hike was one of our highlights of our trip. Pace was just right, stories intriguing.
With Rumiko, we had an excellent walking tour of the old Nagano in Kiso Valley featuring historic residences, museum and towns. Rumiko's commentary and knowledge of the area added much to the experience. We enjoyed our tour with Rumiko and will be booking others through TripleLights in our future travels to Japan.
