“ Yoko - Great Tour Guide ”

We can't thank Yoko enoughg for her assistance during our one day visit to Fukuoka and as a first time user of an independent tour guide certainly consider it a better option than the expensive on shore program offered by the cruise line. General program for our three hour tour was confirmed well in advance of our arrival(party of 4 young seniors) , Yoko was at the terminal at the appointed time and had maps and other material of interest for us. We had a great time visiting temples , shrines and other places of interest-Yoko spoke excellent english , was very knowelagble of the area and took great pride in her city and what it had to offer. A bonus at the end of the tour was that Yoko found us a great Japanese restaurant and navigated us through the menu (all in Japanese) as several of ou... read more

Yoko:

Dear Peter, thank you very much for the nice comment! I was honored to be the first Japanese citizen and tour guide for you. All members of your party are cheerful and friendly that I myself enjoyed the tour very much. Your stay in Fukuoka was the right time when we had a lively atmosphere of Yamakasa festival. I hope you found it interesting because the festival is the symbol of our culture. Above all, I really appreciate you invited me to your lunch in the end of the tour, which was so generous, and I was so happy to be part of your group. I hope you come back to Japan again in the future!! Thank you very much for the great opportunity.

“ Two great fun and exhilarating days ”

We found Yoko to be very friendly and knowledgeable about Fukuoka and Nagasaki. We enjoyed our time with her and the effort she made to guide us using the local transportation. When she noticed some members of our party exhibiting some mobility difficulty she started finding stairs and elevators for us to use. When we were confused and not quite sure we could make it back to the ship, she took extra time to make sure we got there by accompanying us. She helped my wife find a "hapi coat" that mine son wanted and she even got us to the English Mass in Nagasaki on time on day two. Aside from all of the information we got, as we were walking toward the shopping center, we crossed a bridge over a river. On the next bridge behind us was a group of bridesmaids and groomsmen waiting for the... read more

Yoko:

Dear Steven, thank you very much for the warm comment on the tour! I really appreciate the specific feedback telling me what points you liked about the tour. All members in your group are so kind and friendly to me from the beggining, and showed their interest on what I said during the tour. I myself enjoyed the tour over two days thanks to your corporation. Say, as you mentioned it, we were so lucky that the scene of the newly-wed couple on a boat made a highlight of the tour. It was an unexpected exciting moment, wasn't it? And thank you for the opportunity to participate in English Mass which is an extraordinary event for me. I've learnt a lot from you and your members through the coversation over two days. Thank you very much again for giving me the opportunity, and I hope you come b... read more
