He was a fabulous guide. Very friendly and very informative. He went out of his way to make our day special.!!!! I would use him again, and if I had know he could do other places. I would of tried to see if he was available.
Arti provided much in depth information for first timers taking the train from Tokyo which made it easy for us to purchase the right tickets and meet him at the meeting point. During the tour, he shared history and was quick to answer any questions we had. Touring with a local was an excellent experience, so different from the standard group tours and Arti brought us to shop from the source rather than souvenir shops. We totally enjoyed the tour with Arti and highly recommend him!
Akira was an excellent guide. We got to see everything that we wanted to see.
Excellent work! Everybody in the family enjoyed our tour - there was something for everybody. We've learned a lot about local culture, history and traditions. Our guide was very knowledgable and has excellent communication skills - it was very fun. Highly recommend!
Let's ride in the pure air of Mt. Fuji with the lake breeze. The experienced rider with English speaking guide license will take you to the branch roads which are known to the locals only.
