“ Osaka City Tour ”

This is my 2nd time with Tour Guide Ai San. Very accommodating! Thank you Ai San.

Ai:

Dear Irene, Thanks for writing me a review. Since my MBA thesis is about customer satisfaction of my tours, feedback is really helpful, not only for my job, but also for my graduate study. I will try to improve my service and photography skills. Hope to see you and your guests again in the near future. Your guide, photographer, and friend, Ai

“ Excellent tour guide for Kyoto, enjoyed our trip very much! ”

Ai is a very knowledgeable and experienced tour guide in Japan, we choose a day trip to Kyoto, she picked us up from our Osaka hotel and traveled to Kyoto with us. During the day, she managed to take us to all of the must see sites. We also had an amazing meal for lunch, and Ai took very professional photos for us throughout the day. Her English is excellent and personality very bubbly and fun. Ai didn't feel like a tour guide but rather a trusted friend showing us her beloved city, we didn't feel rushed or time constrained, but rather took detours and lengthened our tour in Kyoto by ending up in a very special shrine festival. Highly recommend Ai as your next guide in Japan!

Ai:

Dear David, Thanks for writing me a great review. Since I have been studying hard during the Golden Week Holidays, our adventure to fresh green Kyoto with an annual festival bonus really made my day.🌿 Since Japan will host your favorite sport events, please come back again in the future. I will welcome you two as real friends next time. Thank you very much once again. your guide, photographer, and new friend in Japan, Ai

“ Two wonderful days in Kyoto ”

As a party of 6 with 2 young boys and two octogenarians it’s hard to know how best to curate a trip in one of the worlds prettiest cities with more UNESCO world heritage sites than most! Step in Ai. From the moment we met her we felt comfortable that she was able to judge and meet our needs. Her English is first class, her knowledge of Kyoto (operational and historical) excellent but of most significance is her sensitivity to our needs both in terms of sightseeing and of shopping/ eating etc. She was patient and able to adapt as the day went on based on the children’s concentration span and the fatigue of the more mature. If you needed a bonus..... she comes equipped with her camera and is an award winning photographer. She is unobtrusively constantly on the go getting an amazing mix of... read more

Ai:

Thanks for writing such a long, detailed, and excellent review! It was a great pleasure to have a warm, kind, elegant, well-mannered, and well-educated family. Hope your super-smart and curious children will study in Japan as exchange students, and become great parents like you and your grand parents. Please keep in touch, and do let me know the next time you come back to Japan! your guide, photographer, and new friend, Ai

“ Terrific afternoon in and around Gion! ”

We’re so happy we booked with AI! My husband and I and our two daughters (ages 5 and 10) are visiting Japan from NY, and had just under 2 days in Kyoto. Ai was enthusiastic, positive, and flexible, showing us all around Yasaka Hill, Kiyomizu temple, and surrounding areas in Gion. She was lovely with the girls and they really enjoyed spending time with her. We made frequent stops for snacks, souvenirs, and photo taking, and AI helped us with all the transactions and took tons of photos of our family. In fact, as an awesome bonus, AI is a photographer and took lots and lots of photos on her camera, and shared them all with us after! She even professionally edited a number of them and they are lovely and so wonderful to have. Ai clearly spent a lot of time on her own doing that, definitely go... read more

Ai:

Dear Cindy and her family, Thanks for writing such a long and nice review. Since I am an only child, it was a great experience for me to travel with cute girls and warm-hearted parents. Please keep in touch and drop me a message the next time you come back to Japan. I will definately let you know when I have a chance to study again at Columbia! Thank you very much once again. your guide & your new friend, Ai
