“ Soft spoken/knowledgeable/Good comm skills/ ”

Masatsugu demonstrated a lot of passion in showing us around Very flexible to our needs , patient and very good with all the 6 teenagers explaining them about Kyoto He designed our itinerary well but then. Was flexible to prioritize the key areas when we were running late as our group took a lot of pictures and were behind the schedule His communication with the van driver really helped us as we don’t have to worry about explaining anything. Max is a total professional considering his education and experience as a geologists and is proud of his heritage and did a wonderful Job with our group Mac we will get you again when we will be back and I will recommend you to ALL MY FRIENDS RAJEEV
