“ Excellent tour of Kumamoto ”

Ikue was excellent. She brought us to many places in Kumamoto within the 4 hours that we had. The gardens were beautiful and she treated us to a local sweet potato snack just outside the gardens. She also took us to a good vantage point to see the Kumamoto castle. As the castle is closed for renovations, we walked around the castle and also went to an arts and crafts centre by the castle. Ikue is knowledgable and gave interesting insights into the history of Kumamoto.

“ A wonderful experience ”

Ikue is an amazing guide. Fluent in English, knowledgeable, efficient, kind and accommodating, she took me to some wonderful places I wouldn't have visited on my own, provided me with a lot of information and made sure I tasted the local specialties. I just wish she could be my guide in other parts of Japan as well. I highly recommend her.

THOUGH WAS ONLY 4 HOURS TOUR, IKUE HAD GIVEN A GOOD N INFORMED TOUR OF NAGASAKI . SHE IS ALSO A GOOD AND THOUGHTFUL GUIDE . WILL NOT HESITATE TO USE HER SERVICE AGAIN. ALSO NEED TO MENTION THE LADY DRIVER ( UNFORTUNATELY DID NOT GET HER NAME ) WAS THE MOST ENTHUSIASTIC AND HELPFUL DRIVER . SHE RISKED HER LIFE TO TAKE SCENIC PICTURE FOR US. SHE ALSO TREATED US WITH THE SWEETEST WATER MELON IN NAGASAKI

“ Custom Kumamoto 1-Day Tour ”

After spending the whole day with Ikue, I found myself wishing she would be available to guide me in other parts of Japan. We learned a lot from her re: Japanese history and culture, and also about the Kyushu way of life.
