“ Fun time in Osaka ”

We are a family of 4, with 2 teenagers on our first trip to Japan. Fumi showed us the highlights of Osaka on our day tour. First, she took us to Osaka castle. It was hot that day with little shade, so Fumi helped purchase our tickets while we waited under a shaded spot. She is very kind, knowledgeable and friendly. She was also very patient as we walked through the museum floors of the castle. She then showed us the popular shopping areas. The Kuromon market was very interesting. The entire place was very busy. She took us to a great place for lunch and helped us shop. Fumi took the time to ask if we were looking for anything specific and we did. Our son was looking for a particular store and she was able to find it for us. We would highly recommend her for any tour.

“ Day tour of Kyoto ”

Fumi was a fantastic guide for the day, spoke excellent English and organised a diverse and interesting itinerary for our tour of Kyoto. Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed the day and I would not hesitate to recommend Fumi to others. She was also incredibly helpful in giving us detailed and clear instructions on seeing other sites that we were not able to fit into our day tour.

Fumi was a wonderful guide who showed us the Higashiyama District during our stay. She was able to schedule a tea ceremony at our request which was a perfect serene ending to our afternoon! She was very patient with our questions and knowledgeable of the history of Kyoto. We truly enjoyed our day! Thank you Fumi!
