“ Excellent guide ”

Eric was a fantastic guide. Being from the city, he was both knowledgeable about the sites in Kyoto and extremely kind as well. He helped us schedule our day and provided us with recommendations for restaurants and other activities for the rest of our time in Kyoto. Additionally, he took our booking one day in advance after our other cancelled. Highly recommend.

“ Kyoto&Nara ”

We had a great time with Eric. We visited Funishi-Inari, and Nara (Todai-ji temple and Nara Park) in the morning, after we had lunch together in Kyoto, and visited Kinkaku-ji and Arashiyama area (including bambo grove and Tenryu-ji temple and garden) in the evenig. As we had time and we our Hotel was located in Gion area, he showed also Pontocho and Gion before finishing the tour. Even if it was a rainny day, we followed exactly the agenda, he was very kind and professional. The best part of trip is that we saw magnificient and distinct places, but also we learnt a lot about Japanese history, culture, religion and behavior. Thanks Eric!


Hi Mr Francisco Thank you for your comments and I enjoyed your with you Please appreciate beautiful Japan and I wish if the day in Mt Fuji will be a fine day Eric Tanaka

“ Family Private tour of Kyoto ”

We only had one full day in Kyoto and decided the best thing for our party of 9 was to arrange a private tour. We had a terrific day with Eric. He met us at our hotel and took us on a day trip covering the highlights of Kyoto. We were able to personalise the tour as one family had been to Kyoto before. Eric was patient, happy and knowledgeable and kept the 5 teenagers entertained . Eric arranged public transport passes which allowed us to travel easily by train and bus to visit the various sites. Our tour lasted 7 hours. I would highly recommend Eric to friends or others considering a private tour. I thought the cost of the day per person was very reasonable.


Ms Jullian Thank you for your comments for my guide tour I am very happy to hear from you that you had a good time in Kyoto I wish if you will enjoy Kanazawa Hakuba and Tokyo Eric Tanaka
