“ A true Hero guide ”

We had 4 hours food tour in Osaka. He was very flexible making himself available as i misunderstood the booking and he immediately came to our hotel and made the tour with us. He is expert in fish and explained us all different fish Kinds. He was very nice and fulfilled all our wishes and answered our questions. He was vet care taking. We could also speak German with him. we highly recommend him and wish him all the best with his PhD.

Hero:

“ Day in Kyoto with Hiro! ”

We decided to get a guide in Kyoto, after arriving to Japan a week earlier after leaving Tokyo. Being from the US, and not speaking the language, it was quite overwelming the first few days, with my wife and two young adult children 18 and 20. We got in touch with Hiro, he responded quickly, asked us what we would like to see and do. We wanted to see Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu temple and eat some local food. He met us the next day right on time, and we were off. He decided the bus system and some short walks was the best way to get around that day, so we were off. He spoke great english , so communication was no problem. We toured the sights, he gave some great explainitions of some of the history of the sites, showed us some great spots around the city which only could be found be a local, ... read more

Hero:

Thank you writing great review! It was nice to meet you in Kyoto! All of your family were kind and friendly for me. So I could enjoy guiding a lot too. I was happy to introduce your family about Japanese local knowledge not only historical knowledge. And when I tried to find your ancestor root, it was like detect treasure from few information. I also enjoyed a lot for helping you. I hope I can go fishing at your fancy pond and see your fancy cars!! All the best for your family!! Cheers!!

“ beyond Expectations! ”

Hero is a delightful young man. His knowledge of history and current events is exceptional. He guided us through the stalls of the food market identifying and describing the exotic offerings. He is a true foodie! My husband was very anxious over purchasing and navigating the confusing {to us} train terminal for our very early departure the following morning. Hero took us there. Purchased the correct tickets needed and walked us to the gate where we would need to depart. When we ended the tour at our hotel, he met with the concierge to make sure our taxi would be instructed to drop us at the correct entrance! He even checked with us the next morning to find out if were were having any problems! On top of it all , he has a wonderful sense of humor! What more can one ask for?

Hero:

I am proud of be able to guide you as your wedding anniversary. Thank you very much for sweet review!I was happy to introduce Japanese emperor histories and Japanese garden styles. In addition thank you for listening my knowledge with a lot of curiosity. Yes, we have strange food custom in Japan. And I appreciate you tried to understand exotic wired Japanese foods somehow. I hope you could find the reason why Japanese ancestor could not satisfy normal seafood cooking way and started having law fishes. I hope to see you someday in Japan or USA again!! Hug!!
