“ Nicely planned tour, lots of highlights in Kyoto ”

Good experience with Mari, the tour was planned well. Just sometimes the communication was a little bit hard. All in all a good time

“ She was awesome ”

Mari was very caring and friendly. She taught me where to get the one day passes. We saw the tourist areas and non tourist areas. My kids and I did food samples. She was great. My kids and I loved her energy and vibe about her.

“ Morning in Osaka ”

Our party of four met Mari for a personal tour. While Mari was good at ensuring that we saw the very best of the Cherry Blossoms, we were disappointed with her overall lack of knowledge for our questions about Japanese culture and what we were viewing.
