“ Osaka and Kyoto Tours ”

It’s our first time and first day in Japan. We are so lucky that Shin-san is our tour guide! He is an excellent, courteous, knowledgeable, and amazing guide! He is highly organized, he called and even sent me an email the day before our tour. He even provided us the Plan/flowchart of the train schedule and helped us with the money exchange. We visited so many places in one day on Kyoto: The Golden Temple and Arashiyama Bamboo Forest. In Osaka: The Osaka-jo Castle and Dotombori. We could have not asked for anything more, “we’ve got the best tour guide and the group were very, very happy!😊🤗👋

SHIN:

Dear Angelina san and all beautiful friends, Thank you very much for your awesome nice review ! On a single day quick tour visiting Kyoto and Osaka, we chose most famous four landmarks, Golden temple, Arashiyama bamboo grove, Osaka-jo castle, Dotombori food street. So,, I really appreciate your patient and positive cooperation all the way despite I always let you get rushed like a bullet-like train driver. Please have a good time and relax on a cruiser too. Our tour is like just one page of my life. But I can say I will keep it mind forever by shining my tour guide life. Maraming salamat and Arigato gozaimashita ! SHIN

“ SHIN RATES AT MORE THAN 100% ”

Shin is the perfect guide, who will go the extra mile for you, and I really mean it. He is totally devoted to his work, sympathetic and truly helpful. He accompanied us from Kyoto to Osaka, and not only made us visit Osaka as agreed, he even helped us carry our luggage, helped us find transportation to the airport for the day after, suggested and even showed us restaurants for dinner. Hire Shin ... you will not regret it. Pierre

SHIN:

Dear Pierre san. Thank you very much for nice comment. But I think it is more than I deserve. I feel so happy to be with you in Kyoto my home town and Osaka. Though our tour was only 8 hours, probably 0.001% of our life time, it must be a wonderful page of my life I will never forget. And it’s so amazing to see your wonderful painting by your wife. I’m sure she is No1 great artist of Quebec! Time flys fast. I hope your good life and happiness. Merci beaucoup et à bientôt. SHIN
