“ Patient and knowledgeable ”

Spent the day with Rick at Fushimi-Shirne and Boyoedin Area, he’s a good wealth of knowledge on both attractions. Throughly enjoyed the day with a visit to sake brewery too. I had my elderly parents with me and Rick was always mindful of their slower pace, which was great. English may not be as fluent but no major dramas in understanding each other.

Rick:

Dear Ellie, Thank you very much for your nice comment. I am glad that you and your parents enjoyed the tour and I also enjoyed talking with all of you. I suppose your entire tour in Japan was memorable one and hope I can see you again in future. Best regards, Rick

“ Prepared, engaging, and above the call of duty. ”

We had Rick be our tour guide for one day for our visit to Kyoto, throughout the day we found Rick to be very excellent. Using public transportation, Rick expertly guided us through the highlights of Kyoto, giving us peace of mind and deeper insight into the locations we visited. Most notably was his knowledge and preparedness of the places we went to, for instance having a graphic presentation for every detail in Nijo-jo castle. After the bulk of the tour, Rick found us a great spot for dinner, and even as it was late he offered to guide us back to our hotel. We wholeheartedly enjoyed our time with Rick as our tour guide in Kyoto and definitely recommend his services.

Rick:

Dear Tim, Thank you very much for your nice comments. I was glad to be with you and your family members on that day. All your members were so nice and I enjoyed the touring and the dinner, too. I suppose your tours in Hakone and Tokyo were also nice and successful. Please come back to Kyoto in future and I hope I can guide you again. Best regards, Rick

“ Day trip to Ugi and Nara ”

We spent a wonderful day with Rick. First he went out of his way to help us reserve our train tickets for our time in Japan! Then we continued on our way to see Ugi and Nara! He was a terrific guide, easy to be with and very flexible. We highly recommend Rick.

Rick:

Dear Patricia, Thank you very much for your nice comment. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour to Uji and Nara. I also enjoyed being with you and having nice conversations, lunch and so on. It was my pleasure to have assisted you to purchase the tickets for the rest of the tour at Kyoto station. I suppose everything went well after you left Kyoto. Please take care yourself after the long trip and I hope I can guide you again in Kyoto in future. Best regards, Rick

Rick:

Dear Frank, Thank you very much for your comment. I was glad that I had assisted you on your first day in Japan ! We had a very good time in Kyoto with nice conversation and the tour went nicely thanks to your cooperation. I suppose your whole trip in Japan was successful and I hope I will be able to help you again in Kyoto in future. Best regards, Rick
