Toshiyo our guide is punctual and very friendly. She is very knowledgable with the area and history of Kyoto. She is very accommodating.
Toshiyo is a terrific guide and an intelligent, lovely woman. Touring several places in Kyoto, she was knowledgeable, flexible and resourceful. We loved spending time with her and hearing about her high school year spent in Ohio. What a brace young woman! On our next trip to Kyoto, we definitely hope to see Toshiyo.
We are so glad to have Toshiyo to show us what we cannot see on ourprevious 3-days tour with *******: Toshiyo took us to Fushimi inari and the geikkenken sake museum then to Kiomizu dera temple and shopping areas and 2 more famous shrines that we cannot do without her expertise . She is very accommodating and plan everything perfectly to meet our request and time. Thanks Toshiyo.
Thanks for organizing the itinerary and pre booked the restaurant for lunch ( the best Soba restaurant )
Toshiyo did a wonderful job helping us decide how to best share Kyoto with our family (three boys aged 6-10). Despite some significant rain/cold weather, Toshiyo helped teach us about the great history of Kyoto's temples, shared one of her favorite soba restaurants with us, and adjusted the itinerary as the day progressed to make the best of our time together. She did a wonderful job!
