Toshiyo is a pleasant and knowledgeable as a private tour guide, and ultimately made our Kyoto stay very memorable. We had a great time visiting the must see places as we only spent 2days there. And also brought us to the nice restaurant at Arashiyama. Thank you.
Outstanding, she catered to our needs with two small girls. Thank you so much for showing us around the town, a must if you've never been to Kyoto before. We would have given up fighting the crowd if it were not for her.
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.
