“ Enriching day in Kyoto ”

The guided tour with Yasuna was a 5/5 experience. First of all, we started the day a little eariler and finished a little after. That is not obvious with guides. Secondly, Yasuna is very knowledgeable and I learned new things in all of the many different places we visited during the day. She had answers to all of my questions, and I asked a lot .. Moreover, she's very nice and friendly and it was very pleasant to spend the day with her since I'm a solo traveler. I deeply recommend choosing her for a tour, I would definitely do so again if I had the time. Enjoy Kyoto!

Yasuna:

Thank you very much, Barak! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the day with me. It encouraged me a lot! I enjoyed exploring around Kyoto with you too :-) I believe my guests can't enjoy much if I don't. Sharing fun time with people is the happiest thing as a guide. I could learn lots about your country too! It broadened my perspective. Good luck on your future. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Toda! all the best, Yasuna

“ A truly personal tour ”

I contacted several potential guides explaining that I was already on an escorted tour and that I wanted to spend my free day seeing things that were not included within my guided tour. All but Yasuna just emailed back with their "standard" "personal" tour and made no attempt to accommodate my specific requirements. Yasuna, on the other hand, immediately understood, and asked me for a list of the sort of thing I wanted to see. I gave her a very long list and she used her local knowledge to reduce the list to a "doable" schedule that was as long as possible. On the day, we both arrived early, so got started about 15 minutes before the scheduled time, and Yasuna promptly had us on the train to the first location. Getting going so early meant the first two locations were very quiet and w... read more

Yasuna:

Thanks a million for lots of lovely words! It's absolutely touching, and I actually cried with happiness. Haha. As an English guide and your local company in Kyoto, it encourages me a lot! It was fun to explore around Kyoto with you. Thank you for choosing me. I always think each guest have a different interest, and ask what you like before making an itinerary. You gave me specific list of places you want to visit, and it made it clear what you like. It helped to make a plan a lot. I'm happy to hear that the day we spent together became a memorable part of your stay. I always hope my guests will make a most of their limited time, and I want to be a good supporter. When I succeed like this time, I'm very happy. The gardens we visited were very refreshing, the perfect weather made the... read more

“ Kyoto tour ”

We are a family of four, including two girls aged 15 and 16, from the UK. We had a one day tour of Kyoto with Yasuna. She was extremely helpful beforehand in coming up with ideas for us and was very pleasant on the day. Thank you Yasuna

Yasuna:

Thank you for the kind words, James! I'm very happy to hear that as a guide. I always try to be as helpful as possible. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your stay, and see you again someday in the future. I'll improve my guiding skill more by then. Thank you very much! all the best, Yasuna

“ Day in Kyoto ”

Yasuna was punctual, didn’t mind flexibility with our schedule and led us through the day seamlessly. Her English is good and the planning of the day was efficient. As it was our first day in Japan it was nice to be able to just absorb sights and ask lots of questions without needing to figure out where we were going. She was happy to share her own stories and even left us with some paper cranes. Thanks Yasuna!

Yasuna:

Thank you, Seema! Your words encouraged me a lot! I actually enjoyed the tour with you! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your first day in Japan. It was lovely weather and we were lucky to see some cherry blossoms! I'm looking forward to seeing you again next time. kind regards, Yasuna
