“ Best visit to Kyoto with Katsuko ”

We booked a customized tour with Katsuko for Kyoto day tour. From the first time I contacted her through TripleLights website, she was prompt in her responses and with helpful suggestions. It was amazing to have an expert in Kyoto history and sights to guide us throughout the day. She knew the best places to get the best photos. I highly recommend her for the tour of Kyoto. I wish she was coming with us to Tokyo to show us around there as well!

Katsuko:

“ Enjoyable day ”

We were very lucky to have Katsuko as our tour guide. We communicated with her prior to our tour and she was able to plan our day to see the sites we wanted to see. She was punctual, organized and informative. Katsuko was very knowledgeable about the history of each site. She checked in with us regularly to see how we were doing. We really enjoyed our lunch at an excellent restaurant on the Philosoher’s trail.
