“ Very Patient Guide ”

Kazuhiko was very collaborative right from the start. He helped me work on an itinerary that would suit my party of 7 pax (3 kids-11/9/7, 4 adults) and helped arrange a private van at a very reasonable cost. He has a very good grasp of the English language. He was very patient with my group and could easily adjust the timing based on the interest and strength of the participants (my 75 y/o mom was with us). When we were brought back to the hotel, he recommended interesting places around the area for us to check out on our free time. For improvement: it would be more interesting if he could add snippets of info about the area while we are in transit, or Japanese culture in general.

Kazuhiko:
Hello!! Arlyn Thank you for your email. I'm glad to receive it. I also enjoyed the tour with your nice family. I hope that this tour will become memorable tour in Japan. Moreover, I hope that I would like to guide you in Japan again. Thank you!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto

“ What a nice man! ”

We had an excellent day with Kazuhiko Goto. He adapted the 8 hour tour to our requests, substituting Nijo Castle for a temple we had already visited. In all, he got us around to visit quite a number of Kyoto's treasures. The pace and the information was excellent, all delivered with a wonderful smile.

Kazuhiko:
Hello!! Thank you for your nice message. I'm glad that you enjoyed the tour with me. I also enjoyed the tour with you. I hope that this tour will become your memorable tour. Moreover, I would like to guide you in Japan again. Please visit Japan again. Thank You!! Kazuhiko Goto

“ Very good guide with lots of knowledge, good English and humor ”

During our stay in Kyoto, Goto san was our guide for 3 days. We have seen a lot of interesting shrines and temples each with its own history. Goto san was able to share the history of the visited location and the Japanese history. Our children (6 and 8) also enjoyed the trips, especially the Nara visit with the deers and the monkey mountain at the edge of Kyoto. We used public transportation where possible and taxis when required to see the most at a reasonable price. We enjoyed his companionship, his expertise, humor, his choice for authentic lunch locations and all combined made our 3 days a memorable trip.

Kazuhiko:
Thank you for your message. I'm glad to receive it. I also enjoyed the tour witn your nice family. Moreover, this tour has became my memorable tour. I hope that you will visit Japan again and I will guide you again. Thank you so much!! Best regards, Kazuhuiko Goto

“ a day in Kyoto with Kazuhiro-san ”

I wanted to thank Kazuhiro-san again for a wonderful full day of guiding in Kyoto. We were four friends, arriving with Celebrity cruises in Kobe, and Kazu-san picked us up at the ship to bring us via train to Kyoto, where he had a taxi waiting for us. His guiding was excellent and we saw all the major attractions in Kyoto and even more than we expected. It was a long but rewarding day and we enjoyed Kazu-san's knowledge and his company. I highly recommend his service to other travelers. Thank you again for a wonderful day. Sigrid Harris

Kazuhiko:
Hello!! Thank you for your message. I also enjoyed the tour with your nice group. The tour will become my memorable tour too. I hope that I will guide you in japan again. Thank you so much!! Kazuhiko Goto
