“ Highlight of Kyoto Trip! ”

We wouldn’t have been able to see as many areas nor be as efficient on the train without Kazu! He was an AMAZING tour guide! He also was very accommodating with our large party and understanding with a baby on board. Kazu was also very personable, showed us very interesting sites, and even tried to get us an earlier train since we finished a little early because of the baby! Highly recommended guide; Kazu was the best tour guide we’ve ever had!?

“ Kyoto Group Tour ”

We were in Koyoto for the day and had requested Kazu's help to visit 4 sites (Fushimi Inari-Taisha, Bamboo Forest, Ginkakuji and Kyomizu Temple) which required buses and trains, as they were located in various directions. Kazu, kept us on target and delivered what was promised and more by taking to Gion, we were all impressed! There was loads of walking and Kazu really set the pace, which we enjoyed. Kazu, thank you for an awesome day in Kyoto.

“ Kyoto’s perfect day ”

Kazu was fantastic!!! He made all the difference to us visiting Kyoto’s most important temples. Kazu knows a lot about Japan history and also about it’s religious context, and he was very generous on sharing this knowledge with us. He’s also diligent on preparing in advance the perfect route to our tour, once we’d asked him about too many spots for a short period of time. Moreover, he’s a wonderful person and we felt like we got a friend.

“ Knowledgeable and easy to get along with ”

Kazuhiko was very organised, and along with his great sense of humour, he introduced us to the wonders of Kyoto. We appreciated being shown how to use the buses and trains and managed to see and do so much in one day. He also took the time to outline more sights for us to explore during the rest of our visit as well as outling the routes to take. Thank you Kazuhiko, you were great company.
