“ Kyoto day tour ”

Hiroshi is a wonderful guide! His services was excellent starting with communications before, during and after the tour! It was really worth it. He did a fantastic job showing us the sites and taking pictures too! The day was really packed and we did a lot of walking. So be prepared with comfortable shoes! Hiroshi seemed to have so much energy left at the end of the day, while we were spent! I highly recommend Hiroshi if you’re looking for a guide in Kyoto!

“ A lovely time in Kyoto ”

Hiro was perfect to assist a first-time traveller to Kyoto (and Japan) - always ready to find special interest shops or locations. He made getting around an absolute pleasure and his knowledge as a 'local' was first class. I can highly recommend Hiro!

“ Awesome guide! Funny, informative, and helps take photos with his camera! ”

We hired Hiroshi for our morning tour of Kyoto. He was very informative and funny during our tour of a couple temples and very helpful during our time in Nishiki Market. He even took photos of us with his camera and emailed the photos to us. This was great since we now have many photos of ourselves that aren’t just selfies. We will definitely hire Hiroshi again
