My wife and 3 year old boy were treated to a highlights tour of Kyoto, communication was prompt even if we book less than 24 hours before, Hiro-san was very knowledgeable and was prompt, he managed to accomodate our requests like changing the itinerary and changing our Shinkansen tickets. He also gave us options for transport and food. He was kind hearted and our son adored him.
My wife and I were so happy to have Hiroshi as a guide. We learnt so much. He knew so much detail. We had a really fun day.
Hiroshi was an awesome guide. He was very knowledgeable and made our tour really interesting. He went over and above - and helped us with taking photos and obtaining transport cards and our dietary allergies, and many other pieces of information which made travelling in Japan so much easier. It was a pleasure to spend the day with this wonderful man!
Hiroshi was AMAZING! We have used tour guides all over the world and Hiroshi was our FAVORITE hands down. He gives you the history and is so naturally funny that you laugh all day!
Hiro(shi) really knows his town, the sites to see, how to get there efficiently, and everything you want to know about them. We had an amazing day in spite of issues with public transportation. Would definitely recommend using Hiro to give you a tour in Kyoto!
