Mari was very communicative and accommodating to many requests, and she did a great job guiding!
From the start of our day to the end, Mari was terrific! She was right on time and off we went. Mari has a wonderful, easy-going manner that made us very comfortable. She was extremely knowledgeable of every site we visited throughout the entire day and gave us options as we continued our journey through Kyoto. She found a very small restaurant, for lunch, where the food was tasty, the service great, and the atmosphere cozy. Mari also gave us a couple of possible recommendations for dinner that were near our hotel. We took her advice and enjoyed some of the best Ramen in Kyoto in a restaurant that seated only 11 people.

In addition, she was great in navigating the train system and helping us get to the city we were visiting without any trouble. Mari helped us visit some of our Japanese relatives, served as a translator, and helped us in general understanding the... read more
