“ 3 Days Touring, Osaka, Kyoto, and Hiroshima ”
Richard was fantastic! We originally booked Richard for a full day tour of Osaka and Kyoto, and the tours were so good, we decided to arrange a 3rd day at Hiroshima with Richard, luckily he was available.
I was traveling with my husband, and 2 children ages 11, and 12, plus friends of ours and their 2 children, ages 8 and 10. It was important for us that the guide was flexible and child friendly, Richard was both, he made sure that we were doing things that the children would enjoy, while also making sure the adults were happy.
The temperature was so hot during our tours, Richard made sure to make frequent stops for water, and also bathroom breaks for the kids!!! We never felt pressured to keep to the schedule, and he never rushed us at any point.
Richard was very knowledgeable of the history of the sites we visited, you could tell he has a strong love for the country. It was nice to ask a general question about the country/history/culture and get an answer.
Richard also went above and beyond, and helped us purchase train tickets to our next destination, he even called the hotel to arrange transportation for us from the train to our next hotel. He was always happy to assist!
My kids had a great time, and even said the restaurants that Richard picked were so yummy!
Next time we visit Japan we will definitely see if Richard is available, he really made our trip enjoyable!
You guys were awesome. I am so happy you had a great time and I usually do not rush people because I can't even rush myself most of the time! LOL I am happy the kids had a great time also. Please let me know whatever I can do for you in the future!
