“ Wonderful day tour in Kyoto ”

Great full day tour of Kyoto with Hiroshi as our guide. We got to visit all the attractions we wanted to see. His commentaries gave us a better understanding of Japan, its culture and history of the places visited. Hiroshi is a friendly and knowledgeable guide. He went above and beyond by taking our photos, printing and sending them to our home address overseas at no extra cost. We really enjoyed the tour, thanks again Hiroshi, you've treated us more like your friends, not just your customers and we really appreciate that. See you again when we're in Kyoto next time. Truly worth the money to take a private tour, for us this worked out to be about the same price as for seat-in-coach tour so we opted for the private tour guide as we could choose the sites I wanted to visit, when to stop, where to eat, etc. Highly recommended!

“ A rich experience! ”

He is honest person and provides good introduction to the places that we visited. In addition, he lead us to nice food during our way. He knows where to take good photos and offered his guidance on how to go around Osaka on my own. My family are grateful for his time with us. Thanks Ricky Singapore

Dear Ricky Thank you Mr.Ricky for your heartfelt reviews on your tour on Nov,17. I always feel so happy when I guide such a happy family like you to the traditinal and charming city in Kyoto, thank you. Best Regards Dec 3,2016 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Kyoto Highlights ”

This was the first time we used the services of a guide so we were not too sure what to expect. On meeting Hiroshi (at our hotel) he was friendly and an instantly likeable person. We knew then we would enjoy the day. We saw more of Kyoto than we could have seen by ourselves in a day, and learnt more about Japanese culture and customs. Spoken English was good. From our perspective, it was great to have someone else lead the way and show and explain things to us. The photos he took for us with his camera were great. ( Just make sure you have a dropbox, cloud location or laptop so he can give you the photos)

Dear John I feel really grateful to you for the review you have given to me. I feel a bit embarrassed when I read your review of your two day tour with me in Kyoto and Nara because you praised me so much concerning my guidance skills. Your nice reviews encourage me a great deal , thank ypu. Best Regards Nov 28 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ “Wonderful Tour Experience!!” ”

We spent 2 days with our tour guide Hiroshi. Our tour covered Osaka , Kyoto and Nara! It was so nice having someone with us to help us navigate through these places. Hiroshi was very knowledgable and was helped us understand what we were seeing. Plus he was always eager to take pictures of us, which is nice since we are very rarely in vacation photos . Hiroshi recommended a great place to eat and even helped us order some delicious Japanese food. She explained everything and made sure all questions were answered. He also gave reward to those who answered his mystery questions. Again, Hiroshi did a great job we highly recommend him as your guide! We enjoyed every minute of our tours!!! Cheers to triplelights and especially to our guide Hiroshi! Arigatou gozaimasu!

Dear Nhelda Thank you Nhelda for your quick mail . I am sorry delaying to send mail for you. I am very grateful to you for your heartfelt reviews on your 2 days trip in Kyoto and Nara. As a former elementary school teather, I still have a habit of giving some kinds of questions to my guests ! I also really enjoyed guiding to all of you charming ladies for 2 days, thank you all. Best regards Nov 22,2016 Hiroshi Yokoyama

“ Amazing, knowledgeable, humble ”

We enjoyed 3 tours with Hiro-San and he did not disappoint. He is so kind, and accommodating for each person in the group. He offered to pick up and drop off, teaching our group how to take public transport, and giving great suggestions. As a retired school teacher, Hiro-San knew the history of each place we visited. He was happy to answer any questions and showed great care to know the correct answers. Very punctual, flexible, and organized. In addition to being such a wonderful guide, he was very flexible and pleasant to spend the day with. Hiro is such a great guy, a humanist, and respectable fellow. He will teach you about the Japanese values that we should all try to learn. Lastly, his guide fee is way too low for what he offers. Hiro-San should charge much more, and I would be happy to compensate him for his every effort. Choose Hiro-San for your visit to Kyoto, Nata, and Hiroshima. You will be glad you did. I don't think there is a better, more peaceful, and knowledgeable guide in all of Japan. Thank you Hiro!! We loved all three tours!!

Dear Samina Thank you Samina for your warm-hearted reviews on your three days trip in Kyoto,Nara and Hiroshima. I express heartfelt thank s to you all. To tell you the truth, I felt a bit embarrassed when I read your reviews because you praised me so much. I always feel so good when I got a mail which contains " We had a happy and so enjoyable day tour in Japan". You may amazed at to find out the truth that Buddhism and Hinduism have exerted a great influence on the spiritual life of the Japanese. Lastly, I also really enjoyed 3 days trip with you because you showed me great interest about Japanese culture and history. Best Regards Nov16,2016 Hiroshi Yokoyama
