“ Outstanding Personal Guide! ”

Our family of four was fortunate to have Shin as our personal guide. We were visiting from Hawaii and it was the first time we travelled alone to Japan. Shin offered his help immediately after we contacted him, always responding with “ask me anything (even questions outside the booking dates). He helped us reserve our seats on the Shinkansen, and even changed the time of his ticket so he could take the Shinkansen with us when we went to Tokyo. Shin’s tour was special. It was personalized to our interests and included local culture, history, and restaurants we would not have experienced without him. Shin’s English is very good. He is personable and easy to talk to and understand. He found topics of interest to make conversation with all of us. We all enjoyed Shin and he quickly became a part of our family. Shin is very thoughtful, knowledgeable, helpful, and detailed. He always kept our group together making sure no one got lost. Shin took photos for us and sent them to us at the end of the day. We appreciated his determination to help us find gifts we wanted to purchase. He read the packaging for us and made recommendations. Shin was a wonderful guide, we didn’t have to worry about anything. Shin was always thinking one step ahead to make sure everything went smoothly. Before we parted, Shin shared tips and options about getting around and drew detailed maps for us. We really appreciate Shin’s time and energy. Thank you so much Shin-san for the very special memories!

“ Five stars for SHIN! ”

Our family of four, with two younger teenagers, loved our trip to Kyoto thanks to spending two days with Shin. Shin had excellent communication with us prior to our arrival, suggesting itineraries based on our preferences. He was very experienced in the public transit system of Kyoto which facilitated getting around quite efficiently. Shin is a most considerate and thoughtful individual. He went out of his way to accommodate our travel requests. The kids absolutely loved visiting the monkeys of Arashiyama, something we wouldn’t have planned ourselves. We saw a good deal of most of the must-see sights in Kyoto. On our third day (without Shin) we experienced an earthquake in the 5.5 range. It was quite scary especially being in a country outside of our own (U.S.). Shin contacted us even though our time with him had ended, to inquire after our well-being and offered his assistance should we need it. He also helped us manage train arrangements for our next stop, Hiroshima. Suffice to say we highly recommend Shin for his expert knowledge of the area, his kind and considerate manner and overall excellence as a guide.

“ Above and Beyond ”

I presented Shin with a challenge when organising my tour by wanting a more everyday cultural experience. My initial request was very vague and wishy washy. Shin was constantly patient in working with me to come up with an itinerary. In the end we settled on a mixture of high and low culture and we packed a lot of experiences into a very fun day. Shin is very generous in his nature and keen to try to fulfill the wishes of anyone booking with him. He was very helpful about other aspects of travelling in Japan both before and after our tour. Thank you so much Shin. I look forward to booking with you again next time I am in Japan.
