“ Professional and informative tour guides ”

The night Gion tour was the best and very interesting. details of history of temples and Garden areas interesting. Pleasant and very accomodating. Be aware the total cost of tour is higher if guide travels with you anywhere except a walking tour. Our evening tour was a fixed price however we used our JR passes for Nara and had been asked by guide to pay for her transportation. It was a little on the spot as I thought this was included in her tour price her own transportation. in our case it was close to 20.00 U.S. higher we paid her directly as we had to pay for all her transportation not just the local bus we all took while touring outside of our JR passes. She was very very helpful in helping us make reservations back on our bullit train not realizing it was a holiday. Very satisfied. .

Rosanne Thank you for your review of the tour. I hope you enjoyed the time with me. Unfortunately, I had to ask you to cover my transportation cost as stipulated in the tour information. As Japanese people can not have JR pass and I had to ask you whole transportation cost on the tour day. If we add mine to the tour cost, it becomes higher because the commissions will be added on the tour cost too. However, I should have made sure about the cost before the tour. I hope you still enjoyed the time in Nara

“ Professonal, caring accomodating ”

Tomoko was puntual in meeting us, she was certainly proactive in make arrangemnts with the various agencies we had booked as we had arrived from Osaka o Kyoto late, She took into acciunt the needs and wishes of the different gae groups and made our visit so much soother and easire. She even bought umbrellas for us as it was raining saying that it would always come in handy for her. We saw mch of Kyoto which we definitely would have missed without her

Dear Eileen Thank you for your having me as your guide. It is a shame that at the last part of the tour, we had rain. I hope the time in Kyoto is a good memory of your japan trip.

“ Beautiful Kyoto with Tomoko ”

Tomoko was the perfect guide for our visit to Kyoto. She met us at the Port in Osaka and we made our way by train to Kyoto. We managed to visit, Inari Fushimi, Golden Temple, Bamboo Forest and Gion in one day. She took us to a fantastic small local restaurant for an authentic Japanese meal, sooo good. Tomoko has so much patience and was very knowledgeable with her information and history. My husband was very impressed, as he has a knee injury and sometimes struggles to get around, Tomoko made the perfect itinerary to suit his mobility, this was much appreciated. We experienced local trains and taxis and everyday life in the community. She even accompanied us back on time to the Terminal Port. We loved our tour with Tomoko and told all our ship friends about our wonderful experience. Thank you Tomoko.

Dear Ameila Thank you for your posting the review of the tour. I am very happy to find that you enjoyed the tour with me. Unfortunately, we had limited time and I made a tour so that you could enjoy the tour as much as possible, I hope it went well. The scene you saw on the tour will stay in your memories of the trip to Japan. Thank you for having me as your guide
