“ Kobe to Osaka and back ”

Toshi met us at the cruise port in Kobe. He expertly guided us via monorail, train and subway to Osaka. He was willing to spend the day doing whatever we wanted. We spent the morning at Osaka Castle Park. We then took a taxi to the shopping district, Dotombori. Toshi started the day as our tour guide but by the end of the day he was our friend. He had a great sense of humor. His English was very good. He was extremely knowledgeable! At the end of the day, he accompanied is back to the port in Kobe. He really wanted us to have a great experience and we did. My wife and I would highly recommend Toshi.

Toshi:

Hi Jeffrey and Donna, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I really really enjoyed being your guide. In a way, I feel a little bad about it, because I'm the one who enjoyed the most on the tour and received guide fee. Maybe I'm the one who should pay to you for a great company. Hope you will continue to have a great voyage in Japan and else. Thank you too much, keep in touch. Toshi

“ Had so much fun. ”

Thankyou Toshi. Our 3 daughters had a fantastic all day tour. See you on Sunday for round 2

Toshi:

Thank you very much for your review. I'm really glad to hear that. You still have one more day touring in Kyoto with me. Your daughters will have an educational and experiential fun day one more time in Kyoto, today. I'm looking forward to seeing all of you again. Best regards, Toshi

“ Very good Tour Guide ”

We, a family from Australia, went a day with Toshi. He a very good tour guide who can speak and explain in English very well. We enjoyed that and recommend him for other English speaker tourists.

Toshi:

Hi Dat-san, Thank you very much for your prompt review. It seemed like that your family members enjoyed Umeda Sky Building and had a fun time upon the roof top. It was perhaps the highlight of your Osaka tour. I'm hoping your family get on an express train smoothly and get to Kansai International Airport safely. Best regards, Toshi

“ Great day in Kyoto ”

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Toshi in Kyoto. I sent him a list of the places we were hoping to visit and he arranged an itinerary to fit. He was able to also fit in some places we would not have thought to visit, like the Okochi Sanso garden, which was one of the highlights of the day.

Toshi:

Hi Deborah, I'm very glad that you said, "Ohkohchi Sanso was the one of the highlights of the tour. " It was a beautiful day. We could see Mt.Hiei in the east and Hozu valley from the villa. It was fun for me too, to stroll around Arashiyama with both of you. When you have another chance to come back to Kyoto or Kanasai Region, please let me know. I would like to show you Kyoto in depth and other interesting places. Thank you for your review.

“ Great with kids ”

We found Toshi’s profile and realized he would be a great fit. He understood as Americans we have lots of questions and we like to talk. He was flexible and worked great around our needs and children’s needs. We explained we were going around the world and that the culture is the kids class room. He engaged right away with our kids. The second day we lost 2 and we had to change plans and he was awesome about the change. Very easy going and extremely likable. Would recommend him any time.

Toshi:

Hi Steve-san, Thank you so much for a wonderful review. It was too bad that we could not follow what we planned. It's not fun to feel not well while you travel especially in different culture. Sometimes, taking a rest and having an easy day is important as your family will continue a world trip. I hope you and your children are well by now. Mindy is a great mother of two boys. She takes care of the rest of her family very well. I learned a lot from her by seeing the way she communicates with two boys and you. You can take the boys to the Kyoto Railway Museum, while you are in Kyoto. They have a collection of steam locomotives and different types of trains. I'm sure that they will enjoy very very much. The museum is not far from your hotel. Have a fun time in Kyoto, and take care. ... read more
