“ Kind and flexible ”

Toshi was professional and helped prepare for our requests to visit some less frequently attended locations. His kindness was lovely.

Toshi:

Hi Lauren, Thank you for your prompt review. I also thank you for arranging the van/ driver who were very familiar with local streets. I'm glad that we could join the first tour of Katsura Detached Imperial Villa without waiting time. We were lucky. Take care. Toshi

“ Nice, informative tour ”

Toshi took us on a nice 1.5 day tour of Kyoto. He customized the tour based on what we wanted to see. He also gave us good dinner recommendations.

Toshi:

Hi Josh, Thank you very much for your review. I’m glad that you had a wonderful time in Kyoto. If you find out the date you will be coming to Osaka, please let me know. I can take you some place interesting, or we can have dinner together, How about both? Best regards, Toshi

“ Day in Kyoto ”

Toshi was super nice. He took us to some great places. He had a lot of knowledge about Japan. When we forgot our umbrellas in his backpack (we were luck to not have rain) he went completely out of his way to bring them to our next hotel. Thanks so much for all the help Toshi!!!

Toshi:

Hi Margit, I saw a few umbrellas and a raincoat in my back pack, after I got back home. I completely forgot to return them to you. I was hoping that it would not rain in Kyoto next day, while I kept them. I think the weather was OK, wasn't it? Thank you very much for your nice review. Best regards, Toshi

“ What more could you ask for? ”

Toshi spoke excellent English, was very pleasant to be with and took us all the places we requested to go. All this for just 5 of us at 1/3 the price of a cruise ship land excursion covering the same things on a bus of 40 people.

Toshi:

Hi David, I do not know about the land excursion trip for cruise ship passengers. But I'm happy that your family members seemed to enjoy my guiding service in Osaka. Thank you very much for your review. Please tell Paul that I had sent the post card right away, which he asked me to send just before all of you went back to the cruise ship. Best regards, Toshi
