Very Good

“ A good overview of Kyoto ”

Kenji was very pleasant and knowledgeable, and we enjoyed our day with him. We did have occasional challenges with his English unlike our other guides in Japan. But overall very pleased with the areas we visited. I would forewarn people who visit Kyoto with TripleLights to be aware of the additional costs involved for the tour. We spent between $90-$100USD for taxi fares, entrance fees and lunch for us and the guide (2 of us total and 1 guide). Low cost subways are not available in Kyoto like in Tokyo, so it adds to the overall cost of the trip. Helps to know in advance so can bring sufficient amount of cash. But overall, a very nice tour and enjoyed our time with Kenji.

“ Prepared, organized and thoughtful ”

Kenji was so organized with planning our two days together. He carefully took all of our input and planned perfect days for the three of us (age 14 to 77). My mother has challenging food allergies and he carefully selected restaurants to accommodate her. He is kind and knowledgeable! We highly recommend him for your tour days.

“ Great day in Kyoto ”

We had a great day with Kenji in Kyoto. We saw all the main sights . We only had one day so we asked him to fit as much as he could into one day. He was very informative but also fun. We had a great lunch at a local noodle restaurant. I would recommend Kenji as a tour guide.
