“ Kyoto Day Tour ”

Shin was a wonderful host and tour guide. Definitely 5 stars from us! We only had one day in Kyoto so we really wanted to see as many sights as possible. Shin allowed us too personalise our day tour, also taking our children's interests into consideration. Shin was incredibly professional and extremely knowledgeable. We had the most incredible day in Kyoto with Shin. Shin was also very helpful with our train tickets and ensured we made it onto the correct train to Osaka Airport at the end of the day. ( In his own time) Do not hesitate to book Shin, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Shin Regards, Sophie

“ Shin is the best! ”

I started to communicate with Shin regarding 2 days of guided tour from Tokyo to Mt. Fuji, to Hakone to Kyoto. Since this was early in my attempt to put together a plan for a 17 days tour for 6 people in Japan, Shin very quickly gave me invaluable advice and tips, way beyond his two days with us. He practically “took responsibility” for our well being during the entire time. Rented a minivan for us for one day, took care of all other reservation we still needed, gave us information about hotels we booked, calculated the cost effectiveness of a JRpss based on our needs, and more. I booked his days about 3 weeks ahead, but he took the initiative to continue to correspond with me during the next 3 weeks whenever he had a new thought or idea of what will make our trip better (all 17 days of it, not only the 2 he was booked us). Corresponding with him was a pleasure, always prompt and full of good tips and answered many questions as most of first time in Japan traveler will have. Continuously encouraged me to ask him any question I had about our trip, not only the days with him. Extremely generous with his time to help as much as needed. To call Shin a “tour guide” really covers only a small portion of what he has done for us. In addition, he is very knowledgeable in history and culture. We have learned from him a great deal about Japan. He is very punctual, very polite, very efficient, pays attention to details. His English is very good. He met us in the morning highly prepared with hand drawn maps specific to our trip. He quickly became part of our group. All in all a very nice gentleman. Shin made our trip easier and unforgettable. We love shin and are extremely grateful for him being with us. We highly recommend him! If he is available he’s your guy!

“ We love shin ”

Shin made our trip unforgettable. He is highly knowledgeable, tons of fun, extremely polite and punctual, and a fantastic host for Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. We wouldn’t have been able to see nearly as much without him, and it wouldn’t have been half as fun. We love shin! Highly recommend - don’t think twice...he’s your guy!

“ Maraming Salamat Shin! The Best! Efficient and friendly service ”

We are a family of four from the USA. Part of our Asia tour had 5 days in Japan with only 3 full days of touring, and we wanted to see the three major cities: Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto in that short amount of time without having to figure out the complex subway system of Japan. We are so glad that we found Shin. We spent 3 days with him. He is a very nice gentleman, knows his way around the cities of Japan, and goes out of his way to help us to make our vacation worry free. His English is very good and he explains well. He helped us translate many items and signs. Took us to shortcuts and places some other tourists dont know about. He would make detailed notes on paper to give us in case we get lost or when we go on our own when the tour is done for the night. He also speaks Tagalog which is my wife and my native language. He knows our culture well, having lived in the philippines. It made us and the kids very comfortable with him from the beginning. Overall, I am very satisfied with the service that Shin has provided. Not only did we have a great 3 day tour seeing all the cities. but we also made a lifelong friend in Shin. Thank you Shin! See you next time.
