“ SHIN RATES AT MORE THAN 100% ”

Shin is the perfect guide, who will go the extra mile for you, and I really mean it. He is totally devoted to his work, sympathetic and truly helpful. He accompanied us from Kyoto to Osaka, and not only made us visit Osaka as agreed, he even helped us carry our luggage, helped us find transportation to the airport for the day after, suggested and even showed us restaurants for dinner. Hire Shin ... you will not regret it. Pierre

SHIN:

Dear Pierre san. Thank you very much for nice comment. But I think it is more than I deserve. I feel so happy to be with you in Kyoto my home town and Osaka. Though our tour was only 8 hours, probably 0.001% of our life time, it must be a wonderful page of my life I will never forget. And it’s so amazing to see your wonderful painting by your wife. I’m sure she is No1 great artist of Quebec! Time flys fast. I hope your good life and happiness. Merci beaucoup et à bientôt. SHIN

“ 2 day tour of Kyoto, Nara and Osaka ”

Shin was a great guide for our two days. He expertly guided us through the highlights of three cities using trains, subways, buses and taxis. He is very personable, knowledgeable and professional. We are glad we selected Shin and got to know him. He definitely made our time in Osaka, Kyoto and Nara a very memorable experience.

SHIN:

Dear Robert san, thank you very much for having hired me as your three cities tour guide. Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. And I would truly appreciate your nice review. These three towns are closer in location but have different original faces. I am pleased you enjoyed traditional and modern things. I hope nice Japan tour will be going on cruiser too. Thank you so much ! SHIN

“ Very helpful person ”

Mr Shin was very helpful. He was kind enough to scout out our Air BnB before our arrival. He took pictures and gave specific instructions on how to find it a day before our arrival. We had the 1 day tour which started at 9 am and he stayed with us way past our end time. Mr Shin made sure we were safely on our way home inspite of us letting him know that we would be ok. We managed to see the important sights around Kyoto and traveled like the locals using the bus and train system. Everything was very efficient.

SHIN:

Dear Donna san. I really appreciate your good review comment to our tour. I am please to be your tour guide whole day in Kyoto. Though I worried about raining, we were luck to have kept on going without heavy rain. This time we have been to popular landmarks like Fushimi inari shrine, Arashiyama bamboo forest & Tenruji temple, and UNESCO World heritage Golden Temple. Our last spot is Nishiki food market center of Tokyo,and it was fun to taste different local ingredients. I think you are experts of global travelers, so you will continue wonderful journey much more. I hope our Kyoto tour will remain as a shining gem-like memories. Thank you ! SHIN.
