“ Sapporo tour ”

He is an Accommodative and friendly guide . He can adapt to last min changes of the itinerary. Helped my kids during their skiing lesson and he fulfilled most of our request throughout the journey . Overall we give him a 8/10 . He needs to improve on his command of English otherwise all are good ! Keep up the good work and thanks for the wonderful 5 days journey

“ Efficient Guide ”

Shinobu san was able to get us to and from all of our points of interest with great efficiency, so we did not waste any time. He also arranged our requested tours and translated for us so we could understand what was going on..

“ Japan..different city every day ”

Shinobu did an excellent job pre-touring where we went. Unfortunately his English is not very good so communication was very difficult. Also, it would have been better if we had known the entire cost earlier rather than a day or two before when additional expenses were added. The restaurant choices were very good and we really enjoyed them. I would have to say Shinobo is more of a guide to get you to each place, but not one to teach you about each place, nor learn anything along the way.

“ Nice local guide ”

We enjoyed our tour with Shinobu. He even helped my wife get her umbrella back after it had been left in a cab. He was vert easy to work with and showed us the sights we wanted to see.
