About

I'm a national licensed tour guide both in english and spanish living in osaka city for 15years. Used to work for airlines and a hotel before, and really love to travel abroad. Since I quit these jobs, decided to plan private tours in my beloved city. I love the Travel Lights's idea of connecting tourists and locals and it'll be my greatest pleasure if I could help you discover my city and experience something unique. Will be great to have a friendship even after the tour ends (not as a guide but as a friend)!

“ An evening on the town ”

We went for a somewhat free-form evening tour in Osaka in a non-touristy district with RIE and she was extremely accommodating both when booking and during the tour itself. We wanted to eat and drink our way a bit off the beaten path and RIE was absolutely great helping us find some really great spots we would have never known about. She was super cool and we greatly enjoyed our evening with her.

RIE:

Thank you for your leaving such a great review soon after our tour. It's very kind of you, Rick. It was a great time with all of you, enjoying a dinner at a local and energetic district, and you inspired me of a new-style guide course for my future guests! I wish I could make your stay in Osaka even more unforgettable. I hope you come back to Osaka soon to discover more yummy food and interesting culture in Japan. Thank you again and best regards to your family.
