Taking a 7 hour Kyoto Tour with Zumi San.. He’s very responsive. Talking about the destinations via messages before my arrival. Even tough a bit rush in time, because of the limited time with many destinations, Zumi San can manage it well. So We visit the destinations that we planned. He’s cool. Not talking to much, but giving needed informations about the places.. Thanx a lot Zumi San See U again when I Visited Japan...
Dear,Ike san. Thank you so much for taking the service and giving me such a good message. I tried to do my best to guide you and your family in the limited time. The reason I talked less was based on that I wouldn't have liked to disturb your dialogue.Excuse me. I'll talk more than this time on our next meeting. Thank you.Sincerly. Zumi
Zumi as we called him by his nickname was so patient, understanding, helpful as my husband was on a wheelchair zumi helped push him. Zumi is full of knowledge in all the places we visited. Zumi explained explicitly about the history of every place we visited. Zumi made our visit really pleasant. Thank you Zumi. Ed and Yvonne Wong
