Aki as he is popularly known ia a very good and helpful guide , he knows about your interests , the best thing with aki is that you leave it to him to plan your day. And he will do it beautifully.
he was there but didnot give me much information.. I could have visisted the city without him
We had a very enjoyable half day Nara city tour with Akira. He was prompt in meeting us and gave us excellent instructions on how to get from Kobe to Nara. We got to see all the best things in Nara on our short visit and would recommend Akira to others thinking about a private guide
Aki was an incredible tour guide. He was extremely informative and really went out of his way to make sure he took us to as many places as he could. He answered all our questions and was able to bring us around to even more places than we had planned in our scheduled time. He even went past his allotted time just to make sure that we got back home with his help. He was truly an incredible tour guide. If I ever come back to Japan, I will 100% be reaching out to him again.
