“ Layover tour ”

I had a 15hr layover at KIX and wanted to explore Osaka. Yuri was able arrange a wonderful tour for me and showed me many different areas of Osaka. Yuri met me at the airport when my flight arrived and helped me back to where I needed to check in for my departure flight. Yuri was very friendly and loved sharing her knowledge of Osaka. I would highly recommend Yuri as a guide.

Yuri:

Dear Tammy, I highly appreciate your amazing review. It was surely my pleasure to have served you as a guide. I also very much enjoyed the days I spent with you in Osaka.It was a lovely memory, indeed.. I hope to see you again in Osaka or Cairns. Thank you so much again. Yuri

“ Excellent Guide ”

Our Nara tour with Yuri went very well. She was able to share nice insights about the temples we've visited. Our tour was also cost-effective considering that she brought us to free museums within Nara. We also enjoyed the Mechanical Toy Museum where my 11 yr. old daughter had the time to play and learn the logic or process of certain toys. We also loved exploring a tradional Japanese house. The walk in Nara park was my daughter's favorite where she got the chance to interact with the deers and feed some. It was overall an awesome Nara tour! Thanks to our guide Yuri :-)

Yuri:

Dear Anna, Thank you very much for sending me such a generous review. I also very much enjoyed the days I spent with you and your daughter. I look forward to meeting you again in the future. All the best, Yuri

“ Thank you for a great trip ”

Yuri was hardworking, friendly, and modest. She was always prompt when she responded to my queries. More importantly, thanks to her organizational skills, I was able to visit an impressive number of sites in Kyoto. I have also learned much about Japanese customs and culture from her. I really appreciate that she traveled from Nara to be my tour guide in Kyoto. Thank you so much for all your help.

Yuri:

Dear Hung-yok, I highly appreciate your amazing review. It was surely my pleasure to have served you all as a guide. I had a wonderful time spending with you for three days. You have a large stock of knowledge about Japanese history. I also learned a lot from you. Thank you so much again. Yuri

“ Our day in Osaka ”

Yuri was a friendly and polite guide who directed us to many interesting sites, but we had difficulty in undestanding her when she spoke to us. She spoke very, very softly, and it was difficult to understand her English through her disfluencies and cluttering - lots of uh's, and um's, etc. between understandable English words. Though it became tiring, and we finally gave up hope on trying to improve communication, we still had a decent site seeing day.

Yuri:

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience during the tour. I'm sorry that my poor English has caused confusion. I will make more efforts to improve English skill and guiding. Thank you for your comment.
