“ Yuri is very sweet and cost conscious. ”

Yuri is very sweet. She is punctual, met me at the hotel on time (even a few min early) and had a paper sign with my name on it. She came prepared with notes and books to point to historical facts. She also had the schedule printed with details about the stops and cost, and at the end she gave me a receipt for the part that i paid cash (train fee, entrance fee...etc). she is very cost-conscious, for example she recommended not wasting money on a part of a tour and pointed me to a photo spot of what i would see if i paid for a ticket, also she recommended avoiding food at the touristic area as they usually are more expensive and not as good. We went to a delicious place nearby instead. She was very helpful in showing me how to use the train to get from my hotel to the conference center for ... read more

Yuri:

It was Yuri's first time to pick up a customer from Osaka port and take to Kyoto, and considering that she is living in 2 hours away from the port, that fact only told us we are in good hands! Yuri had her itinerary schedule (train station and times) written down, and we just followed her everywhere at the stations not worrying if that's the right ones. She also was buying train tickets for us (be ready for a small additional cost for these) - that was helpful, too. The Mister taxi driver she hired was also a delightful man - patient and caring, and always on time waiting for us to come out from di... read more

Yuri:

Hello Luiza! Thank you for your comment. I also had great days with you and your husband. You are very easy to communicate and feel so nice together. We could make bright days because of your cooperation. Thank you for giving me the great opportunity to guide you! Have a great life with lots of LOVE. Thank you. Yuri
