“ Nara Visit ”

Mike was a very good tour guide. He had a lot of information to share with us about Nara. He was very pleasant to spend the day with.Nara Park had hundreds of deer walking around and that was very interesting to see them going up to people who would then feed them. There was a lot of walking on our tour but we did not want to miss anything of interest. Mike controlled our pace and made the trip very interesting.

“ Very professional and goes beyond what is expected ”

From the day I booked Masahisa (Mike) he has been emailing me about the itinerary and helping me with restaurant choices, even our transportation to Koyasan. He has given me so much information that I feel I have underpaid him! Although I only booked him for 8 hours, he stayed with us until 7pm and brought us back to out hotel. He was very professional and I will not hesitate to book him again for my future tours.
