We only had one full day in Kyoto and decided the best thing for our party of 9 was to arrange a private tour. We had a terrific day with Eric. He met us at our hotel and took us on a day trip covering the highlights of Kyoto. We were able to personalise the tour as one family had been to Kyoto before. Eric was patient, happy and knowledgeable and kept the 5 teenagers entertained . Eric arranged public transport passes which allowed us to travel easily by train and bus to visit the various sites. Our tour lasted 7 hours. I would highly recommend Eric to friends or others considering a private tour. I thought the cost of the day per person was very reasonable.
Ms Jullian Thank you for your comments for my guide tour I am very happy to hear from you that you had a good time in Kyoto I wish if you will enjoy Kanazawa Hakuba and Tokyo Eric Tanaka
Very professional! Thanks for a great Day!
Our first time in Kyoto and we fell in love with the city. Eric was an amazing tour guide, he picked us up and made sure we got the right train back to Tokyo. Excellent customer service, I would highly recommend him...he really knows Kyoto well. A tour we will never forget. Thank you Eric for a great experience in Kyoto.
Eric was a great guide! We did an evening tour, and he took us to several beautiful spots in Kyoto. We got some fantastic pictures, and Eric was happy to take photos of our group. At times we had difficulty understanding (we are native English speakers), but Eric was enthusiastic and answered all our questions. I appreciated that the route he took us on was very well-planned and scenic--it felt like we were among the local population. Thank you, Eric!
Eric showed us Kyoto as his home town. He knows his way around and adds lots of color. Enjoyed our time with him
Ms Lori Thank you for your comments Please come again Eric Tanaka
Eric was an awesome guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history. He brought us to great restaurants so we were able to enjoy the amazing food! Thank you so much Eric.
I was pleased with the day tour to Hiroshima with Eric. I traveled with my 6-year old daughter, and I was a bit anxious about the trip. Eric was kind, considerate, and pretty flexible with re: our pace, interests, and (ice-cream) stops etc. On our way back, my credit cards did not work on the (shinkansen) ticket machines, and Eric paid for our tickets and asked us to pay it back when we reached an ATM (that did take our cards). I would definitely seek him out for future day tours if/when I travel to Japan again.
Our family had a great overview of Kyōto in one day and despite the extreme heat- Eric was able to provide a great commentary and lovely oversight of Kyōto. From a visit to the beautiful shrines, to the exhilarating scenic train ride which provided us with many wonderful photos to take (and which the kids really loved) to visiting the enchanting Bamboo Grove. Eric also brought us to the Kinkakuji Temple (Golden Temple) which was magnificent and he knew the exact spot for the perfect shot of the temple. If we were to have done all the excursions ourselves we would have spent much longer trying to use the public transport system and finding the attractions whereas Eric knew the shorter routes and saved us much effort. He provided an insightful view of the attractions and of Japanese cultu... read more

Eric has been most helpful in helping my family and me plan our stay in Kyoto. We have not been sure what we want to see/do while in Kyoto and Eric has been very flexible and excellent to communicate with. He has provided us very detailed itinerary ideas along with the associated costs of each. Thank you Eric.
