We've made a last minute request for a day tour of Kyoto and although none of the operators was available Henry has miraculously located for us a tour guide from independent source. Mr Tadashi aka Tada is a brilliant guide. Fluent English, great historical knowledge, fabulous interactions with our kids to make them more interested in the subject while sweating in 30 degree heat. On the top of that he took us for lunch to his secret bbq place ( cheap as peanuts), which we all liked very much. We enjoyed his company and wonderful sense of humour as well as true Japanese gentleman manners. Thank you Henry and Tada.
Our guide, Kazumi, was wonderful! He personalized our tour to see the highlights that weren't included on our other tour. I wanted to. Us an authentic kimono for display, so he took us to a kimono fashion show and then found a custom kimono shop with the most amazing textiles! We were lucky to see the festival and he even booked a traditional keiseki meal for us to end our evening. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Great Tour in Kyoto!
Our guide Fumi was very accommodating, told her from the very start of the tour that we were with elderly people who have limitations on their physical capacity for walking. She adjusted accordingly and by the end of the day, we were surprised to find out that we endured 12km of walking for the entire day! Worth doing a customized private tour so that factors like this can be accounted for.
Great day in Kyoto
We spent an amazing day in Kyoto visiting 5 of the must see locations. The guide picked us up at 8:15( we wanted to start early to avoid the crowds ) and scheduled evrything ! He was a pleasure to be with and knew a lot about the history of Kyoto.
If you would like to do a lot if sightseeing in the best way possible take this tour!
Nara/ Kyoto tour
Yoyo was an amazing local tour guide. He took us on a fly customized tour that he readily adjusted to our needs on the day which included switching one shrine to a Japanese garden upon our request. Yoyo was very attentive and ensured we found great local restaurants - it was some of the best food we have eaten this trip. We greatly recommend Yoyo and the tour of Nara/Kyoto.
An unforgettable time in Kyoto
Kyoto is a very nice place. We love the natural environtment & its cultural history.
Shoji san, our guide, is a very nice person. It is nice to know him.
Hope to see him again.
Tour of Nara
Well we had the best time in KANSAI with Akiko, nothing was too difficult for her to do. She answered all our questions, she gave us so much local knowledge. She has a background from living in US for a while, so we had no problems with language or understanding the needs of the people in our group.
Akiko went above and beyond to help us and we LOVED every part of the day.
We would highly recommend her and do it again! Well worth the experience, well worth the money - and a great lady
Review late because we couldn't get this site to work when I tried on our return.
Thank you thank you thank you!
We had a wonderful day seeing the Kyoto sights we had discussed beforehand. Our guide was very accommodating and knowledgable. We enjoyed it very much and feel it was time well spent.
