Aichi Tour Reviews

Solid guide

Yuriko came a pretty long way from her home and our 4 hour tour was basically a full day commitment for her. But you wouldn't know it from her energy and enthusiasm. We hit most of the major sights in Takayama, so it was an efficient use of time, and she added some interesting information along the way. Her English skills were excellent, perhaps the best of the 4 guides we used. And like all of our guides she really went out of her way to accommodate our requests and make us feel like her personal guests. She even gave us small handcrafted gifts.

John W.

Thank you for giving me such a wonderful review and nice comment! I'm so happy to read your complement. I also had a good time with you in Takayama. I've sometimes got a good information from my guests during guiding. Yes! this time, your clever daughter gave me a nice information where the watch tower in Takayama Jinya can be seen.(I've visited there so many times, but I've never noticed about it(^-^;) Thank you so much for everything, and please come to Gifu, again! Your guide, Lily(Yuriko)

Elie A.

Thank you for an excellent review and nice comment so quickly! I also had wonderful two days in Kyoto with you and your wife. Especially, I enjoyed talking with you and your wife while going around Gion area on the first day and Arashiyama area on the second day. I always felt happy because you both were so gentle to me and so cheerful. Please come to Japan in different season, such as early April or late November. I'm sure you'll see another beautiful Japanese scenery. Please enjoy Nara and Osaka, too!(^-^)/

Excellent Tour of Kanazawa with Yuriko

We had a wonderful day exploring Kanazawa with Yuriko. She is very friendly and her English is excellent. The tour she organised for us was great and included all the highlights of the town. Her extensive knowledge of the history and local customs added to our enjoyment. She also helped us negotiate the local bus system and organised an excellent lunch. She is highly recommended as a guide.

Suzi J.

Thank you for an excellent review and wonderful comment! I also had a memorable day in Kanazawa with you and your nice group. You're always very kind to me and gave me interesting questions. Please say my gratitude to your nice fellows, yes! three cool, gentle and sometimes very funny SAMURAI. Please come to Japan again, Suzi san! Yuriko(Lily)

Kyoto

Kyoto is one of the most popular places to visit, but so crowded. If you want to enjoy quiet Kyoto, I recommend you visit there early morning. In this tour, you can enjoy bamboo grove, morning coffee at a Japanese style coffee shop and beautiful river and mountains scenery from a wooden bridge. After that, why don't you try 'washoku', or Japanese cuisine and maiko, or cute apprentice geisha's dancing? My special early morning tour will give you wonderful and unforgettable memories in Japan!!
