Much regret taking this tour. The guide isn’t qualified as english at all

Mao is a lovely girl with english language skills of a beginners level ESL student. The tour was supposed to last 3 hours, which we paid for in advance. For the first 2 hours we walked around Takayama trying to break language barrier and answering numerous questions Mao asked about our trip itinerary without understanding much of what we were saying to her. Also did sake tasting where she wasn’t much needed. We could of looked up online the couple of stores in the sender she took us to. After 2 hours she asked what we wanted to do next. We’ve asked what she has planned, to which she said that there was no specific plan. Really disappointed with the choice of a guide, also truly puzzled why Mao has chosen to advertise herself as an english guide. Will be asking for at least 50% refund.

Fun exploration of Takayama

We met Mao in Takayama during our brief visit, for a half-day tour in a cold November afternoon with our 2 young children. Mao was extremely patient with us, encouraging us to try street foods and sake. She is very informative and have great energy. Even though our tour was only for few hours, she didn't make us feel rushed. She is very smart and gentle. We are really happy that we found her for our brief time in beautiful Takayama. We highly recommend her.

Hi Hina! Thank you for your review! I’m happy to hear that you were enjoyed tour! It was cold day, so come Takayama again in spring or summer!
