Gifu Tour Reviews

Hiroshima & Miyajima Tour from Kyoto

Yuriko is absolutely great! Perfect English-speaking guide, very lovely and kind! Absolute recommendation! :)

Hope M.

Thank you so much for excellent review and comments! I'm so happy to see your comments. Your comments encourage me a lot. I will do my best to be a better English speaking guide. Arigatou gozaimasu.

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)

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!(^-^)/
