Kanazawa Tour Reviews

A wonderful day in Kanazawa with Lucy

We were a group of 8 adults all 60+ who all thoroughly enjoyed our day with Lucy as our guide. The Kenrokuen gardens are a must see. The Ainokura site was also a highlight. Lucy was flexible with any change we needed to make and very informative as our guide. She connected well with everyone and made it a special day for us all.

Barbara A.

Dear Barbara and friends, thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to show you Kanazawa’s beautiful gardens and the charming Ainokura village. I wish you the best cruising around Japan and hope to meet again one day, in Kanazawa or Australia.

Excellent Kanazawa 101 tour

My husband and I had a wonderful time with Lucy this morning. Since she is from Europe, her tour is perfectly aligned with our (US) perspective and interests, and she speaks perfect English! Also she is super friendly and has a great knowledge of Kanazawa and Japanese history and culture. We learned so much from her while are not overwhelmed by too much information that could happen for a scholastic tour guide. So we highly recommend her if you are interested in Kanazawa 101 tour!

Debra C.

Thank you Debra for your kind review. It was a pleasure to spend the morning with you and your husband and I wish you a wonderful time in Kanazawa and Japan. All the best, Lucy

Wonderful day with an excellent guide

We did a full day tour in Kanawaza with our guide Lucy. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Our guide was excellent and we had great fun with her. She really cared for our needs and took us around all the main sights. She gave us a real perspective of the city and its people. We definitely recommend her. Gowithguide is also a very good company to deal with.
