“ Truly delightful ”

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Japan and Lisa was our 3rd guide for the trip. What an amazing woman. Lisa is insightful and knowledgeable, she made our trip in Kyoto the most wonderful experience. We had planned on going to Nara but decided we would rather go to Osaka to see a baseball game and she rearranged our trip in a blink of an eye. I could write a novel on how sweet and attentive she was the entire tour. She made the best trip of our lives even more special. A++++++++++++

“ Great introduction to Japan ”

To understand the present you must know the past. With her knowledge and experience Lisa helped make the most of our first ever visit to Japan. As a local in Osaka and Kyoto, we felt we were in the best hands possible. Would recommend her services to anyone visiting. Josef Bashe and Family.

“ Great guide ”

She was excellent. Lisa is easy to understand and had a broad and deep knowledge of the historical significance of the many sights we saw together during a full day in Kyoto. We were a group of six adults speaking multiple native languages. Lisa's English is so good we all understood without difficulty. She shepherded us on public transportation during the crowds of cherry blossom season and kept us on schedules in the most pleasant way. At the end of the day, she escorted us all the way back to our hotel even tho we told her we could handle it. Them, we lost one couple. Lisa looked and looked for them with us. (They were fine.) Anyone would be lucky to have Lisa as a guide. We liked her so well, we invited her to visit us in the US.
