Knowledgeable & friendly guide

Moe was great. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our time schedule. She was waiting on the train platform when we arrived, took us to see some Kyoto highlights. Found a lovely place to eat that accommodated my vegetarian diet and directed us on how to get back to the train.

Afternoon in Osaka

We had Moe show us around Osaka for an afternoon and had a great time with her as our guide! She was very easy to work with in planning an itinerary and very flexible too! She was on time, spoke great English and taught us a lot about the city! Highly recommend booking a tour with Moe!

Touring Kyoto

Four of us, our first visit to Japan and no Japanese language skills, enjoyed a full day tour of Kyoto with Moe. All of us thought she was a terrific guide, highly fluent in English, easily understandable, and a delightful conversationalist on all topics. We enjoyed her willingness to engage in informed discussion with us on a wide variety of topics, both historical and current. It provided us an excellent first exposure to Japanese culture. She prepared a fun itinerary for the day, introducing us to so many highlights of the beautiful city of Kyoto. Her knowledge and skill in using the extensive local public transportation system allowed us to see the maximum number of sights in the single day we had available. Her fun and pleasant demeanor made the day a real pleasure for us all. Thanks so much, Moe!!

Osaka Cruise port to Kyoto

Moe is a lovely young lady. We immediately felt comfortable with her. She took us on the train to Kyoto. We said we’d like to take the bullet train which we did for the experience. She got our tickets for us. Explained where we were going and listened to our request. Showed us all that we wanted to and understood our needs. Highly recommend.
