Thank you for helping us!!

Our client gave a good review for Guide Atsushi-san, whom Ahmed provided when he was not available. Even though Ahmed wasn't available, he helped us a lot with our very last-minute request. Thank you so much, Ahmed. I hope we can collaborate again next time.

Fun evening

We met our guys Shu and had a lovely evening walking around and exploring a neighborhood that we had not previously seen. He was fun, knowledgeable and flexible to explore things we wanted to see and do. He even joined us for a dinner and helped us with making reservations for the next day.

Thanks a lot Lara for your nice words and hope to serve you again in Kyoto

Ahmed - hugely helpful in the face of a big mistake!

I booked a 1-day Kyoto tour with Ahmed for TWELVE people about 3 months before our trip. Awhile later I changed our arrival date to Kyoto, but forgot to update Ahmed. The night before our scheduled tour, he sent me a message making sure we were set for "tomorrow" .. but we weren't scheduled to arrive until the following day! Long story short... Ahmed went to great lengths to solve the problem, rescheduling the driver and then standing-in himself for the original guide (who was unavailable a day later). Overall -- it was FANTASTIC that he was able to solve this with just a day of notice! we had a fun and interesting day with Ahmed, I would definitely recommend.

Thank you so much Joe for your nice words and pleasure to see you were happy with it.
