What to Expect

Besides of a deep knowledge of the architecture and history of the sites and streets we will visit, I will point you out many details of each place that hardly other guide could tell you or which are very hard to find at any common data base on google.

As I ve been living here since several years, doing different jobs and activities and dealing with a variety of people, I had many personal experiences that I would like to share with you in order to give a very fine understanding of the society and daily life here. And by sharing with you all this past and present experiences is also a way to get confident with you by making the tour more personal.

Up to 7 or 8 travellers it will increase up to 2000¥ per hour.

I mean personalized, at the title of this tour, as I like to meet and communicate with people of any background and nationality, either solo travellers, couples, families, groups of friends, young, aged, etc. Also to adapt myself to different kinds of motivations and points of view.

With personal I pointed out the way I see this.

I like to feel as the very opposite of a machine of the service sector.

I value empathy and I hope, and usually happens, to end the tour with the feeling of a certain kind of friendship.

-There are itineraries for all the tours but they are flexible in the sense that new places to visit can be added and others removed in accordance to the requests of the travellers-

Attentive and flexible

Alex was very attentive and gave us plenty room to customize the tour. For instance, we asked if it was posible to go to the Monkey Park and he took us there and didn't mind waiting. We had a great time in Osaka, Nara and Kyoto with him.
