We contacted Eric at the very last minute to do a very abbreviated tour. He took us exactly where we wanted to go and helped us meet our timing constraints. We had a fantastic time. We enjoyed the information he shared with us about the places we went to see.

Many thanks to Eric for his well planned tour around the Gion area and his patience during the trip!
Ms Rosemary Thank you for your comments and It is my pleasure that your mom enjoyed shopping Please come to Kyoto again Regards Eric Tanaka
Good guide but was disappointed on the transport pick up and drop off. We asked Eric to pick us up and drop off at hotel. Demanded money for a cab there and back and then asked for additional money to cover. Very unprofessional.
Sorry for causing you to pay extra money I will pay attention about this matter. EricTanaka
Eric was fantastic. From the moment we booked he was super friendly, communicated effectively and made our life super easy. On the tour itself he was very flexible to make sure we covered everything we wanted to, but also added his unique perspective on the beautiful sites of Kyoto. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend anyone to approach him!
