One day trip of Nara Park

Nara
6 hours

Great introduction to Nara

We enjoyed our tour with Makoto. He was friendly and generous, adjusting the tour to suit my 13year old, we especially loved feeding the deer, visiting the shrines & temples the opportunity to try on yukata. I highly recommend a guided tour Makato. Thank you for showing us around Nara.

Tamara C.

Dear Tamara, Thanks for your nice comments on my tour. I am so glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. I have recognized that you and your daughter are nice animal lover and Origami lover. I was surprised that your daughter arranged the deer Origami, the foot of which was so real. She must have some special talent. Nara is nice city especially in springtime. I hope that you visit Nara again. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide. Best regards, Makoto

Excellent tour with Makoto

Makoto was a wonderful guide. He is very details oriented, provided us with a detailed itinerary, maps, and valuable history information before we even started the tour. Makoto was flexible and adjusted the itinerary to what we really wanted to see. He has a wonderful sense of humor as well and we had a fun day having him as a guide!

Oleg V.

Dear Oleg, Thanks for your nice comments on the tour. It was nice judgement for you to visit Toji temple and Sanjyusangendo, as the visiting time is limited but they shows good Japanese history. I enjoyed guiding you Kyoto and also the history of Osaka very much. Thanks for your choosing me of your guide. Makoto

Osaka

One of the best tours

Makato was great! He was very flexible and adjusted to our schedule. He also changed the tour based on what we wanted to see, which made it more enjoyable. Makato helped us navigate Osaka and eliminate any complications throughout the day. He even stayed with us to find my son the dessert he wanted. Makato made the day unforgettable! On top of everything, we enjoyed his sense of humor and his ability to make the tour extra fun!

Leonid S.

Dear Leonid, Thanks for your nice comments for my tour. I also enjoyed very much with the conversation with you and your sense of humor. The best part is that your son mentioned about the samurai picture stating that this samurai is being interviewed after the big battle. I will never forget this sense as the picture was really indicating that situation. I hope that your son will take you to Japan next time. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide this time.
