Fantastic Specialized Tour

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.

GION and Kyoto

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.

Eric T.

Sorry for causing you to pay extra money I will pay attention about this matter. EricTanaka

Fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly - we had a fantastic experience!

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!
