Excellent Guide to Nara from Osaka!

Nobuku was excellent! She spoke excellent English and was helpful, friendly, professional and got along well with all the different age ranges in our large group. We had 7 people ranging from kids to seniors and she helped create an itinerary that each of us enjoyed! It was a pleasure to meet her and she went above and beyond in communicating helpful tips with us before, during and after the tour day!

Anna A.

Thank you very much for your kind words! It was a pleasure guiding your group and creating an itinerary that suited everyone's interests. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour and found the tips helpful. Especially, your kids were indeed adorable! If you ever return to the area, I'd be delighted to guide you again. Safe travels!

Lovely day with lovely lady

We spent a day exploring Osaka and Nara with Nobuko. We are mum, dad and adult son visiting Japan for the rugby World Cup, The content I asked for was supplemented by interesting and local highlights I wouldn’t have ever managed. We talked all day about life, culture and society. We loved our visit and Nobukos company,

Fabulous way to see Kyoto

Nobuku was, in short, the ideal guide. English was perfect, personable and knowledgeable. We saw everything possible in one day of Kyoto, efficiently. She was flexible to make a slight change we requested. One of the two or three best guides we have had.

Joel and karen L.

Dear Joel, Thank you for your generous review,Joel. It was my pleasure to introduce Kyoto for you and your beautiful wife. Seeing your wife was happy about Kyoto stuff, you looked as happy as she was. And I understood deeply how much you love each other. It is always gladful to me to see beautiful love in a couple like you guys. You are the one of the excellent costomers of all and thank you for being nice to me. You spoiled me with the best Green tea treat in Nijyo castle which I never had before. Thank you again for choosing me as your local guide Joel, and I like your wife's Komono a lot!! See you and have the great rest of your trip. Nobuko

We can go to the Ginkakuji temple by bus and walk along the philosopher's path. Then visit Heian shrine or Nanzenji temple. After that, Gion district to Kiyomizu-temple, we can appreciate different historical sites and shops too. It should be 1.5hs walk. Take a bus or taxi if we get tired or run out of time but it could be easy walk and we gonna have a great time I guess.
