Delightful!

Hiroko was super responsive and flexible with our timing. She has a great grasp of the history of the temples and shrines in Kyoto that she is happy to share in a delightful manner. She constantly offered to take photos of our family and was sweet and happy to memorialize our trip and share Kyoto with us.

Leslie B.

Leslie, I feel truly honored by your kind, generous and quick review. You make a beautiful family, and the weather was naturally on your side during the tour. Also, your daughter was kind enough to tell me about current East Village in Manhattan. As you are very nice and delightful, I really enjoyed being your guide in Kyoto. Please send my warmest regards to your husband and daughter for me. All the best, Hiroko

Hiroko is great!

I’m so glad I found Hiroko through GoWithGuide! I arranged a tour for my friends, visiting Kyoto for the first time. I knew a local guide would add so much value , enable them to really relax and enjoy the experience . Hiroko made that happen! She turned my tour outline into a professional itinerary, met the guests on time on the day, gave a fantastic tour including Nishiki market and Kiyomizudera and delivered my friends, safe and very happy,, to Pontocho. Thanks so much Hiroko! You’re great!

Danielle K.

Danielle, I am truly grateful for your kind and generous review. Your friends are very nice, and I really enjoyed being their guide in Kyoto. Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity. I hope that they will visit here again sometime in the future as there are more to see. Kind regards, Hiroko
