Kyoto Tour Reviews

Outstanding Guide

We were a large group of 10 and we arranged to have Kazu take us to a Nara and Kyoto. He met us at the Osaka cruise port for our 10 hours of touring and traveling. The tour itinerary involved taking trains and A LOT of walking, but several members of our group had some mobility issue. However, Kazu was VERY PATIENT and had this under control. He led those with mobility issues to the station elevators and when they were too tired to walk, he would direct them to a resting place while the rest of the group continued with the tour. All in all, we were able to see all the sights we wanted to visit and Kazu was a wealth of knowledge. It was a long day, but we could not have done any of this without the services of Kazu. We are very appreciative of his patience and we all had a wonderful and informative day with Kazu.

Hello, Thank you for the nice review. I apologize for making you walk a lot. I had a great time too. I hope this tour will be a memorable one. And I hope you will come to Japan again. Thank you very much !! Kazuhiko Goto

Excellent introduction to Kyoto's treasures

My wife and I had just 3 days to explore Kyoto and we had an excellent experience with Kazuhiko. He met us at our hotel and away we went. Not only did we see interesting sights, but more importantly he taught us lots of “unique facts” that we would never have discovered for ourselves. As one example, visiting a Shinto shrine we learned about the architecture and the different rituals and how each differ between Shinto and Buddhist shrines. I felt sad for tourists who had no guide and so missed the significance and meaning of what they were seeing. Importantly, Kazuhiko kept his explanations short and on point — no long lectures, just interesting context and facts. He was a delight and all of us had a great time, seeing so many different Kyoto sights that we could never have managed to see on our own in two days. He was also great in recommending places to eat. We highly recommend Kazuhiko

Hello, Thank you for the nice review. I’m glad you enjoyed the tour and I had a good time too. And thank you for understanding my explanation. I hope this tour will be a memorable one. Thank you very much !!
