An exciting day in Nagoya

Our trip to Nagoya wouldn't be as perfect if it wasn't for Moka. She was very communicative and helpful in every way, willing to modify our itinerary many many times over. Her restaurant recommendations were excellent. And she wrote down which subway to take if we wanted to go to other places in Nagoya. On the day of the tour, we were running a bit late because my youngest son wasn't feeling well. She patiently waited for us and when the tour ended a little late since my boys enjoyed the Toyota Museum so much, she did not hurry us up. Our Nagoya trip was made much more enjoyable because of Moka. I will not hesitate to have her accompany us again whenever we are back in Nagoya. Thank you so much Moka.

Moka S.

Thank you for your sweet review, Martina!! I am so happy to share fun time with you and your family! It was great that the boys liked the Toyota museum very much! Please feel free to ask me any questions when you are here and have fun rest of your stay in Nagoya! And yes, please contact me whenever come back to Nagoya again! Arigatou. Moka

Nagoya castle and Nagoya city half day tour with local tour guide Moka

My wife and myself had a wonderful time on half day tour at Nagoya castle and Nagoya city with Moka. I decided to select Moka as our tour guide after reading Moka's professional profile. Moka arrived at Nagoya airport and waited for our arrival and she picked us up at the arrival area of Nagoya airport, she is very punctual on time. We visited Nagoya castle and Nagoya city center with Moka and her driver Yoko for almost three hours and we loved their company. Moka speaks very good English and she explained us history about Nagoya castle and about Japanese culture in detail. We were very impressed with her. Her friendly nature, her generosity and her hospitality was absolutely marvelous. Moka has a great personality and sense of humor. For fellow travelers, looking for private local guide in Nagoya, i will recommend Moka. Thank you Moka and we wish you all the best. We will miss you. Jayesh and Mina Cleveland, Ohio, USA
