2 day visit in downtown Kyoto / 2 jours de visite du centre de Kyoto

Parfaite connaissance du pays et de la langue, adaptation à nos contraintes. Je regrette de n'avoir pas eu recours aux services de Mouloud pour tout notre séjour à Kyoto Perfect knowledge of the country and the language, adaptation to our constraints. I regret not having used Mouloud's services for our entire stay in Kyoto

Mouloud H.

Thank you Thierry for your booking and for your kind review. I hope to see you again if you come back to Kyoto! Merci Thierry pour votre réservation et pour cette critique très favorable. J'espère vous revoir un jour si vous revenez à Kyoto !

Fantastic guide

Mouloud was a great guide and a fun person. He spoke excellent English to these Australian ears. Most importantly he was very careful to listen well to make sure he did as we requested. We went to the baseball so there were large crowds. He kept an eagle eye out to make sure we were ok. Highly recommend

Mouloud H.

Thank you, Rene for your booking and for your nice review. I am glad you had a great with me and I hope to see you again!

Excellent 2 day Kashihara and Kobe trip by Mouloud

I had an excellent 2 day Kashihara and Kobe trip by Mouloud. The Kashihara tour was especially challenging due to the heavy rain but Mouloud was happy to still do the tour and I learnt so much in this area that I promised myself that I will visit here again. The Kobe tour was also excellent. We were able to cover everything in such a short period. I am truly thankful for Mouloud for making my trip enjoyable and I would recommend anyone who want to use his service.

Mouloud H.

Thank you Alexander for your 2 bookings and for your nice review. I was glad to guide you in Kansai and I hope to see you again!

Not great if English is your language

English skills limited and insufficient in my opinion. If you're a French speaker you'll be fine though. But in English you will have a hard time. Knowledge of Japan not that great. Ok, but not, in my opinion, enough to be a guide. A nice guy, but in my opinion not particularly qualified.

Mouloud H.

Dear Russel, I am sorry to hear that you have had such a negative experience and I thank you for your honnest review. I will take it into consideration to improve my English skills and I will work hard on my knowledge of Japan to offer a better service.
