Okayama Tour Reviews

Amazing tour

Mayumi was incredibly prepared ahead and invested during in offering me the best tour possible. Highly recommend.

Adam G.

Thank you very much for requesting Naoshima Guide. Thank you for coming a long way. I hope you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasant season, a perfect day for a trip to the island, but due to the long holiday period, all the sites were crowded and the waiting time was long, and the high temperatures must have been very tiring for you. Your journey continues and I wish you well as you head to your next destination. Please visit the Seto Inland Sea again someday. With gratitude. Mayumi

Very Personalised and Sincere Guide that is so well prepared and Fun to be with

Mayumi is so professional and friendly. My Husband & I had so much fun packed in a day at Naoshima that is so well planned by Mayumi. Prior to the trip, Mayumi is always so quick in replying to my email questions and clear all my doubts. And she planned the itinerary to suits our preference. She so kindly popped by our hotel the day before the tour to leave us some notes that she has prepared for us so that we can go through first and she even prepared a welcome gift :) She made us feel so welcome to Okayama. On the 1 day tour, She came all so well prepared and even have alternative plans for our selections. Her English is good and we have no problem communicating with her. She takes time to patiently go through the details and share with us her knowledge about the island & the Arts in the museums and around the island. We had a wonderful time at the Island and certainly gain more knowledge that will add to our sweet memories. Thank you Mayumi.

Looking at you makes me want to travel to various places with you :) Thank you for visiting the Seto Inland Sea. I enjoyed planning your trip and it was a great pleasure for me to tour around with you, who are full of curiosity and energy. Please come to Okayama again! I’m looking forward to seeing you again.

GREAT guide! Very helpful & accommodating

Mayumi was a wonderful guide for two private tour days in Naoshima & surrounding art islands. From the start, during the planning stages, she was very helpful with suggestions and went above and beyond to help us navigate the various museum entrances, local ferry schedules, etc. I appreciated her detailed responses and that she was always quick to get back to me during planning stages as well. Thank you Mayumi!
