We had a great day with Tokie in Kyoto. We saw a number of the very interesting sights and areas and learnt about the history and culture of Kyoto. Tokie also took some awesome photos for us! Thank you Tokie.
Tokie was prompt, flexible and very knowledgeable helping make the most of a one day trip to Kyoto. Will definitely refer her and look forward to a tour in Osaka sometime.
Because we were unsure of subway Tokie met us and helped us but tickets and at end of tour did the same again, even going with us because we had to change trains. She was very knowledgeable about the area and we met many local people. If we come back to Japan we would live to be guided by Tokie.
Hi Gavin ! Thank you for joining my tour and I'm happy that you liked my tour ! I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the future !
Tokie was superb. She took us around her own neighborhood showing us a shrine and some local shops, including a stamp workshop were we made our own stamps. In the evening she took us barhopping and we tried out local drinks and foods. We definitely got to experience some of the local flavor that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Tokie is easy to talk to, knowledgeable and an experienced guide. I highly recommend her.
