Flexible and fun

Did the tour with Adam because Andy was under the weather the day of our booking. I had requested a custom tour because I was with my 88 year old parents and it was the peak Sakura week and I was concerned about crowds. Andy and Adam made sure we hit the main highlights requested by my family and customized accommodating the pace of the tour and navigating with two wheelchairs. Highly recommend!

Interesting and informative

Andy was a great guide, and our family of 5 adults thoroughly enjoyed our tour wiith him. Andy's enthusiasm for, and love of Japan was evident throughout the tour. He was easy to understand and was happy to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend Andy's deep back street Osaka tour if you want to see and learn about a part of Japan off the 'beaten path'.

Kathryn, the pleasure was absolutely mine. Great night out and thoroughly enjoyed answering the queries from an open-minded, intrepid family:) Happy travels and I hope that the memories will last for a long time to come. Andy-Kenji

Terrific evening with Taka

Taka met us on time. He was incredibly well spoken and enthusiastic. He led 6 of us to some great small restaurants, explained the food as well as the available drinks, and was able to answer all of our questions about ingredients and cooking styles. We were stuffed and everyone in our group loved all of it. This tour was lots of fun and Taka was the best!
