Osaka Tour Reviews

A professional and accomodating guide

Ms Atsuko is a professional and accomodating guide. She is attentive to our needs. She knows her way around Arashiyama and was able to organise her tour efficiently. Ms Atsuko even went out of the way to show us Kinkakuji when it was not part of the itinerary. Five stars!

Augustine T.

Hello Mr. Augustine, Thank you for your review and comment for me. I am happy you enjoyed visiting Arashiyama and Kinkakuji Temple. We walked a lot today. Luckily, we could see the quiet bamboo forest in the temple. It was fun for me to talk with you and show you the beauty in Kyoto. Thank you for joining my tour. Please say hello to Agnes. Best regards, Atsuko

Knowledgeable tour guide

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Atsuko. She took us to some great spots around Osaka. Atsuko was also very proactive, she even asked if we have any dietary requirements which is an extremely nice touch. She is also very knowledgeable when it comes to the history of the places that we visited and was very accomodating for any questions that we had. Would definitely book her again for our future trip.

Jef G.

Hello Mr. Jef, Thank you for your kind review and comment for me. I also enjoyed the tour with you yesterday. The weather was very strange. It was raining in the morning and sunny and humid in the afternoon. I think your wife, Azhar, must have been very tired. I am happy to join a part of your honeymoon trips. Please visit Japan again. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you. Best regards, Atsuko

Outstanding Shore Excursion to Kyoto

Atsuko was an outstanding guide who provided us with an oustanding tour that was probably the highlight of our 37 day holiday. She was very easy to communicate with while planning the excusion prior to the trip, and she worked with me to develop a customized itinerary so we could easily see all the sites we requested. Atsuko was an expert at using local transportation and she quickly escorted us using trains, subways, the Shinkansen bullet train, and taxis. Her english was perfect and she was very knowledgeable of the history and background of all the sites we visited. I highly recommend Atsuko and want to thank her for a wonderful experience in Japan.

Robert  R.

Hello Mr. Robert, Thank you for your kind review and comment for me. It was a long day. We planned very well so we enjoyed this tour. I was happy to hear you enjoyed it. Kyoto is a very attractive place. I really enjoyed this tour with all of you. If you have another chance to come here, please let me know. Thank you for joining my tour. Please say hello to Jeannette, Michaele and Rim. Best regards, Atsuko
