Thank you Hiro!! Amazing day in Kyoto

We enjoyed from the first moment with Hero, he is an asset for your company. The experience to go with Hiro like best friend from Kyoto. We enjoyed visiting all the temples but also walking the shops and streets from Kyoto, he brought us into an amazing coffee shop for taking a break and also a Napolitan Pizza Restaurant that was awesome for my daughter. We will meet you again for sure!! Big hug Hero!!

Hero I.

Yes, it was very nice to meet your family. I was wrapped by the passion of Spain and Italy. Your family treated me as one of your family. So it was great journey. Thank you for sharing great memory with me. I got more confidence about pizza restaurant after accepting by all of your family. Because you know real. I will search the best toilet more for princess. Have a good trip. Have a good trip. Hugs for all.

Fun evening with Hero

We had a really nice evening in our arrival in Kyoto with Hero discovering local market and food. Despite it was an holiday in Japan and many shops and restaurants were closed, he manager to plan a really good evening. We do recommend this tour for a good evening in good company.

Hero I.

Thank you very much for your kind review! I appreciate how you respect Japanese customs, foods, and culture. Also, he treated me to many fancy foods such as sashimi, beer, beer, scallop, Japanese sake, and Okinawan foods. I could start 2023 with an excellent night with you and Simon!! Merci beaucoup! C'est la classe!!A bientot!!

Fantastic market tour

Although we have visited Nishiki market many times before, having a knowledgeable guide this time opened our eyes to many new things and allowed us to learn more details about different types of foods. We also enjoyed walking through Gion afterwards. Highly recommend this experience!

Hero was a great guide who showed us so much of Kyoto

We booked a 7 hour welcome tour with Hero and this was one of our best days in Japan. He is a great guide, very knowledgeable about the city and also had a great sense of humour. He kept me and my wife and our two kids 16 and 18 entertained all day with a great mix of historic shrines and temples as well as stops to sample loads of local food specialities. He arranged a great ramen lunch and later took us to a food market as we had asked if we could learn about Japanese food. We all agreed that this was one of our favourite days as we were able to learn about the history of the city and the temples and also try some food with a local. Hero definitely showed us areas that we would not have found using google, and for that we are very grateful. Thank you Hero for being a great guide. Happy New year! 明けましておめでとうございます

Hero I.

Thank you very much for following me today. It was a lot of fun with your great family. I also learned many local things in England. Thank you for treating me ramen, beer, salted squid, karaage, etc. I am happy how your family try to understand Japanese attitudes, language, thinking, yakuza. Let us discuss about underground things more next time with beer! Oh yeah?! Did I beat google? I am so proud of this compliment. Appreciate a lot. I wish your family would spend great time in Japan more and more. Have a great journey! Happy new year! 明けましておめでとうございます。来年も何卒よろしくお願いいたします。;)
