Excellent guide and great company

We started the day heading to Mt Fuji from Tokyo. A public holiday. What a traffic jam for 40 km. Moses was calm and smooth. So many examples of just how well he knew the area. Such a special Lunch. Follow his suggestions. I had seriously injured my knee a few yams earlier. He amended the itinerary to save me too much waking. And great conversations. Just book him

Michael G.

Thank you so much for your generous and kind review Michael. I am happy that you had a great experience in our trip. It was a blessing for me also to meet you and take words of wisdom from our conversation along the way of the tour. Haven't felt like it was a work for me but an experience meeting you with lots of intellectual ideas. Hope this is not the last but just a beginning. Looking forward to work with you again in the near future. God bless you.
