What Do Our Guides Say?


I’ve been registered with GoWithGuide for a little over a year now since going freelance and very happy with it as a service provider overall. Importantly, I find from my own research online and in feedback from guests on my tours that it’s among the most accessible for prospective guests doing a guide search. It’s been my experience that GoWithGuide provide comprehensive support for registered guides and customers alike. Payment is prompt following the tour.


GoWithGuide is undoubtedly the best platform in matching independent tour service providers with the world-wide Japanophiles wishing to experience customized and mostly off-the-beaten path tours and activities that are not possible with the typical tour package/company set up that the world has ever seen. They have a very accommodating staff team to support each guide in setting up their careers and profiles and the system itself is very good in providing the best possible tour guide-choosing experience for the prospective clients by acting as the perfect intermediary in all aspects of the transaction making it a win-win thing not only for all parties concerned.


My name is Richard and I have been a Guide in Japan for many years. I started with GoWithGuide a couple of years ago and my bookings not only went up, but as for working with an agent, these guys are the bomb! They answer my questions as well as my potential client questions in a professional and timely manner. They keep me abreast of guests needs and sometimes it does not feel I am working with an agent at all. Very friendly, very professional.I am happy to be part of the GoWithGuide family and hope we can continue our relationship well into the future.


Estoy basado en Tokio y trabajo como guía turístico en español, portugués e inglés para GoWithGuide por más de 2 años. Ha sido genial trabajar con una empresa tan confiable. Cualquier nuevo comienzo es difícil, pero GoWithGuide siempre me brindó el apoyo necesario siempre que surgen nuevas dudas.
