Keiko was great

We asked her for a short tour our first day in Kyoto to get us acquainted with the city, and she really put together a good program with 3 temples, some stores, some street vendors, the old quarter, and a bar by the river. All that in 4 hours! She recommended a restaurant for after the tour, which turned out to be great. Her English is fantastic. Keiko is just a really smart and flexible person who can put together what you are looking for, I'm sure. She is actually from Indonesia but has lived in Japan for several years and is currently a student in Kyoto, so that was an interesting and different perspective we thought. Highly recommended. Kent and Luca

Brilliant, friendly, well planned local

Our tour was with Chiharu and he was lovely. From the moment he met us at our accommodation he was tremendously friendly and kind. He took us to many of the highlights every tourist should see in Kyoto but also took us to some much less crowded and beautiful places that we had not thought about visiting. He took such good care of us recommending his favorite coffee shop close to where we are staying, making sure we had eaten or were planning to try all the important dishes of Japan and helping us get dinner reservations. He listened to what we enjoyed doing and explained so much about many of the sites we visited. Out of 5 I would give him 10. Booking was also very easy and Koin did a fantastic job communicating with me. If you are looking for a friendly, well educated, easy going local to help you find your way in Kyoto this is the tour for you.

Great tour in countryside away from city

We loved this tour. Chiharu was an excellent guide since he was local and knew the area well. We wanted to fo beyond the city and see the country side, normal life and the mountains. This tour was great for that as the train ran up the mountain through villages and also a magical Japanese Maple Forest. Our guide was patience with us as the hike was fairly steep at times. Food along the river was excellent and a wonderful experience. We were exhausted at the end of the day but totally recommend the company and the tour.

Chip M.

Dear Chip, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We're thrilled to hear that you loved your tour in the countryside. Chiharu is indeed an excellent guide, and we're proud to have him on our team. It's fantastic that you got to experience the beauty of the countryside, the normal life, and the mountains. The train journey through the villages and the Japanese Maple Forest sounds like a magical experience. And it's great to know that you enjoyed the excellent food along the river—it's always a delight to showcase the diverse culinary experiences Japan has to offer. Your recommendation means the world to us, and we truly appreciate your support. If you ever find yourself back in Japan or if any of your friends plan a visit, we'd be honored to host you again!
