京都市内 Thank you Toshi for a great day in Kyoto. We asked to be shown some areas where we could see a glimpse or two of old Japan and It was wonderful to have an experience of this through the expertise of such a kind and knowledgeable person.  Your communication before the tour was excellent and from the moment we met you at the cruise terminal until the moment we said goodbye at the port we were looked after so well.  You are a credit to your country. Phil and Lynda

I hope you and your family are well and I do hope that one day we will meet again.

Kind regards

Thank you for a great day. We talked over dinner. Our 3 daughters had a fantastic all day tour. Monkies and golden pavilion were the highlights. They were tired, we are back at the house now and relaxing. See you on Sunday for round 2.

Absolutely you can!
“An amazing country with brilliant history, morals and people. Without our personal guides we would not have seen half of what we saw. Guides are a must!”

We found Toshi’s profile and realized he would be a great fit. He understood as Americans we have lots of questions and we like to talk. He was flexible and worked great around our needs and children’s needs. We explained we were going around the world and that the culture is the kids class room. He engaged right away with our kids. The second day we lost 2 and we had to change plans and he was awesome about the change. Very easy going and extremely likable. Would recommend him any time.

Toshi was like a friend you meet after long time. He was able to harmonize very quick with our family and create a friendly atmosphere. He was very flexible and open for spontaneous changing of the scheduled plans and the communication in English was very good and fluent. We had a very hard time to get along with the high temperatures during the time we were for our first time in Japan, Toshi had a lot of understanding for making stops when needed. timetable planing could be better. We arrived just to late to some places we wanted to see. But he also show us places we did not expected to see. Thank you Toshi
