Things to know


    We had a terrific day in Kanazawa with our tour guide Karolina. She is from Poland and speaks excellent English and Japanese. This really helped in communicating with us, as well as, getting answers to our questions from the Japanese vendors and experience hosts. Since she also lives in Kanazawa, you could not tell that she was not Japanese because of her mannerisms, so the experience was very authentic. She could very clearly relate the history of the places we visited, but did not bore us by overly doing so. After answering a survey questionnaire, Karolina was able to develop a terrific itinerary for us that included a gold leaf experience, wagashi workshop, great place to eat lunch, and most of the recommended sites in Kanagawa. Although she kept us on schedule, we did not feel rushed at any spot. She responded to all of our pre-tour questions in a very professional and timely manner. Since it was supposed to rain on the day of our tour, she even carried 3 extra umbrellas with her! So if you plan to visit Kanazawa, book a tour with Karolina. It will be 8 hours well spent!

    We took an 8 hour walking tour in Kanazawa, Japan with our guide Jorge who we booked through Cities Unscripted. Jorge was a fantastic guide who took us to countless memorable sites while offering great explanations about every place we visited. The best part was that he let us choose where to go and how much time to spend at each site. He is a great guide.

    Our 8 hour walking tour of Kanazawa with our guide Jorge was fantastic. He took us to so many memorable places and gave us great information about them. One of the best parts of working with him is that he listens to what you want to do and see rather than dictating where you go.

    Mohamed is a great tour guide. He helped us all around the city to see things we wanted to see. He even got tickets to an event that had been sold out for a couple weeks. Great work!!
