    Keiko was our personal guide during our tour and we are very satisfied with her level of professionalism and commitment to what she is doing. Almost one month before our planned visit to Kobe, she began to correspond with us to know more about our expectations and our desires regarding the visit. It was very important to us that our guide interacted with us ahead of our trip to Kobe since 1)we only had a half-day to discover the town 2)it is our first time visiting and maybe the last one as travelling from our country to Japan is a very expensive trip. Keiko planned everything according to our desires and our visit went smoothly on the scheduled date even though it was raining most of the time. These were the highlights of our visit: the old foreign areas on the hills, the Herb Garden that was accessed with a ropeway, the Meriken Park, the point of the impact of the 1995 earthquake and the luxurious department stores alley. Using the public transport (bus) was an interesting experience for us. Keiko took us back to the Kobe Shinkansen station and guided us to the Kobe Beef Gallery that we would have not missed. Our warmest thanks to Keiko for having helped us to know more about Kobe in a very short time and for having welcomed us into her hometown. The concept of having a local as a guide is very important and reassuring for any (inter)national visitor to an unknown and resilient town, such as Kobe. Best wishes to Keiko. Hope to meet her again in the future.

    We were extremely happy with the appointed local tour guide Mr. Hiroki Katsuno in Kobe. He was very helpful and gave us a lot of information about the city. Special thanks to him for his kindness and warm hospitality.

    We successfully met our guide, Keiko, as arranged and she was a delightful guide to aspects of Kobe that we would never have considered. We started with the old foreign quarter and then took the rope way up to the Herb Garden. We used public transport to get us about and again Keiko was able to navigate us successfully from place to place. We finished in the” MERIKEN Park” and were impressed by the memorial to the Earthquake. After an enjoyable four hours Keiko helped us to find our way back to the cruise terminal using the free shuttle. A truly enjoyable and informative tour.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our personal tour through Kobe city with Keiko. The communication prior to our tour was exceptional. On the day of our tour, Keiko took us to areas of Kobe famous for it's history and sites. Keiko's knowledge base of Kobe was extensive and made easy for us to understand given her perfect english. We loved our day with Keiko and would highly recommend this tour for people with limited time that wish to see Kobe.
