    Due to my father's mobility limitations, our tour guide Hiro fully customized the plan to reduce the amount of walking. We ended up visiting Chinatown and taking a Kobe harbor boat tour and enjoying various snacks, which were all very tasty. He shared lots of local insights and we discussed many things. He also gave us tips on other things to do after the tour, including Kobe beef restaurant recommendations.

    Great tour and tour guide! Tour was perfectly tailored for me. My interests were eating, shopping and learning about Kobe and it's people. We had a great lunch at a Kobe beef restaurant, toured some great shops and went on a cruise. Highly recommend this tour!

    I had a wonderful time with Hirotake! He was so down to earth and easy going with a great personality! He was also very flexible and patient. He allowed me to make changes to the schedule as I saw fit. Knew all the best places to eat and got me into a restaurant that I couldn't have booked on my own which was greatly appreciated! I'll definitely revisit Kobe thanks to him!

    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.
