    It is a great pleasure and privilege to recommend Mia to you for your Kyoto visit. She is a truly outstanding guide. Along with her impressive expertise on Kyoto and excellent language skills, she has an exceptional ability to understand her client's interests and needs and to organize a wonderful experience. Mia's tours are the best! You will be well looked after and enjoy a very special trip to the beautiful city of Kyoto. My tour was in the first week of April, 2024. I was visiting Japan from Boston, Massachusetts.

    I can’t rate Alex enough, he is a great tour guide and person. We had many great conversations covering lots of topics - not only about the tour itself but life in Japan and similar. He took us around the area of the bamboo grove, tourist and non-tourist spots with some great anecdotes and information about the area, buildings and history. We would never have gone to many of the areas without Alex’s guide, which would have been an absolute shame to miss. I will 100% be rebooking with Alex for any future trips around Kyoto.

    I just wanted to express my gratitude for the absolute pleasure from the tour myself and my dad had with Alex. He honestly could not have been any better and we had an amazing experience, hence why I wanted to write this email. I would honestly recommend Alex to absolute anyone no matter the age or background, he was an absolute pleasure. Thank you, Farrel

    I can’t rate Alex highly enough, he is a great tour guide and person. We had many great conversations covering lots of topics - not only about the tour itself but life in Japan and similar. He took us around the area of the bamboo grove, tourist and non-tourist spots (Monkey Park, Shrines, Temples, Gardens) with some great anecdotes and information about the area, buildings and history. We would never have gone to many of the areas without Alex’s guide, which would have been an absolute shame to miss. I will 100% be rebooking with Alex for any future trips around Kyoto, I advise anyone thinking about going to Kyoto/Arishiyama to book a tour with Alex as a guide as it was so much more than that. Thank you.
