Wonderful start to my Fukuoka stay!

Company matched me with the perfect guide- I can't say enough wonderful things about John and his tour. Fun, informative and enjoyable. I felt that this tour was far more than sightseeing- John went above and beyond to not only show me many sights but to also answer all my questions and offer assistance and advice about my remaining time in Fukuoka. An excellent experience, I highly recommend.

4 hours in Fukuoka, Your way

Masumi Endo was EXCELLENT. She was in contact with us via e-mail before the trip and was punctual, knowledgeable and flexible regarding itinerary on day of trip. We basically went on a FOOD tour of the city that was SO tasty and fun! On her own time, she came back with us on the subway at the "end of the tour time" to make sure that we got off at the right stop. Above and beyond the call of duty! Highly recommend.

Everything I expected and more!

This was my first trip to Japan and I loved it. I was particularly interested in Fukuoka’s live music scene and nightlife. My tour guide, Masumi, was excellent. She shared useful info about the city, and introduced me to some great jazz and rock venues. I was even able to catch a live concert, thanks to her recommendations. A very fun tour! Recommended!

Exploring Fukuoka with a local!

My local guide, Jessica, was just a really pleasant host. She took all my interest into account and was very knowledgable about the places. I really enjoyed my time exploring Nazoin temple and Fukuoka tower with Jessica. This is a trip that I'll highly recommend to anyone who has only 1 day in Fukuoka.
