        Nisa had a great itinerary planned for us and met us at our hotel to start the day. It was the perfect mix of must see sights and lesser know locations (which meant being able to enjoy the peace of the gardens without the crowds). It was clear that she put a lot of time and effort into the plans to ensure we didn’t come away with only memories of the people queuing in front of us (which happens at the more popular locations). By the end of the day, we were tired, but also very, very happy with what we were able to experience. Thank you Nisa !

        My family and I toured Kyoto with Alex. He was a wonderful guide and showed us so many cool places. He was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. He was so kind and flexible when my son was suffering from jet lag and needed to take a break for a pick me up. He had lots of great suggestions for other things to see in Kyoto and also told us to reach out if we needed suggestions or had questions even after our tour was over. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Alex!

        Very informative and personal tour. Loved it. Kanae was lovely and showed us what we wanted to see. Kanae showed personal interest in us and we went to areas that she recommended we see which was excellent.

        Alex O was an excellent guide for our 8-hour tour of Kyoto in May 2024. His like-the-back-of-his-hand knowledge of the city allowed us to cover far more ground in one day--and understand far better the significance of what we were seeing--than we could have on our own in several. Further, the unique perspective he offered as not only a long-time Kyoto resident but also a one-time resident of several countries across the globe made the day's conversation lively and fascinating. We truly enjoyed Alex O's company and recommend him enthusiastically! Thank you for your incredible hospitality, Alex!
