Date: Nov 18/19

Ahmed was an informed and delightful companion to the Golden Temple and Fushimi Inari, someone who conveyed a fascinating outsider's perspective on life in Japan, and who took a real interest in my own questions. Warm and communicative, Ahmed obviously enjoys meeting people and sharing his own fascination with Japanese history, religions and culture during a memorable and enjoyable afternoon! Thank you, Ahmed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your wonderful words, it really makes me feel happy and glad you enjoyed the day with me. You are such a wonderful persosn to spend time with and i am glad i met you here. Wishing to meet you again here in Kyoto.

Tour: One day private tour in Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan
Date: Oct 4/19

We made a booking for a tour of Kyoto and were escorted by Ahmed. After meeting us perfectly on time at our hotel we were asked what we wanted from the tour to ensure Ahmed gave us the best possible service. We had a full day of seeing all the sites we wanted, this was done at a pace that suited us and Ahmed was very flexible in his approach. Ahmed showed a great local knowledge and was able to give us a real understanding of the city and its attractions. Would highly recommend Ahmed - well done....!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike, it was a great pleasure touring with you in Kyoto. You and your wife were wonderful and greatly thankful for the nice time we had. I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and my services. Wishing to see you again in Kyoto.

Ahmed was a fantastic guide, he carefully planned the itinerary to ensure we saw all the main sights and it was suitable for our two children. He was very knowledgeable about Japanese history and traditions and was able to tell us many details about the areas we visited. Communication was excellent and he also organised a very good driver to ensure we got around easily. The lunch spot was also fantastic sampling traditional dishes. I would highly recommend Ahmed to anyone visiting Kyoto!!!!

Date: Dec 29/18

My adult daughter and I had a lovely day in Kyoto with Ahmed. He was very flexible on the sites to visit fitting in with our wishes. He made suggestions on the order to see them in which meant we saw two of them before hordes of other tourists ascended! And most importantly Ahmed went above and beyond by chasing a taxi we had just got out of when my daughter left her phone in it ... and he was successful! Thank you Ahmed for suggesting a great lunch restaurant and adapting to our wishes.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tanya, Thanks a lot for your nice words, i really enjoyed my time with you and daughter, i wish to meet you again here.
