Meiko was wonderful to us. She is a complete professional. Extremely knowledgeable and prepared. She loves sharing her knowledge of Japan. We learned a great deal. We felt very at ease with her, like traveling with a friend. I was traveling with two adult children and a teen. They were all sad when we said goodbye to Meiko on our third day. If she is available give your self a treat and bring yourself much joy my touring with Meiko. She is very attentive and sweet. Loved our time with her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ana-san, Thank you very much for your kind comment and high rating. I'm so happy to know that you and your family enjoyed the tour. I myself also enjoyed every place we visited and spending time with you all during the 3-day tour. Looking forward to your next visit to Kyoto. I still have many places to show you around! Thank you again.

My husband and I always hire a private guide from Tours by locals in our numerous travels over the last 3 years but we have not met anyone like Meiko, so earnest and patiently emailing with me after extensive research to make sure the activities and our interests would be included in our customized tour. A perfect guide is resourceful, knowledgeable of the places, anticipates the needs of her client and sensitive to the pace of the client - Meiko is that kind of guide! Shirley
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shirley-san, Thank you very much for your kind comment and high rating! It was lovely to meet you and your family and I'm so glad you had a nice day. I myself also enjoyed every place we visited. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

The day with Meiko flew by. She was very flexible, patient (while our cameras worked overtime) but mostly she was very engaging and fun. We were able to see more and understand better what we were seeing because Meiko explained so well the context of our surroundings. Thank you Meiko!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Margaret-san, Thank you very much for your kind comment and high rating. I really enjoyed the tour we did together and enjoyed meeting you and Sally-san. I still have many places to show you around. Hoping to see you again!

Meiko is a wonderful guide and she organized a spectacular day for us in Kyoto. This was our second time with Meiko and we look forward to future visits with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Curt-san, Thank you very much for your kind comment and high rating. It was so nice to see you and your son again and I also enjoyed your company. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Best wishes to all of your family.

This was the first time we had used a local guide and we were delighted by our guide and the tour. We got to see many places we would not have discovered for ourselves and to learn about local history and culture in a way we would never have found from guide books. We really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martin-san, Thank you so much for your kind comments and high rating. I'm very happy that I was able to help you enjoy the day in Kyoto. I myself had a very nice time with all of you. Looking forward to your next visit!
