Kenzo was polite but wasn't the most thorough tour guide

Kenzo was a fantastic guide, and I greatly enjoyed the izakaya tour. I learned a lot about Japanese food and pub culture, and Japanese culture in general, and was able to visit pubs I otherwise would not have known about or been brave enough to go to by myself. It was a great way to spend a Monday night. He also had excellent recommendations on other places to go while in the city. Very highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Lucy for such a great review for my Izakaya tour!! I really enjoyed eating, drinking and having chat with you. See you next time in Boston or Japan again!

Kenzo is a great guide. We were able to visit 2 Izakayas that we would never have found on our own or felt comfortable entering. We also learned a lot about Kyoto culture from him. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Shelley for the grate time of "Nomi-ni-cation" and fantastic feedback!! Good luck for your work ;)
Absolutely the best fun you can have in Kyoto!! Thanks to Kenzo we tried great food, sake and beers, and met wonderful people that we would not have been able to on our own. If you have only one tour in Kyoto, do this one!! Kenzo makes sure the evening is fun and interesting, HIGHLY recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you so much Victoria for the great comment about my Izakaya tour!! We were so lucky about the people we met at Izakaya! I didn't do anything. You just brought special connection to the local Kyoto people! Thank you again and hope to have another chance to drink together!

Kenzo was great fun and took us to some lovely places. You can agree with him what you want but need to do this in advance as many bars/ restaurants have to be reserved so don't leave this until the last minute. A great tour for a fun evening and good value.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nik for the 5-star for my Izakaya tour! I had a wonderful time with you two, taking, drinking and laughing! It was such a perfect "Nomi-nication" we made :)))

I really enjoyed this tour I tried lots of different foods and alcohol but then on top of that kenzo helped me talk to the chefs and cooks and also other Japanese customers the 3 hours flew by I was having alot of fun it was almost too short but if it was any longer I think I'd have gotten well over drunk I wish I could take this tour in other parts of japan I highly recommended this tour and will recommend it to my friends and family if they come here
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for being the first reviewer of my Izakaya tour!! Glad to know that you have enjoyed the 3 different Izakayas very much! I had a lot of fun too! Look forward to seeing you next time and have fun together again :)
