Toyoko was a wonderful guide -- friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, changing her highlights tour to just Nara because of our time restrictions. She met us at the JR train, took us by bus to the Kasuga Taisha Shrine and the Daibutsuden, all while we interacted with the deer, then to the Five-Story Pagoda. She provided a sightseeing map and instructions for making a Big Buddha Statue. I highly recommend her services and would give her 6 or more stars if they were available! - Phyllis B

Toyoko gave us a wonderful introduction to Osaka. She took us to the sites we wished to see and was informative about the places we visited. She expertly navigated us through many metro stations and on and off numerous trains. She was also very sensitive to our needs, such as looking out a restaurant for lunch that could provide for my gluten free requirements (which are a challenge in Japan). She speaks very good, clear English. We highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. It was nice to meet you and please enjoy the rest of your travel.

Thank you for a wonderful tour and taking pics too!

Toyota was a very pleasant and accommodating guide. She worked around our arrival time, which was very understanding. Meeting and returning to our hotel was, for me, essential after a long haul flight. Her tour was very enjoyable and a lovely introduction to Japan.

It's a real shame that we didn't have more time with Toyoko. We had a wonderful time and quite a local experience with Toyoko. The pace was a bit frenetic but then again, we set ourselves a mission on what we wanted to see. You could see that Toyoko had our motley crew of folks (very wide age groups) in mind. Overall, a good experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. See you soon in the near future.

Toyoko was a wonderful guide, she was very knowledgeable and kind. She took us an extra temple on the way to Osaka catle that only locals go; it was the one of the greatest local experience I ever had. She managed the timeline flawlessly as we had another tour in Kyoto afternoon. She prepared a map and plans for us. I would recommend her highly to anyone. Thank you again Toyoko!

Toyoko was FABULOUS. She was knowledgeable about both history and modern culture. We ate our way through the city and introduced us to shop owners. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Her knowledge was only surpassed by her quick smile and friendly demeanor as she made us feel like old friends. We would highly recommend Toyoko and visiting Osaka. Thanks!

Toyoko is not just a knowledgeable and fun guide, she is perceptive, caring and thinks quickly on her feet, swiftly adapting the tour to your interests and mood. She will make your experience of Osaka magical and deeply touching. I know that sounds like a lot to pull off but I am here to tell you that's what happened with us. We strongly recommend her and are very grateful to have been guided by her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. Although it rained during the tour due to a big typhoon, I was happy to meet you and show you Osaka. I do appreciate your feedback.

We have just returned from Japan and one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences was our tour with Toyoko. We are amazing our friends with information on Japan, the sites we saw and the wonderfully warm reception we had wherever she took us. Toyoko was very informative, took into account our needs and desires. The sites we saw were amazing and we could not have asked for anything more. The best compliment I could give is that I think we made a friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. I look forward to our next meeting!

This was a great introduction to Osaka and Toyoko was a fantastic guide. She even helped organise our seperate Asahi beer brewery tour and sent instructions to help us arrive at the factory. Over and above for sure. Her knowledge of Osaka is excellent and no question was too much trouble. Her english was excellent and she was flexible with the itinerary when we wanted to go on the Hep5 Ferris wheel. I would definitely recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. It was my pleasure to help you book Asashi Beer tour.

Toyoko was an excellent guide. She customized the tour per my request. She was very easy to communicate with and took me to all the places I wanted to see and provided good background information on each location. She gave good instructions for navigating the subway system along with guide sheets to use when navigating. She took me to the most delicious kushikatsu place and okonomiyaki restaurants. She provide good directions and took me to the kitchen markets so I could buy noren for my home - great

Toyoko, is a charming friendly guide and we enjoyed her tour and her company. Toyoko was waiting for us on time when we left our ship and we started our tour. Toyoko had notified us to tell us that she had pre purchased a train day pass for us, this saved time and we paid her back on arrival wonderful tour of Osaka castle and other parts of Osaka including the Umeda sky building and historical areas of Osaka completed our 5 hour tour. Wonderful tour and exceptional guide.
