Katsuko provided two days of fabulous tours, covering the cultural and historical highlights, while providing the history of Kyoto, as well as Japan. She arranged a tea ceremony and a sake tasting for us, and we visited Japanese restaurants for lunch. We are leaving Kyoto with a richer knowledge of the city and it's people.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review. I'm glad to know that you liked the tour. You are such wonderful couples and I really had a great time with you all. I hope to see you again in the near future. Best wishes, Katsuko

Katsuko was a wonderful guide. She suggested an itinerary for us that was great for the whole family and she provided a lot of interesting history and cultural background for the places we visited and Kyoto in general. She also followed up after the tour with an email giving some further details about some of the options we discussed for our remaining time in Kyoto. We could not have asked for more. Thank you Katsuko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lucy, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so nice meeting you all. Your children are so sweet and I felt so happy when I saw their greetings in Japanese when we first met in the morning. Please take care, and I hope to see you again sometime in the future. Best wishes, Katsuko O.

Katsuko not only fulfilled our expectations, she surpassed them. Her knowledge, insight, and courtesy were stellar. She provided what we asked of her, and even rolled with the punches as the heat made us change our plans. She gave me a day I will never forget.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeffrey, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so nice meeting you and I really enjoyed the two days with you. The appreciation you showed toward a different culture was a great source of motivation for me. I'm glad that we all survived the heat, and I also enjoyed your witty conversation! I hope to see you again sometime in the future. Warmest regards, Katsuko O.

We had a great full-day-tour with our guide Katsuko O. We've been to Kyoto a number of times and wanted some new experiences. She had planned the day perfectly (and checked the plan with us before we went) and that included a trip to Uji, a fantastic teppanyaki-steakhouse lunch and some sake-tasting. She knew the places, she gave some great service (sprayed us with insect repellant before a mosquito heavy shrine and so on) and most importantly for us - we enjoyed some really fun conversations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mats, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so nice meeting you and I'm pleased to know that you enjoyed the tour. I also really enjoyed the time with you and your wife, visiting the beautiful sites together. I wish you come back to Japan sometime soon. I'll try and find new hidden gems in Kyoto by them! Warmest regards, Katsuko O.
