My wife and I spent 2 days with Meiko at the beginning of November. She is very professional, wonderfully well organised, and an excellent educator. She has a delightful sense of humour and comes across as being a very special person who you would be honoured to have as a friend. We've had a number of guides in different countries over the years and none have been better than Meiko. We recommend her unreservedly as she has created one of our very best memories of this wonderful trip to Japan.

Meiko planned a wonderful day. Prior to our tour she contacted us with suggested itineraries and meal options. She gave us detailed information during our train ride from Kyoto. She was an amazing guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna-san, Thank you very much for your review. It was lovely to meet you and Tom-san and I'm very glad you had a nice day in Nara. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the near future!
Meiko was generous with her time to ensure we had a memorable experience. Her knowledge of and passion for the area and its history was outstanding. Meiko took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch that served food specific to the area. Having a private tour allowed us to ask lots of questions and have interesting and fun conversations. Thanks to Meiko for a great day.

Meiko was kind and patient in Nara and let us hang out with the sweet and very tame deer at the park! My girls couldn't get enough deer pictures! It was a bit hot that day so when we were starting to fade mid afternoon she kindly arranged for us to hit an air conditioned museum that turned out to be one of the highlights of the tour. It was full of national treasures! We loved the Golden Buddha Shrine and had a great lunch at very authentic noodle shop. Meiko is a delight and we enjoyed our time with her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review and high rating. I also enjoyed the day with you and your family. :D I hope I can see you again sometime in the near future!
A very enjoyable tour. Meiko is very friendly and informative. She went out of her way to make it a memorable experience for our family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review and high rating. I hope you'll have a chance to visit Japan again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Nara with Meiko. She is extremely knowledgeable and enabled us to appreciate so much more the buildings and objects that we saw. She has a good command of the English language, and is also a very pleasant and happy person. Thank you, Meiko.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comment and high rating. I also enjoyed the tour and had a very nice day with you two. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and look forward to your next visit to Kyoto.
