Because there are so many different tour guides available, it was a shot in the dark to choose a good guide. We looked at the pictures and made our decision. I'm not certain of another methodology that would assist in picking the right guide.

Hiroko was a great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about all of the sites that we explored including Kinkaku-ji, bamboo forests of Arashiyama and Ryoanji temple. Her English was good and easy to understand. She helped maneuver our party of 8 including a two-, six- and eight-year old as well as my two elderly parents throughout Western Kyoto with ease from site to site. She was very flexible in accommodating the pace and sites of the tour to work for everyone. Definitely tour with her again.

Hiroko was a wonderful guide. We enjoyed the day traveling with her to many of the sites on the western side of Kyoto. She came to our hotel on our first day and taught us how to navigate around Kyoto on public transportation and how best to use to the few days we'd be in Kyoto. We enjoyed learning about the Samurai and the subtlety in the designed of Shirines and Temples used to aid their defense. We had a great first day with her and it got us off to a great start.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Annie, thank you very much for spending your time to give me a lot of comments! Yes, all of us enjoyed the day in western side of beautiful Kyoto. I hope you'll make another plan to visit Japan and look for more interesting places and things for you. Please say hello to your family. Best, Hiroko

The tour of Kyoto was excellent. The tour was customized to go to sites that we selected and to fit within a time constraint that we had. Hiroko had the tour well planned and provided a lot of detail and background information that made the tour much more enjoyable and beneficial than a standard tour. She was very personable and knowledgeable about Kyoto. This was my first experience with ToursbyLocals and I will not hesitate to use them again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Harley ! That was busy but enjoyable day for us. Kyoto is a special place to sightsee with a long history. Please visit us again and feel another face of the city. Take care of yourselves ! Hiroko

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Thanks for your thoughtful feedback! We look forward to introducing you to more of our excellent guides on your future travels.

Hiroko was very nice, friendly and helpful (she even taught us how to buy train ticket to airport...) . She was the first Japanese that I associated with and she impressed us with her natural kindness. The nice weather made our tour so pleasure as there were quite a lot of walking to see beautiful temples with nice natural greeny gardens around, gorgoeus bamboo forest and nice peaceful local shops. This tour made many wonderful memories of a beautiful Japan country.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bich Ha Dao, thank you very much for giving me such wonderful comments. Yes, we spent the beautiful time in Western Kyoto with temples and bamboo forest. I don't forget. Once again, I appreciate you chose this tour. All the best, Hiroko

Hiroko is an excellent tour guide. She met us at our hotel lobby and guided us through the train stations to the bullet train and ropeway on the way to the Himeji Castle and Garden. Hiroko knew the train schedules extremely well and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for the next train. We had a wonderful day exploring the castle, and the Engyoji Temple. Hiroko also showed us how to sit and enjoy the moment. Hiroko shared her knowledge and experience with us and we recommend her without reserve

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Cecelia, Thank you very much for your comments and stars for me ! It was very fine day and we visited the temple, castle and garden in a day. It's a long day for us, but I find all of you enjoyed every places. Also happy tour to spend the day for your first visit to Japan. Best, Hiroko
