Toyoko gave us an outstanding experience in Kyoto. Her efficient itinerary ensured we maximised our time as well as used local transport to our best advantage. She was open to itinerary ideas and gave us suggestions on which rail passes would best suit our needs. She took a genuine interest in our enjoyment of the day & kept a caring eye out for any particular need. Kyoto has far too many sites to manage on your own & Toyoko's expert knowledge ensured we could visit the highlights. Highly recommended

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much

Toyoko is an Excellent Tour Guide. She arrived at the Cruise Port early and gladly waited while we cleared immigration. She speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable of the history of this area. She guided us thru various train and bus stations and assisted with our Bullet Train Ticketing. Our Tour focused on the excellent Kyoto Railway Museum and Toyoko was knowledgeable about this subject. All in all, we had a wonderful day, fine lunch and pleasant conversation! Thank you Toyoko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. It was very nice to meet you.

Toyoko san provided the perfect input and guidance for a great day in Kyoto. She was very kind and knowledgeable. And, the sequence of the trip was planned so well that the sun was shining on The Golden Pavilion from a position for perfect pictures. We maneuvered our way, with ease, on foot, trains, subways, cablecars, and buses. I think we hit all of the key locations for a one-day tour in Kyoto. It was a memorable day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. It was a perfect day for sightseeing and was nice to meet you.

It was a memorable moment for us in Kyoto and we are grateful that we have chosen Toyoko-san to guide us there. Toyoko-san is knowledgeable on the surrounding places and provide detail the history of places that make the tour more interesting. Besides, with her guide we can be at most of Kyoto attraction places within a minutes which we'll be in trouble if we were to discover by ourselves. We highly recommend Toyoko-san to bring you in experiencing the uniqueness of Kyoto.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much.

We had avery considerate guide in Toyoko. Since we were staying overnight in Kyoto, we had our backpacks in tow from our hotel in Namba. So Toyoko had to check us in before we started our tour. This delayed us a bit. We were supposed to go to Arashiyama after Kinkakuji but time was running out since we were meeting another guide in the evening for Gion walking tour so Toyoko was quick in giving us another option, the Ryoan-ji Temple. We really appreciated her for this. She made sure we covered as much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. It was nice to meet you. I appreciate everything.

Toyoko is an excellent guide. She made sure that all my queries were answered and even helped us arrange things before our trip. She is very knowledgeable about Kyoto and made sure that we have a great time. She even comes prepared by having printouts of maps that helps make Japan's train system look easy to understand. Me and my family enjoyed her company and we're so glad to meet someone like her. If ever we decide to go back, we will definitely avail of her services again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much.

Toyoko did everything she said she would and did so in a friendly, knowledgeable way: Met us on time at the ship, traveled with us to Kyoto, guided us through all the sites, and saw us onto the bullet train back to Kobe. The rainy day didn't slow us down at all. We would pick her as our guide every time and rate her 5 out of 5 Thanks very much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. Please visit Japan again. You're always welcome.

If you are looking for a friendly and insightful guide then Toyoko is the one for you. She has surprises me more than once on how well prepared she is.From drawing maps to learning about my diet restrictions and home country, she has prepared them all before the start of the trip! I hardly have to explain to her about them since she has done her homework thoroughly. Toyoko is thoughtful and knowledgeable. I wont hesitate to use her service should I ever visit this part of the world again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much. That was my pleasure. I hope there will be another opportunity to meet again.

Toyoko was very polite, flexible, accommodating, helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our visit to Kyoto although it was a pity we only visited a limited number of attractions as we spent too much time looking at & shopping for local crafts. Toyoko was very kind to add an attraction towards the end so that we were able to have a more fulfilling tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much.
