Mitsuyuki is a great guide! He picked us up early, took us to some great sights in Kyoto, was considerate of the physical limitations of some of the people in our group, and very knowledgeable. His English was excellent, and he is a very safe driver. Make sure you are aware of the additional charge for tolls that will have to be paid at the end of the tour. We highly recommend Mitsuyuki!

Friendly--at lunch chatted baseball with my father but wished he had said more about the history/culture without us having to ask. Helpful--When we needed help getting the wheelchair over a curb he was there to help us Understanding--Due to things not under his control we had to cut the tour short Driving skills--quite good/excellent especially on the small roads. On time which is always appreciated

Minimal information was shared about where we were.
It was a great tour from Osaka to Kyoto and Nara in a day with Mitsuyuki who was very accommodating and friendly. He has a lot of knowledge on the places we visited and great to learn the history of those places. Thank you again for a lovely day although we had rain all day long. I would highly recommended Mitsuyuki services.

We had a wonderful and memorable experience with Mitsuyuki. He is very punctual. He drives his own van which is very clean. He was very flexible about it our last-minutes changes to our itinerary. He made us feel welcome and not rushed. He never gets tired of driving. He is polite, but intelligent - he is very knowledgeable about the places where we went, including the Nishiki Market. He has a thorough knowledge of Kyoto's local streets and traffic patterns to avoid heavy traffic. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your excellent comment. My experience as a taxi driver in Kyoto for 4 years is very useful to my present job as an English tour guide in Kyoto. I'm always trying to accommodate my customer's requests. I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed the Kyoto tour with me. Please come back to Japan.
