We lucked out and booked the day before. It was forecast to rain, and Koichi did a great job of figuring out what we could do with the weather in mind. He was informative and gracious and we learned a lot from our time with him. Highly recommend!

Knowledgable, friendly and easy-going. We did the tour with our toddler and Koichi was very accommodating and patient with us. He was able to tailor the itinerary on the spot given our limitations. Overall, a very pleasant experience. We highly recommend him.

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour with Koichi. He was knowledgable about the various places that we went to (Imperial Palace and Inari), and shared with us local food places that he enjoyed. Also, he kindly took photographs for us with his camera and sent the pics to us. If you're visiting Kyoto for the first time and want to know more about the history of the city and sights, he is a good guide for you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mun so much for the great review! We are lucky to enjoy early blooming cherry blossom. Weeping cherry trees located in the remains of the Konoe Residence were awesome. Also I'm glad that you enjoyed the authentic soba noodle located in the backstreet. I look forward to seeing you again! Best regards, Koichi T.

Koichi was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and had lots of helpful hints even before we had started, such as the baggage delivery service from Kyoto Station to our Ryokan to save us time going there first. We really enjoyed our day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Catherine, Thank you for posting wonderful review. I'm glad to see that my first feedback is the highest rating. I also enjoyed talking with you about our cultures. I hope we will meet again! Best regards, Koichi.
