Great 2 days with Tomoko. very knowledgeable and friendly. The first day, she took us on the Golden tour, and we saw all must see sights. Tomoko knew all the history to make each place come alive. Our second day with Tomoko we told her to take us to her favorite off the beaten path places, and it was awesome. We went to a tea ceramony, a private traditional townhouse and a few temples and gardens we wouldn't have seen without her. She listened to our food preferences and picked great restaurants. Awesome!

Tomoko is a very sympathetic, resourceful and knowledgeable person with a very good command of English. She has given to us an in-depth view into the extremely rich cultural heritages of Kyōto, into its historic role and development up to present time, but explained us as well the today's life in that beautiful town. She was skilful, devoted to her tasks as a guide and was ready to spontaneously adapt the tour to our interests. We can highly recommend her as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wolfgang-san, Thank you very much for joining my tour and giving me such a wonderful comment! I was happy to be your guide and that I could be with your wonderful family!I I was glad thay all of your family were interested in Kyoto's history, culture and life and asked me many questions! I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Kyoto. Tomoko

Tomoko was fanatstic. She is very passionate and knowledgeable about Kyoto. Tomoko adjusted the iitinerary to meet our needs and adjust for the heat. One of the family members statrted to feel a bit sick and Tomoko took the iniitiave to ask a store owner to let that individual rest, Tomoko showed genuine concern. She made Kyoto come to life and gave us great insight into the history. She introduced us to a historical Soba restaurant for lunch which was a treat. Great tour by a terrific guide ! Raj K

Tomoko-san ensured an amazing day in Kyoto. Her great suggestions allowed me to maximize my time while still lingering on quiet streets & in tranquil gardens. Thanks to her, I captured the wabi-sabi grace that I now associate with Kyoto in many photos. The history & context she provided me was timely & comprehensive. She even found me a yakatori lunch that that avoided shellfish - no small feat in Japan. Tomoko-san was a wonderful host thanks to her considerate and graceful company. Thank you Tomoko-san!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stephanie-san, Thank you so much for your very very kind comment and message to me. I'm so sorry that I didn't reply sooner. It was my pleasure to be your guide. You were very interested in Kyoto's culture, history and charms. I was happy explaining to you. We chatted a lot like friends! I do hope I can see you again when you have a next opportunity to visit Kyoto or nearby. Thank you very much again. Tomoko

Tomoko gave our family of four an excellent tour of several shrines, gardens and temples in Kyoto. Her English is very good and she is well versed in the local history. She took us to a GREAT noodle restaurant for lunch. She also took us through a nice shopping area which we returned to later on our trip. She also gave us some additional tips for getting around Kyoto on Bus/Subway which we used for our entire visit. Bring your walking shoes!!

We had a wonderful experience with Tomoko. She helped us plan an itinerary that suited our specific interests. She was very knowledgeable about the history and had some funny facts to keep my 16 year old twin girls attention. We truly appreciated her local knowledge and took us to specific shops for our interests. Interpreting at a local katana shop was awesome. The girls were also very excited to explore the shops Tomoko recommended. The tonkatsu lunch was the best we had! WE highly recommend her!

Booking with TourbyLocals was a good decision as we didn't have to bother about places to see and how to get there. Everything was planned and transfers efficient. Tomoko was well-experienced and very knowledgeable about the history and culture behind each sight which was a real plus in giving us a better appreciation of Kyoto. She was also very flexible and accommodating when our children requested to visit another sight not in the original itinerary. She was able to maximize our very limited time.

We were lucky we had two full days with Tomoko. She was fantastic. She started the tour by making sure she knew the sights we really wanted to cover in Kyoto - then she planned our days in the best way to optimise conditions for great experiences ( including weather ) and best photo opportunities. She always listened carefully to our questions and went out of her way to answer them. And she organised the most delicious foods including coffee, green tea, soba noodles etc for us to eat. Beautiful person!

Tomoko was extremely friendly and knowledgable, and clearly enjoyed meeting her guests and sharing Kyoto with them. She was able to tailor the tour to my specific interests and knew all the best places to visit, eat and shop. She was especially good at helping to weed out genuine crafts from touristy knock-offs. I would definitely book her again if I ever return to Kyoto.

Fantastic tour. Tomoko was able to adjust the itinerary as we had seen one of the temples she had intending to take us the day before. She is so easy going and very knowledgeable about the history. She even gave a great photography tip to get fantastic shots of the bamboo garden in the grounds of the Tenryu-ji Temple. When in Gion she took us to the quieter back streets which showed off the fantastic buildings and at this point we were fortunate to see a Geiko (not Geisha). Great birthday trip.

The attractions her in tour were the major sights in Kyoto and she helpfully suggested where we could get the best picture at each sight. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with her recommendation.

Tomoko was a wonderful guide in Kyoto. She is very knowledgeable about Kyoto - its history and customs, and shows them well. Her English is fluent. She is flexible, and can easily handle changes to the tour goals on the fly. For example, she suggested an opportunity for a kimono fashion show that all of us enjoyed. She took into account my wife's mobility issues, and we saw a great deal even with those issues. We had an excellent day in Kyoto due to her efforts. Thank you, Tomoko.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan-san, thank you very much for your kind comment! It was my pleasure to be with you in Kyoto and I'm very happy to hear that you had a wonderful time in Kyoto. I hope Kyoto tour will be a very good memory of yours. Thank you very much for joining my tour!

I had an amazing tour with Tomoko on the full Golden course tour. She is a wonderful, knowledgable guide- a true expert on all things Kyoto. What made this tour so special is not only seeing the sites but also hearing about the rich history of Kyoto's various landmarks. Not only did see highlights like the golden temple, we also visited a 500 year old noodle house and got to spot a beautiful maiko in the Gion District. I highly recommend Tomoko. i look forward to booking her again on my next trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janice-san, thank you so much for your kind and quick comment on my tour. I'm very happy that you enjoyed the tour and I hope you will keep wonderful memories of Kyoto! I'm looking forward to seeing you again when you come back to Kyoto.

Tomoko was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited. She went above and beyond to make my day very special, like fitting in a stop to see cherry blossoms since she knew where some early blooming trees were. She also showed me the best spot to look for geiko and maiko (geisha) and I was able to see at least 8 of them! Without her expertise, I would not have seen as many sites nor known much about what I was seeing. Totally worth having a local guide!

This was my third private guided tours of Kyoto, and each has been wonderful. Like the other guides, Tomoko showed us the best sites and told us about the fascinating history. But Tomoko's trip was special. Her tips helped us catch a few glimpses of Geikos (which we learned is the proper term for a Geisha)in Ponto-cho. She took us for green tea ice cream at a tea house in Shinbashi we never have found. Best of all she sang a duet of Route 66 with an American playing guitar for tips in Maruyama Park.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larry-san, thank you very much for your kind feedback. I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour and that my tips helped you.

Five stars, not enough! Tomoko deserves a lot of stars! As my stay in Kyoto was 2 days (1st time), I booked the tours "Golden Course" and "Kyoto Western Part". Tomoko prepared a specific 2-day program. The result was excellent and the discovery of Kyoto in her company will be held forever etched in my memory. I really enjoyed her company: highly professional and with her qualities (knowledgeable, fun, smart, charming, and patient), it couldn't have been better. Many Thanks to you, Tomoko san!
