We had a great full-day-tour with our guide Katsuko O. We've been to Kyoto a number of times and wanted some new experiences. She had planned the day perfectly (and checked the plan with us before we went) and that included a trip to Uji, a fantastic teppanyaki-steakhouse lunch and some sake-tasting. She knew the places, she gave some great service (sprayed us with insect repellant before a mosquito heavy shrine and so on) and most importantly for us - we enjoyed some really fun conversations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mats, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so nice meeting you and I'm pleased to know that you enjoyed the tour. I also really enjoyed the time with you and your wife, visiting the beautiful sites together. I wish you come back to Japan sometime soon. I'll try and find new hidden gems in Kyoto by them! Warmest regards, Katsuko O.

Punctual and patient, nice and friendly. Thanks for leading us to different places for visit and helping us to communicate with different shop owners. She also introduced much about the history and traditional cultures to us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jacqui, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so nice meeting you and I truly enjoyed the time I spent with you.

Katsuko tailored our tour perfectly to our tastes and personality. Our lunch at a Zen Temple was an additional bonus that just added to a magical day allowing us to immerse ourselves in all that is Kyoto. Arigatō gozaimashita Katsuko

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathryn, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so lovely meeting you, and I'm pleased to know that you enjoyed the day and the lunch at a Zen temple.

Katsuko was very knowledgeable about Kyoto, and the areas we visited. Our train stopped midway to our meet-up destination because of the Earthquake, yet we remained in contact, and she waited for us to arrive in Kyoto to start our tour. She made a good suggestion for our lunch, where we were able to get to know each other. She was also able to help us find the only train that was running, so that we could return to Osaka. Thank you for a wonderful tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stefanie, Thank you very much for your kind review. Also thank you for the effort you made to come to Kyoto, in spite of the difficulties due to the earthquake. I'll always remember the day with you and your husband. Warmest Regards, Katsuko O. P.S. I found the macadamia nuts very yummy!
