We booked Kenzo for a 3 day tour of kyoto and Nara. He was absolutely Amazing! We had 3 adults ( one senior citizen) and four kids ( teenagers and 2 younger kids). He was able to make everyone's day enjoyable. He accounted for bad weather by finding places where we could take breaks indoors. Always found a great place for lunch. Helped us order our sushi and even taught my kids some japanese! Highly recommend Kenzo!

We had a perfect day with Kenzo in Kyoto!! He met us at our hotel in the morning. We visited Inari shrine, explored the Kyoto station (which is fascinating!), tasted interesting things in the market, had a wonderful sushi lunch and visited the golden temple. He is so informative and taught us so much about Kyoto, Japanese food and culture—and kept even our teenagers engaged. We would highly recommend a day with Kenzo!!

Kenzo provided our family of four an awesome tour of Kyoto. His English was excellent and he told us interesting stories about all the sites we visited. We highly recommend Kenzo to anyone looking for the highlights of this very beautiful and historic city.

Kenzo is a polite, friendly and welcoming guide who I recommend to anyone visiting Kyoto. My mother and I made a special request for a four-hour tour to include dinner. Kenzo asked our budget and food preferences, and led us on an interesting evening tour through the Gion district followed by dinner at a neat little restaurant with delicious food. In his excellent English he answered all of our questions and even helped us find a terrific private tea ceremony. You will be happy with a tour from Kenzo!

My family and I had a wonderful time with Kenzo biking around Kyoto. Kenzo was informative and helpful during the planning phase. He spoke English very well, and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend booking a tour with Kenzo.

Kenzo was invaluable in helping us to navigate through the complicated train system in Osaka. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and his translations, when in the local fish market and other sightseeing areas, made the experiences so much more meaningful. Kenzo was prompt and polite. Highly recommended. I would definitely book another tour with Kenzo!

This is the third walking tour that I have taken with Kenzo, and like the two previous ones it was AWESOME. Kenzo tailored my tour tour to exactly what I did or did not want, and he came through with flying colors. His knowledge of Kyoto, her surrounding areas, and her history are impressive. Walking and talking with him is like being with an old friend- he is such a warm and friendly guy. He also takes me to the best places to eat. :D I would highly recommend spending time with Kenzo!

We loved our bike tour with Kenzo! He chose a wonderful route through Kyoto and took us to some beautiful spots away from the crowds. He had a lot of great information to share and his English was excellent. It was a very hot day but our teens didn't complain as we cruised through the city with Kenzo. It was a definite highlight of our trip. The ramen spot Kenzo picked was great! We kept the bikes for the afternoon and Kenzo helped us make a plan on our own. We'd highly recommend Kenzo without hesitation!

We had a great time with Kenzo doing the 4 hour biking tour of Kyoto. Very prompt and efficient delivery of bikes, enough things to keep my boys aged 9 and 12 interested, and very knowledgeable about questions we asked. He also helped us figure out how to see monkey park and bamboo forest on our own using the train system. Highly recommended!

Kenzo shared the best sights in and around Kyoto with us for a full day. It was wonderful to have him organise our travel on trains and in taxis to see amazing temples, shrines, forests and shopping areas. Taking a tour with Kenzo is a MUST.

Kenzo S is out standing! Bright, cheerful, knowledge, the best. Sites we choose to see Kenzo's understanding and communication skills in English were flawless.. The experience to have a local guide to answer questions about Osaka and Japan in general on a private tour is the only way to visit. Tours by Locals also gets five stars, highly recommend it as well as Kenzo S.

Kenzo was amazing! On time and stayed with us for more than required:). He got us taxis and bought the tickets everywhere and had his own short cuts to beat the crowd! He even made us dinner and lunch reservations which was not part of the job description! Very good English and knowledge about Japan. You will definitely be in good hands!

Kenzo was knowledgeable and flexible. He had a general idea of what we wanted but he quickly adapted the tour to suit our preferences. He was fun and we loved spending our day with him here in Kyoto. He was very passionate when describing and explaining about Kyoto and he is a GREAT photographer. If anyone wants to have great photos, you have to ask for Kenzo. We will definitively look for him next time we visit; in the fall to see the wonderful foliage he described to us.

Absolutely fantastic, Kenzo was really helpful and fun to spend the day with. We travel around the world and usually visit places by ourselves but I am 100% convinced that we would have never had such a great experience without Kenzo. He knows the town inside out, best routes, and his knowledge of the city history has no match. 5 stars

Kenzo is fantastic! We decided to visit Kyoto & a local guide seemed best for us. We discovered Kenzo & having excellent reviews and qualifications, quickly booked him. Kenzo was a great choice. His knowledge of Kyoto (& Japan in general), the places to see & the ways to get there was excellent. He tailored our Kyoto tour based on our mobility & interests. His enthusiasm ensured a very memorable experience. Note, Kenzo hosts tours in Kyoto, Osaka & Nara & we will definitely use his services again.

Kenzo was very knowledgable about local markets and the name of the different kinds of fish that were being sold there. He even knew how to prepare some of the local delicacies. He was also very helpful in finding the answers to some of our questions. I would most certainly request him again on my future trips to Osaka.
