Hiroko was an amazing guide to Shimizu. She gave us a wealth of interesting, relevant information about Shimizu and Japan as a whole. She showed us everything we wanted to see and was able to give in-depth answers to all of our questions. We felt like we were traveling with a friend rather than a guide. A special lunch was arranged with a local small restaurant serving hand made noodles. It was Wonderful ! You would be lucky to spend the day with Hiroko

Our family of 3 enjoyed a wonderful full day tour of Shimizu thanks to Hiroko. Our cruise ship changed its itinerary as a result of a typhoon and we were fortunate to find Hiroko at the last minute. She is extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful and personable and fashioned a tour that worked well for all of us, including my wife who is mobility impaired. We have taken many private tours. Hiroko earns our highest recommendation. Martin S.

Hiroko is the BEST tour guide I can honestly say I've ever met. She was organized, had physical maps and photos to explain places, spoke English extremely well and displayed a lovely personality and sense of humour. Our group decided that of our 4 Tours By Locals' tour guides that we used in Japan and South Korea, Hiroko rates #1. She made our day very memorable and we have not hesitancy in highly recommending her.
