Kevin was awesome. Professional, knowledgeable, and gave us the perfect experience. Easily would’ve taken us 3 days to visit the sites on our own... and we certainly would not have had the context provided from the tour. With COVID a continuing concern, having a vehicle to transport us around instead of hopping on and off a dozen+ trains and busses, was a comforting benefit. Will use this service again when other family comes out to visit Japan in the future.

Hi Gforce, Thank you so kindly for writing such a gushing review! It was my pleasure to show you and your family around Osaka. I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed yourselves so much, and found the guiding to be professional and knowledgeable. It's our goal to provide our valued guests with information about local history and cultural insights, all while having a fun day :) Thank you also for taking the time to write this review. It's easy to forget about writing a review, so I really appreciate you sitting down and sharing your thoughts with the Tripadvisor community.

My wife and I booked a tour with Liran Levy on our first day in Osaka and couldn't have had a better experience. Not only was Liran extremely knowledgeable about the city's history, sites, food, and culture, he was genuinely enthusiastic about sharing it. He went out of his way to get to know us - where we were from, our interests, our plans for the rest of the trip - and from that point on treated us as he would friends or family whom he was taking around town. If you view travel as a learning experience and prefer a glimpse of real, daily life to a "canned" tour, I strongly recommend booking a tour with Liran. And tell him Dave and Laura said hi!

Dear Dave and Laura, So nice to receive such a positive review of our Osaka Food Markets tour, and even more so during these Covid times when no virtually one can come visit us in Japan from other countries. Levy absolutely loves Osaka, but then again, so do all our guides that run experiences in this most boisterous and quirky of Japanese cities. He will be so happy to hear your kind words. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us here on Tripadvisor. May your future travels be wonderful.

Our guide spoke good English which made this tour enjoyable. We walked through the streets of Osaka and he provided interesting commentary. He took us to markets which tourists don’t visit and we found very interesting. We also went to the castle and our guide was very informative on the history of this castle in Osaka. As our guide spoke Japanese well he also helped us with getting train information timetable. A good way to see Osaka around the castle area.

Thanks for taking the time to review our walking tour. It was too bad you had to cut the tour quite short due to your personal circumstances. I think you would have given this a 5 star if we had gone until the end! Regardless, we very much appreciate you choosing Pinpoint Traveler.

Levy was a great guide and able to change plans with all the corona shutdowns and I mentioned that I was all templed out. We visited a few food places instead and definitely saw some places I never would have found on my own. Got some great knowledge and history on the tour as well

Hi Louis, Thanks for the review! Levy knows Osaka like the back of his hand, so he's great at changing tour stops on the fly to meet our customers' desires on this private tour. We appreciate you taking the time to review us, and wish you happy travels in the future too!

The tour was great as was Kevin. It rained a lot and a few places closed due to Coronavirus but we still had a full day of fun. Kevin is very knowledgeable about the history and culture. I highly recommend the tour.

It was so unfortunate that some things were closed and the weather was poor, but I am so happy to hear I was able to show the three of you a fun time out nevertheless! We had some good laughs too! It was a pleasure to make your acquaintances. Thank you for this very kind review.
