    My brother and I scheduled a half day private walking tour our first full day visiting Kyoto. Our guide was Miho - she was absolutely wonderful! Very knowledgeable about the area & did a great job fitting in many stops without making our day feel rushed. Throughout the day she also gave us tips on good restaurants to try, how to use the public transportation (subway & buses very popular), other sights that were must see & local shopping. It was the perfect way to start our time in Kyoto & her recommendations made the rest of our time there very enjoyable.

    Janet was great! Knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to talk to. She showed me the restaurants, street art and riverwalk around Naka Meguro station. I had a fantastic time.

    A wonderful day with my tour guide Yoshiko. We met at the A-Bomb Dome and toured the Peace Park first. A very enlightening experience and Yoshiko’s perspective was both informative and insightful. Then we took a local train and ferry Miyajima island. I did not know very much about Miyajima except for the famous red Tori gate in the sea. There was so much more there than I expected! The shrines were beautiful and the local deer were so friendly. Yoshiko shared touching childhood stories of life on the island and showed me all the best spots along the beach, the forest path, and the winding streets of the village. A truly remarkable day I would highly recommend to anyone.

    Hiro and Yuna were friendly, fun and overall fantastic guides. We enjoyed great conversations as we hopped between 3 bars, tasting wonderful food and experimenting with different Japanese drinks. We explored 3 very different types of bars and regions of Shinjuku, which made me feel like I had a deep experience of Shinjuku. This tour immersed me within the Japanese way of enjoying food and drinks with friends, which I am happy to have made through this experience. Thanks!

    I absolutely recommend this tour! My guide Mardi is clearly very sharp and knowledgeable about the history and culture of Japan. It was really great to have a guide who is truly fluent in English to answer my numerous questions. I really enjoyed eating like a local and seeing an authentic side of Kyoto. I booked the tour as a solo traveler, but never felt awkward or out of my element. I had a great time and felt right at home.

    I had a fantastic time with my guide Taku! I got to see so many different parts of Kyoto throughout the tour. I'd especially recommend Taku if you are interested in Geiko (Geisha). I learned so much throughout the tour and was recommended so many cool spots. I didn't really have anywhere particular that I wanted to see going into the tour, but Taku took my limited input and planned out an amazing experience.

    This tour was the highlight of my trip to Osaka and I cannot recommend it enough! Andy is clearly very sharp and managed to not only show an authentic look into Osaka, but also to answer all of my questions. You won't find an experience like this elsewhere.

    It was a great experience to be in the company of such a fantastic group of food lovers. It felt like we met the real locals of this tour. 6 guests was the perfect amount to eat our way through Osaka.

    Our guide Haruhi was very nice and told us a lot about specific characterics from Osaka. We tried Okonomiyaki, Takoyaki and Kushikatsu which was all very tasty. She also showed us some secret passages in Osaka and gave us tips where we could spend time Osaka on our next days. The only thing that I was missing was to try out some other foods that are maybe not too known too. But in overall we had a lot of fun!

    First of all, thanks to Viator for arranging Suga as my tour guide, 77 yr old man with super energetic and friendly attitude. People call me Suga too...I felt safe all the time with Mr.Suga... He knows the history of all the places in Osaka...Very experienced, very accommodative and we ended the tour after 6 hours 40mins (actual time for tour was 6 hours)....

    Personal msg to Viator: After confirmation, please send an email that I will receive an email about the tour guide, etc...after i paid, I didnt receive any email on the tour details , where to meet etc.. and the japan tour agency number was not clear (it was not available to speak to anyone)..luckily, FB viator helped me on this......
