Osaka: Local Food Beyond Dotonbori Small Group Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 3 hours
Andrew was knowledgeable of the area and the Japanese culture. My main concern was to get acclimated of the area I was in and locating the meeting points of my future tours. Very helpful. I highly recommend hiring a private guide upon arrival, especially if you’re a solo traveler. Two hours is too short of time if you want to go to various sites. Depending on where you’re staying. I was in Umeda. Thank you Andrew for your fine hospitality!
My guide Sebastian was a student from Manilla with 1 year in Osaka. Able to speak Japanese and know the way in metro/walking around. Even before arrival he contacted my via whatsapp, which I thought was really good and helpfull. He had patience to guide me around while me taking pictures, and took good care of me with regular places for rests, coffee and lunch. He was really very nice and he showed me the key things. Thanks Sebastian!
Sivana was an exceptional guide with a great energy and exciting conversation. Very well informed about the unknown aspects of Osaka n Osaka culture. She very quickly found our preferences and showed us a side of Osaka not mentioned in the tourist pamphlets. Very helpful in giving us recommendations for restaurants and night life activity for us to do on our own after the tour, which were indeed great.
Our guide, Kohei Yukami, was charming and friendly. He was flexible in choosing where to take our group and made fantastic choices based on what we wanted to try. Each location was wonderful. The food was delicious and the drinks were a great match. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Osaka that wants a local food experience and a fun night out. It was pretty perfect.
My mother and I visited Osaka and felt we needed a local guide to help us navigate the city and provide some background on the locations we wanted to visit. Our guide Juan was absolutely fantastic. He was knowledgeable, friendly, organized, flexible and pleasant. He made our visit one we will always remember. I wish all guides were so great. I cannot recommend him enough.
