Brilliant tour

My guide (keiko) only had me as a tourist. When your just 2 person you are more flexible and the guide can explain and show more things. My guide knew everything and the chats were very good and friendly. I really enjoyed this trip. Thanks.

Our guide was friendly and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Lots of different sights, sounds, smells and tastes and places that we would never have found on our own.

Great tour!

Had a fantastic time learning more about Japanese culture & food. All the food was yummy and we went to some pretty interesting places not only the market.

The game in Osaka was an amazing experience to do with kids. We enjoyed it a lot.
