Driver/guide was friendly and knowledgeable, knew area well and could answer our many questions well. She ensured we saw the sorts of things we wanted to, and also made sure there was enough to see and do to (almost) hold the interest of 3 pre-teen through full-on-teen boys. She knew great viewing and food spots, and she directed us to the shops and stops that met our interests; we did change the itinerary a bit on the fly. Car was spotlessly clean, spacious, and incredibly comfortable (quite a bit of driving/riding is necessary). We were lucky in many ways the tourists are not (yet!) back in full force, and were so happy to be warmly welcomed by basically everyone we visited. We leave with great photos and even better memories of a truly unique place in the world; our very kind and helpful guide/driver was a huge part of that.

Nozomi Kondo gave us a really superb guided tour. Spoke excellent English. Knew her subject perfectly. Amusing and bright personality. Went well over the allotted time to ensure we saw everything and then sent extra information by email for the next day and to help us with our travels.

Enjoyed a night tour of the geisha district with Aya as our guide. It was informative and interesting and Aya took us to a great restaurant where we had our first taste of oden noodles. We really enjoyed the experience and the knowledge of our guide. Thank you Aya Howard and Sue

We wanted to thank you very much for two wonderful tours. The trip out to Takayama, Shirakawa-go and Ainokura was amazing. While the expected snowy scene at Shirakawa-go didn’t happen, we had a great time wandering through the streets and ended up getting a beautiful snowy setting at Ainokura which was a real highlight for us. Yuuta was a fantastic host and his knowledge and english skills really made for an enjoyable day. Today Yumiko was able to step in at short notice as Tony had a family matter to deal with and she did a fantastic job. Her english was excellent and we learnt so much wandering through the Samurai district, the castle and gardens and the geisha district.
