It was the best decision ever! Shin-san was our driver for the day. He is very kind. This is the best way to do the tour especially when you travel with kids.

Our driver, Hiro-San was excellent, he goes out of his way just to tour us to the amazing destination in Kyoto though it's not included in the tour as being a tour guide. He even arranged our airport transfers from our apartment to Kix Airport. However, an 8 hour tour is not enough to tour the whole city of Kyoto. Thanks Hiro-San!

Our driver Mr. Rosi was great! He accomodated all our request, he showed us “secret” peaceful and beautiful sites w/c are not crowded, and brought us to restaurants w/ great food. We were very comfortable during our tour and we’ll definitely book him again when we go back.

We visited Nara and Kyoto in one day with this tour. Mr Nagano was our driver. He is very professional and polite and tried his best to accommodate all our requests. He showed us the best view of the attractions and make sure we have a nice group photos!! 8 hours was used efficiently and worth it!!!

Highly recommended! Our driver was very helpful. He helped us to the sites we wanted to see, and advised the most efficient way we could get there. He is also very honest. We left one of our powerbank in the car, and the driver went out of his way to return it to us even though it was already very late.

This is one of the best services I have ever received! I am glad we decided to do a private tour instead of joining a normal tour. Our driver was so kind, helpful, and acommodating. He spoke english and we had no problem at all communicating with him. In fact, he would even give us a brief description of the places we were passing and visiting , even though we knew he did not have to do that since we only secured the car and driver services. BUt it was very much appreciated! He went out of his way to accommodate all our requests. 10stars !
