A Nice Overview of Kanazawa
Ginny M, Nov 2019
Our tour guide, Yuri, was sweet, flexible and knowledgeable. She showed us some of the more hidden places of Kanazawa, including a traditional lunch restaurant and a quaint spot for afternoon coffee and tea. We even managed to watch a local parade and learned to take the bus on our own. Thanks to Yuri for a memorable day in Kanazawa.
Really Interesting Tour
Grant and Linda W, Oct 2019
We loved this tour. Our guide Kazu spoke good English and was really informative. She was a delightful tour guide and we enjoyed her company. We did some really interesting things that we hadn’t experienced in other cities such as visiting an ancient geisha house, and a shop that made gold leaf. We enjoyed the Kenrouen Gardens and walking through Kanazawa Castle. We recommend this tour.
Excellent tour

Our guide Makiko showed us all that there was to see in Kanazawa. The tour was informative, relaxing and enjoyable and was one of the highlights or our trip to Japan. Kanazawa is certainly quieter than Tokyo, Kyoto, Kobe and Hiroshima but definetly worth a visit.
Excellent way to explore Kanazawa...

Excellent way to explore Kanazawa, our guide recommended we go to see the Ninja temple and made the reservation for us, what a treat! Highly recommended! Toshiko was knowledgeable and very pleasant to spend the day with.
