Kevin, our tour guide was fabulous... informative, friendly, accomodating and calm, going out of his way to help us. He showed us the popular sites and gave us the facts in droves but he also gave us an insiders view of life in Osaka taking us to the local spots, helping us order off menus, book bullet train tickets and even buy a power adapter! It was so good we took another custom tour the following day. Kevin transferred us from Osaka to Kyoto, taking us to sites best accessed by car knowing we would be doing walking tours the following day. It was then we realised we’d left our passports in the previous hotel safe. Kevin was amazing, communicating with hotel and organising one of his colleagues to bring the goods to us in Kyoto. Can not rate him and his tour company highly enough.
