Dear Ian,
Home and starting to surface and slowly adjust to "reality". With your excellent detailed help we certainly packed in a wonderful intense variety of experiences. Your Japanese translations were very helpful and all transport arrangements clicked like clockwork. Cherry blossoms way beyond expectations.No doubt you pulled strings! Both guides were lovely and generous and flexible and informative. ALL our accoms were excellent. Ryokans and Temple totally memorable.Food was fabulous!!! Guest house Hiroo was spot on and Yoshiko was a sweet helpful blessing. Thank you so much for that. So many highlights!!!! and serendipities, delights, oddities and discoveries. People were SO helpful. After the excitements and human tsunami of Tokyo it is weird to be coming down from it all in the spacious tranquility of our lovely garden. THANK YOU!!!

Dear Ian,
We would like to take this opportunity and thank you for three very interesting and enjoying days in Kyoto and Nara. Your knowledge and very good service made those three days an experience we will not forget for long time. We also want to send our thanks to Ms. ARAI the guide you arranged for Kamakura. She as well made that day an unforgettable experience for us. She was also very knowledgeable and her service was excellent. Thank you again for your excellent service and you can be sure we will recommend your service to all our friends that plan to visit Japan.

Hi Ian,
I wanted to let you know that my private tour yesterday in Kyoto was outstanding in every way!! She was a terrific guide, we hit some incredible shrines, temples and palaces and were even fortunate enough to participate in a new year festival performance at a local shrine. I won't hesitate to recommend your services to friends and colleagues.

Ian-
Thanks again for arranging the tours of Tokyo and Kyoto for my wife and me. Ms. Ando gave us a great tour of Tokyo while Fumi's tour of Kyoto was simply superb! We'll definitely be back in touch as we want to bring the rest of the family next time. Please extend our gratitude and compliments to both Ms. Ando and Fumie.
Thanks, Ms. Natasha V., April, 2015

Ian-
Thanks again for a wonderful experience for the whole group. It was great, and you made it look quite effortless, which is the sign of mastery. Of course, you and I both know it is not effortless at all.

Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent service you provided on our recent trip to Kyoto. Many, many thanks for your thoughtful guidance. Thanks as well for the services of your delightful guide. I'm sure I don't have to tell you what a marvelous guide she is, but it never hurts to mention her intelligence, skill at interpretation, anticipation of visitors' needs, and her remarkable reserves of good humor and energy. We would be happy to recommend your services to any and all. Please feel free to use us as reference if you need us. Thanks again.

Just to let you know, Ms. Matsumoto did a very nice job for us yesterday. We enjoyed our day with her - accomplished just what we wanted to do - all very efficiently and pleasantly. She is quite professional of course but also very nicely engaging. Thanks for your help.

Dear Ian:
A big thank you for your services while we were in Tokyo. We felt very special to have such a professional and courteous driver. Our guide was delightful and knowledgeable. We could not have seen and experienced as much as we did and as efficiently as we did without her expertise. We were fortunate to have such a professional and friendly guide.

Ian,
I wanted to thank you once again for the great tours you lead us on last week. I want you to know that your leg work to find Hiroto and his family for me was much appreciated. Our visit was nostalgic and emotional -- very moving for me, and I think Hiroto as well. It was a very special visit. Thank you for the memories my children have of Kyoto. If you're ever in Milwaukee, call us. Thank you.

Ian-
Thank you for the fun time in Kyoto. I am sure that you have never had a group quite like ours. At least we got to about 3 temples/shrines and most importantly Joni and Carolyn got to shop. Your guidance was superb and you found exactly the things we were looking for. I am going to try to post a note about your services on FlyerTalk.com.
