What people are saying about Nishiki Market

I had a really great day with my guide Taibi, he contacted me first and had a plan in mind based on what I'd asked, he tailored this after a quick talk when we met and we set off, I was able to take as many photographs as I needed and with a real focus on my interests. He knows the city and area well, gets on with the locals too and provided me with many memorable photographs and made the day all the more pleasant with his conversation. I was even given recommendations and information for my upcoming travels. Really felt like I was treated and included as a close friend and not just a customer. It was a most memorable experience and birthday as well, and I hope to return to Kyoto before I leave Japan and intend to return in the future for a similar tour for the areas I did not manage to see.

Although not a native Japanese, Tanya is an experienced tour guide. She knows a lot about Kyoto as well as the history and culture of Japan. She contacted us in advanced with a proposal for the private day tour based on our interests. She even managed to bring us to a temple, where a traditional ceremony was held. Thank you for this unique experience Tanya!

The guide was extremely well versed in Japanese culture as well as sights and attractions. Japanese and English was fluent. 10 out of 10 would recommend this tour guide specifically Taibi.

Georgia was a wonderful guide and she was very knowledgeable in the gardens, architecture and history of Kyoto. She was very personable as well. We had a wonderful experience.

My guide, Justus, was a font of information. Loved the tour. And the history. Highly recommended.
