“Kyoto Tour with Nobu on New Year's Eve”

Such a good tour! We had limited time in Kyoto and wanted to be able to utilize our time.
This tour was the perfect way to do that.

Nobu made sure we saw everything that was on our list and some areas that we would have never seen on our own.

Nobu is a very knowledgeable tour guide, as well as a great conversationalist. Highly recommend this tour!

“fantastic private Kyoto tour with Nobu”

 

We arranged a private day tour around Kyoto.

 

It was wonderful. 

 

Our guide,Nobu had a lovely clean big car and was keen to make sure we saw everything on our list and also included some personal suggestions. 

 

English was excellent and the tempura lunch stop delicious. 

 

We went in 1 day from Tokyo and would never have seen as much as we did with this tour on our own. 

 

I highly recommend this professional, friendly and informative tour.

Kyoto Tour in December with Nobu 

 

Nobu was the guide for a tour of Kyoto in December with my wife and our friends, it was phenomenal!

Nobu’s English is superb and he took us on a fantastic tour of Kyoto’s temples. 

 

Our favorite part was the off the beaten path temples he showed us.

I highly recommended Nobu for anyone who is seeking a great tour of Kyoto.

Superb Kyoto Tour!

 

I would rate Mr. Nobuaki Nagata, quite simply, as the best tour guide I have

ever met. 

 

He was remarkably courteous, engaging, charming, attentive and very

sensitive to what my family and I required on our first visit to Kyoto.

 

Everything was made easy for us - Nobu took the stress out of travelling,

allowing us to concentrate on sight-seeing and enjoying our time around the

beautiful Temples and Shrines. 

 

If you are looking for the perfect tour guide in English for Kyoto, look no

further than Nobu!

“Kyoto Tour”

 

We had an amazing day with Mr Nobuaki visiting Nijo-jo Castle, Golden Pavillion, Ryoanji Temple, Kiyomizu Temple and a secret gem away from the tourists recommended by our guide.

 

Nobuaki was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor keeping all of my family entertained throughout the day. 

 

He organised our itinerary with great detail ensuring we had plenty of time had each location. 

 

I thoroughly recommend this Tour.

Great way to see Kyoto!”

Nobu was amazing! What a great way to see Kyoto!

We visited 4 sites over 6 hours and were so impressed with Nobu’s knowledge of each location and interesting facts...

And his lunch spot, a nice local Ramen restaurant which I could not tell you where it was or what it’s called but WOW !

Great value for money and highly recommend this tour!!

Local Insight Makes The Trip”

 

Our family had a wonderful day with Mr. Nagata. 

In addition to leading us through the major sights in Kyoto,

 

Nobu gave us great insights into the local culture and history from the Shogun and Emperor roles to the history and practice of the Geisha. 

 

His insights made the sightseeing so much more interesting.

Great day with Nobuaki Nagata”

 

We had a really really good christmas day in Kyoto and had lots of fun with Nobuaki Nagata.

Nobu was in the train station platform the minute we stepped out of the shinkansen from Osaka; and without a minute to spare, we started going around Kyoto, based on the list we agreed on. 

 

Nobu knows a lot of the history of Kyoto, and also shared wonderful and interesting tidbits to us, about each place we visited. 

No questions were left unanswered. Kids had fun, and found everything interesting. 

 

Nobu is also very polite with his suggestions, and it was all good. 

Lunch was superb, and the order of the sights visited allowed us maximum tour time, as traffic was minimal. 

 

He drives an Alphard and is a very comfortable ride. 

Prior to meeting him, and during our email correspondence, Nobu was very professional and very helpful. His English is also impeccable. 

 

I will definitely tour with NObu again when Im back in the area, as he also does Kyoto environs, like Nara. Highly recommend Nobu!

Nobu - Wonderful driver and English speaking tour guide around Kyoto!”

We spent two days with Nobu as our driver and tour guide around Kyoto and he was terrific! 

We were traveling with our one year old son and two grandparents and he was very patient and helpful. 

We were able to see lots of sites in a short amount of time, but with in-depth descriptions and explanations. 

He was flexible and had great suggestions about off-the-path temples and shrines to visit that were beautiful.

We would highly recommend Nobu for anyone looking for an English speaking tour guide for Kyoto! 

He was GREAT!

Nobu took our family of 6 around Kyoto for the day, serving as our driver and tour guide. 

 

He was an exceptionally knowledgeable lead about the history and culture of the temples and old town, providing a very interesting context about what we saw that we couldn’t have found elsewhere. 

 

He made solid recommendations about how to enhance our itinerary. 

 

He was very friendly across three generations of our family and was good company.

 

He even helped us buy return tickets to Tokyo and sat by in his car while we ate so that he could be close to the restaurant.

Nobu guided me in Kyoto and Nara over the course of three days. 

 

I highly recommend him, and would be glad to make use of his services should I return to Japan. 

 

He is a consummate gentleman, well-informed about the places we went, and highly responsible. 

 

He responded very quickly to emails, speaks English well, and takes a lot of pride is showing visitors the treasures of the area. 

 

As he got to know me, and the kinds of things I am most interested in, he took great interest in finding off-the-beaten track spots he thought I'd like to see. 

 

He navigated everything from traffic to loud tourists in sacred spots with humor and aplomb. 

 

I recommend him without hesitation and hope to see him again soon!

 

 

Warmly,

Gwen Well

Great Private Tour of Kyoto

 

There were 2 couples in our group of 4. Corresponding with Nobu was easy and we received quick responses to our questions. 

 

Nobu really encouraged us to let him know what we were interested in seeing in Kyoto (do some homework re. your list of sites). 

 

His van was very comfortable and being a former taxi driver, Nobu knew Kyoto like the back of his hand. 

 

He was extremely knowledgeable and his English was excellent. 

 

When we return to the Kyoto area we will definitely use Nobu again, but will let him decide the itinerary.

“Nobu was a wonderful guide”

 

We most certainly enjoyed our 4 hour tour with Nobu. 

 

He was knowledgeable and interesting as he guided us through some popular and an "off the beaten path" sites in Kyoto.

 

We learned a lot about Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, Shogun, Zen and Rock gardens. 

 

Nobu was friendly, respectful, efficient. A great way to add meaning and depth to our brief few days in Kyoto.

“ Private English Tour in Kyoto ”

 

My wife and I booked a 7 hour tour with Nobuaki Nagata from Private English Tour in Kyoto on October 18, 2017. 

 

Nobu was very professional, knowledgeable, spoke good English and was quick to suggest changes to our itinerary as he sensed, from our conversation, what our interests were. 

 

He made our day very interesting and educational.

We arranged two guides for our group of 8 people.

We were very fortunate to be assigned Nobuaki Nagata and Hiro.

Each guide drove 4 of us in their respective vehicles.

We essentially followed each other the entire time so we could enjoy all the sites together Both Nobu and Hiro were exceptional!

Most of my interactions were directly with Nobu, and he was very responsive and patient with all my questions.

We visited interesting sites, including the unique moss garden, bamboo forest and rock gardens with faces of the artists, spent time in Gion (the Geisha area) and even had time for a delicious lunch.

The vehicles were in great shape, the price was reasonable, and the guides spoke good English.

Of all the ports we stopped at on our cruise ship, this private excursion was our favorite.

Bottom line....would highly recommend these guide(s)!!

Full day private custom tour in Kyoto - excellent and highly recommended

 

We had a few days to spend in Kyoto, and wanted to use a guide to enrich our experience at the sites and to increase our efficiency at seeing different sites. 

 

We found Mr. Nobu Nagata and excellent reviews here. 

 

Communication before our arrival was clear and prompt. 

 

The most important to us was Mr. Nagata's willingness to customize our day with him. He is cheerful, polite, warm and incredibly well informed. 

 

We spent 7h starting in the western mountains to see Tenryuji, Otagi-nenbutsu, Arashiyama bamboo forest, and then headed in a northern loop to fit in Ryoan-ji, Kinkakuji and finally Ginkakuji. It was a fantastic day, fairly packed but never rushed, and Nobu's approach to informing us and keeping us laughing was perfect. 

 

We would not hesitate to use him again when we next return to Kyoto.
