Amazing tour with an even better tour guide!

We completed our tour last week with Violeta. She was AMAZING! While being very informative, Violeta was the most caring and personable guide we've ever worked with. She took great care of us and had us laughing all along the way. If you're thinking about this tour, just book it, you won't be disappointed!

Dear Jeffrey, Violeta's been in Osaka many years, and her knowledge speaks to this. But perhaps even better, we also love her kind and personable nature. At Pinpoint Traveler, we believe that showing people the sights is just a part of the mission. Having fun while doing it is also of utmost importance! Thank you for taking the time to write this highly complimentary review. We really appreciate it!

My friend and I had a great private tour with Mardi (and associate!). Mardi's explanation of the city's history, it's uniqueness, and the market wandering were terrific. It was a side of Japan we had never seen. She was engaging and funny. Recommend that you let travelers know there's lots of subway rides - that was a surprise and an unexpected additional cost. For tourists without IC cards, it would be miserable. (We had them.)

Dear Lover of Travel, Thank you for your review. They mean a lot to us! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed Mardi's narrative and the sights you saw. As for the cost of the subway rides, we clearly state in the "What's Included" section of the tour info page that transportation is not included, and that it will run around 800 yen. Sorry you missed that bit when you bought the tour.

5 minutes late.

Trains took a lot longer than expected and unfortunately we arrived exactly 5 minutes late. We tried joining up at the next spot, but could not find the group, did not know what we were looking for so eventually gave up, was hoping there might be some flexibility but no. Don't be late

This review was written when our tour was not sold as a private tour, but rather a mixed group tour. In those days, we simply could not hold up everyone more than five minutes for latecomers.

Covers a lot of ground in a short space of time. Walked a lot. Just the right tour if in Osaka for a day. Guide was lacking in knowledge of history of Osaka.

My brother and I had a wonderful time exploring Osaka with Kevin. His knowledge of the city meant we visited sites we would otherwise not have seen. He went out of his way to ensure my brother, who is confined to a wheelchair, was able to access all the sights along the way. Kevin's dry sense of humour was an added bonus, as was his recommendation for dinner that night. The tour is a must for visitors who would like to see more than just the main attractions and learn a little about life in Osaka.
