Sean was our valued companion and guide during our 12-day road trip in Japan. He gave us unique insights into Japan that married local knowledge with a Singaporean perspective.
Sean was communicative and extremely helpful in planning our itinerary not just before the trip, but in suggesting thoughtful side-trips along the way. He truly went the extra mile in accommodating both of our (sometimes differing) interests during the trip, and planned an extensive and diverse itinerary that catered to and accommodated both. Our travels were well-planned and well-paced, and went off with nary a hiccup – we never felt rushed or exhausted even after a long day out.
His encyclopaedic yet intimate knowledge of Japan and its culture made our trip a truly novel and enjoyable experience that we could never have gotten anywhere else. His insights on the history, significance and little tidbits of trivia about each destination made every stop (even for food) an educational experience.
While our itinerary covered many of the more well-known (and touristy) sites in Japan, Sean also showed us the truly local flavours of the various region. Our ventures off the beaten track allowed us to discover a wide variety of authentic experiences and to sample some of the best Japanese cuisine that the region has to offer – places which would otherwise have been difficult to access or enjoy without the guidance of a Japanese-speaking local.
Sean is a master of truly exceptional service – he was always attentive and sensitive to our needs, going the extra mile to help us feel more at home wherever we were. He helped us to settle our souvenir shopping list, so that we could enjoy our last few days in Japan without worry. He also took lovely photos of us that made for very special mementos of our trip.
Sean’s sincerity and passion made our trip to Japan a truly spectacular experience, and we would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a unique, bespoke experience in Japan. We’re already looking forward to our next trip to Japan with Sean!
