Our guide, Haruhi, was very knowledgeable, conversational, and fun! We really enjoyed seeing the large variety of foods that are sold in Osaka, and hearing the tradition behind them as explained by our guide. Kuromon market is a must go. Also really loved the yakisoba!

I would like to comment on the tour Akira gave us. He was very professional, knowledgeable, of course speaks an impeccable English, was creative and kindly accommodated to some physical limitations I have. I would recommend him highly Regards Cecilia Abdenur

My daughter and I are so grateful to experience our food tour with Haruhi! She was amazing! She made us feel like family visiting Osaka for the first time. Everything we ate was the ultimate foodie experience! Thank you so much!!!

Totally unique experience!

Spent a great day with Brice who took us to places we would never have dreamed of going to. He quickly became our friend and we had a truly unique foodie experience!

The tour was one of a kind! We enjoyed all the food we were able to try and local areas we would not have ventured on our own. Highly recommend!
