How do I know that the guide is competent?
All the Magical Trip guides are screened before we select them as a Magical Trip guides. After this, we require each tour guide to undergo a training program so that they understand their role and responsibilities. As well, fluent english language skills, experience in a international atmosphere and local knowledge about Japan/Japanese culture is required. While the tour guide is responsible for the actual tour development, we provide templates so that no details are forgotten. However, the best way to know about our guides of course, is to read the ratings and uncensored comments by customers who have taken the guide's tours, posted on the relevant guide page. We hope you'll try out tour guides who don't yet have any ratings (and then rate them yourself). They have an unique story tell - otherwise they wouldn't be part of the Magical Trip team.
Do you offer tour in other languages than English?
We are not offering tours in other languages than English at this moment. Sorry for the innconvience.
