Great experience for first time visitors to Osaka. We were lucky that our tour guide Mouloud spoke French on top of English. He is very knowledgeable, speaks Japanese very well and provides great explanation on Osaka's history.

Mouloud is an amazing guide. He is punctual, friendly and very knowledgeable. Since my husband and I speak very little Japanese we were grateful to have him around.

ガイドブックには載ってない見落としてしまう様な場所を案内してくれると、このガイドの方の魅力を感じることができたなとおもいます。子連れでも、授乳スーペースや、オムツを替えれる場所なども案内してくれているので安心できました。日本語、英語、フランス語も流暢で安心出来ました。 歴史好きならぜひ彼にガイドを任せて見て下さい。ありがとうございました。Merci beaucoup :)
