So glad i met this tourguide!
Oct 2020
My Matsumoto trip was AWESOME, thanks to Sylvain! I intended to only see the castle on this trip. When i originally contacted Sylvain, he asked me what else i may be interested in and suggested many things. I ended up doing activities i would have never considered! It was such fun. Sylvain is professional, knowledgeable and courteous!
