“ Excellent Way To Visit Around ”

Excellent
2 days ago Traveler: JIMMY -   Tour Guide: Yuki

This was our first time using a private tour guide and we're very happy to say all well great on our visit to Kamakura. Yuki was prompt at arriving at our hotel, taking us to the subway and around the various areas in Kamakura. The pace was great and to our liking. We even discovered that Yuki had previously lived in Chicago (where we're from) in the past. I would recommend Yuki to all.

Yuki did a great job with our family -- two parents and 4 kids ages 16 through 6. Yuki picked us up at our hotel in Tokyo, helped us navigate the Shinkansen and bus to Hakone, and guided us around the sites of Hakone, and then got us to our ryokan where we were staying that night. He called the ryokan when we first arrived and arranged to have them pick up our bags, and again at the end of the ...

4 weeks ago Traveler: Wayne -   Tour Guide: Yuki

He allowed me to travel at my leisure while he navigated me through the public transportation. I saw more than what I anticipated and have many new memories. The knowledge he shared with me allowed me to navigate through the metro line, instead of using taxis, on my last day in japan by myself, which saved me money. Nothing but positive remarks.
