“ First time in japan ”

1 year ago Traveler: Clint -   Tour Guide: Lisa

Lisa was very polite, punctual and overall very friendly. Thank you Lisa for being courteous and entertaining while showing me around despite having time only for a short tour. I enjoyed seeing the temples and gates especially since it was my first time in Japan. Hope to keep in touch. Thanks Lisa!

“ Kyoto experience ”

1 year ago Traveler: Zenia -   Tour Guide: Lisa

I dont know where to start with Lisa! She really went out of her way to ease my stress during our trip. My mother forgot her insulin back home and really needed her meds during our trip. Lisa did not give up, phone call after phone call trying to find my mother her meds; after 4hrs she succeeded. Lisa made everything smooth for us, from helping out with directions to Kyoto, to making herself avail...

“ A fun time with in Tokyo ”

1 year ago Traveler: Ralph -   Tour Guide: Lisa

Reserved a day tour with Lisa to experience efficiently the places that the locals go to and that we did! So off to the highlights. The day started off visiting Tsutaya in Daikanyama, a bookstore from yesteryear with a cafe and a Starbucks (surprised?) housed in one place but not under one roof. Then to Omotesando to see the architectural buildings from the 1980s to the present, including th...

“ Tokyo for the first time ”

1 year ago Traveler: Geraldine -   Tour Guide: Lisa

I did enough research to learn that it took a bit of time to pair up with an English speaking local around my age since I wanted to do a combination of touristy & local spots that I was interested in + private tour for a single traveler. So glad I found Lisa thru TripleLights! She has a flair of trying to get to know her clients well enough to try to tailor her tour to their liking as much as poss...

“ Super Awesome Tokyo Tour with Lisa ”

1 year ago Traveler: Tina -   Tour Guide: Lisa

This was my first visit to Tokyo. Thanks to Triple lights I found Lisa....She is exceptional in her knowledge about the places. I had booked the half day tour, with very little time I had to see the city, Lisa was great in covering all the places. She is very accommodating, helpful and caring. She helped me with my train tickets, helping me get the right vegetarian food, clicking pictures for me....

“ Tours: Dec. 3, Dec. 4, Dec. 10, & Dec. 11 ”

1 year ago Traveler: Henry -   Tour Guide: Lisa

Guide Lisa knows much about Japan's history, and that translates into an easy rapport when questions are asked. Although "new" to the business, her friendly nature and fluency in English help 'gaijin' appreciate Japan's many wonders. She'll adjust a tour's pace to fit the needs of elderly clients, even if younger members of the group rush ahead. She can miraculously find where hidden ele...

“ Lisa is great! ”

1 year ago Traveler: Adam -   Tour Guide: Lisa

I have worked with a number of different guides in Japan, all of them excellent, but Lisa was the best! Her English is excellent, and she is extremely knowledgable and thoughtful. I couldn't have asked for more. Although she looks quite young, she actually has many years experience guiding professionally and as a volunteer, and it showed in every facet of her work! Couldn't have been better.
