We loved having Lisa as our guide. She was friendly, caring and attentive. We had teenage kids so they enjoyed her style also. She communicated quickly to our messages and worked on a few options until the itinerary met our needs. She was also a good walker so we were able to keep a good pace. She even made sure my wife was able to find a vegetarian meal by asking the shop owner to create somethin...

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...

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...

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...
