3 weeks ago Traveler: Lori -   Tour Guide: Atsuko

My family and I had a fabulous visit to Tokyo. Atsuko spent two days with our family showing us the highlights of this city. It was great to have help navigating the subway system, locating good restaurants and a knowledgeable guide to answer all of our questions. We were able to see more places than we would have been able to tour on our own. Atsuko was a pleasure to spend time with. She desi...

“ Not the best experience ”

Good
1 month ago Traveler: Christopher -   Tour Guide: Atsuko

More disorganised than expected. The biggest disappointment was spending almost an hour in a queue for Tokyo Sky Tree entry. We had stated in advance that we loathed crowds, yet were taken to the Sky Tree late morning at peak queuing time. In prior email exchanges we had received no guidance that advanced web booking or fast track was available! Unnecessarily sapping and such a waste of time that ...

Atsuko was a joy to tour with. She was very knowledgeable and patient in meeting our needs and making adjustments that suited our mood. She's been doing this a while so understands how to customize based on your interests. When we head back to Japan, I will certainly look for her service once again.

We had a great outing with Atsuko! I emailed her ahead of time about our sightseeing plans and interests, and she designed a custom tour for us that included a Sumida river cruise, Ueno Park, and lunch. She even found some cherry blossoms for us! My kids were excited to have a tour that was centered around their interests in Tokyo. I would definitely recommend Atsuko!

The positive experience with Atsuko started from the first email I sent to Atsuko through the Triplelights site. Feeling very overwhelmed about the possiblity of taking myself around Toyoko i decided to find a guide. Unfortunately with no referrals i had to choose someone blindly. I immediately liked Atsuko's profile, her eperience in travel and the fact she had been a flight attendant. She...
