“ Hiromi took us to all the places we wanted to go - she is great! ”

1 hour ago Traveler: Ariana -   Tour Guide: Hiromi

A full day in Tokyo can be exhausting - we knew that and it actually proved to be a bit more than we had thought. Hiromi, however, was very well organized and included all our wishes as best she could, even though it meant rushing through the streets of Tokyo to get everywhere in time. We started off at our hotel and headed to Akihabara to visit a cat cafe that we had asked her to take us to - it...

I booked Toshihiro as his previous reviews were so good and he did not disappoint. The one day tour was a great way to see so many sites and get to many different parts of town without the hassle of planning or getting lost in the subway system. Toshihiro is a true gentleman, very patient and considerate with impeccable manners. We would definitely recommend booking him.

Toshihiro is a kind and attentive guide who knows his way around Tokyo. We had him for two days and we are already missing his reassuring presence. I suggest you stay 5 nights in Tokyo and hire a guide for two days and then go by yourself. Tokyo is a very easy city ... to get lost in, even using Google Maps as the GPS signal is irregular because of narrow streets. Good Luck !!

Yumi is a wonderful guide. We had a fantastic day with her. We were able to visit a lot of great places which we would never have found by ourselves. She explained the metro system which is so complicated especially if you can’t read the Japanese signs. We loved the shrines and the temple we went to where we learnt of the symbols and how to offer a prayer. She took us to various shopping places wh...
