“ Terrific day out in Tokyo ”

Excellent
7 hours ago Traveler: Robert -   Tour Guide: YUKIKO

I had a wonderful day out in Tokyo with Yukiko experiencing Japanese 'kawai'. We visited Yanaka Ginza and the Harajuku area with a highlight being the Owl Cafe. Yukiko was an excellent guide, spoke English flawlessly and truly customized our 4hr tour to the requests I made. Tokyo is a wonderful city and my experience was enhanced by Yukiko's guidance.

“ Dai is incredible! ”

7 hours ago Traveler: Jeffery -   Tour Guide: Dai

We had a group of four and sent Dai a list of things we were interested in and he did an incredible job of planning a great day around the things we wanted to do. He was informative and personable. His schedule was aggressive but he was very accommodating. The little things are what separated him from any tour guide I have ever had: He was attentive to how long we wanted to stay places, could anti...

“ Tea ceremony ”

Very Good
8 hours ago Traveler: Carol -   Tour Guide: Hiromi

Hiromi found a place that would do traditional tea ceremony on a Sunday which apparently is unusual in Tokyo. Hiromi and the lady who conducted the tea ceremony were both very knowledgable and interesting. Hiromi also took us to a small garden that was very peaceful and pretty yet still in the middle of Tokyo. The day was very enjoyable.

We had an 8 hour layover in Tokyo. When initially contacting Kyoko to set up the trip, she always had prompt, professional responses and recommendations.

My husband and I loved our tour with Akira. He was friendly, knowledgeable, had great English and made our first day in Tokyo truly wonderful.

He also took us to an amazing lunch we wouldn’t have found on our own and a coffee shop that inspired Blue Bottle in the US. Bo...

We new we had a short day and wanted to experience Tokyo from a cultural viewpoint. He was able to accomplish that by using the subway to get to all corners of Tokyo . We visited 5 or 6 sites, walked a lot and got the feeling of Tokyo that we wanted. His recommendation for a "Tokyo" lunch fit right in. Highly recommend him to others

My husband and I booked a four-hour tour with T-chan. She worked with me in advance of our arrival to determine what sights we wanted to see and was super easy to work with. Her English is excellent and there were no issues with communication. She met us at our hotel and we walked to the subway station. This was planned out and I believe she will accommodate to individual requests. She showed us h...
