Mayumi was a wonderful and cheerful guide. She made our first day in Japan absolutely great. She took us to some of the main sights in Tokyo and listened to our request to also view some more of the everyday Japanese life. She was very efficient, showed us how to get around in Tokyo and she gave us practical advice (i.e. get a Pasmo). I would recommend that every first timer in Japan a guide on th...

I presented Shin with a challenge when organising my tour by wanting a more everyday cultural experience. My initial request was very vague and wishy washy. Shin was constantly patient in working with me to come up with an itinerary. In the end we settled on a mixture of high and low culture and we packed a lot of experiences into a very fun day. Shin is very generous in his nature and keen to...

He allowed me to travel at my leisure while he navigated me through the public transportation. I saw more than what I anticipated and have many new memories. The knowledge he shared with me allowed me to navigate through the metro line, instead of using taxis, on my last day in japan by myself, which saved me money. Nothing but positive remarks.

We wouldn’t have been able to see as many areas nor be as efficient on the train without Kazu! He was an AMAZING tour guide! He also was very accommodating with our large party and understanding with a baby on board. Kazu was also very personable, showed us very interesting sites, and even tried to get us an earlier train since we finished a little early because of the baby! Highly recommended gui...
