“ Great day! ”

Loved my half day tour with Kahoko. She met me at my hotel and we were off on our adventure. I loved how she geared our pace towards me. I like to move fast and see as much as possible. I saw so many highlights in just 3 hours - she teally takes pride in guiding her guests.

“ Perfect Tokyo Day ”

We wanted to start our visit to Tokyo with a knowledgable guide to show us the highlights of the city. Kahoko provided a highlight-filled day and more. Before the trip started, she reached out to learn more about what we wanted to see. We had a full day planned but, after we started, Kahoko was able to make modifications to our itinerary based on what we found more interesting - this was wonderful and allowed us to see some of the regular life in Tokyo. It was a long day, but so worth the tired feet!

Very Good
