Dai is very personable with excellent English skills. His organization of our trip fromTokyo to Hakone was perfect. We were there during Golden Week but the way he organized our itinerary we avoided the bad crowds. Our tour was fro 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM (including all the transportation) so Dai was very generous with his time and kept us on schedule. Also the lunch spot he picked was wonderful. Dai's only limitation is that he could provide a little more narrative--a little more history. But he did give us good details about every place we visited. Overall we would recommend Dai enthusiastically.
Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Bobbie. That was a long day, wasn’t it ? Yes, we did the Hakone Day Trip on May 5. So it was one of the busiest day of the year. But we made it ( I believe ). Next time if you come back to Japan, I can show you around other cities, but Not during Golden Week. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your friend. Thanks a million !!!
