“ Best Guide Ever ”

We have had several good personal guided tours in many cities before but our tour with Mayumi was an outstanding experience. We are a family of four with two teenage boys. Mayumi was genuinely interested in our family and connected with each one of us. -planned a suitable, timely itinerary geared towards the teenager's interest while also introducing some Japanese history in an engaging way -Mayumi stopped at our hotel prior to our arrival and left us a letter regarding an enquiry we had regarding data plans for our phones -Mayumi is adaptable, patient, is very fluent in English -She made invaluable suggestions in terms of how we can search for reasonable, good local Izakaya style restaurants. This is extremely helpful as many restaurants in Tokyo can be very expensive. -After the tour, Mayumi suggested that we contact her if we had any further questions. She was willing to do anything for us (she even lent us her cell phone for a few minutes). It was both a pleasure and a lot of fun to spend the day with Mayumi as she has a nice personality and many different interests. We will definitely try to meet with Mayumi again one day. Thank You Mayumi Greg, Colleen, Michael, Thomas

MAYUMI:
Hi Colleen, Nice to hear from you! It’s a great honor to receive such an amazing review. I enjoyed visiting a lot of places with you. Thank you very much for everything you got me. The happy memories of the day encourages me to treat my future guests as thoughtfully as I can from now on too. I definitely want to see you again. Until then, I’ll keep improving my skill as a tour guide so as to entertain you much more! Please give my best regards to your gentle husband, Greg and your handsome kids, Michael and Thomas!

“ Toyko Tour with Mayumi ”

Our flight was a day late and we were dying of jetlag, forcing us to cut our tour with Mayumi short, which was a huge bummer because it was our best tour in Japan by far! Mayumi made it very easy to communicate beforehand, and accommodated a lot of last minute changes. She helped us make some phone calls and figure out where to take a nap when our jet lag got the best of us. She seemed to know literally everything about everything, and was more of a very wise buddy than a walking encyclopedia. We had actual fun on our tour and learned a ton not only about what we were there to see, but everything else we had questions about. She checked in on us after our tour to ask if we needed anything also! Mayumi was cool and laid back and fun and we wished she had been our guide for the rest of our trip!

MAYUMI:
Dear Rebecca, Thank you for the great review. I enjoyed myself being with you. I believe that your curiosity is the driving force for your creativity. I’d like to hear about the crazy cart tour. As I recall, we had rain in Tokyo at night. I wonder if you could joined it…. And I can imagine how excited you were at the ryokan. Were you able to sleep well on a futon? Anyway, I’m sure you could enjoy every minute of your travel because of your infinite inquiring mind. If you had not been dying of jetlag, I would have shown you more places and people in Tokyo. Please come back to me again, and we’ll be able to have more exciting time together. Thank you again and say hello to your pleasant friend.

“ Superb full day tour of Tokyo ”

Mayumi did an outstanding job showing the Tokyo sights to my family. Prior to arriving in Japan she recommended many options for places to visit and experience. We worked together to select a day full of activities and experiences, from cultural to cuisine. She arrived to meet us a few minutes early, of course polite, smiling, and with fantastic English speaking skill. We reviewed the plans for the day and set out to tour Tokyo. Along the way Mayumi shared her knowledge of Japanese history and culture, explaining the historical significance of the various monuments, shrines, and temples. Always pleasant, she took a number of photographs of our family as we toured. We enjoyed a meal together where she introduced us to Japanese customs associated with eating a meal. We walked many miles and as the day concluded, Mayumi made sure we were returned safely to our hotel. The following day she emailed us copies of the photos she had taken with her camera along with well wishes. My family and I enjoyed her company and were well informed and entertained during our time together.

MAYUMI:
Tom-san, Thank you for writing such a fantastic review, while running all around Japan. I really appreciate the opportunity you gave me to spend the great day together, Your thoughtfulness is overwhelming and I’d like to pass such sweetness I learned from you to all my future guests. I still have other attracting spots in Tokyo and nearby prefectures, so please come back to Tokyo again. Hope you’ll have beautiful days and enjoy every minute wherever you visit. Please say hello to Hoang, Michelle, David, and John.

“ So many highlights in just one day! ”

There is so much to see and do in Tokyo, and it's spread out all over the city. Mayumi was the perfect guide, showing me all the sites I wanted to see at my pace. I loved that we had the chance to see all the spots I'd mentioned wanting to see, but also to stop and spend more time seeing what the day brought: A festival, a parade, a couple having photos taken after their wedding. Spending the day with Mayumi, who lives in Tokyo, made me feel like I was getting a look at life beyond the guidebooks, while still seeing all the guidebook-worthy sites. Highly recommended!

MAYUMI:
Hi Jennifer, Such a pleasure to hear from you in spite of your busy days. Thank you for the great review. I’m happy to hear that you fully enjoyed that day. We were lucky enough to encounter a lot of impressive scenes, weren’t you? And thank you for telling me of the interesting life in Alaska including moose. I got interested in everything you told me. Please come back to me again, and I’ll take you to the wilderness in Japan next time because I’m a nature enthusiast and love to hike and cycle as I told you. I’m really looking forward to seeing you again. Mayumi

“ 5 star guide for the family! ”

Mayumi is an exceptional guide and hands down the best we’ve ever had. Before our tour she was in constant communication with us about our wishes and meetup time/destination and made all the relevant bookings for our special requests. As soon as we met her she was full of energy and smiles. She felt less like a guide and more like a friend showing us the city. In a very relaxed atmosphere we visited a lot of cool places tailored to our interests. She was extremely accommodating towards our two boys (9 and 10) and ensured that we all had a fun time on the tour. Her English is excellent and none of us had a problem understanding her. Highly recommended = 5 stars!!

MAYUMI:
Thank you, Nina for the great review. Despite of the limited time, we fully enjoyed the day. I was impressed by how well all of you made the food sample. I can imagine that people will be tricked when they see the food sample placed on your table. How funny! It was very hot and so crowded in Asakusa, but your kids were willing to walk around and gave me a big smile. Thank you again!! When you are in Japan again, let me show you other interesting spots. Please say hello to Max, Alex, and your pleasant husband.
