We had a very fun, informative, and enjoyable whole day tour with Yukiko. I highly recommend her as a guide. Five stars! She has been very helpful and accommodating to all of our requests and preferences and always prompt to answer queries plus her tips and recommendations are invaluable! Even helping us with other concerns on our Japan trip which we very much aporeciate. It truly was a joy to have had her as our Tokyo tour guide. Thank you Yukiko for being so friendly, fun, and professional at the same time:) From the day I booked the tour online, till the day of the tour, she gave us useful tips on helping us make our tour of Tokyo comprehensive and fit to our preferences. A worthy mention of our unforgettable tour with her aside from the usual must-sees in Tokyo, is the lunch we had at Tagetsu (which she recommended and promptly booked for us). In our group is Alfonso, a chef from Spain. We were all overjoyed (esp. Alfonso) with the amazing kaseiki dining experience that Yukiko set for us at one star Michelin, Tagetsu. Not only was the food superb, the chef/owner also happily obliged on Alfonso's request to view his kitchen! Incredible experience indeed! Yukiko was highly knowledgeable on all things Japanese---history, culture, etc.. plus her great command of the English language and wonderful personality made the tour with her one of the highlights of our Japan trip. Thank you again, Yukiko! And a special thank you for the dragon origami for Miguel. He loves it and how very impressive it is to be able to make such exquisite artwork! Very precious indeed!:)) Domo arigato. Best regards! Belle, Miguel (Manila, Philippines) Alfonso (Oviedo, Spain)
Yukiko-san is an outstanding guide to have with attention to details. She made our holidays a happy and memorable one.. Not only she heard and guided us, she took her own initiative to write down on a piece of paper in Japanese on some of the special request when dining. Thank you very much Yukiko.
Yukiko was a knowledgable guide and very accommodating. We had a family of 4 who were with us and they were strict vegetarian. Yukiko was very flexible and she offered some really nice eateries during the tour since we had extra time. She also made us a perfectly timed schedule, giving us the opportunity to see what we wanted. All members of our group really enjoyed the tour.
I asked for cherry blossoms and seafood for my wife, and history and pop culture for me. All of the stops had a lot of history that I would not have known about and it was nice to talk with Yukiko. This is much better than any group tour and costs less for a family of 4.
Our day with Yukiko was more than I expected and the experience was truly personalized. Yukiko went out of her way to make sure our day included sights we wanted to see not just the normal Tokyo tourist spots. We communicated several times before the tour so she was able to have a sense of our interests. Most of all she was enthusiastic and informative. She was able to explain details of all our sights and helped us to understand the history of Tokyo. Pacing was great and she took care to make sure there were lifts and escalators available. She even advised us of spots to see on our own while in Tokyo. We couldn't have had a better experience.
Yukiko was a pleasure as a guide. We enjoyed that she arrived wearing a traditional kimono, and we appreciated the visits with her to Meiji Shrine, Rikugien to see the weeping cherry blossom tree, a fun Yakitori, a quick visit to a Cat cafe and Ueno Park for more cherry blossoms. Yukiko was kind and flexible, adapted to the needs of our kids (9,15,18) and arranged things on the fly as the weather turned. She brought extra umbrellas just in case, and provided great information and guidance along the way.
