We booked Yukiko months ahead of our trip and we had lots of contact before meeting her. When we met her, she was even lovelier as our contact had us believe. She gave us so much information about basic day to day Japanese life, Japanese history, where and what to eat and all about how to ride the trains (which advice is gold dust for any traveller). All this was given in excellent English. We visited Temples, markets and palace gardens. Yukiko even phoned a shop for us as we needed to purchase a plug. Yukiko went above and beyond for us, we will always remember and look back on our time with smiles on our faces. Throughout our time together, Yukiko was helpful, funny and so very charming.....a total joy. She even had a little present for us at the end. We can not recommend Yukiko highly enough especially (like us) for first time Japan holidays.
Thank you so much for taking your time to write such a wonderful review, Debbie! I'm so pleased to hear that you satisfied the tour and it became a meaningful and enjoyable time. I felt the tour time past so fast. It was so fun to talk about similarity and difference between your country and my country. Hope to see you again in the future. Enjoy the rest of your days in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
