We had a full day tour with Yuki. He took us around Tokyo via Metro. It was lot of walking, a lot of Metro stops. Yuki had to rearrange our itinerary for late take off (due to the size of our group of 15 including 3 toddlers). We visited the Sengakuji Temple, which included the graves of the 47 Ronin. The kids experienced offering some incense at each grave. There were a few souvenir stores in the area. We headed to Tsukiji market for lunch. Yuki made a reservation and pre-ordered. This allowed for a very relaxing lunch despite the size of our group. The food was reasonably priced and the sushi was excellent. We were able to walk around the market and purchase some Tamago and other food stuff and more souvenirs. We headed to the Imperial Palace Gardens and saw the Iris garden, a tea house, the ninja house and the samurai house. Due to the insistence of our young travellers, we rushed to the Sumida River cruise and made it on the last boat. We relaxed on the boat to Asakusa with sights and some on board refreshments. Yuki accompanied us back to our hotel and even helped us book our airport car service. Yuki spoke good english and was very accommodating. He took us to sights we had requested to see (which we picked since we had done the usual city tours and shrines on our previous trips). These private tours are better for smaller groups, so everyone can benefit from the conversation with the guide. I would call Yuki again on our next trip. I would also recommend first timers take a private guide to the more popular sights. They share a lot of insight about Japanese culture and customs.
Yuki is very kind and personal in his approach of the tour. He kindly accompany us to the doctor due to my son's allergy before going to the proper tour. It was very personal and accommodating and we greatly appreciate it. His knowledge of the places to go in our limited time in Tokyo helped us appreciate the beauty and culture of Japan.
I like the free and easy option, and Yuki-san brought us to some nice place for lunch. Although I believe, there is lack of information in general.
Yuki was meticulously prepared for our day trip to Hakone with our 1 year-old daughter. He had thought ahead of where we could stop and take our time so she could sleep etc. The tour itself was great fun, with Yuki sharing the history of Hakone, Lake Ashinoko, Mt Fuji and the surrounds. We had time to explore both of the cable cars/ropeways and take some fantastic photos of Mt Fuji. We highly recommend Yuki as a tour guide
We had an enjoyable guided tour with Yuki-san who is patient and knowledgeable. He speaks good English and we managed to cover quite a few places with beautiful scenic views. Highly recommended.
Yuki was very helpful in guiding us to visit Hakone to see Mount Fuji. Although the weather conditions prevented us from going on the monorail or boat, he had a backup plan which still allowed us to see a great view of Fuji from the Japanese Painting Museum. He went out of his way to reserve a restaurant for us for dinner and made it easy to find our way around and book transportation for the the trip. I would definitely recommend booking with Yuki if you would like someone who is friendly, well-mannered and considerate of your needs.
We'll stroll around the most attractive spots in Tokyo: Tsukiji, Hama-rikyu Gardens, Asakusa and Ginza.
You can enjoy Japanese delicacies from Japanese sweets to high quality dining, such as sukiyaki, tempura, eel dish or sushi. You will also feel the color of Tokyo while going down the river by waterbus. You’ll be excited to see the coexistence of old and new culture in Tokyo through this tour.
