My family and I spent a wonderful day being shown around Tokyo by Akio. He met us when and where we asked, speaks English well, has a great sense of humor and made us feel like we were out of town family. We got a great overview of the city, he took us where we wanted to go, recommended additional places we might want to see, and brought us to a fantastic (and reasonably priced) sushi place for lunch. We never felt rushed and he was extremely patient with us all day- even though we went passed the time we had reserved. What made it special for us was not just what he showed us but also watching how my teenage boys really connected with him. For a small group of first time visitors who want an easy paced tour, Akio is a great choice.

Akio:
Hello Patrick I am very happy to note you arrived home safely and you wrote such an impressive review on my guide. I couldn’t be more thankful. I wish you, Sherry, Liam and Ryan many more years of happiness, health and prosperity. Best regards Akio

Akio was extremely knowledgeable about Tokyo sites, history, and train system. We found his company extremely pleasant and informative.

“ Tsukiji Fish Market Tour ”

Akio promptly met us at our hotel to take us to Tsukiji Fish Market Tour in the morning. We toured the inner and outer shops - it's a fast paced market place and was good to have someone take us there, navigate the way around since we didn't have much time. Go and see the market before they move!

Akio:
Dear Leslie, Many thanks for your 4-star review. Please visit my ******* page of Akio Horisaki where three of you in pictures are posted. Thank you again. Akio

Akio was very polite and punctual. However his English was not so good and he offered very little explanation of the sights we saw. It was difficult to understand what he was saying and difficult to have a conversation with him as he didn't listen very well. We wanted to go to the fish market which was not on his usual tour however he did take us but there was nothing to see as it had finished so it was a waste of time and lots of time spent on the subway. As a client it would be better for him to be honest and to tell us that as a guide to perhaps go another time. To be fair He offered alternatives like Ginza street but we didn't want that. Akio looked after us well on the many subways and trains we took. I would only recommend him for 2stars and really only for jJapanese groups wanting a very limited tour of the sights as I don't feel his English was good enough.

Akio:
Dear Emma, Thank you very much for your candid comment about the tour guide service I have offered you. I regret that I didn’t satisfy such wonderful people like all of you, but I had a good lesson from you for which I must thank you. Akio

Akio does not understand English as well as we had hoped and we did not get very much explanation about the places in Tokyo we visited. He was helpful in getting us from place to place by subway. For 80 years old, he does have a lot of energy.

Akio:
Dear Jason, I regret that I didn’t satisfy such wonderful people like you and Carole, but I had good lesson from you for which I must thank you. Akio
