Nobu was so unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable and it was great to see so many places in such a short time! I definitely can not wait to go back to Japan! Nobu was so nice and I definitely would recommend for anyone who would like a fun and educational time!!! Thanks Nobu!!!

“ Great Day In Tokyo With Nobu ”

We needed both a guide and driver to pick us and our luggage up at the end of a cruise. Nobu arranged for the car and driver, arrived promptly at the cruise terminal at the time agreed upon and was extremely flexible with our itinerary. We couldn't have asked for a better one day tour of Tokyo. Nobu is a very kind and knowledgable man and we would not hesitate to hire him again. He even helped us with our luggage at our hotel at the end of the day. Thanks again for a great day, Nobu!

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Kathy. I am glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour with me. I am Looking Forward to seeing you again in the future! Nobu
