“ Great Day in Tokyo ”

Yuki was a great guide. It was really nice to have a personal guide, who gave us many options on how we wanted our day to go. He was right on time to start the day, and the day had a good pace. His english was very good, and he brought us to a great place for lunch. I would definitely use him again when we travel back to Tokyo.

Yuki:

Dear David, Thank you for writing nice review of my tour and highest evaluation. I am very glad to know you enjoyed my tour. Please come again! Yuki

“ Memorable visit to Hakone ”

We took the tour of Hakone with Yuki on Oct 4, 2018. It was a cloudy day with little amount of rain hence we were not able to see Mount FUji. Mr. Yuki had already informed us about it but still we went ahead with the trip. We saw the Hakone Open Air museum, Gora Park, Ropeway to see the volcanic valley and tour of Lake Ashi. The trip was well organised and paced with Mr. Yuki, though we were lagging behind in time in our trip but still Mr. Yuki planned our trip in such a way that we did not miss out on seeing any sight seeing places and enjoyed our trip to Hakone even if we could not see Mount Fuji.

Yuki:

Dear Puja, Thank you for your review. Sorry for the poor weather, but I did my best for your tour. Best regards, Yuki
