“ We loved our tour with Yuki! ”

We were a group of 4 girls traveling from the US and none of us had visited Japan before. Yuki spoke great English, helped us get our subway passes and JR pass and was a great tour guide for the day. He was also very flexible and took us to see a garden we had not originally planned. We enjoyed our day with Yuki and highly recommend him!

Yuki:

Dear Ashley, Thank you for taking my tour and write a nice review with the highest rating. I was very happy to guide such lovely girls with good manner. Best regards, Yuki

“ Fabulous guide ”

Yuki is everything that I had hoped for in a guide. Punctual, polite, excellent English and more than happy to modify the tour to our needs. Our day with him was filled with great memories, excellent information, and very effective use of transport options. Yuki seems to be able to move as fast or as slow as you wish and is very attentive to the group. We enjoyed both the "Must See" Tokyo, and Lake Hakone tours, the latter using Shinkansen in both directions. Wow! what an experience. I can thoroughly recommend Yuki as a guide for all of the above reasons, plus great value for the investment.

Yuki:

Dear Lindsay, Thank you for taking my tours for two days and write such an elaborate review during your tour. I am very much impressed with your detailed planning when you made the previous booking with JR pass. It was very unfortunate that you couldn't see Mt Fuji but you seemed to enjoy what you have rather that what you don't have. I hope you can see Mt. Fuji during your stay. Please give my best regards to other members, too. Yuki

“ Yokohama Tour with a Table Tennis Lesson ”

Yuki was very professional,friendly and patient with use Senior Canadian with mobility problems. We did manage with his guidance to negotiate the Buses Subways and Trains in Beautiful Yokohama. He took us to traditionalist Japanese Restaurants for lunch and the Japanese Tea Ceremony which was delightful. Added bonus he was a table Tennis Player and did arrange for 2 of us with him have a game in a private Club. Thanks Yuki for a great time Time. Ping Pong, Paul Martin

“ Great Day In Tokyo ”

Yuki responded immediately to all my communication. He was waiting at the pier for us. I chose the three recommended sites to see ahead of time. Yuki efficiently got us from site to site using public transportation. The other couple with us were able to use public transportation the next day with Yuki's suggestions. We were not as brave. Yuki used an ipad to help explain the places we visited. If you choose Yuki as your guide, you will be very pleased.

Yuki:

Dear Cynthia, Thank you for taking my tour and writing a review. We visited the most popular places in Tokyo during the Golden Week but it was not so crowded. Please give my best regards to other members, too. Yuki
