“ Great tour even in the rain ”

Yuki-San was very knowledgeable in Japanese history and culture, and his English was excellent! In spite of the rain, he planned the day to ensure we got to experience each of our desired destinations. He was very considerate of seniors in our group, always using escalators/elevators when available and attending to their needs.

Yuki:

Dear Caren, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review. Sorry for the poor weather, but you are lucky to observe the wedding at Meiji Shrine. Please give my best regards to your family and relatives. Yuki

“ Visit of the Imperial Palace ”

He came to pick us up from our hotel, which was very convenient. At the palace, he provided all the informatiom we needed, even showed us slides. After the tour, he suggested a great local restaurant.

Yuki:

Dear Robert, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review. We are now in the rainy season, but the weather was very comfortable without any rain. I enjoyed my lunch at the same restaurant. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki

“ Great experience ”

Yuki was knowledgeable but at the same time flexible to respond to your personal interest. His energy, professionalism and courtesy were all great assets. I recommend Yuki to all visitors in Japan.

Yuki:

Dear Loc, Thank you for taking my tour and write such a nice review. We went to Lake Kawaguchi to see Mt. Fuji in a cloudy day. You were so luck to take a glance of the mountain in such a poor condition. Best regards, Yuki

“ Imperial Palace Tour ”

Yuki was great! He was so patient with us and all our many questions. He not only took us on the guided tour but also went out of his way to give us tips on how to easily navigate our way around Tokyo, and more!

Yuki:

Dear Patricia, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review so soon. It was a rainy day, but better than the hot summer days. I am glad that we made the special tour of the Imperial Palace. Please enjoy your stay and foods in Japan. Tower knife on the 4th floor of Soramachi shopping center next to Tokyo Sky Tree is the best place to buy Japanese knives. Best regards, Yuki

“ Kyoto on Bullet Train ”

Travelled from Tokyo to Kyoto and back with Yuki. Yuki picked us up on time and diligently had prepared all matters for our trip - trains , taxis, lunch and what meals to have , he was extremely friendly and spoke excellent English and knowledgeable of all aspects of Kyoto. We toured the famous sites of Kyoto and had a wonderful time shopping and eating in the areas as well. AAA+ service 👍🏼‼️

Yuki:

Dear Steve, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review with the highest rating. It was very hot in Kyoto on the day so we skipped several places, but I feel happy that your family enjoyed the Shinkansen and delicious foods. My tour is flexible to adjust what you feel comfortable. Thank you for providing me the green seat of the Shrinkansen, it was nice. Yuki
