“ One day Tokyo trip ”

Our journey to Tokyo was a great one. We had 13 people in our troop with kids, seniors, adults etc. He managed the group very well, helped all of us stay on time and made sure that we covered all things that were discussed when the booking was made. He also helped us do more things than planned, like owl cafe etc. I will totally recommend anyone to appoint Steve as their guide. Thanks again Steve for keeping us on time and pace.


Deepa-san I hope you have returned with good memory. What I did for you was a just normal hospitality. Any guide should provide to customers. Anyway, I wish you have experienced various things sometimes different from your own culture. Keep good memory !

“ Great Use of Short Time! ”

Steve is a very kind and knowledgable guide. He speaks English very well which made it easy for us. We needed to rush a little because the train/subway system confused even him at times but we made all of the connections we needed to. He always chose the most economical mode of transport first and we upgraded when we felt like it made sense for us. We were both happy we chose a guided tour over doing it ourselves for the time we had


Thanks for your comments, however I had many points I had to refrect myself especially at ShinJuku Station. I will restudy it and pay more attention in advance. Wishing you will return to your contry with good memory. Bests, Steve
