“ Yokohama at the height of Golden Week ”

Saw the best of Kamakura and Yokohama thanks to good planning by Reiko. Invaluable as a transportation escort and most informative about the history of the sights we visited. Quite personable and energetic; you may have to declare "uncle" when you are ready to slow down or stop. Most delightful!

RIEKO:

Dear Connie san, Thank you for your great review! I am so grateful for such sweet words. During the tours I had a very good time with you and enjoyed talking with you a lot. I hope you are enjoying a good cruise on a gorgeous boat. Have a good trip and come back to Japan one day. Please send warm regards to Paul san. Rieko

Great tour! Rieko is very knowledgeable and helpful. She shows us how to use the train and subway system in Japan. She revises the tour schedule to include all places that we'd like to see.
