“ Love Tokyo ”

We had a great day in Tokyo with Kyoko as our guide. It was amazing how the time went by, but we were able to do things we would not have done on our own. Thank you, Kyoko, for a wonderful experience.

Kyoko:

Thank you Christopher for writing me an excellent review! It must made you tired to travel by cruse ship for a long period, but I am very happy you remember my trip as one of the wonderful experiences you spent. Kimono suited two of you so much and your smiles seemed shining. I hope you will come back again someday in the near future!

“ Tokyo Tour ”

I spent a lovely day with Kyoko and saw more of Tokyo than I would have on my own. Her English is excellent and she’s easy to understand. Kyoko used to be a teacher and that was evident when she easily explained what we were seeing. She was quick to communicate and answer my many questions before my tour. She also followed up after my tour to make sure I arrived back at my hotel. Kyoko is a gem and I highly recommend her. I wish I had booked her for more than one day!

Kyoko:

Thank you very much Jill for writing me a great review! I also enjoyed a girls' trip with you a lot. Thanks to your taste, we could walk not only main streets but also back streets to find a nice restaurant for you while chatting. It was a very nice memory and good experience. Thank you for walking a lot . Thank you for treating me to a gluten free food which was totally new to me and developed my new sphere! I hope you will come back to me next time again maybe with your husband!

“ Worth every bit! ”

Kyoko took my family of 8 for a day in hakone and it was worth every yen/penny. She took the stress of public transportation away from us for the day and accommodated my family of 2 sets of elderly parents with one using cane/wheelchair and 2 toddlers. Personable and just lovely of a person. Would love to have Kyoko take us out on more adventures the next time we come back. Thank you so much Kyoko!!!

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for writing such a quick and wonderful review, Khoalinh. I hope this didn't make you tired so much. It was also great pleasure for me to be with your family who warmly welcomed me just like your family member. I was also very impressed you and your husband's kindness and guts. Both of you greatly worked so hard for pushing 2 baby cars and 1 wheelchair. Of course, I know there were a lot of help from your parents but you sitll had your future child. You and your husband are so affectionate parents that your children will be adults just like you. I hope I can meet bigger version of such wonderful children in the near future. I wish all of you your safe and joyful journey ! Please have fun!!

“ Tokyo With Kyoko ”

Kyoko was an absolute delight. She was knowledgeable and very kind. We appreciated her patience as we had an infant with us. It was a very hot day in Tokyo when we visited and Kyoko showed us all the sites we requested using the most convient and efficient modes of transportation available. I especially appreciated her limiting the amount of walking we would have otherwise had to do. When we visit Japan again, I will ask for Kyoko again as a tour guide.

Kyoko:

Thank you very much for writing me a wonderful review despite your very busy days, Sondra! I was very happy to have been able to meet you at Tokyo Station because it is the Tokyo's biggest station and to find you seemed miracle for me in such crowded people of Bon vacation! But you and your son is very kind and his wife is also very smart. Your granddaughter is the youngest in my record of three months! Despite the hot weather of sweltering Japan's August , she traveled very smoothly. How strong she is! I hope you will come back to Japan with your husband again in the near future.
