“ Above and Beyond ”

I presented Shin with a challenge when organising my tour by wanting a more everyday cultural experience. My initial request was very vague and wishy washy. Shin was constantly patient in working with me to come up with an itinerary. In the end we settled on a mixture of high and low culture and we packed a lot of experiences into a very fun day. Shin is very generous in his nature and keen to try to fulfill the wishes of anyone booking with him. He was very helpful about other aspects of travelling in Japan both before and after our tour. Thank you so much Shin. I look forward to booking with you again next time I am in Japan.

“ Tour with SHIN in Tokyo ”

SHIN without a doubt was the very best guide we have ever had, and we have traveled all over the world. He was knowledgeable, knew the best places to see, eat and shop. He went way over what he was supposed to do. Spent many extra hours with us without charge. Went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wanted, made reservations for us and guided us with a friendly, happy attitude. Could not have enjoyed Tokyo the way we did without him. Only sorry we didn't use him for our guide in Kyoto. My husband and the two friends we traveled with all felt the same way, he was the best guide ever. Thank you, thank you, SHIN.
