“ A day visit to Lake Kawaguchigo ”

Mr. Yuki was very helpful and friendly during our one day tour in Lake Kawaguchigo. He's not only tour-guiding but also assisted us in sorting things out as we're travelling with 2 young children. He also provided us very good recommendations and information that had made our tour even more meaningful and memorable. Mr. Yuki was patient and kind and always putting smiles on his face. We definitely had enjoyed our family holiday to Lake Kawaguchigo with Mr Yuki as our tour guide. Thank you very much, Mr Yuki.

Yuki:

Dear Siew, Thank you for taking my tour of Lake Kawaguchi. It would rain according to a weather forecast, but you are very lucky to see Mt. Fuji. Best regards, Yuki

“ 2 SHRINES & MUSEUM WITH YUKI ”

Yuki is a good guide with very good English. He set a very fast walking pace in the heat and at times it became an effort to keep up with him getting to the Hie and Meiji shrines as we are "older" tourists; he had excellent knowledge/experience to quickly access trains. We lingered thankfully at the interesting Nezu Museum with its beautiful garden.

Yuki:

Dear Margaret, Thank you for taking my tour of Tokyo. I am very glad you have enjoyed the places. Best regards, Yuki

“ A wonderful host. ”

Yuki was wonderful at communicating in advance to gain the details of our desired destinations allowing him to plan an efficient itinerary. All with relatively short notice. He was punctual, courteous, knowledgeable, and a truly wonderful host for my daughter and I, whom only speak English, around Tokyo.

Yuki:

Dear Katai, Thank you for taking my tour of Tokyo. I am very happy that you have enjoyed my tour with your daughter. It was a wonderful weather and the Ramen was the best I have ever eaten. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Yuki

“ Very Personalized ”

Yuki was extremely efficient and knowledgeable. It was raining all the day of our tour but a Yuki made it enjoyable by changing the itinerary to suit the weather. However we still did most of the things we wanted including a shopping visit to pick out a good value kimono our daughter wanted. Very highly recommended guide. Thank you Yuki! Peter

Yuki:

Dear Peter, Thank you for taking my tour of Tokyo. We visited Meiji Shrine without entering the main shrine as it rained hard. Instead, we stayed inside its new museum just started one month ago. Although there are not enough exhibits, we had a comfortable time in the new building. Then we went to Samurai Museum instead of a garden and to my favorite souvenir shop in Omotesando where you bought a couple of Kimonos for your family. I was very glad to spend the rainy day without getting bored. Best regards, Yuki
