“ Very friendly and adaptable ”

Because we were unsure of subway Tokie met us and helped us but tickets and at end of tour did the same again, even going with us because we had to change trains. She was very knowledgeable about the area and we met many local people. If we come back to Japan we would live to be guided by Tokie.

TOKIE:

Hi Gavin ! Thank you for joining my tour and I'm happy that you liked my tour ! I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the future !

“ Fantastic day in Osaka ”

Tokie was superb. She took us around her own neighborhood showing us a shrine and some local shops, including a stamp workshop were we made our own stamps. In the evening she took us barhopping and we tried out local drinks and foods. We definitely got to experience some of the local flavor that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Tokie is easy to talk to, knowledgeable and an experienced guide. I highly recommend her.
