“ Wonderful walking tour! ”

We booked a 1 day walking tour with Dai with very limited time due to a change in our schedule. Dai accommodated this and we ended up seeing so much of the best sights of Tokyo in about 6 hours. He was very knowlegable about the areas we went and sights we saw. It was so good to have someone take us around the city and not have to worry about the best way to get there, language barriers and the extra knowlege about areas was great! Our kids loved it, we would definitely recommend Dai to everyone. Thanks again Dai

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a thoughtful review, Rebbeca. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. It was a little rush tour though, eventually we made it ! It was super fun to talk and share the time with you and your family. I hope you will have a wonderful time in Nozawa Onsen Snow Resort. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your cool husband and lovely, talented children. Thanks a million !!! Cheers !!!

“ Perfect Day with Dai ”

We recently spent a day touring Tokyo with Dai. I was traveling with my 17 year old daughter. From the time I booked our tour with Dai he was very fast to respond back and set up the perfect itinerary. Learning about the Japanese culture and history from Dai really made our first trip to Tokyo very memorable. Thank you Dai for letting my daughter shop too. She had the best time. We look forward to coming back and would absolutely book more tours with you. Dai is extremely professional, speaks great English and is very knowledgeable. Our first day in Tokyo was perfect. We highly recommend Dai as a Tour guide.

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a wonderful review, Kim. It was absolutely my great pleasure to have showed you around Tokyo. I also had an amazing time with both of you and actually enjoyed shopping with your daughter. I believe you could have a great time in Kyoto as well. Next time you come back to Japan, I would love to show you around other places in Tokyo and cities in Japan. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your beautiful daughter, Chloe. And one more thing, thank you very much for giving me a lovely gift from your hometown, Arkansas. I hardly cook but I will !!! Thanks a million !!!
