“ Tokyo Visit Was Amazing ”

Dai was an awesome tour guide. He took us around the city, was extremely knowledgeable of what routes to take, restaurants to visit, and even has a pretty good mastery of Spanish. He’s visited over 150 countries as well, so it was also extremely fun to talk with him about his experiences. We had a great day in Tokyo thanks to Dai. He’s the best!

“ Great tours in Tokyo! ”

This was our first time in Japan and we only had two days to see Tokyo area. We could have not picked a better guide than Dai. Both mornings he met us at our hotel lobby and took us to the tours. We saw temples, shines, busy shopping streets and Tokyo Electric town. We took train to Hakone area and enjoyed the lake, hot springs, views and open area musium. Dai introduced us to local food and expanded many things about local traditions and life. Dai is very organized, knowledge and professional. He even had towels so we could dry our feet after enjoying hot spring in Hakone. Every day after the tour he brought us back to our hotel to make sure we didn’t get lost in supper busy Tokyo metro system. Many thanks Dai for our wonderful two days in Tokyo! Dmitriy and family.

“ Day Tour of Tokyo ”

We spent a FULL day with Dai exploring eastern Tokyo - Tsujikii, Asakusa, Ueno, Akihabara and Imperial Palace. Dai met us at our hotel and dropped us back 8 hours later - exhausted but somewhat enlightened after our first day in Japan. Dai was kind enough to introduce some newbies to Japan to the Tokyo Metro, ATMs, and enough basic language and etiquette to get us of to a great start for the rest of our journey. Dai is a calm, interesting and attentive host with a dry sense of humor - I can definely recommend a day tour in Tokyo with Dai.

“ Tour of Hakone ”

Dai is very personable with excellent English skills. His organization of our trip fromTokyo to Hakone was perfect. We were there during Golden Week but the way he organized our itinerary we avoided the bad crowds. Our tour was fro 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM (including all the transportation) so Dai was very generous with his time and kept us on schedule. Also the lunch spot he picked was wonderful. Dai's only limitation is that he could provide a little more narrative--a little more history. But he did give us good details about every place we visited. Overall we would recommend Dai enthusiastically.

“ Rained But Still A Great Day in Tokyo ”

The day started with rain but Dai rearranged the schedule so that we saw everything we wanted. Dai has a wonderful quiet but efficient manner in guiding and took good care of us. Gave us lots of good information. I highly recommend Dai as a guide.
