“ Excellent guide at Tokyo Imperial Palace ”

If you need a private guide tour, then Yuki is the best choice for it. He knows lots of from Japan's history and he gave a perfect Imperial Palace for us and he escorted us to the Tokyo Station at the end of the tour. I can 100% recommend his guide for everybody.

Yuki:

Dear Daniel, Thank you for taking my tour and writing the review with the highest rating. I hope my tour is useful for your travel in Japan. Best regards, Yuki

“ Yuki was the best! ”

We went to Mount Fuji with Yuki last week, and we are so glad we chose him as our guide! Before the trip, we messaged back and forth about the cost of bus vs. train, and Yuki did all of the research to let us know which would be more cost effective. Our hotel was in the Okubo area (not where most easy-to-get-to Shinjuku hotels are), and he willingly met us in the hotel lobby on the morning of the tour. Yuki led the way as soon as we met him. Japan's train/bus stations could get confusing at times, so it was nice to have someone who confidently got us to where we needed to be. Once we got to the Mount Fuji area, Yuki noticed that the clouds were blocking the view of the mountain, and suggested an alternative to what we had planned that day so that we would be able to see it. We drov... read more

Yuki:

Dear Michele, Thank you for taking my tour to Lake Kawaguchi and write such an intensive review. The weather was unpredictable on the day so I did my best to provide you the best tour of mine. It was fortunate for us to see Mt. Fuji on a cloudy day. We planed to visit the Koreito Pagoda to see Mt. Fuji but the clouds blocked Mt. Fuji in the direction so I asked the taxi driver to take us to the west where we found the great view of Mt. Fuji. The DVD we watched at the Kimono Museum was very educational. By all means, it was a good experience for me too. Best regards, Yuki

“ Wonderful guide! ”

My father and I were in Yokohama for a cruise. Since neither of us had been to Japan and neither speak or read Japanese, we decided to hire a guide in order to maximize our time. Yuki turned out to be the perfect choice. My father cannot walk long distances or climb stairs so Yuki took that into consideration when planning our day. He is pleasant to be with and was a pleasure to talk to. His knowledge of Yokohama is extensive and he went out of his way to make our day enjoyable. You will not regret booking a tour with him!

Yuki:

Dear Carol, Thank you for taking my tour and write the review with the highest rating. Your father has a marvelous personality. It was my privilege to spend a day with such a person. Sankei-En was the perfect place for us. Please give my best regards to Mr. Happy. Yuki

“ ok guide for tokyo ”

we did a day tour of tokyo with him from our cruise port yokohama, he was ok as he showed us many places on subway, but he never explained much to us about japan or places we saw, moreover he asked us to pay 1 hour extra fees which paid despite of finishing our tour 2 hours early as our free shuttle bus from yokohama railway station to cruise port was at 21:30 (not his fault). in short he was ok.

Yuki:

Dear Puneet, I guided you from 13:30 to 21:30 for 8 hours, which is one hour longer than my regular time duration of 7 hours. So, you didn't lose anything on the day. Instead, you should pay me the extra charge for the 6th person which you didn't mention when you booked me. I asked you the extra charge during the tour. At the moment, I trusted your word and charged you online which you have not paid yet. It was a busy tour so I limited explanation to important ones such as Sakurada-Mon Gate, Main Gate of the Palace, and the origin of Senso-Ji Temple all of which you seems to forget. You spent more time for shopping and eating at Ginza and Takeshita street. You should have asked me if you want to know anything more. Best regards, Yuki
