“ Tokyo Tour Review ”

Dai is an incrediblt knowledgable and through tour guide. Not only does he know the history of Tokyo and anything you can think of asking him about the city, but he also so well-traveled that he can answer a multitude of questions about other cultures and places as well. He will customize your day in Tokyo and take you exactly where you want to go in the most efficient order and also make suggestions on how to improve your list of destinations. I would highly recommend learning about the city of Tokyo with Dai!

“ An amazing day in Tokyo ”

Dai was a very helpful, friendly and professional guide. He happily accommodated some adjustments to the planned itinerary and gave a great deal of useful background info on the places we visited. His English is superb. He has visited over 150 countries. We will be recommending him to any friends who plan to visit Tokyo.

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a wonderful review, Terry. It was absolutely my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I had an amazing time with both of you. And it was super fun to talk and share the time with you. I learned so much from you. Also I was so happy to be able to see your wife’s smile when she had Tuna Sushi and Eel skewers at Tsukiji Outer Market and got a Japanese knife at Kappabashi Street. I hope you will have wonderful days in Kawaguchiko, Hiroshima, Kyoto and Nara as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your lovely, funny and yes! super energetic wife. Thanks a million !!!

We had a great time with Dai! He took us to some amazing spots and we tried a lot of great food! You can tell he is very passionate about it! He understands what it means to travel since he has been to over 140+ countries! We had so much fun talking about our respective adventures throughout the day that it went way too quickly! We highly recommend him! He is a fantastic guide!

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Ujjval. I also had amazing two days with both of you. And I am glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour.

“ Great tour guide! ”

Dai was a wonderful guide. We only had a short time and he allowed us to see as much as we could. He also planned our trip in advance and always responded very quickly! He has been to over 150 countries and is very experienced! I would highly recommend Dai.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me a considerate comment, Julia. We actually had three and a half hours in Tokyo, so it was a bit rush tour, but we could visit Asakusa, Tsukiji Outer Market and Akihabara. And you guys enjoyed Sushi, of course, TUNA !!! I was so happy to be able to see you guys' Big Smile at the market. If you come back to Japan again, I would love to show you around Tokyo MORE. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your friends. Thanks a million !!!
