“ 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 !!!

Spent a day exploring the West Side of Tokyo with Dai, he was super communicative during the booking process, helpful with tips before I even landed, on-time on the day was more than willing to be flexible. His English was excellent, and I really enjoyed learning about Tokyo with him.
