“ So Informative ”

My partner and I really enjoyed our tour with Dai. In addition to showing us all around Tokyo, I loved that he took the time to provide us the history and fun facts for each of the places we went to. I feel like my understanding of the history and culture of Japan grew so much as did my appreciation for it. Dai was super open to my many questions and didn't hesitate to answer them. We ended up having to cut back some of the places we went to at the end as we took too much time at each place but I didn't feel like I missed out. I also appreciated that Dai took a few extra minutes to make sure we reached our final destination and made sure we knew how to get back to our hotel from there.

Dai:

Thank you Lena for giving me such a thoughtful review. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I also had a super wonderful day with you guys. And it was so much fun to talk with you and your partner about many things. I believe you could enjoy staying in Japan after my tour as well. Next time if you come back to Japan, I would love to show you guys around other places and cities. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your partner Rowdy. Thanks a million !!!
