“ A warm bath ”

Visiting Japan, and Tokyo specifically, for the first time, we were looking for a private guide. Via Triple Lights we booked Yuko Ohmori, and she appeared the best guide we could wish for. The preparation, the motivation, the pleasure and the professionality she took care of us was impressive and very warm! She guided us for 21/2 days and from begin to end was magnificent. Breaking up when we had to leave felt like loosing a friend; although it at the same time felt as we gained a friend for life! Warm regards, Flip van Ellinkhuizen

“ Yuko is Highly Recommended ”

Yuko was prompt in meeting us at our hotel. She is friendly, caring and very organized. It was obvious that she had spent a lot of time planning our tour according to our wishes. We saw all of the sights that I had requested for our group of 4 adults. When I return to Yokohama or Tokyo, I will certainly contact Yuko again to arrange another tour for me!

“ Tokyo highlights ”

Yuku was such an amazing guide! We traveled with our 1yr old daughter, and Yuko was so nice and thoughtful of her. She has a bright personality and lots of energy. We ended up seeing a few places that were scheduled on our tour before our tour date, so the itinerary she had planned was adapted on the spot. She was flexible and so well prepared as she adapted the schedule to our needs and interest. She knew the best places for diaper changes and even child friendly restaurant. She was one of the most well prepared guides we used, and responded and confirmed everything promptly. You can tell she is a hard worker and will do her best to make your tour enjoyable. We really enjoyed our time with her!
