First, we cannot thank Kaori enough for going out of her way (literally) in making such an AMAZING customized day for us. She exceeded all of our expectations at every level – communication, prepared visual images, knowledge of Japan’s history, culture, and intense subway system. Likewise, she was an incredibly nice and humble person who made us laugh and feel right at home in an enormous city we hadn’t been to before. If she is available do not hesitate to experience Tokyo or anywhere with her!!! We now have memories that will cherish for a lifetime and a new friend because of Kaori. We can’t thank her enough for gifting us such a special and unique day. Stop your search and BOOK KAORI NOW!!! I promise you won’t regret it.
