“ Most comprehensive Tokyo tour ”

We would not have been able to see as many sights in Tokyo on our own. Tokyo is very crowded especially in tourist sites and subways. Dai navigated us through the crowds and the subway maze with ease. Dai organized day so that one day we used all day subway ticket on first day and another day with our JR pass. He even knew which subway car was more efficient to get out to where the exit or transfer was. He brought us to authentic nontouristy tonkatsu and sushi restaurants. To round out our experience, he also brought us to monster cafe and robot restaurants and hedgehog pet cafe and even saved us money with coupons for these restaurants. He also brought my son to arcade with virtual reality experience and the samurai museum.

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking a moment of your precious time for me, Ann. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo both days together. I really enjoyed sharing a FUN time with you and your amazing son. I believe you could enjoy your stay in Hakone, Kyoto as well after my tour. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family. Thanks a million !!!

“ A superb guide ”

We presented Dai with a unique problem: a tour planned months ago that would now take place with a typhoon bearing down on Tokyo. Dai was creative. Together, we kept one eye on the weather and the other on the sights...and made it all work. He's a charming, knowledgeable, flexible professional. We had a great day with a terrific guide.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful comment, Richard-san. Yes, that's right. Because of a typhoon, today's tour was very hard for me. But fortunately or whatever, we made it. Thank you very much for your kind cooperation ! I do hope you will have super wonderful days in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima and Hakone. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your super cool son. Thanks a million !!!

“ Personalized Tour Guide ”

Dai did an amazing job introducing us to Tokyo and planning the day based on a mix of Tokyo highlights and what our kids wanted to do. We have two boys age 21 & 19 and wanted to see anime so Dai weaved in a stop at Akihabara. Dai is extremely knowledgeable of what subway line to take, restaurants to visit and attractions to see in Tokyo. With his pre-planning of the days sights, the day went smoothly and stress free. It was very enjoyable to spend the day in Tokyo with Dai as our guide. We highly recommend Dai as your guide while in Tokyo.

Dai:

Thank you so much for a considerate review, Scott. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I was super happy I could share the time with you and your amazing family. I'm so glad to hear that your awesome two sons enjoyed spending the time in Akihabara and Ikebukuro. I hope to see you again sometime in the future. Please take good care of yourself and send my best regards to your family. Thanks a million !!!

“ Great way to orientate to Tokyo and cover a lot of ground ”

We had a wonderful day and half wih Dai, who suggested a great itinerary for us but was also flexible to accomodate our interests along the way. We didn’t want to do a group tour and wanted to discover Tokyo ourselves and Dai helped us do that and was terrific in explaining customs, differences and “how to navigate” our way around Japan. Thanks Dai for a professional and fun couple of days.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a thoughtful review, Paula. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo on both days. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. It was so much fun to talk and share the time with you and your amazing family. Enjoy the rest of your vacation in Tokyo and Kyoto and have much fun in Naeba, Fuji Rock Festival !!! And please take good care of youeself and give my best regards to your family, Robb, Harriet and Charlotte. Thanks a million !!! Cheers mate !!!

“ 1 day in Tokyo ”

We were referred Dai through a coworker of mine in Chicago. He was very nice, talkative, and made it so we were able to do many things in one day! He gave a lot of great suggestions, and because it was so personalized, we really enjoyed it. Dai is an excellent tour guide! We are used to using big travel companies such as Gate One travel and Trafalgar, but this was an excellent way to start the vacation!!! Definitely recommend Dai!!!

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Reesha. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I’m so glad to hear that you could enjoy my tour. It was so much fun to share the time with you and your awesome family. Enjoy the rest of your vacation in Japan ! And please give my best regards to your family. Thanks a million !!!
