“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Yes I was lucky... nice weather, not so many people and the antique market just opened today, but I would never had such beautiful experience without the help of Makiko. In a few hours I have visited so many interesting places and had so many new experiences.. the fish market (the big tuna cut was amazing..), the antique market, the temples, the local food... everything perfect. I left Tokyo knowing that I still have a lot to discover and sure I’ll be back. Thank you Makiko!

Makiko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review! I am happy to hear you enjoyed my tour. I had a lovely time with you. We went to quite many places and experienced a lot. It was such a fun to talk about lots of things. One day is not enough to explore Tokyo. Please come back sometime with your family and hope to meet you again. Have a great day tomorrow.

“ Tokyo Highlights ”

We had an amazing time with Makiko. She was very knowledgeable, professional, and fun. She communicated with us several times in the weeks leading up to our tour. I had a few ideas of what we wanted to see and she incorporated those into other popular and traditional places to visit. She made sure we ate at a place that accommodated everyone’s tastes. Makiko is fluent in English and very easy to understand. We were with her for a full day and she providesd us with ideas for our remaining days in Tokyo. Tour was very fairly priced. Great experience!!

Makiko:

Thank you very much for a great review! Glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. I had a wonderful time to spend with all of you and talked about many things! It was pleasure to be your guide in Tokyo. Hope you can come back sometime and meet again, maybe in spring? My best regards to Joe, David and Debra.
