“ Red leafs in Nikko ”

Our tour with Mari was very enjoyable! Mari had put together a personalized tour for us in Nikko. Her preparation and timing was excellent, as she put a lot of thought into details. We learned a lot about Nikko as well as history and art of Japan. Mari is very kind, knowledgeable and fun - and also patient with the photographers among us. We very much enjoyed spending our day in Nikko with her!

Mari:

Thank you very much for your excellent review. It was a great pleasure for me to have the chance to accompany you! It was a perfectly beautiful day for leaf coloring in Nikko. I still remember that red Japanese maple leaves (Momiji) were beyond description at Tamozawa Imperial Villa. I enjoyed talking with you about art, nature and world situations sophisticatedly. As you are a great travel planner, I am sure the rest of your journey will be excellent and fruitful. If you need any help, please let me know. Best wishes to two of you. Mari

“ Mari was wonderful!!! ”

We had a wonderful experience with Mari as our tour guide in Tokyo and Hakone! She was very good with communicating before hand to make sure our tour itinerary fit our interests and our needs. We got to see everything we wanted to see within a good time frame because she had planned our tours so throughly and well. She was also very prepared with presentations and even pamphlets to make sure we got the most out of our tours. We particularly found her knowledge of both past and present Japanese culture, politics, religions, society, and general Japanese history to be vast and it made our tour that much better. She also has a great education on art so if you want an informative tour on art throughout Tokyo, this is the guide for you. It was easy to see that Mari cared about making our tour e... read more

Mari:

Thank you very much for your excellent review which encouraged me as a guide. It was a wonderful memory; beautiful chrysanthemum displays in Yasukuni Shrine and a fantastic autumn scenery in Hakone. I also enjoyed talking about Japanese art history in depth with you and your mother. It was my great pleasure to guide your family who are sweet and thoughtful. I was impressed you took care of your parents very well. Please send my best wishes to your parents. Many thanks. Mari

“ Cheerful anf patient MARI ”

Mari is a very caring and patient guide who makes sure everyone is enjoying. On the night we arrived in Tokyo, she was sweet enough to leave a hand written note at our hotel welcoming us. On the day of our trip, she was on time and made the tour very interesting for my children. It is quite hard to capture the attention of 4 kids 10 to 15 years old! I was surprised the kids opened up to her and listened to history. Also , she patiently provided for our needs, even looking for grilled chicken for my son in Tsukiji! Best thing was her guidance through the Tokyo subway. She made it less scary! We are not used to walking fast, so I was ashamed to have to extend one hour from the set number of hours. She never lost patience and even declined a tip. We thank you again Mari for being an ang... read more

Mari:

Thank you very much for an excellent review. It's my great pleasure to guide your family, visiting Imperial Palace, tasting Sushi, grilled steak and egg omelet at Tsukiji, taking PURIKURA photos in Harajuku and enjoying Halloween in Shibuya. We had a fantastic time in a day. All your family are sweet. Especially all your children have good manners which I was impressed. Please send my best wishes to your husband and children. I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday in Japan. With love.

“ Very Sweet & Well Organised ”

My Parents were visiting Japan for the first time and Mari took very good care of them. She was highly accommodating to the requests and very polite. From the first message I sent for enquiry; till my parents had their tour she was very helpful and gave all the required information in time. My mother specially had a great time talking with Mari and knowing about the cultures.

Mari:

Dear Vivek, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. First of all, I was very impressed you took care of your parents very well with love. Thank you for your coordination. It was my great pleasure to guide your parents. They are wonderful people. I was glad your mother enjoyed wearing and taking pictures with Kimono in Narita. In Tokyo, we had a nice lunch at an authentic Indian restaurant, which I appreciated. Please send warmest regards to your parents. Many thanks. Mari
