“ Mayumi was the highlight of our trip to Tokyo. ”

We only had 1,5 days to discover Tokyo and Mayumi showed us around in a pleasant and welcoming way. She is very knowlegdable and accurate. In addition she was extremely flexible, attentive to our needs and adjusted to our wishes even if this conflicted with the initial itinerary. But most of all she is a very very friendly, cheerful and pleasant person to spend your time with. Next time in Tokyo we will def book again with Mayumi and we really recommend her to everyone!

MAYUMI:

Hello Josine. Hope all of you are doing well. Thank you so much for posting such a lovely review. Yes, it was only 1.5 days, but we had a happy and fulfilled tour thanks to the warmness of your family. I really appreciate it. We've had cold days since then, but the day we did the tour was the only snowy day in Tokyo. That makes the tour with you more unforgettable and beautiful memory for me. As you know, Japan has four different seasons, which give people different pleasures. You fully enjoyed our winter in Hokkaido and Tokyo this time. Please come back to me in another season so I can guide you even more exciting spots according to the season. I'm really looking forward to meeting you again. Please say hello to Alex, Emmy, Fenna, and Pip. Big hug and kisses!

“ Tokyo in a day ”

We met Mayumi at our hotel lobby in the morning and she led us to many tourist attractions that we were interested in visiting. She also helped us getting the cards for subways and taught us how to enter temples and shrines correctly. She also introduced some local street food that were very delicious. She is super friendly and great with our children. Her English is excellent, easily the best tour guide in Tokyo.

MAYUMI:

Thank you for writing the great review for me, Nian. Hope everybody is doing well. You were such a quick learner that you became like an expert of Japan after the tour with me. I well remember that. I also well remember the kids’ smile at the owl café. It was really a happy moment for me to see how they are enjoying petting owls from tiny ones to huge ones with their courage. I know that temples and shrines are a bit boring for kids, but they were patient enough to learn manners and culture perfectly. I really admire their attitude. It’s getting even colder in Japan. I imagine that you are spending hot summer at home. Happy New Year and May 2019 bring even more blessings to your family. Thank you again and say hello to Tall Tim.

“ An excellent guide! ”

Mayumi was a pleasure to be with. She planned the day out really well and was very organized. She is knowledgeable about all of Japan and even provided historical details on the places we visited. We had so many random questions and requests and she was able to answer/fulfill them all! Hanging out with her was a treat, I would definitely recommend!

MAYUMI:

Thank you so much for writing the kind and swift review in the midst of the tour. I’m really happy to know you enjoyed the tour with me. I learned a lot of interesting things from David during the tour. He has a different eye and I enjoyed talking with him. I was also happy to be able to discover the shop you bought super cute tutu thanks to your request. You enjoyed the unique atmosphere in Japanese New Year this time, but we still have various attractions. Now that I know your preference, I already have some ideas I’d like to do with you next time. One of the places is a popular ramen shop in Kawagoe. The old town Kawagoe has become more and more popular among foreign tourists. The ramen shop buys ingredients for the broth at the same shop as Tomita. He can let my guests experience rame... read more

“ One Day Trip around Tokyo ”

We booked a one day-trip (8-hours) around Tokyo with Mayumi during our honeymoon trip to Japan. Mayumi was such a great guide and we were flushed with her energetic spirit. She was punctual on the meeting day and showed up at our hotel's lobby with a bright smile. She was very helpful to show us how to do the metro cards to get around Tokyo. Additionally, Mayumi was such a great help to assist us in booking for Kimono and Rickshaw Ride experience around Asakusa in such a short notice. We were glad that we had made our choice in booking the private tour with Mayumi, as both of my husband and myself felt really comfortable with her. We highly recommend Mayumi to everyone who is deciding on a customised tour in Tokyo via Triplelights. Happy New Year to you, Mayumi and hope that you will get t... read more

MAYUMI:

Hi Betty and Khang, hope your newly-married life is filled with happy moments. Thank you for posting your great review for me. I really appreciate that you shared the beautiful memories with me. You two looked so good in the traditional kimono that I can’t forget your happy smile. I saw the rickshaw driver who treated you the other day, he also remembered you well. It seems that the beautiful couple were so impressive for all who met you. When you came back to me, I’ll show you other beautiful spots and help you experience even more interesting culture. I’ll be waiting for the next chance to be with you. Happy New Year to you too and May 2019 bring you even more blessings. PS. I have a dream of visiting Rottnest Island in the near future. If it comes true, I’d like to see you in Perth. read more
