“ Very good guide ”

Yuki did a very good job of guiding us around Tokyo. He lent us some Metro cards so we could just recharge them rather than buying new ones which was nice.

“ Day tour and intro to Tokyo ”

Yuki-san gave us a great introduction to Tokyo on day 1 of our trip. He not only helped us see several Tokyo highlights in a day, but also gave us enough of an orientation to the city so that we are were able to comfortably navigate Tokyo by ourselves after that. His suggestions on getting a Pasmo card to navigate the subway system, and the extra photographs and info he had handy on his tablet were also greatly appreciated. We particularly enjoyed all the historical and cultural insights he was able to provide. Thanks, Yuki-san!

“ Two Days in Tokyo ”

We had two tours with Yuki, one in Tokyo centre and one in Yokohama. On both occasions Yuki met us on time and with a big smile. We had exchanged e-mails prior to the tour so Yuki knew the sights we wanted to see. He then arranged the days so we saw everything we wanted. We went on the underground and the bus system and had two excellent lunches in traditional restaurants. Yuki was very knowledgeable and explained about the history associated with the sights. I would have no hesitation in recommending Yuki as a guide when you visit Japan.

“ Excellent tour ”

Mr. Yuki met us very punctually. He was very informative and kept a brisk pace, allowing us to a number of sites during the day. He handled purchasing the tickets we needed to navigate about Tokyo. The restaurant he suggested for lunch was elegant, quite and out of the way (a nice break from the heat and crowds outside). I was able to have some interesting chats related to his profession, as he was a nuclear physicist. We were fortunate to have Mr. Yuki as our guide!

“ Great service from Yuki ”

Yuki is a very kind and patient tour guide. He did his job very well in explaining the history, details and the story of the tourist spots. Besides, he was very patient to take care of my trip that consists of 5 young kids. Highly recommended!

“ Insightful Context ”

“ Tokyo City tour and Tour to Mount Fuji ”

We had an excellent trip of Tokyo City tour and Mount Fuji with Mr.Yuki. Mr.Yuki took us to a lot of viewing spots near Lake Kawaguchi. He also took us to a good restaurant for lunch in Lake Kawaguchi to taste Japanese delicacy. He planned the trip very nicely so that we did not have to rush during our site seeing.

“ One amazing Tokyo day with Yuki ”

We spend one day with Yuki visiting Tokyo station, entrance Imperial palace, Imperial East Garden, Senso-Ji tempel and Skytree. We had an amazing time including an amazing lunch. Yuki has a great knowledge of history and events that formed Tokyo. He explained us the JR train system so we could smoothly travel later to Takayama and also the metro system. He uses his ipad to support his explanation. He is very helpful, very friendly and speaks very good English. Our two daugters expected Yuki again the next day, they missed him already. We will visite Tokyo again and hopefully Yuki has time to join us then!

“ Varied Tokyo ”

We spent 5 days with Yuki and from the beginning, he was fantastic. He helped us to navigate the underground system, quickly and efficiently. We went to a variety of places, where he gave detailed explainations, sometimes using his iPad to show us different facts about where we were. We have seen some very modern parts of Tokyo whilst also enjoying more historical aspects too. Yuki has a great knowledge of history and events that shaped modern day Tokyo. He was flexible, helpful and very friendly, whilst helping us to follow Japanese protocol in different situations. We ate in some fabulous restaurants including having the most amazing sushi. We cannot recommend him highly enough for the time and effort he put in to making our stay so wonderful. Nothing was too much effort. We were sad to say goodbye.

“ Yuki was amazing ”

This was our first trip to Japan and we hired Yuki for three full days of touring us around Tokyo. He came to our apartment on time each morning to pick us up and took us to our planned events for the day. He even helped pick restaurants that suited our dietary needs. He also made sure we returned to our apartment without getting lost. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend Yuki for anything you plan to do in Tokyo.

“ Day trip in Tokyo ”

I like the free and easy option, and Yuki-san brought us to some nice place for lunch. Although I believe, there is lack of information in general.

“ Great Tour of Tokyo's Highlights ”

Mr. Yuki did a great job customizing a tour for us. A week prior to our trip, we decided on three spots together based on our interests. Mr. Yuki replied to his emails almost immediately, which made this process so much easier. At the last minute, we had to change our meeting location but Mr. Yuki was very understanding. He lent us subway cards for the day which made traveling between sites so much easier. We weren't familiar with Japanese traditions at all. He did a great job explaining Japan's history, customs and traditions. He was very knowledgeable. He patiently answered all of the questions we had about Japan. This was an all day tour and we had a lot of questions! Also, we wanted to have lunch specifically at the Palace Hotel and he was very accommodating about that too. At the end of the tour, I felt that we learned more about Tokyo than we could have ever figured out ourselves by going to the sites with just a travel book. We definitely recommend Mr. Yuki. We only had one day to spend in Tokyo, but he made sure that day was spent productively.

“ First Day in Tokyo ”

We hired Yuki to meet us at Haneda Airport and help us navigate the public transit system to our AirBnB. He helped us get settled, purchase public transit cards, and reviewed our itinerary so that we would know how to get around for the remainder of our trip. He also helped us make reservations and picked up tickets for us for later in our trip. He also took us to a few tourist locations. Meeting with Yuki on our first day made us feel comfortable and settled in for the rest of the trip.

“ Great first day in Japan ”

Yuki's tour was a perfect way to start off my first trip to Japan. Becoming familiar with the train system with Yuki saved a ton of time and made the rest of my travels easier. We saw some great sights in Tokyo and had the best sashimi I've tried at Tsukiji market. Yuki's english is excellent and he was very flexible+helpful with deciding on destinations.

“ Excellent Guide - Highly Recommended ”

My family hired Yuki for 3.5 days to see Tokyo and Hakone. We are very sophisticated world travelers and have used many guides over the years. Yuki was perhaps the most warm, flexible, and accomadating guide we have had. He is very knowledgable about Japanese history and the sights. He was superb with my two children, both who became very fond of him. It was a great help having him help us quickly navigate the subways and trains. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Yuki!

“ Tokyo first timers ”

It was fun having Yuki around, his tour basically covered most of the spots in Tokyo and we learned a lot from history, culture and Japan's everyday life. I will definitely recommend Yuki's tour to anyone. Thanks for the wonderful time Yuki! Hope to see you again! Soon!

“ Tokyo Day Tour ”

Yuki was a great tour guide! We are grateful to have him on the day we arrive Tokyo, and it's our first time here. He took us to places where we wanted to see and made extra effort to accommodate our needs. I highly recommend him. Thanks Yuki for making our first trip to Japan a memorable one. I will for sure recommend you to my friends in US who are planning to visit Tokyo! Good luck and more power to you.

Yuki san was an excellent tour guide. We had to move the time from 10am to 10.30am as we had just arrived from Kyoto. He offered to help get us an ICOCA card for subways(We declined as it was our last day in Japan). He not only explained the history of the places we visited but the customs that are followed and showed us more pictures and videos on his Ipad. His explanations were very informative. He showed my parents to an Indian restaurant and accompanied me and my brother to an excellent ramen restaurant. All in all very accommodating. He also went the extra mile when we wanted to buy a bag for cheap for all our souvenirs, he talked to people and found us a discount shop. And in the end he came along with us till our hotel. It was an excellent tour. Thank you Yuki san for a wonderful day.

Nice man but his knowledge of Tokyo was the best. I have have had many guides in counties over the years that were much more engaging. But I have traveled all over the world.

We had an excellent time with our guide Yuki and he is very good and patience with little children too. He met us at our hotel and tog we took the train to Meiji shrine, Tsukiji fish market and imperial Palace. Would recommend Yuki to friends to use his service . He also recommended a very good sushi restaurant to us too which is family friend and great value . Yuki thanks a million for look after us and wishing you all the best. Regards Jane & family

We had excellent Tokyo tour with Mr Yuki was really good. He had a good knowledge of Tokyo city. I am very thankful to Mr Yuki took all the trouble to find our apartment end of our tour. I recommend Mr Yuki's tour for anyone wish to visit Tokyo.

1 year ago |   by Dean

My colleague and I had just about 24 hours to see as much of Tokyo as we could. Having never been to Asia before, we were a bit unsure of the best way to navigate the city and to see the many sites. Yuki was terrific! He guided us quickly through the subway system and through the crowds. His knowledge of the city, history, and Tokyo "must sees" was tremendous. Yuki tailored his tour to our "wishlist" and made additional recommendations. I would most definitely use Yuki again the next time I visit Tokyo to see the places we missed due to our time constraints. He was the best!
