“ Wonderful day in Tokyo with Yumi! ”

Yumi is absolutely lovely and I would highly recommend her! She took us on the city tram tour and it was an amazing experience. Away from the touristy parts of Tokyo, we got to see places where the locals live. We saw the local market, tried some local food. We were even lucky to see a local ceremony at a shrine. Yumi is very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the history of these places. She was also great with the kids. She catered the tour in a way that my 1 and 4 year old would be comfortable. She even thought my 4 year some Japanese customs. Over all it was a great start to our trip. Thank you again Yumi!

Yumi:

Hi Tejal san, I am glad that you enjoyed my tour. I had a really good time with you, too. You are such a nice family I already miss you! Enjoy Harajuku, Odaiba and Kyoto. Hope to see you again in Tokyo! Yumi

“ Excellent Tokyo highlights tour ”

Yumi is a wonderful and knowledgeable guide! It was my family’s first time to Tokyo. Without Yumi’s help , navigating Tokyo with children would have been difficult . She catered the tour to the varying ages in our group (from 7-81 yrs) with ease and was still able to cover quite a lot of sites ! Thank you Yumi and hope to meet with you again soon! P.S Thanks for making me try the horse sashimi!! Loved it!

Yumi:

Stacy, thank you so much for your wonderful comment and rating! You were such a sweet family I had a really good time with you. Having the horse sashimi was quite an experience, wasn’t it? Please say hello to everybody, and see you again in the near future! Yumi

“ What a wonderful day with Yumi! ”

I so appreciated her always responding promptly to all my emails finalizing our itinerary. It was wonderful being able to choose what sites we wanted to see on our free day. Having Yumi expertly maneuvering all the trains was so amazing. We would have never been able to accomplish what we did without her help. She was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. She was always concerned about our comfort. We felt so comfortable with her. Thank you so very much Yumi. We will always cherish our day with you.?

Yumi:

Thank you so much for your warm-hearted comment. I too had a very good time with you. You were such wonderful guests I am missing you two. Hope to see you again some day!
