“ Great Nobu Travel Service ”

I found Nobu, our friendly tour guide, through google since I did not have time to prepare for my trip to Tokyo. I'm glad I did since he was very accommodating even before my trip. Pressed with time, I relied on Nobu for suggested places to visit in Tokyo since it was our first time to visit Japan. He patiently answered all my questions promptly which gave me an inkling of the kind of service he provides. He was prompt, knowledgeable of the places we visited and his English is very good. With regret we did not visit all the places we planned because we decided to have side visits which were not in our itinerary. I should have followed Nobu's suggestions all the way but then again it all was still a great experience. Thank you for the great experience, Nobu!

“ Family Friendly ”

Nobu was knowledgeable and helped us navigate the public transport system. We would never have been able to do so on our own. He took us to the major spots and was very flexible.

“ Excellent tour, Nobu was knowledgeable, and created a good itinerary. ”

I enjoyed my tour with Nobu. He spoke English fairly well. He was punctual. His itinerary included a trip to the temple and shrine at Asakusa, a river trip, walking through Hamma Rikyu Gardens, and a trip to the top of the Tokyo Metropolitan Building with a tremendous 360 degree view. I would highly recommend Nobu.
