“ Tokyo & Hakone visit ”

Nobu is mature, seasoned, conscientious, very knowledgeable guide.He helped us with airport transfers, visit to Hakone and with bullet train tickets. Without his help, we would have been lost in maze of logistics. We were a group of 9 boisterous, excited( by Tokyo standards) Indians wanting to experience Tokyo. Nobu handled all our requests, painstakingly answered all our questions, patiently listened to us. We had a great time👍👍

“ Great and helpful guide. ”

My family and I had a great time with Nobu. He managed our trip to the Mt.Fuji area well and everything went smoothly. He also tried his best to help us book a taxi to the train station a few days after our trip with him was over which was very nice of him to do.

“ Did exactly what we requested ”

Sorry for delay...we have been on a cruise ship from Yokohama and have had terrible internet connection. Close to USA now and internet better. Nobu was the best. He listened to us and arranged to take us exactly where we wanted to go and to the places we really wanted to see. It appears many guides will take you only to the "hot spots", but we had several requests that weren't necessarily the most requested. Nobu listened and provided exactly what we wanted in a day of touring Tokyo, which by the way, is an incredible city....well worth a full day or more of exploring. If ever back in Tokyo, I would pick Nobu again over anyone else. Thank you for a day we will never forget....really liked and enjoyed where he took us for lunch...fantastic food.
