Hi, Maria! Thank you for taking your time to write a wonderful review! Hope you are enjoying cruise with your lovely family;) Bon voyage! Haruko
Haruko-san was such a wonderful guide. She knew interesting historical information off the top of her head, she was glad to answer any questions we had, happy to make unexpected stops, always pleased to take pictures for us, and even took the time to help me improve my Japanese! I feel like I have made a great friend today. I couldn't have found a better person to introduce us to Tokyo. We had such an amazing day with Haruko-san! お疲れ様でした!
Sharalyn-san, thank you for taking your time to write such a wonderful and warm review for me! It is my honor to be a part of your special occasion. I truly enjoyed the tour with you and I am happy to get to know you. Please enjoy rest of your stay and have a great time! お疲れ様でした！ ありがとうございます😊
A big thank you Haruko for guiding us around Tokyo and personalising the tour to areas we wanted to see. Also your help with negotiating subway and rail which subsequently enabled us to give it a go ourselves. Overall a wonderful experience.
Lee, thank you for a wonderful review! I also enjoyed strolling around the area with you and Steve. Hope the boys liked the t-shirts and see you again! Haruko
My family and I met Haruko for a morning at Meiji Shrine followed by a nice Tonkatsu lunch. We were impressed by not only her knowledge but also that she talked to each of us (ages ranged from 11 - 79). Would definitely recommend her!
Hi, Brenden! Thank you for taking your time to write such a kind review! I truly enjoyed every single conversation with each of you! Hope that your wonderful family revisit Japan again! Please send my regards to everyone! Thank you! Haruko
We did a Tsukiji Market Tour with Haruko and she is an excellent tour guide. We learned so much from her about the market and she was patient with our kids (7 and 4 years old). I think the market would have been a stressful place for our family to navigate alone, but with Haruko we were able to truly enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend booking a tour with Haruko!
Hello, Monica! Thank you for writing such a wonderful review for me! I also truly enjoyed the Tsukiji Fish Market tour with you and your lovely family! Hope to see you again soon! Have a great summer and please send my regards to your lovely family! Thank you. Haruko
