“ Amazing tour of Tokyo with a great tour guide! ”

Hiromi was an amazing tour guide. She was very quick to respond to inquiries and worked with me to create a personalized tour of Tokyo. She even helped me find my Japanese pancakes that I wanted and could not leave Tokyo without trying them. She is very knowledgeable, her tour hit all the highlights we wanted, she navigated the crazy Tokyo subway like a pro and got us to each destination without any issues. Hiromi is awesome, if you come to Tokyo, please do yourself a favor and hire Hiromi!!!! Thanks for a great tour!!!!!

Hiromi:

Thank you very much for writing great review!! It was very nice meeting 2 of you! The pancake place you chose was great discovery for me as well. Thank you for giving me interesting experience. I will not forget the wonderful time we shared together :)

“ Well organized and prepared ”

Hiromi was well prepared for the tour. She took me to some interesting places and i was able to accomplish what i was looking for. I would just add a comment..compared with other similar tours i took, the tour would be much better if Hiromi would throw in more interesting facts about Japan in general as we walk from place to place and not just when we get to the place. She definitely answered all my questions but other tourguides i had were able to bring up very intetesting facts about Japan and tbe lications we were visiting that I would never ask about because i would not know to ask.That nade those tours so much more intetesting.But that is just FYI....

Hiromi:

Dear Michal Thank you very much for writing the review. Customer's feed back is very important for me to make my tour better. I appreciate the review. I hope many nice photos you have taken in the tour leave you lots of good memory of Japan.

“ An insightful tour ”

Hiromi was on time and polite and new the Japan rail system like the back of her hand! She was so kind and helpful and very well informed about the Japanese Tea Ceremony and the Gardens and was about to educate my mother and I. It was great spending the day with Hiromi and I highly recommend her to everybody!

Hiromi:

Thank you very much for writing review. It was very nice meeting you and your mother. During the tea ceremony, I could see you and your mother are very interested in Japanese culture. It is my pleasure to know that I could introduce some part of our culture. Thank you for being my guest. Hopefully see you again some day :)
