Michiko was very responsive to our requests and knowledgeable about the Nikko area. We had a great day and I would definitely recommend Michiko.
Thank you for your review. I'm really happy you liked that area where most tourists don't notice. I hope you've refreshed yourselves! Please say hello to your wonderful children for me.
We cannot say enough about Michiko. She is an excellent tour guide! She designed our tours so well making sure that we made the most of our time. She arrived at our hotel with a beautiful smile and ready to hit the ground running - literally. There is absolutely no way that we could have seen so much of Tokyo without her. Her knowledge of the city and the subways is amazing. My husband and I most definitely recommend Michiko as Tokyo's tour guide. She is kind and very personable. We came to see her as friend in the very short time we spent with her. Michiko thank you for your time! My birthday cake was great!
Thank you for your review. When I met you two at the first time, I felt as if I had met my old friends. I really enjoyed the tour including a hidden sweet tour with you. Actually, I think it was tough tour for you but you kept going to the end. Victory goes to the person who can stay the course!
Hi Michiko, thank you so much for spending two wonderful days with me in Tokyo and showing me so many hidden highlights. I learned so much about the country, city, culture, Japanese customs and food. I hope we can explore some more when I come back to Tokyo next year.
Thank you for your review. The two paintings were so much fun, weren't they? Let's find something interesting from now on and share them next time. I'm looking forward to seeing you again!
We had a party of four and Michiko showed us around Tokyo for the day. We were impressed with her organizational prowess. We were able to see more than we expected and she tailored the tour to our specific interests. She was pleasant and professional. She excels in her knowledge of arts and horticulture.
I'm so happy that I've heard from you again! Actually, I forgot to say something to your mother. It is that she has brought up wonderful children. You and your brother have excellent empathy skills and can see things from a different perspective. That is to say, you are kind and considerate and very nice people. I believe these people can make the world more peaceful place. I respect you all!
We had a great time with Michiko, she was very accommodating and extremely friendly and flexible. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. We did Tokyo Day trip, Nikko Day Trip & Kamakura Day Trip with her, all 3 were excellent. Her warm personality and humbleness really made us feel very comfortable. As it was super hot in tokyo, she took taxis for us, and would not even let us pay. We thank you Michiko for excellent time Regards Avantika & Rohit
Thank you very much foy your kind words. I've learned a lot about your country's culture from you, Avantika. You two are smart people with not only excellent understanding but also warm personality. It was one of the happiest opportunities of my life as a guide to work for you. I'm very proud of having guided outstanding people like you. I wish you two a very bright future ahead.
