“ 3 Day Private Tour of Toyoko ”

The positive experience with Atsuko started from the first email I sent to Atsuko through the Triplelights site. Feeling very overwhelmed about the possiblity of taking myself around Toyoko i decided to find a guide. Unfortunately with no referrals i had to choose someone blindly. I immediately liked Atsuko's profile, her eperience in travel and the fact she had been a flight attendant. She was extremely responsive to every email i sent, answering almost immediately (taking into account the time zone difference) and it immediatly put me at ease. I did some googling and presented what I wanted to see and she put together the 3 days. A few things that made it a great experience was -That she provided back comprehensive email responses to any questions i asked before our time tog... read more

“ Wonderful Tour of Tokyo ”

My group had a wonderful day with Atsuko wandering around Tokyo. We visited Tsukiji Market, Hamarikyu Gardens, Tokyo Station, Omotesando, Harajuku, Meiji Shrine and Shibuya. There is so much to see in Tokyo that it's hard to cover everything in one go, but this was a great overview. Atsuko also guided us to a great ramen place in Tokyo Station that had vegetarian, vegan, and even gluten free options, which was great because some in our group could not eat traditional ramen for various reasons. It was delicious! A few suggestions for future travelers: Skip Omotesando. It does have some nice architecture, but Harajuku is more interesting and by this point in the day you will start to get tired, plus it's going to be a long walk into Meiji Shrine. Save your feet the long walk.

Atsuko:

Thank you for taking time to write wonderful review Daniella ! Unfortunatly it was rain on the day of tour it's not comfotable walking in the rain. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed tour and ramen. I'll accommodate the itinerary upon your suggestions to make the tour better one. Thank you again if you have any chance to come to Tokyo please contact me.
