“ Good guide for a quick tour of major sights ”

Michiko conducted the basic highlights tour of Tokyo for me -- my one-day stop in Tokyo. Everything went smoothly. She is knowledgeable about the sights and easy to talk to.

Michiko is an excellent guide. She is very informative and extremely patient. We arranged for two tailor-made visits - a first for her! - and it seemed like she had years of experience on both! Highly recommended!!

Michiko was so great to have as a tour guide for my first day in Tokyo! She is very kind and knowledgeable, and her English is excellent. Not only did we have a great tour, but she very graciously helped me learn the subway system and get a pass card, which was invaluable. She took me to her favorite Ramen restaurant in Asaksa which was my favorite meal of the trip! Seeing my interest in learning the Japanese alphabets, she gave me a fun little lesson on the boat ride. Without her commentary, I would not have understood half of what I saw. Wish we did more days! Arigato Gozaimashita Michiko-san!

Just back from our 2 week cruise around Japan, China and Taiwan. Michiko was a wonderful guide. We only had 5 hours and she managed to fit in a whirlwind informative tour of the important parts of Tokyo. Her command of English was excellent and her sense of humour was lovely. Right from the very start, she made us feel like we were being shown around Tokyo by a friend and not a paid guide. She was fun and easy to be around and we left her regretting not having longer in Tokyo with her. A huge thank you to her and next time we are in Tokyo we will be in touch... Highly recommend!
