“ 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.

“ Busy day in Tokyo ”

We had a custom designed tour with Atsuko. She picked us up at our hotel on time and took us to all the sites we had agreed on. She was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with her. Atsuko took us to some very interesting places and was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend.

Atsuko:

Thank you very much for wonderful review Suzette! I was so glad to share a plasant time with you. Did you go to Shinjyuku gyoen park ? I hope you enjoyed the garden and cruise where you visited all the places. If you have plan to come back Tokyo please feel free to contact me. I hope to see you again one day!

“ Walking tour of Tokyo ”

What can I say except what a fantastic person to show you the sights of Tokyo!! Made us a ease from the moment that we meet at our hotel to the time when Atsuko left us at Shinjuku station. Very knowledgable and informative, helped us with buying out metro card, took us to a traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch and really crammed in a lot into the 6 hour tour, more than we would have done on our own. Would definitely recommend as a guide 100%....

Atsuko:

Thank you for wonderful review Matt ! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the tour. It was great time to be with yours. You remaind me London life cause of your british accent like 007 james bond. You enjoyed different food and culture which the purpose of your wife to visit Japan. I hope you had a wonderful time in Tokyo. Thank you again and hope to see you someday.
