“ Wonderful guide ”

Atsuko arrived on time in our hotel and we went through the whole itinerary, even adjusting it when I wanted to visit a specific store. Atsuko speaks good English, is informative and has a very friendly personality. It was a pleasure spending the day with her and I can certainly recommend her.

“ Fantastic Guide!!! Highly recommend ”

Our first day with Atsuko was fantastic. She guided us thru the Tokyo transportation (taught us so well that we were able to navigate the last 2 days on our own - even tackling Tokyo Station) and took us to some of the different areas of Tokyo. We are looking forward to seeing more with Atsuko tomorrow. We would highly recommend her as a tour guide and she will enhance your trip. Jason, Leane and Kyla

“ Great tour guide with great personality ”

Atsuko was great right from where we met at the train station. She helped me purchase a train card and explained how it was used. She took me to all the sites that I wanted to see including to a maid cafe which was very fun. I think Atsuko had more fun than I did as she laughed at me with my bunny ears! The Hamarikyu Garden was gorgeous and Atsuko explained the plants and the history of the garden which was fascinating. For lunch I wanted to eat something Japanese but also something that I had never eaten before so Atsuko took me to an excellent Japanese restaurant and helped me order food. I don't speak Japanese so Atsuko's translations were awesome. I could never had done this tour by myself without her help. Atsuko also took me to the Tokyo tower, a must see for me, which was incredible. I would not think twice to hire Atsuko again for more sight seeing in the future. If you are looking for a guide that is friendly, funny, and very helpful then look no further. I highly recommend Atsuko for your sight seeing tours.

“ What an amazing Lady! ”

Atsuko has been all that we could wish for in a Guide for our visit to Tokyo, and more. We gave her our 'Wish List' Itinerary three months before our arrival, and we will achieve all of our aims, which is down to Atsuko's amazing efficiency. She has a wonderful personality, and has a great sense of humor. We could wish for no one better to be our Guide, than this amazing Lady. We anticipate returning to Tokyo again, sometime early 2018 and we shall be booking Atsuko well in advance of our arrival date.

“ Atsuko was fantastic ”

It was the first day of our first ever visit to Tokyo. Atsuko put together an itinerary that had us visit the major highlights and gave us a great orientation of the city. She showed us how to use public transit and suggested some wonderful places to visit for the next days when we would be on our own. Her English is excellent and she relates very well to Americans which made our day a lot of fun. She easily conveyed her knowledge of history and culture of Japan. Overall we had a great day and I would strongly suggest Atsuko as a guide and we would use her next time in Tokyo.

“ Tour in Tokyo ”

Atsuko was a great and pleasant company with her fine education and professional competence. Without her assistance we would have been unable to carry out the schedule we had worked out.

“ The best of the best ”

My wife and I could not have chosen a better and informative guide. Her knowledge of the city and the highlights was fantastic, and getting to know her personally was such pleasant experience. If you are lucky to get her, you will be rewarded with a great personality. That smile of hers equals the beauty of Sakura.

“ Great one-day tour of Tokyo ”

Mrs. Atsuko is an amazing guide! I really enjoyed the visit of Daiba with Atsuko and the great lunch at the Japanese restaurant that Atsuko arranged for me. The water cruise was also a fun experience since we lucked out to get on board to the coolest ship. I want to thank you again for everything you did during my stay in Tokyo. I will keep on learning Japanese and hope when we meet next time, I can speak more. Best wishes to you and your family.

“ 1day tour in Tokyo ”

This day was the highlight of my Tokyo trip. It was my first visit to Japan. Thanks to Atsuko, I got to know Tokyo and the main attractions. She was waiting for me at the hotel reception even before the time. We went to different places and areas using the subway which helped me to understand the subway system in Tokyo. She was very keen to explain the background of all the places we visited. She even did the effort to find a traditional Japanese restaurant with HALAL food. To make long story short, the day tour with Atsuko was very enjoyable and helpful. I recommend anyone- specially first time vistors- to go with Atsuko. That will give you a very good highlight of Tokyo.

“ Above and beyond ”

Atsuko is an awesome guide to have. Very friendly and easy to travel around with. Very knowledgeable. Definitely went above and beyond on showing me everything I needed to know and even what to do to after we departed. I will definitely let her know when I plan to go ban to Japan.

“ Meiji-jingu and Asakusa ”

I chose this tour based on the guide's (Atsuko) description the Meiki temple, "a special oasis in the midst of all the big-city hustle and bustle." She was right! I enjoyed the peaceful walk and her description of the area, trees, and history. I was quite jet-lagged, and thankfully she slowed her pace to match mine. The famous gate at Asakusa did not disappoint, but I especially liked browsing the stalls of the surrounding streets with Atsuko. She patiently answered questions about everything from matcha vs. green iced tea to Japanese socks, Tabi and etiquette. Atsuko is a kind and cheerful guide, flexible and fun! I highly recommend her!
