“ Wonderful Hospitality and Knowledge ”

Thank you for taking my parents around Tokyo. We are very grateful to have had you as our tour guide for the trip. My parents talked about all the stuff you did & how nice and knowledgeable you were with all your information and recommendations. Having a tour guide like you is perfect for my parents who rarely travel on their own. Definitely looking forward to coming back in the future.
