Important

Admission fee is NOT included in the guide fee.

“ Fantastic!! ”

Tak is the best guide ever. We saw so much in 3 hours. And he explained everything. Also had the best tempura I have had in my life. He is so friendly and knows all of the out of the way places. Whatever we were interested in he knew how to find it. Thank you Tak-san!!

Tak:

And, both of you are fantastic guests. I felt utmost happiness because you enjoyed everything you saw and touched. I'm looking forward to talking to you again someday you came back to Japan. Have a good flight and I wish your memories will be kept forever. Tak

“ Friendly, Warm, and Accommodating ”

We started our travels in Japan with Tak taking us around Tokyo. We accomplished so much and had such a good time on our first day that we decided to book Tak for a second day. Tak paid attention To what we wanted to do and who we were and he was a gentle supportive presence as we acclimated ourselves to Tokyo and Japan. His good humor and warm presence felt almost familial. My son and I felt super comfortable with him and appreciated his commitment to getting us from point a to b and keeping our time somewhat structured and loose at the same time. Highly recommended!!!

Tak:

Dear Neal. It was wonderful time to spend with you and Adam. Smiling faces are nothing but the best reward to us guides. You gave me nothing but the best reward by enjoying every moments of 2 days. I heard your experience in Japan goes on for more days. I believe you can find great fans in every moment in Japan. Thank you and see you someday. Tak

“ Wonderful Day ”

Tak was fantastic. He worked with us before our trip to plan our day and offered great suggestions. Communication was throughout our planning and our day. For the day of the tour, he met us at our hotel and showed us how to use the subway system. He provided interesting facts, taught us easy ways to remember some key Japanese worlds and has a thorough knowledge of Tokyo and it’s history. He’s also quite funny. We has a lot of fun spending our first day in Tokyo with him. We highly recommend Tak as a guide to show you around the city.

Tak:

Dear Kimberly Thank you for the great day and splendid 5 stars. It is the best moment when I could confirm guests spent happy time. As I said I’ll never forget smiling faces of you. I’ll try hard to join the Olympic Games in 2024 in LA, as I promised. i’ll be 68 at that time though.OMG I say again thank you so much. Tak

“ It was a nice experience ”

It was nice meeting Tak, he’s very friendly and an easy going person. Our first meeting day was somewhat unplanned and a bit complicated, but on the second day, he was able to prepare my itinerary and made it convenient for us to move around to many places through subway. I wanted to book him again after our second meeting but It was unfortunate that he didn’t have enough time to join me on the third day due to new year activities Thank you very much Tak for your kind assistance and I hope to meeting you again.

Tak:

Dear Victor. They were busy days but happy to visit a lot of sight seeing spots with you.. It was also happy to assist your journey not only for the time you booked me but also days after that. I'm sorry I couldn't accept your offer to book more days. I wish your tour would be completed without any trouble. I say again thank you so much and I hope to see you again in Tokyo, Cambodia or Nigeria, someday.
