Arnold was extremely friendly and helpful. The group was very happy and had a great time with him. He followed the custom itinerary and was quick to reply. I would recommend him if you need a guide in Tokyo.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Laurene, It was my great pleasure to show the group around Tokyo. I am so glad to hear that they enjoyed my tour. I had a really good time with everyone and hope to see everyone again in the future. Please let me know if you ever need an interpreter again, I will be more than happy to assist you. Sincerely, Arnold.
I don't even know where to start since my whole experience with Arnold cannot be describle. I have an amazing day spending with him who is very knowledgeable, fun, honest, humble and a little "nerdy" (in a very good way). I enjoyed his company here during my trip in Tokyo. He was flexible with the schedule and knew exactly what to do. He planed out places and activities as I wished to visit/to do. You can just simply tell him what your plans are, he will accordinate and custom your agendas with you. I also love the young and energetic vibe. If you are a solo traveler, couple, or even a family of 3 or more, I believe you shall not disappoint to book him as a private guide here in Tokyo. I cannot say enough good things about him. Please book him on your next Tokyo trips you will know what I ... read more
Thank you so much for the lovely review Sunny. I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. It was my pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I had a lot of fun and am so glad we accomplished so much within a day. Thank you for including me in your journey in Japan. I hope to see you soon. Please enjoy the rest of your vacation and have a safe one. Sincerely, Arnold.
I had an 8hr layover in Tokyo and I thought, "Why not try to see some of Tokyo while I'm here?" Arnold was the perfect guy for the job. Picked me up at the airport, helped me navigate the complex public transport system, help me try some amazing ramen and sushi, visited a temple, walked around interesting neighborhoods. He helped me see and experience so much in a short window. Arnold is very easy to talk to, personable, and excellent at balancing his recommendations with your own ideas when coordinating what to do and see. I'm not sure the next time I'll be in Tokyo, but next time I am I'm definitely seeing if he is available again.
Thank you for the wonderful review Mike! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the tour. I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving with your family. I really had a great time with you and am so glad we accomplished so much in a short time. I hope to see you again someday. Next time when you visit Tokyo, we can try the dancing game again but this time in HARD mode! Sincerely, Arnold.
We had a wonderful tour in Tokyo with the help of Arnold. Arnold is a warm hearted guide and gave us nice advice on the city tour. You won’t be disappointed if you choose him.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Kevin! It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. It was super fun to talk and share time with you and your awesome family. Your son is very cute and adorable. I had an amazing time and I hope you enjoy your stay in Japan. Thank you again and hope to see you someday. Sincerely, Arnold.
My husband and I wanted a private tour guide for a day out in Tokyo to really learn and explore the local culture. Arnold was perfect for that - he took us to a local izakaya we would have not found by ourselves or have felt comfortable going into alone… and helped us navigate Tsukiji market, the subway system and Harajuku neighborhood, tasting delicious food along the way! We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a similar experience!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Cara! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the tour. I also had an amazing time with you and your husband. It was my great pleasure to have shown you guys around Tokyo. Hopefully, I will see you all again sometime in the future. Sincerely, Arnold. P.S.- Thank you for recommending Daredevil, I will definitely be checking that out on Netflix
