I have traveled to many different places over the years, but my time in Tokyo was the most memorable. Our guide Arnold was the best part of it all. He was on time and very knowledgeable about many different aspects of Japanese culture. I know that Arnold played a huge part in the wonderful experience we had. He is kind and very patient, and went out of his way to ensure that we were able to see and experience the things that were important to us. We would not have been able to read the train schedule or for that matter, gotten from one point to another by ourselves. I can only say "Thank You" Arnold for making this vacation the best !!! Highly, Highly recommend his services ... :-) Christopher
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Christopher! I had a wonderful time hanging out with you and Kyle. You guys are truly awesome. I can't believe we accomplished so much in a short time. Thank you for including me in your journey in Japan. Next time when you come to Tokyo, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing everyone again someday in the future. Sincerely, Arnold.
We had an awesome day with Arnold! There were 10 of us in our group and Arnold was able to help get us around a very busy city and see the sights we wanted to. He was knowledgeable and shared interesting information about Tokyo and the Japanese way of life. Arnold had a great attitude and I would definitely recommend him to anyone visiting. We were coming from a cruise ship in nearby Yokohama and he was able to meet us at the port. Arnold’s English was excellent as well! Thank you Arnold for a fantastic day!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Sara! I had a wonderful time with everyone and am so glad we accomplished so much in a short time. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour. Thank you so much once again and I look forward to seeing everyone again someday in the future. Sincerely, Arnold.
Arnold made it very easy to get from place to place because he knew the train system well. We had fun going to some of the best kids spots in Tokyo. Two thumbs for Arnold!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Tim! Your family is awesome and I had a wonderful time with everyone. I am so glad we accomplished so much in a short time. Please let me know if you ever decide to visit Tokyo again. Thank you so much once again and I look forward to seeing everyone again someday in the future. Sincerely, Arnold.
We originally hired him to take my two teenage boys while we were attending personal business. My boys were very happy and came back totally exhausted from a great schedule. We joined the boys and Arnold the second day. We had a great time. He was very engaging, had a great local knowledge, and very mindful of what we wanted. We had a great time!
Thank you so much for the lovely review Sang! I had a great time with everyone and am so glad we accomplished so much within a day. The Samurai museum was so much fun and thank you for suggesting it to me. Please enjoy the rest of your trip and thank you very much once again for hiring me. I look forward to seeing everyone again someday in the future. Sincerely, Arnold.
We were only scheduled to be in Tokyo for a few days when we booked our tour with Arnold. Thanks to him, we struck off everything on our lists in just one day! He was accommodating, patient, and thorough, customizing an entire tour of the city based on our interests, requests, and preferences. He even went to an animal cafe with us and took pictures! Thanks to him we were able to experience the hidden and authentic spots of the city--places we could have never enjoyed if we didn't have a native Japanese local with us. Trips to a hidden gem in ithe Tsukiji fish market (a highlight of our entire trip) and instructions on how to draw fortunes at Sensoji Temple were just some of the wonderful things we experienced with Arnold. He is a fluent English speaker who studied and worked in America fo... read more
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Kim! I had a wonderful time with everyone and am so glad we accomplished so much in a short time. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed my tour. The Tsukiji fish market is by far my favorite part as well. Thank you so much once again and I look forward to seeing everyone again someday in the future. Sincerely, Arnold.
