“ Riko escorted two teens through Tokyo for an entire day ”

Riko was, in the words of my jaded 15 year old son, "unbelievably awesome." She was able to engage two American teens for an entire day, and the time the two spent with Riko in Akihabara was the highlight of their one week trip to Japan

“ Fantastic tour and very responsive to our needs ”

Riko provided an excellent experience for our first time in Tokyo. She communicated with us ahead of time by email to finalize details. She was very conscientious about asking us what our interests were at the beginning of the tour and went out of her way to meet those needs throughout the day. She provided a great deal of information about Tokyo and each of the sites we visited. We even enjoyed our lunch together and learned so much about the food and customs. It was a truly memorable day. I highly recommend her as a tour guide. You won't be disappointed.

“ Excellent day tour of Tokyo ”

Riko was a fantastic guide for the day, spoke excellent English and organised a diverse and interesting itinerary for our tour of Tokyo. Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed the day and I would not hesitate to recommend Riko to others.

“ Genuinely great guide ”

Riko is a very knowledgeable lady with a very friendly demeanor & good sense of humour as well as patience. She ensures that you get to do everything you have asked and offers alternatives if what you want is not available. She explains things in an easy to understand way and ensures that children are included in the tour by involving them. We not only learned about Japanese history and culture but also about what it was like to live in Tokyo (schooling, cars, metro system, shopping etc) and is honest about the "tackier" areas of the city. Riko was that good we were able to make our way across Tokyo ourselves on a different day using the railway as she had explained it so well! I would highly recommend Riko as a tour guide for Tokyo.
