“ Fantastic English and Service ”

I had an excellent experience with Riko who speaks excellent English. She was able to customise a tour to my objectives and interests and in particular adjusted the iteniaruly and schedule on the spot as my wishes changed during the tour. She also went above and beyond in providing tips and directions for other days on my trip and returned early the next day unprompted to drop off an item I had left behind. I would highly recommend Riko.

“ wonderfull day in Tokyo ”

Riko did an excellent job and she is very professional. Her day plan worked perfect and we had enough time to see the pre-planned attractions and didn't loose time by transport. Her explanations are very good and all questions are answered and we learned more about Japan as we thought. always again........... thanks. Petra and Andreas

“ Sojourn to Kamakura ”

Riko picked the 4 of us up at our cruise ship and took us from Yokohama through a complicated, but inexpensive public transportation system to the wonderful sights in Kamakura. Her demeanor and insightful guidance provided us with valuable touring time in Kamakura since the cruise ship’s departure necessitated our return by 4:30 pm. In addition to helpful suggestions during shopping Riko also took us to a restaurant where locals eat. The food was excellent. Communication with the guide via emails was easy and effective. Niko’s English is excellent and her sense of humor can be well appreciated.

“ Business trip + friends ”

Riko is SO patient, and so incredibly kind. We are not an easy group to lead - especially in a foreign country. Riko made sure we saw as much of Tokyo as we could in 1.5 days, gave us tons of information, and was happy to go off schedule when someone really wanted to go somewhere/see something else. Communication was fantastic leading up to the tour, and we all left Tokyo satisfied. Thanks so much, Riko!
