Atsuko was just fabulous. She did everything that we asked of her to adjust our itinerary due to our travel weariness at the end of our long holiday. No hesitation in recommending her if you are Tokyo bound.
Thank you for fabulous review Braian. The end of the long travel get you tired. I've traveled a lot from short trip to over month trip world wide so totally understand what you feel when you were in Tokyo. I hope your leg pain is getting better. You are such a world traveler I hope to see you and your wife again. She got great sense of humor and you are wonderful couple.
Atsuko was prompt, thorough and fantastic company. My colleague and I really enjoyed our two days touring with her. I highly recommend her! She is a star!
Thank you for such a wonderful review Tim! I really enjoyed to be with you and big Lee. You guys have great sence of humor. It made me laugh a lot. Thank you for sharing your precious time with me in Tokyo. Please take care and hope to see you again.
Atsuko was a wonderful guide. Her knowledge of Tokyo was fantastic! We spent a day by ourselves fumbling around without a guide, a big mistake. Atsuko taught us so much! Her English was excellent. Thank you for a great day!!!
Thank you for wonderful review Lori ! It was fun time to talk with you. You are such a cheerful person and not afraid to try new tast. The sushi restaurant which we went is great memory for me. I hope your husband business presentation have succeeded. Please take care and hope to see you again.
My family and I had a fabulous visit to Tokyo. Atsuko spent two days with our family showing us the highlights of this city. It was great to have help navigating the subway system, locating good restaurants and a knowledgeable guide to answer all of our questions. We were able to see more places than we would have been able to tour on our own. Atsuko was a pleasure to spend time with. She designed our itinerary, set a nice pace for touring and was flexible to let us meander and rest when we wanted. We couldn’t have had a better tour of Tokyo.
Good Morning and thank you for taking time to write wonderful review for me Lori ! It was my pleasure to spend time with your beautiful family. Your family are such a nice relationship each other and pleasant to talk with. I'm so glad you enjoyed my Tokyo tour. You are head to Nikko today, hope you have a nice memorable daytrip and enjoy beautiful nature and fresh air of outside of Tokyo also World heritage site Tosyogu. I wish to meet your family again. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan.
More disorganised than expected. The biggest disappointment was spending almost an hour in a queue for Tokyo Sky Tree entry. We had stated in advance that we loathed crowds, yet were taken to the Sky Tree late morning at peak queuing time. In prior email exchanges we had received no guidance that advanced web booking or fast track was available! Unnecessarily sapping and such a waste of time that a more organised guide would have avoided. We were then tired and hungry as much lunch was later than expected. Dragged unplanned after lunch through more crowds at Ueno "Park", no grass in the Park and pethaps 2 out of 1200 cherry trees had blossom and were inundated by hordes of Japanese. On to Tokyo Station, but by then the Tokyo rush hour was starting and yet more crowds. Sorty but when we say... read more
Thank you for letting me know your feelings. I'm so sorry for any inconvenience. In Tokyo especially this time from end of March to mid April it is cherry blossom season and also spring holiday of school children so every tourist spots are very clowded. Our tour yesterday was just starting to crowd it was not usual crowd so I didn't feel what you feel. Also rusn hour starts around 6:00 PM so it was far from that hour. However I should give carefull consideration to you and others who doesn't like crowd. I think I live in Tokyo so luck of feeing of crowd. Actually you booked another tour itinerary which not include Tokyo sky tree so I didn't give you any guidance in prior email. The day before we exchange email at that time you like this itinerary spots. It was no problem for me so I didn'... read more
