“ Excellent Guide and Knowledgeabel ”

Atsuko was very professional and on time. She also was very courteous and accommodating and did not mind if I took some extra time exploring at some locations. Her English is fluent and I did not have any trouble understanding at all. She is also prompt with her responses and answered all questions that I had. In addition, I did not have to spend any extras for transportation as she had her own subway pass. I would definitely request for Atsuko on my next Tokyo visit.

Atsuko:

Thank you for your great reviw Robert and thank you for sharing your precious time with me. I was suprised that you know many japanese words especially seafood. I hope you enjoyed sushi lunch at I recommended restaurant with your frind Cindy. Hope you have a wonderful time at Kawaguciko lake and Nagano!

“ Great Tour Guide ”

Atsuko met me and my son in our hotel lobby, she was on time and very friendly. She helped us figure out the train system and took us to the areas that we wanted to go. I mentioned I was interested in the Shibuya crossing and she added the location to our itinerary. During our tour, my son lost one of the anime books he purchased, so she made an extra stop so I could purchase another book for him.I would definitely use her as a tour guide the next time I'm in Tokyo.

Atsuko:

Thank you for wonderful review Regina! It was great time to be with you and your son. I'm so glad that you liked my tour. Thank you for shareing your precious time with me in Tokyo.I hope to see you again!!

“ Atsuko is a wonderful guide ”

Atsuko is a very organized, knowledgeable, accommodating, and friendly guide. I presented her with some very specific and not necessarily typical interests and Atsuko put together a perfect itinerary. She was also great when I suggested a late change to the itinerary, seamlessly adjusting our plans. I highly recommend her as a guide!

Atsuko:

Thank you for taking time to write such a wonderful review Jon! It was interesting challenge for me. I could learn many spots cause of your interest. Thank you for sharing your precious time with me. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the tour. I hope to see you again someday.
