I have never met a more caring, warm and professional guide in all my travel around the world, we had a wonderful time in Tokyo. She is a well educated professional guide who gave us a lot of indepth knowledge about the history and culture of the Japanese people. She was so caring as well in terms of looking after are well-being so much so that she even helped us with our shopping as well. I would recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo and will contact her the next time I happen to visit. Thanks for everything and we sincerely wish her all the best.

Erika san Thank you for your great review! It was wonderful time to be with Hedlund family. I was so glad to share a pleasant time with them. And thank you for your supportive consideration. You must be great secretary.
Atsuko made our first day in Tokyo an awesome experience, showing us around several key highlights of the city whilst providing background history, how to use the train systems, and other information which has made our following days alot easier! Thank you Atsuko!
Thank you for your wonderful review Ammo! I'm glad that you enjoyed the tour. I had great time with you and your lovely girlfriend. I was inspired from you since you know a lot about Japanese history then I've just started to read books about Bushido and GORIN no syo written by Musashi Miyamoto. If we have a chance to see you again I can tell you more about samurai. Thank you again and have a wonderful time in Japan !
There is no better way to start an initial visit to Tokyo than to spend the day with Atsuko. She was warm, personable, knowledgeable and very organized. My family thoroughly enjoyed the day with her.
Thank you very much for your sweet review! It's my great pleasure to be your guide. You are such a beautiful family. I had a very pleasant day with your family. I was wondering how it was going on your trip to Takayama because of rain. I hope you had a wonderful time in Japan. If you have any plan to back to Tokyo please contact me and hope to see you again!!
Thank you, Atsuko. You were a wonderful guide.
