I spent 3 days with Kim and was very satisfoed with his services. I gave his in advance my wishes and interests, and he was very attentive and precise in organising our programe. I was very satisfied with his organisation. He was always on time, pleasent, friendly and willing to please by adding new places. He was also great in suggesting excellent restaurants. I would certainly reccommend him, he is an excellent guide.
I had a wonderful tour of Tokyo with Koichiro, who took me to some of the major attractions of the city, and also some hidden restaurant gems. I found the tour very interesting, and he offered many good insights into the local culture. Koichiro was also attentive to my interests and needs, adapting the tour to look at stores or areas I was more curious to see. He also went WELL out of his way to find an electronic device for my phone that I was looking for (which was not easy to find!). Even beyond the tour, he has been great at responding to any question I've sent him. I highly recommend him for whatever tour experience you're looking for in Tokyo!
We booked 2 days with Koichiro San (feb 16 and feb 22) so this review will be for both days. Promptness is truly appreciated especially when we are pressed for time. 2 days will never be enough to see the whole city but a well thought off guide certainly did the trick. The tour was very casual, like you're touring with a friend and flexibility is a plus. He made us feel comfortable, always thinking about us whether we are hungry, tired, need to stop for some rest or need to go to the restroom. Going from one place to another by train is chaotic in Tokyo but being with him made it worry free for us. We learned a lot about the Japanese culture, heritage, customs and traditions. We (me and my wife) appreciate him for not being too time conscious like other guides do. He wouldn't show that he is in a hurry in fact he would suggest for us to stay and hang around a little bit more especially when there is so much to see in one place. Not to mention that he doesn't mind being our photographer for the day as well. it was fun to explore with him. We will definitely book again if given the chance to come back here with our kids in the near future.
Koichiro was a lovely, polite, young man who showed my 8 yo daughter and I around town. Heavily jet lagged, having just arrived the night before, he was very accommodating to our slow pace. It was nice to have a guide show us around on our first day to help us get our bearings and acclimate and navigate the subway system. Thank you!
Well planned and intresting tour. Combining knoweledge and fun.
