“ Well-researched day tour of Tokyo's sights ”

Mayumi was great as a tour guide! Her spoken English is excellent. We would recommend her to anyone wanting to see Tokyo. Before we met, she had researched the places and routes. We discussed various ideas of where to visit before settling on a good itinerary. On the day, she gave us a lot of insight into the historical and cultural aspects of the places we were visiting. There were some little details we loved, like taking us to a good little shop that sells pancakes with bean paste. We went back to our hotel tired but having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

“ Sunshine on a rainy day ”

Although our day in Tokyo was a rainy one, that didn’t hinder Mayumi from being an amazing guide! She took took us all around, from shrines, temples, to fish markets and Harajuku fashion! Our day tour had a wonderful mix of what the city had to offer, and with Mayumi sharing her knowledge of each place, we truly appreciated Tokyo. Also, we had spur of the moment souvenir requests (from soccer apparel to Hello Kitty) and she knew exactly where to take us. She even helped us out with all of our travel needs the next few days we were in Japan- from assisting in booking our Shinkansen to/from Kyoto/Osaka to showing us New Yorkers how to navigate the subways. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide


Hi, Nicole! Thank you so much for writing a great review. Your words remind me of the wonderful day we spent together. I'd never forget your big smile when taking a picture with the Hello Kitty ribbon on your head:) Exactly, it was a rainy day, but we shared a lot of interesting experiences. I really appreciate it. I'm happy to have helped make your travel easier. I can well imagine you fully enjoyed Kyoto and Osaka too. I'm looking forward to planning your next adventure together again. Thank you!!!

“ Fantastic 2 days in Tokyo ”

Mayumi, was a wonderful guide. We had 3 children ages 6,7, and 10. Traveling through Tokyo with kids can be difficult but Mayumi made it seamless and easy. We had a great mix of seeing old and new Tokyo and Mayumi was very knowledgeable. She took us to a great Ramen shop, wonderful temple and shrines, and gardens of the imperial palace. The weather was wonderful and we even saw a few cherry blossoms. Thank you, thank you, thank you Mayumi


Thank you for your quick and sweet review, Brandon. I've just made it home from Kyoto tour, thinking of your having great days there too. I'm so happy to have been with you for the two days. Did you know that anyone who saw your kids couldn't help smiling? I often heard people saying "Kawaii!" around us. You are enjoying Tokyo and western part of Japan this time. There are peaceful and beautiful places in the eastern part of Japan too. I do want to guide you there next time. I'll be waiting for you to come back to me again. Please say hello to your wife and angels. Thank you, thank you, thank you Brandon!!!

“ Interesting visit ”

Mayumi was a great guide. Punctual, knowledgeable, interesting and interested in us too. She happily walked us around in the rain to the Palace and Asakusa and found a good sushi restaurant for lunch. At the end of our tour she took us to the museum and made sure we knew how to return to hotel by metro. We would certainly use her services again.


Thank you so much for your quick review, Deanne. I'm happy to hear you really enjoyed the tour with me in spite of the cold rain. I hope you are having a happy and safe cruise now. I have more places to show you next time. I'll be waiting for you to use my service again. Take care and say hello to Lez, please. See you!

“ Great guide one of the best ways to see Tokyo ”

With my wife and son and his wife. We were taken to all the places we wanted to see. MAyumi was the best. Nothing was too much trouble. Cheers


Thank you for posting the kind review quickly in the midst of your busy travel. I really enjoyed myself being with you and your family. You made me laugh a lot! I still can't help but chuckle when think of our trip. Thank you again for giving me such a wonderful time. Let's do another tour in and outside Tokyo next time. I believe our paths will cross again. Kisses!
