“ Tokyo Tour ”

Kimmy is an excellent and highly professional guide. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and patience are fantastic - just like her English. I visited Tokyo with my two children and Kimmy couldn't have been kinder or more insightful over the two sessions we had in her company. We saw so many different aspects of Tokyo and she was very mindful of the whole group, shaping the tour to match our pace and all the differing interests we had. Thank you Kimmy. It was such a pleasure to meet you.


Thanks you for sending me such a wonderful review! I enjoyed spending time with three of you.And thank to your lovely children, I found new aspects of Japan such as Supreme, cute nail print,super big rainbow cotton candy…as well. I also appreciate you tell me many knowledge about U.K. movies and dramas.These two days was a great memory for me. I am so blessed and lucky to be your guide. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

“ Incredible family experience: great guide for Tokyo highlights and food. ”

Kimmy is simply outstanding and I highly recommend her as a guide for Tokyo. Overall Kimmy is knowledgeable and passionate about her country and culture. She is friendly, energetic, approachable and very patient (a major plus when traveling with kids). She also knows great local (non-touristy) places to eat (a huge plus if you're a foodie). Beforehand, she collaborated with me to plan the our experience and customize it to our family needs (me, my wife and 2 kids: 11 and 12). During the tour, she showed us around Tokyo while sharing interesting highlights of Japanese history and traditions. At lunch time, Kimmy took us to one of the best ramen we've ever had and she also recommended a great yakitori place for dinner. Kimmy went above and beyond by helping us get subway/metro pass... read more


Thanks you for sending me such a wonderful and kind review! I was really happy to spend the time with you and your family. It was my first "OHANAMI"(Sakura viewing picnic) this year.Enjoying OHANAMI, Ramen in Ueno with you was one of my pleasant memory. I' glad to hear you enjoyed YAKITORI dinner,too. I hope you will enjoy the next vacation in NZ and please come and see me again in Tokyo. GRACIAS DE CORAZÓN and ARIGATOUGOZAIMASHITA!

“ Great customized tour for our family ”

Kimmy was a wonderful guide and adjusted her tour to meet the needs of our family AND the terrible weather. We had an amazing experience at the fish market, experienced wonderful sushi (without crowds!), navigated the subway systems and learned how to make a wish both in the Buddhist (Sensoji Temple) and Shinto (Meiji Shrine). We would highly recommend Kimmy again!


Thanks you for sending me such a wonderful review! I really appreciate that you joined my tour in spite of the terrible weather. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the Tsukiji, Sensoji Temple, and Meiji Shrine. The walking trip with 3 wonderful boys was also happy for me, thank you for giving me a great memory. Please enjoy the rest of the trip in Japan.Arigatougozaimasita!!
