My husband and I enjoyed the time we spent with Eriko. She is very knowledgeable in all the places she took us - the temple, shrine, parks. She even managed to get us to a free Geisha show. Amazing. Wonderful trip. Jim and I are very grateful to have her as a guide.
We had a wonderful day exploring Tokyo with Eriko. She was very knowledgeable and took the time to teach us about the sights we visited. Her English is excellent and she is very friendly and personable. Highly recommended!
Eriko was very organized, efficient, patient and kind. She picked us up at our hotel, helped us get our Suica cards and navigate the subways, then took us on a whirlwind tour through Tokyo to the sites we had picked ( Meiji shrine, imperial palace gardens, Ueno Park and Sensoji temple ) after 25,000 step she took us back to our hotel. We had a wonderf sushi lunch at the fish market where Eriko showed us the proper way to eat sushi. She also showed us how to wash our hands before entering a shrine and how to pray at the shrine. After the tour she sent us a list of additional places we should go to ( as she knew we would be exploring on our own for the next few days) and how to get there based on my children’s interests (Pokemon Center, video games, the best place to see cherry blossoms and go row boating, museums as well as other cultural sites). Overall worth every penny. It was like having a friend in Tokyo show you around and make sure you were comfortable. THANK YOU ERIKO!!!
Eriko is a friendly person with poor knowledge about Tokyo. We did not get many explanations. In the afternoon she seemed to be already quite tired so she left us shortly after 4 pm. She was very helpfull when we wanted to change money.
This is our first trip to Japan starting in Tokyo. Eriko showed us the hightlights of Tokyo in 3,5 days. She was well prepared and learned us how to use the metro and train system. Due to the weather conditions we like to change the program and she adapted quickly. We like to thank Eriko for the first wonderful days in Japan.
We can't thank Eriko enough for spending the day with us and touring all over Tokyo. It was incredible. She really tailors the tour to your interests and is wonderful about explaining the culture and traditions. It was such a great way to see Tokyo and experience its many treasures. She even went over her time to show us to the Tokyo museum so that we could enjoy it after our tour. I highly recommend booking a tour with Eriko! Thanks again!
I would highly recommend Eriko as a guide. She was very patient in answering endless questions prior to our trip, listened and planned accordingly to the sites we wanted to see, gave insightful information on things we saw, was always on hand to interpret for us, arranged and made sure we had plenty of time in between transportation links and breaks, and made our trip seamless. It is obvious she loves her country and wants to ensure that we left with a very favourable impression of Japan. Thank you Eriko!
Thank you Eriko for a great 3 days it was a pleasure to have you as our guide in Toyko and Nikko hope to see you again of return to Japn . Cheers Graham Fuller.
Eriko is a well excellant guide and wonderful person. I am a traveler who has been to many locations around the globe and have used multiple personal guiding services. Eriko is the best...if you are considering hiring a English speaking guide, look no further. I visited Tokyo with my 2 adult children. Not only did we see the main Tokyo attractions, but she showed us many “off the beaten path” locations as well. I could go on and on, but really the main thing is she is a great person who knows the city, is educated on Japanese history and speaks excellant English. Thank you Eriko.
Eriko is a very good guide. She Is very knowledgeable and shares a lot while touring us. She also made sure we are comfortable as we are touring with our parents. I would recommend her as a guide.
We were very surprised to find Eriko at our front door. We then headed out and Eriko was extremely helpful and considerate to the fact i use a walking stick.she went out of her way to save me walking as much as possible. I can only say she was ********** each day was really good,her english was excellent and i would not hesitate to utilise her services again should i come back to Japan.
What a wonderful tour Eriko provided for our family of 4 on our first full day in Tokyo. She is an incredibly warm and kind lady and she went to great lengths to make sure that we were all comfortable, especially our 8 year-old son. Having her expertise to navigate the complex train system, avoid pedestrian vs. cart collisions in Tsujiki Fish Market and explain the rich history of Hamaroken Garden was invaluable. She takes a lot of time and care to ensure a positive experience for her guests.
We spent a wonderful day in Tokyo with Eriko. She contacted us prior to our departure from Australia to ask about the places we wanted to visit and suggested some more. Her itinerary was perfect, she helped us understand the Tokyo railway system and suggested a great sushi place for lunch. I highly recommend Eriko. She is a fabulous guide and a genuinely lovely and caring lady.
Eriko was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. She shared her knowledge of Japanese history and culture with us. We enjoyed our tour is Asakusa area. It was a lovely way to begin our stay in Tokyo.
We were very happy with Eriko in all respects. She arrived on time and was courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. We changed our itinerary at the last minute and she was able to accommodate our request without hesitation. we covered various sights in a short time. Eriko was also very helpful before the tour and after the tour with regards to some information and guidance.
My wife and I had an excellent tour with Eriko. We visited the Meiji Shrine and Akasura shopping and temple during the 4 hour tour. Eriko was the perfect guide, providing practical and historical information and getting us to the sites efficiently. She responded to all of our requests, and we had pleasant conversations on our subway trips. Her email communication with us to confirm details of the tour was immediate every time. We would highly recommend Eriko and this tour.
Many thanks to our guide Eriko who took us on a full day tour in Tokyo - 1 adult, 1 x 15 year old, 1 x 12 year old and 1 x 11 year old. We were staying in an Air BnB house which was tucked away down tiny streets and Eriko kindly came to our house to pick us up to start the tour. This alone was very kind and appreciated. We visited Meiji Shrine and learned so much about the history & culture of Japan! We also saw the Imperial Palace, Asakusa and the Skytree. Loved the delicious lunch too! We took the learnings from Eriko and applied them to the rest of our tour - not only practically, catching buses & trains, but the information she gave us informed us culturally for the rest of our stay. She was so thrilled that the kids could speak a little Japanese & made them feel very special when they spoke to her in her language. Highly recommend Eriko who can tailor your tour to suit you! Thank you Eriko!!
Eriko did a great job is showing my wife and I around Tokyo on our first day. It was our first day in Japan so it was comforting to have a local show us the transport system and cultural aspects. Eriko was considerate and patiently as my wife is pregnant and our pace was not too fast. :)
Contacted Eriko for my sister, who just arrived in Nagoya, to help her find her way in the Japanese public transport, and visit cultural heritages, Eriko was very flexible in time, location and program and helpful. Felt very much at ease, and enjoyed the day ! will definitively recommend her !
We had the kiso vally tour with eriko. We enjoied this tour very much. Eriko showed us all these georgios houses and explaind a lot. One of our highlights was lunch in japanese style in tsumago. We would like to thank her for that great day in that unique area. 5 stars, top guide!
Eriko is an excellent guide. I had such a great time thanks to her, she is wonderful!! I just wanted you to know how happy I was with the tour, and thank Eriko for a marvelous time.
Eriko was an incredible tour guide. We covered a lot of ground and Eriko was able to explain every place we visited along the way. She was thoughtful and was very patient and flexible even though our group kept getting separated from one another. She even booked us a traditional tea ceremony which was my favorite part. I was overall very impressed with her professionalism and knowledge about the country. I would 1000% book Eriko again if I'm ever back in Tokyo.
We had amazing time during our tour with Eriko, She helped us cover Tokyo city in a day, knew a lot of Tokyo history, her itinerary planning is also good. Her English is good and easily to communicate with her. Recommended
Eriko has made our trip enjoyable. She plans the trip well and making sure and also took care of my kids too. Recommended for those with family
