Michiko was a superb guide but more importantly a wonderful lady. We had a great time with her. It was like traveling with an old friend. Very willing to make last minute changes to accommodate us. Highly recommend her if you want to learn all there is to Japanese history and culture.
Thank you very much for giving me such an excellent review. I'm glad to hear that you felt as if you were traveling with an old friend. I felt the same way, you are very friendly so I enjoyed the time sharing with you. I hope you have a wonderful time in the Celebrity Millennium. Von Voyage!
Michiko met us on time at the Yokohama cruise port and took us into Tokyo for a full day, 10 hour tour. We covered a lot of ground and saw sights that we would never be able to see if we tried this tour on our own. She handled the trains and subways efficiently, like a pro, she also mananged to spend time with everyone in our tour group. She did s fantastic job getting us around and showing us Tokyo. This is one of the best private tours we have had.
Thank you very much for giving me such an excellent review. I'm glad to know all of you enjoyed my tour. 10 hour tour of Tokyo from Yokohama cruise port was a tight schedule . Before I met all of you, I was little bit concerned about it, but you walked and changed trains many times without any problems. That helped me a lot to handle the tour. Thank you for all of your corporation. Now, please be relax on the sea day and enjoy your cruising time! Von voyage!!!
Michiko is very easy to be with and an excellent interpreter. She guided us on a 1/2 day Tour of Tokyo and even gave us important information on how to use the complicated Train system. The most important event for me was meeting my Japanese family, who do not speak English. She interpreted effortlessly and the day went without a glitch. I would highly recommend Michiko for Tokyo tours and any interpreter needs. She is a delight.
Thank you very much for giving me the excellent review. I also enjoy sharing time with all of you not only guiding but also the reunion of your family at Fuku-san's house. I was moved by the seashore story you told. I hope every thing goes well for both of your family!
My wife, 2 sons and myself had a great day with Michiko, who is a lovely person. Our planned itinerary had to be adjusted because of the poor weather and may have been a challenge for Michiko which was met! What we did together was very good - thanks. If anyone was thinking of hiring a guide, you will not be disappointed with Michiko, who is a star!
Thank you for sending me such an excellent review. Since it was poor weather in Hakone and we couldn't ride a ropeway and an excursion ship.(Instead we saw an interesting scene that two fish were dead in big waves of lake Ashi.) I was little concerned about if you were satisfied with my tour. But now I'm glad to have your warm comment.. Thank you and take care!
Michiko, was great and gave us a good overview of Tokyo in one day! Despite the heat, we enjoyed our visit and thank Michiko for her courtesy.
Dear laura, Thank you very much for giving me such an excellent review. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed my tour, especially "Asakura Museum of Sculpture". That museum is one of my favorite ones. How was your way back from Omotesando to your hotel ? I believed that you enjoyed taking a walk along the nice street even under the heat. Michiko
