“ Great tour with Namie! ”

We truly enjoyed our one-day tour Tokyo with Namie. She's knowledgeable, kind, and sweet person.We have learned some Japanese culture and history while enjoying the landscape and scenery. We highly recommend Namie.

NAMIE:

Hi, Tom. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour. Both you and your wife truly made me feel relaxed during the tour, which brings me a happy up-tempo walk. You had several good purchases at Bic Camera and that was an opportunity for me to learn to show my future customers how to grab the best price of quality items. I try to cover these kinds of shopping for foreign travellers. Thank you Tom, your shopping experience makes me a better guide! Take care. Give my best regard to Mindy. Namie

“ Great time visiting onsen and fake food workshop ”

I had a really enjoyable time with Namie. I had organised to meet with the owner of a fake food workshop as part of a research trip and she translated our conversations perfectly. We also visited an onsen in Shinjuku which was really lovely, we had hot stone therapy and enjoyed the baths. Namie made sure I was comfortable and was great to chat with, we had a wonderful day together - it was like hanging out with a friend!

NAMIE:

Hello, thank you for the review. I really enjoyed my Saitama trip with you and it was a precious experience in the factory. You perfectly understood the owner's idea and sense, which he was happy about. I′m proud of having an artist like you as my guest! Now I feel more familiar with artistic things than before all thanks to you. Keep creative, believe in your sense! Hope you′ll make many other works in the future. Glad to meet you!(^^)

“ Patient, incredibly kind and knowledgeable tour guide ”

I had the absolute pleasure of having Namie show me around various parts of Tokyo for 4 days during my stay in Japan. I’m back in my home country now and have already raved about her to so many family and friends. I am not a seasoned traveller but I did have some places I wanted to visit that weren’t the typical touristy type of spots so Namie helped put together an itinerary that reflected my requests while also adding in some familiar landmarks too. Namie was a pleasure from Day One. Patient and upbeat. She helped me navigate the subway and train system with ease and precision. We covered a lot of ground each day and yet she was always mindful of my energy levels and very considerate to take breaks. I would not hesitate to book Namie again. She is a wealth of knowledge, and quite si... read more

NAMIE:

Hi, Erena. I'm happy to hear that you're back to normal self after the terrible pain (Again, my apology that I couldn't be there.). Finally you made a day trip to Kyoto next day, which I got surprised about. You're such a unique and strong traveller, always looking around local things and trying to get the most of Japan. Honestly I was blind of art and furniture before you showed me your preferences, and now I feel I have more choices to suggest to my future customers. Thank you for opening up my eyes, Erena. You stepped me up, you made me have more guiding tips of me! That was a milestone encounter for me. Please say hi to your husband. Have a happy summer season in NZ!

“ Made a great friend while exploring Tokyo. ”

I came across TripleLights while looking for a rent-a-friend service and couldn't be happier with the results. Namie filled the role of friend, translator, tour guide, and good sport no matter what antics we had planned for the day. Namie did a good job preparing for the locations we intended to visit in Akihabara prior to meeting up (maid cafe, cosplay store, brandy bar, and art gallery). She may not of been an expert on them, but it didn't stop her from pointing out what factoids she could. Shortly into our 6 hour booking, she warmed up to our off-kilter sense of humor and sensed we were not looking for a tour guide, and simply wanted to spend time with a local. This was the magical moment when we discovered how warm and friendly Namie is, where I think she ended up having just as much f... read more

NAMIE:

Mike, I was about to jump up from excitement because you gave me a five-star rate and best advertisement of me. You will surely make me get more customers′ bookings in the future. I appreciate it in advance! Each moment I spent with you, is really unforgettable for me, visiting art-focused places, jokeing at each other, having a sip of brandy...yes, exactly the way of friends passtime. I hope we can meet again someday in the future.

“ Warm welcome and attentions! ”

Namie was very nice and accommodating. Throughout our visit she not only shared interesting information specific to our tour but also more broadly about the Japanese culture. She also did not hesitate to help sort out some travel arrangements that were challenging due to the language barrier. Thank you Namie for a wonderful afternoon!

NAMIE:

Thank you very much for having me around. I enjoyed myself while we walked and talked in Harajuku. You're such a perfect couple, trying to offer a secret plan to each other. Hope you can enjoy Toba area and next Wubud! Safe journey! (^_^)

“ The best tour guide that I have had in my entire life! ”

There are not enough good things that I can say about our tour guide Namie! She was on time and we were able to get our day started ahead of schedule since we had a plane to catch that afternoon. Namie had our route mapped out and she made sure that I was able to see everything that was on my wish list within our tour time slot. She went out of her way to make sure that We had the best experience and that I was able to buy a lot of hello Kitty items for my daughter. She is even a great photographer and took the best photos of me in Harajuku. But, this is not even the best part about her. We were there during the typhoon and when she delivered us to the bus terminal, we found out that our bus to the airport was canceled. Namie spent a few extra hours with us outside of what was required to ... read more

NAMIE:

Hi, thank you very much for rating me as five star, and giving me wonderful message. Our trip to Harajuku was the most exciting one that I ever had, because you are a fashionista and good at being in Harajuku mood. I was so proud of my having you around in my Harajuku walk! Again I feel sorry for all the foreign travellers at the airport on Sep 9 - 10. Your pain, (squeezed in a cab, restless night, language problem...)I will surely try to remember it for Japan's better tour infrastructure. I will learn how to handle the unusual situation as a professional guide. Thank you for booking me and good to hear you enjoyed Sentosa vacation finally.

“ We saw a lot! ”

Namie is a delight to be with and extremely thoughtful of her clients. My only minus would be that she was not always right on the directions we should go. I am sure she will learn more of the city in time. I would have her again.

NAMIE:

Thank you for the review, Marilyn. It was a tough tour to compell you to walk a lot. I promise I will learn more about city and hospitality to offer you better guiding next time. Thank you again for choosing Japan as your tour destination. Please give my best regard to Maria.

“ Amazing Day With Namie! ”

Namie showed us around Harajuku and Shibuya for a couple of hours! We were able to see Meiji Jingu, Takeshita St and Shibuya Crossing. She went out of her way and spent some extra time with us to help my mum find some items for her friend which I am grateful for! Wish we had booked Namie for a longer if I had known it would take more time than expected!! Would recommend to book for at least 4-5 hours to go around Harajuku if you want to see Meiji Jingu and go shopping as there are many shopping streets (Takeshita Street, Cat Street, Omotesando Street). Thank you for showing us around and sorry for keeping you back for almost an hour.

NAMIE:

Hi, thank you very much that you rated me five-star! You and your mom were both warm-hearted, also patient with a packed-train ride, a long walk, and heavy rain. I was not really good at time management but finally your mom could get that cosmetic at the right place, which I feel relieved about. Thank you for giving me your assist during the hours and the wonderful gift from Australia. I wish you the very best, and please give your mom my regard. Enjoy the itenerary furthermore in Japan! SAFE trip! Namie

“ Amazing guide !!!!! ”

Namie is a delightful guide. We feel so lucky to have chosen her. She is very professional yet very friendly. She knows a lot of details not listed in guide books. She is conscientious, and makes sure that we get in the right metro line to get back to our hotel. She went out of her way to take us to places that we are interested in, ie fabrics stores and washi stores and the fish market auction. Her english is very good as she has travelled all over Asia. We highly recommend her. Thank you Namie!!!!!!

NAMIE:

Thank you John! I am so happy to see your comment. I hope you will have a safe and fruitful tour to Hakone, Nara, kyoto, and let us meet again on 20th May. Can't wait for the day(^_^)

“ Great Tour ”

Namie provided a marvelous tour with great local experience to insightful historical stops.

NAMIE:

Hi, thank you for the review. I myself enjoyed the tour with you and learned a lot of cultural gap through our conversation. Luckily my host family in Selangor (1997 summer) will visit Tokyo this autumn, which makes me so motivated to go to Malaysia again. We unioned on ******* a few days ago. I also hope to see you again someday. Have wonderful days ahead, good luck in everything!

“ 3 days tour of Tokyo ”

We had wonderful 3 days in Tokyo with Namie. She showed great care for us , tried to help us with everything even for our plans in the evenings. She completed all our program on time and in a very professional way. We were specially impressed with her "human touch" beyond the regular program fullfilment. We recommend Namie cfor every Tokyo visitor

NAMIE:

Thank you Daniel, for all the positive messages. Each of you were tough to move around Tokyo from morning to late night, which was really impressive! I was lucky to have a chance to attend you guys, the very first guests from Israel. I learned a lot of culture differences through our conversation. Now I determined to be a better guide to show my future guests more-detailed Japan tips. I really had good experiences in these three days with you cos you are smart travellers and also well-prepared in your daily movement. Thank you again, and good luck on your following trip!

Thank you Namie for a wonderful day in Tokyo. We enjoyed the market, cafes, and exhibitions and you made it so easy and stress free for us to see so much in a short time. We hope to see you again on our next trip. Best wishes. Deborah & Michael

NAMIE:

Hi, Deborah. It was nice to hear from you and I appreciate to the heartful message. I hope to see you again either in Tokyo or Bangkok! Say hello to your husband. Namie

 リビューが遅くなりすみません。なみえさんからたくさんのことを学ぶことができました!3時間のうちに、なるべくたくさんの場所へ行けるように予定を立てて下さったし、途中変更があっても柔軟に対応して下さっていたので、すごいなと思いました。よく写真を撮りましょうかと聞いて下さったり、ツアーの最後に帰り道を丁寧に教えて下さったことも嬉しかったです。今回、ツアーガイドについて学びたいという理由で申し込んで、大丈夫かなと思ったのですが快く色々なことを教えて下さり、嬉しかったです。この経験を糧にしてこれからも頑張りたいと思います。なみえさん、本当にありがとうございました!これからもがんばって下さい。 read more

レビューをありがとうございました。感動のメッセージです! 既に東京には何度もお越しのようでしたから、「外国人訪問者に向けて」に絞ってのご案内となりましたが、とにかくひたすら歩く行程にお付き合いいただきありがとうございました。 近い将来、本当にいいガイドさんになれそうですね。ご活躍をお祈りしています。このたびはご指名ありがとうございました。

“ Tokyo Tour ”

Namie, is a delightful and very knowledgable tour guide, who provided me with a whistle stop trip around some of Tokyo’s best known landmarks. I would recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo for the first time.

NAMIE:

Thank you for the heartful message! I enjoyed walking with you and felt happy that you could finally get yukata for your daughter. I was lucky to meet a tech-guy like you, which opened up my eyes to apps and technology. Thank you again for your treat on lunch. I will definitely visit London in my future trip.

“ Tokyo city ”

Our experince with namie was fantastic. Very helpful and kind! Assisted us with many activities and really put effort in trying to take us out and about. She assisted us to get tickets before we even arrived in tokyo which was really sweet! She took us to many differnt places and also helped us find certain destinations. Would highly recommend her.

NAMIE:

Hello, James. Thank you for the wonderful message and it encouraged me so much when I need to make every possible effort in this job. It was nice to meet a newly-wed couple. Hope your days be happy.

“ A Great Time With Namie! ”

Namie was a terrific guide and I can recommend her without reservation. She knew Tokyo very well and showed us all the sights we desired. She responded to our inquiries promptly and professionally. When I return to Tokyo, you can be sure I will contact Namie again to see some more sights.

NAMIE:

Thank you for the review, Jim. I am very happy to show you around Tokyo as second visit. It was such a nice talking about any kind of music, which you are working through. If any chance, I would surely take you to a karaoke house for Japanese soul music and Kabuki show. Thank you again for your treat on lunch! (^_^)

“ She is more than a guide, she is great! ”

I am a professional tour guide from Turkey and I bring groups to Japan every April. This year I met Namie and I booked her to guide us in Tokyo. She did a great job and co-operation with me. She arranged itinerary, restaurants, parking lots and everything for us and me and my group were extremely satisfied with her service. If you book her, you never regret. I will work with her every April when I come back.

NAMIE:

Hello. Thank you for the wonderful message. I learned how to manage a big group tour thanks to your assistance. It surely was a fruitful experience as a guide and a good memory of co-working with you. See you again next year!

“ Excellent Fiday night time tour with teenager ”

Namie is a wonderfull guide. We had a 4 hour tour as of 18:00 through Tokyo with our 13 year old son. Namie communicated very well ahead of the tour and picked us up at the agreed time at our hotel. We had a wonderful time and Namie helped us to naivagte through town like a local. Thanks a lot to Namie! It is a true delight to have Namie as your guide.

NAMIE:

Thank you for your comment. I am truly lucky to meet kind and friendly family like you. It was "night Shinjuku" and we walked so long, but the beer after that was really refreshing. Thank you again for your treat at the restaurant. Enjoy the last day Tokyo today.

I am a mother of 2 daughters, so hopefully I could finish the tour by 6pm. If you could give me a contact relatively earlier, I try to arrange my house chores and make night attend possible. Thank you.
