Sammy was a great guide with great knowledge of the area. He spoke fluent english and was happy to answer any of our questions. Would highly recommend.
Nobuyuki was excellent. We had a strange schedule due to marathon runners in our group and he was extremely flexible with our changing plans. He met us at the hotel and guided us expertly through Tokyo. He introduced us to Japanese dumplings and ramen. He was patient with our frequent photo stops and helped us make the most of our first day in Tokyo. If you need a guide and Nobuyuki is available, I would highly recommend him.
Sammy was a great guide. Knowledgeable and very nice. There wasn't enough time to cover everything there was to see.
