Eriko was a great guide at Hakone, we were luck by the beautiful day and got to enjoy a lot Eriko’s tour. She was kind and took us to special places. Thanks Eriko!
Thank you so much, Daniel, for a great review. Yes, we did enjoy everything on a perfect day. That's one of my best tour days in Hakone. I hope my tour becomes a good memory of your stay in Japan. Eriko
Our group of four were treated to a wonderful day in Tokyo with Eriko. Eriko has great English skills and her genuine interest in the city really made our day. We will be back next year with a bigger group and we will definitely book Erico. Thank you so much Erico you were awesome.
Thank you very much for a great review! You are a group of humorous people, so I myself enjoyed the tour and being with you. It’s a nice memory and I really hope to see you again next autumn. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Hurrah! All Black!!!
ERIKO made our 1 day Tokyo tour THE highlight of our Japan trip. She planned out the day efficiently with the sites we wanted to see, using different modes of transportation, as well as added her own touches to make it a special day. We were meeting 2 Japanese friends, that we haven't seen for 40 years.... She communicated well with all of us, and was an active part of the conversation and activities of the day. She had great visual aids. And selected a perfect lunch venue to eat Japanese pancake. The only way to describe our day was WONDERFUL!! We would definitely recommend ERIKO. AND we would definitely hire her again if we get back to Tokyo. The Morton's from Nebraska, USA
