This was my first trip to Tokyo. I booked 4 hours with Yukiko and it was great! She is very friendly and helpful. She helped me buy a Suica card and explained how to use the metro. We went to Asakusa and Ginza. Yukiko had lots of information to share and even helped me with my shopping! I would book her again and highly recommend her.

Thank you for your warm and prompt review, Nonito! We visited all must-see spots in Tokyo in one day. It combines traditional and modern such as beautiful garden, Palace, temple and market. There are many other nice spots in Tokyo and outside of the city. I'd like to introduce you such places for the next time. Thank you once again and have a safe flight back to your country. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
Our full-day tour of Tokyo with Yukiko was amazing. She is punctual, charming, knowledgeable, incredibly well-organised and her English is excellent. She had informative folders for each location and it was a pleasure to hear her talk about each landmark or area we were visiting. I had prompt and frequent contact with Yukiko immediately after inquiring about her services, and she was very flexible and helpful in suggesting and amending itineraries until it suited our requirements. Yukiko was also wonderful at engaging and interacting with our two young daughters (aged 6 and 11). They loved her origami lessons on the longer subway trips. She was able to organise lunch for us at an Okonamiyaki restaurant in Asakusa, and with her recommendations we were able to enjoy this traditional Jap... read more
Thank you for your heartfelt review, Des! I really appreciated it. The day was your last day of your entire trip and also it was the only day that you could spend in central Tokyo, so I wanted to make it a real pleasant one for you and your family. I'm glad that you enjoyed each place we visited and my interacting activities. I hope those experiences would broaden children's horizon and prompt their interests about Japan. I always welcome your next visit. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
Yukiko is a lovely guide. She took into consideration my interests, my wishes and my budget. She showed me around the places i said i was interested in as well as came up with amazing suggestions i would have not thought of. She made the tour enjoyable and full of information that i would have not been able to get otherwise. The pace of the tour was tailored to what i mentioned. Moreover, she is a lovely person and very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Maria! I appreciated it very much and pleased to hear that the tour was enjoyable and meaningful. Japan has many nice and beautiful traditional cultures which have been still alive. I think that the concept and ideas of these traditional cultures naturally influences on our thinking and attitudes. I also would like to learn more about your country's traditional cultures as well, especially the culture of tea. I hope you enjoy the rest of your days in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimshita!!
