Very disappointing tour of Tokyo by van

この度のvan での東京のツアーは大変失望しました。私は11月12日にツアーを予約して居ます。孫達に日本を紹介したいと家族10人の旅で大変期待して居ました。 運転手不足は解りますが県外に住みスク-ル バスの運転手さんで春休みの副業の方。只町をぐるぐる回るだけで写真を撮る機会もなく東京の街も余りご存じ無い。こんな事なら自分たちで回るか鳩バスで行ったほうがずっと良かったと思います。駐車料金色々含めて10万円以上払ったのにその価値無し。運転手さんは感じの良い方でしたので2starでしたがツアー自体は1star。娘達も大変失望。I would like to ask for some money back. So many of my friends are visiting Japan this year. They want my feedback and recommendations. I was going to recommend your company but sadly I won’t be able to if that is your standard of the tour.

We are very sorry that we did not meet your expectations, as our main driver Miya was out of town. If you would visit Japan again future, we hope that you have a chance to enjoy with our main driver Miya.

Not what we expected

The guide was very jolly but spoke very little English. It was somewhat frustrating that he kept repeating things in Japanese and we could not communicate. Our biggest complaint however was that he would drop us off in an alley and tell us to walk in Japanese. He never would drop us off at the site or in front of the site. Since we could not understand Japanese, it was difficult for us to just go in a pointed direction. We are all seniors so walking 4 blocks to our intended site was not always easy. Please note we have used guides in all our many travels. This was just too frustrating since we were not able to communicate our needs and he was not able to tell us why he was dropping us 4 blocks away.

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy fully. If you would have a guide with you it would have been close to your expectations. Our driver always try to drop off/ pick up guests at safest places. Please understand that in Japan the road tend to be narrow, and parking laws are and it is difficult to park the bigger car, so there may be a chance to park our car at places a few blocks away from desired destinations. Our driver cannot speak English fluently but we always treat our guest with full Japanese heart and try to do our best to keep the guests safety. It would be our pleasure if you could bring our Japanese hospitality back with you.
