Amazing Day in Tokyo

From the very beginning to the very end it was amazing. Great way to see the city and so knowledgeable! Wonderful insights into what you are seeing. She even helped me get sorted for my train excursion south showing me how to get around Tokyo station. Excellent English. Will definitely use her again!

Kahoko K.

Thank you very much for the kind review. It was so encouraging and gave me another motivation after a long blank under covid . I really enjoyed your company and learned a lot from European cities to Major league knowledge. I hope you a nice trip to Sasebo and a great time with your son. Happy Father's Day !

A wonderful, top notch guide. AAA++

Kahoko was flexible and adhusted our schedule for our desires. We had an excellent "sampler" Japanese dinner in a "hidden" restaurant and at a reasonable price. She has excellent English, sonething not always true with SE Asia guides. And Kahoko has a very friendly personality. Hire her - you can't go wrong.

Kahoko K.

Thank you very much for the sweetest review ! I had such a lovely time with two of you. I learned so many new things thanks to you. Still, you must be kind of tired after one month journey. I hope you a nice flight tomorrow, and relaxing cruise in March. Thank you again and take care !
