Tour indispensable

Tokyo es una ciudad encantadora, de los mejores lugares que hemos visitado en el mundo, la gente, la cultura, el lugar, Toshi no fue la excepción. Agendamos con anticipación para poder conocer los lugares más importantes de la ciudad. El metro es muy complicado por lo que que mejor que conocer Tokyo con un guía que los lleve a cada punto y así aprovechar al máximo la visita.

Thank you for the nice tour review by Spanish, Josefina-san. For me, you are the first tourists from Guatemala. I enjoyed conversation with you sometimes by Spanish, which I studied a little bit many years ago. You kindly instucted me in the difference between English and Spanish. Your family is excellent, it was my happy moment when I guided you in the city of Tokyo. You had already visited various countries. I appreciate your comments as Tokyo is the one of the most attractive city in the world. I recommend you will come to Japan again to see beautiful cherry blossoms.

Informative, insightful and fun.

Toshi gave us an amazing insight into a number of key landmarks and related them back to Japanese culture and history. We are a family of 4, with 2 teenage children. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day with Toshi and highly recommend him as a guide. We enjoyed our day so much, we have booked him for another tour. Thanks Toshi.

Toshihiro Y.

Thank you for the wonderful tour review, Julia-san. Tour was done at the end of the year. I needed to change the itinerary and the place to eat lunch. You kindly accepted these changes. You have a lot of knowledge about current events of the world. Sometimes I couldn't understand well about your questions, but you explained the essence of the questions carefully. It was helpful for me to increase my knowledge as a tour guide. Thank you again, Julia-san.

Excellent Tour

Toshihiro was very knowledgable and gave my family a wonderful overview of Tokyo. We saw so much in our one day with him. Super easy to take the subway with him - and he had great local insights. Highly recommend.

Toshihiro Y.

Thank you for the nice and quick tour review, Karen-san. It was only a few hours ago that I dropped you off at your hotel. I was amazed by your speed. During the tour, I felt comfortable with a friendly atmosphere from your family. It was a honor to guide you various spots in Tokyo. From tomorrow, you will go to other places in Japan. Please enjoy!!

Excellent guide with broad knowledge of Tokyo and Japan

My wife NJ and I had a full day tour with Toshihiro. He was wonderful! I'm vegetarian which is difficult in Japan and he found a wonderful Buddhist restaurant which could accommodate my dietary restrictions. He also answered all of my overly detailed questions about Japan with lots of patience. :) Highly recommend - would absolutely work with him again. -S

Toshihiro Y.

Thank you for the excellent tour review, Saumil-san. Before the tour, you gave me information about your dietary restrictions. It was easy to find an appropriate restraunt. I am relieved to hear that you enjoyed Buddhist style vegetarian food. I was impressed as you have a lot of knowledge about Japanese culture and history. You are misunderstanding. I didn't need any patience to answer your questions. I really enjoyed conversation with you. I hope that you will come to Japan again. I recommend cherry blossom season.
