Nobu was wonderful. He accepted our last minute booking and met us at our hotel at 10am. A lot of things where closed, but Nobu had a great iteneriary for us. He spoke great english and did a great job of explaining the local culture and history.
Thank you very much for your review, Nathan. I am pleased to know that you enjoyed your first day in Tokyo. Since there are many other attractive things in Tokyo, please visit those places during your stay. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Hoping to meet you again for next time! Nobu
It was an exciting and interesting visit to Mount Fuji. With a family of 5, we were lucky to see clear blue sky with Mount Fuji clearly visible. We started our day from Shin Okubu at 8.30am and arrived Lake Kawamuchigo at 9.45am. As we were early, there’s no queue and we managed to go for lake cruise without much waiting time. Thanks to Nobu San in planning such an agenda for us. He is definitely a patience, helpful and flexible to accommodate to changes in our plan. We enjoyed the trip to Mount Fuji very much and hope to return in another season for another new scenic experience.
Thank you very much for your review, Lee san. We were lucky enough to see beautiful Mt. Fuji all day and there were no traffic jam and long queue except return drive to Tokyo. I recommend you to visit there in April or May next time. You would enjoy beautiful moss phlox. You can also go up to the 5th Station. Thank you and have a nice stay in Japan. Nobu
It has been an excellent and wonderful experience with guide Nobu San as well as our friendly driver . Thank you for your patience in waiting for us always. Nobu is very knowledgeable and very humble . He takes care of all of us and keep a look out always. I count my blessings to have met such great guide and driver . Nobu keeps a watchful eye and makes sure I get back my correct change amount when I am buying something as well as telling me that it is not compulsory to buy the Mt Fuji photo shot if I don't want to and already had it in my phone ... I will definitely engage and contact Nobu again next time ...Merry Christmas guys . Thank you Nobu and take care ...??...
Thank you very much for your review, Eileen. I also enjoyed a pleasant time with you and your family. I am looking Forward to Guiding you again next time. Thank you again for spending your time with us. Nobu
Only had a few hours to try and get in a few sites in Tokyo while on a business trip with a client. Nobu was the perfect guide - making sure we were able to see several sites and spend the right amount of time at each. He knew his way around the city perfectly, providing sound advice on how best to go between locations. He provided us with the perfect amount of information about the places we visited. I am sure he could have given a lecture on each location, but Nobu was able to read his audience and provide exactly what we were looking for. I'd highly recommend a tour with Nobu. I will definitely use him again when I am back in town.
Thank you very much for your review, David. It is my pleasure to know that you were satisfied with my tour. We could only visit 3 places in a limited time, but there are a lot of attractive places in Tokyo. I do hope to guide you in such places when you come back to Tokyo. Nobu
