First class Guide Highly Recommend

My husband and I spent 2 days with Toshihiro San. We would never have seen what we did without him. His knowledge of the underground system is second to none and he was most considerate in making sure we were following him and getting us seats on the trains. He also has excellent knowledge of the city and we enjoyed his stories. Thank you for 2 wonderful days in Tokyo .

Irene P.

Thank you for the amazing tour review, Irene-san. The first day was a strong rainy day. We needed to change the itinerary. But you accepted my suggestion without any complaint. You were very cooperative. Thank you very much again. I enjoyed conversation with you, especially about the difference of royal family between your country and Japan. I know you are still in Japan for a few more days. Please enjoy the rest of the days in Japan.

An amazing educational and fun filled day!

After completing a 10 day cruise around Japan, we wanted to take the opportunity to visit Tokyo. With only a three day stay, we knew that the only way to make the most of our time was to seek out an experienced tour guide. As the title references, the tour was extremely efficient. We managed to pack in all the locations on the itinerary while exploring many of the popular shopping districts such as Ameyayokocho on the way. As you can imagine, there's always many, many people in the subways and at all of the popular destination points. Toshihiro-san was always looking back to make sure we were right behind him. The highlight of this trip was the cherry blossoms; so beautiful and so plentiful. We just happened to be in Tokyo at the right time. We also enjoyed a wonderful sushi lunch at the fish market suggested by Toshihiro-san. Such a wonderful and memorable day! We will certainly be back again. Thank you Toshihiro-san!

Thank you for the brilliant tour review, Linda-san. You had already experienced 10 days cruise around Japan, and you knew a lot of Japanese culture and life style. It was helpful that you told me which places you had already visited in Japan. You were cooperative, and it was easy for me to make a Tokyo tour for you. We mainly visited unique and conspicuous spots in Tokyo which are different from other sites in Japan. Fortunately, cherry blossoms were very beautiful during our Tokyo tour. We visited famous cherry blossoms viewing spots. I am sure that you came to Japan in the best season. And surprisingly, you know very much about Sushi. You have good skills of using a pair of chopsticks. I appreciate that you tried traditional Japanese sweets several times. I enjoyed walking with you. Thank you again. I guess that you are leaving Japan soon. I hope that you come to Japan again in the near future.

Tokyo experience

Toshihiro was an incredible guide. His tour has been the highlight of our trip to Japan. His knowledge was amazing and his English excellent. This was the first time we have used “go with guide” but will not be the last, already recommended to friends and they had the same great experience.

Adrian B.

Thank you for the outstanding tour review, Adrian-san. You were very friendly group. I could guide you with a comfortable atmosphere. I am impressed with attached photos of our happy moments in the tour. Thank you again as you introduced me to your friends. I also enjoyed guiding your friends. I am lucky as you chose me as your guide. Please come to Japan again in the near future.
