Tokyo Tour Reviews

Shinjuku to Mt Fuji

Yuka arrived early at our hotel to take us to subway station for Shinjuku. There was a little bit of confusion regarding getting the reserved tickets for the limited express train to Mt. Fuji. But all was resolved quickly by Yuka. Upon boarding the train, we were lucky to enjoy the reserved seating as the aisle was packed with standing passengers. One thing is that Japan Rail should consider increase number of carriages for this popular route as the feeling on the train was not good. It was completely different with the coach ride returning to Shinjuku. It was comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Yuka for arranging the itinerary as we get to experience Mt Fuji at its splendour.

R L.

Thank you so much yesterday, Raymond. I understand you worked hard as a leader though you are friends and all very kind. The train was super crowded. I was surprised and uncomfortable too. I'll make this tour better with your suggestions.

Wonderful day exploring the beautiful Tokyo

Exploring Tokyo with Yuka was a good experience. She met us on time in the hotel, bought subway passes for us and guided us to all the places on the itinerary. She is a professional, courteous and experienced guide. Will be hiring her for our next visit to Tokyo.

Zehra  W.

Thank you for your good comments, Zehra. It was really nice meeting you, your husband and beautiful daughters and son. I'm looking forward to seeing you.

College educated hard working English and French speaking Professional Guide

My son and I. retained her to take us from Yokohama for an overnight trip to Hiroshima. Totally prepared, well informed and fully fluent in English. I will use her again and give her 5 starts. She even walked in the rain and upnsteep mountainsides to educate us on matters we asked of her without hesitation. First class.

Ernie A.

Thank you for the nice comments for the trip to Hiroshima. One day was too short and so we planned a two-day trip. I am happy to have guided you. Good to visit Itsukushima Shrine on the second day.
