Tokyo Tour Reviews

2 Days in Tokyo with Nao

Our family spent 2 days touring Tokyo with Nao, and they were terrific! We worked with Nao before our trip to customize our two days in Tokyo. Nao provided suggestions, organized the itinerary, made reservations for us at great restaurants to have lunch at both days, and guided us through the subway system to each of the spots on our tour. Along the way, Nao provided great information at each tour spot and engaged terrifically with our 15-year-old daughter throughout our 2 days together. I would highly recommend Nao to anyone looking to book a tour of Tokyo!

Michelle T.

Dear Michelle san Thank you so much for your comment on my tour. I could make good memory of travelling with you in Tokyo. I had very pleasant time with your family. Please give my best regards to Brian and Sydney. Nao

Tokyo Day two

Nao, Was an absolute gentleman, was the oldest guide we used in Japan but such a wealth of knowledge and as I said such a gentleman. Definitely knew his way around but at the same time negotiated the most efficient way to travel without the traditional crowds you would expect in Tokyo. We definitely regret not being able to say a proper goodby to Nao San due to having to catch our next train to Kanazawa.

Phillip C.

Dear Phillip san Thank you very much for your comment on my guiding in Tokyo. I wanted to spend more time with you traveling in Tokyo, but I enjoyed traveling with you very much. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Nao

I will recomend Mr. Nao to my friends

Two families - a group of 10 had an incredible time in Tokyo with Mr. Nao as our guide. His calm demeanor and deep knowledge of Tokyo made our experience relaxed and enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Algirdas B.

Dear Algirdas san Thank you for your comment about my tour. I enjoyed travelling with your group very much and realized what a nice country Lithuania is. If I have a chance to visit Europe in the future, I want to include Lithuania on the list of "must visit" list. Please give my best regards to all members of your group and thank them for cooperating with me to conduct the tour smoothly. Nao
