Perfect day in adventure for a family group of all ages

Michiko was an absolute star with a family group including teenagers and younger children. We experienced things that we should and small moments of delight for the younger ones arrived at just the right time. Our metro 101 with her sufficient for us to then take on by ourselves for the next two days. We were thrilled to have spent our day with Michiko and would highly recommend her. Airlie

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see. We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests. (The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.) Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.
