Tokyo Tour Reviews

A Great Birthday with the Best Guide

Shinya definitely made this a day to remember. He helped us navigate the bullet train ticket process and the many means of transportation that we took. I really enjoyed all the variety! We saw so much beautiful scenery and the only disappointment was there was cloud cover over Mt Fuji. The rest of the area had the sun! He added neat extra touches throughout the day and provided an umbrella for the short shower that we did have and was very aware of the best route to take so I could limit the strain on my knees. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Shinya as your guide. You will completely enjoy and learn new things about Japan!

Gretchen F.

Hi Gretchen, Thank you so much for your nice review. I appreciate it. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. I also enjoyed talking with you and your friend, Julie very much. I hope you will stay in Japan longer next time, then I am looking forward to seeing you and Julie again in Japan! Shinya

Great Day with Shinya

Shinya met us at our hotel for an 8hr tour. He is so polite and explained our itinerary right away. We saw many important highlights of Tokyo and he made sure we saw what we were interested in most. He planned the itinerary so we had some free time to shop. The lunch spot he chose was excellent and very reasonably priced. Shinya is a good historian and gives educational insight at each stop. Highly recommend using Shinya for a day tour or even longer.

Amazing Experience with Shiny

Took a customized tour with Shinya which included the imperial palace, senjoi temple (during the festival)and Akihabara. Shinya was incredibly organized and knowledgeable, answering every question that was asked (and we had a lot) and was incredibly attuned to all of needs. He showed incredible flexibility as the plan was changed mid way especially in Akihabara where everyone was expressing different interest. Would highly highly recommend...
