Tokyo Tour Reviews

Amazing Tour With Yoshi!

My wife and I booked a tour with Yoshi, and it was amazing. We really wanted a guide with a lot of historical knowledge. Yoshi took us all around Tokyo, and was great in explaining the history behind the different ruling powers during specific periods of Japan's past. He also provided a lot of context behind the various temples and shrines we visited, as well. Not only did Yoshi show us the historical and religious sites, but he took us to various markets, places of interest, and shopping districts giving us a taste of modern Tokyo, as well. He was great in giving us additional recommendations for our stay. If you want an awesome, in-depth, historical tour of Tokyo, I would highly recommend Yoshi. I hope we get to book a tour with him in the future. Thanks for everything, Yoshi!

Yoshi gave us the REAL Tokyo experience

We were so lucky to secure Yoshi san for two days in Tokyo. He was waiting for us at our hotel lobby each morning with wonderful plans for each day. He was well prepared with information notes so we learnt about Japanese history and could appreciate each place more fully. He was patient when we paused to shop for items and showed us personally his suggestions of best stores for items saving us time. He translated for us, ordered special meals and explained local cuisine specialties. We tried sashimi at old Tokyo fish market, mochi and Raman. Yoshi carefully personalised our tour to include each person's interests and it could not have been a more perfect introduction to beautiful Tokyo. He had some surprises for us like using a monorail to get home, and seeing retro Japanese arcades. We learnt correct etiquette at shrines, and Yoshi helped with getting my stamps which was so appreciated. We recommend Yoshi to anyone who wants to feel like a family member is greeting them and personally showing them the real Tokyo, with care and warmth from a very special guide. Thank you Yoshi san for taking such good care of us for two days.

Melissa S.

Hi Melissa, Thank you so much for your warm message. I also enjoyed being with you for two days. Please spend some more wonderful days on cruising. Thank you again. Look forward to seeing you. Yoshi

Enjoyable tour of Tokyo in the rain

We had a thoroughly enjoyable tour of Tokyo wish Yoshi. Having arrived on an overnight flight and it pouring with rain in Tokyo, we didn't think we would enjoy the tour. Yoshi gave us a great experience and the rain actually made the tour more memorable. From helping us navigate the Tokyo metro system, picking a great spot for lunch and his knowledge and explanations of all the locations we visited, we didn't even notice the jet lag, we had a great day.
