Tour Important Information

It's a private tour only for you! That means you can change the itinerary freely & flexibly.

We'll use public transportation and walk a lot, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

I recommend you to have some Japanese cash. International credit cards are unavailable at ticket machines for trains and subways and at some small local shops.

If you are going to enjoy shopping, it would be better to take your passport with you because you can get tax-free by showing your passport under certain conditions.

[What to expect]

Tokyo is an exciting city with lots of nice spots. But it would be a bit difficult for first-time visitors to go to several places using the convenient but very complicated transportation system. You can count on me! I'll take you destinations efficiently while giving you information about each spot's background, history and Japanese culture, customs, traits, religions, art, everyday life and so on. Let's enjoy exploring Tokyo together!

Tokyo Tour Reviews

Jolly is great!

We had a really fantastic and fun day with Jolly in Tokyo. She is a very nice and extremely pleasant person, with a real sense of humor. Her English is great. We had booked another tour of the main sites (temples, museums, etc.), so we asked Jolly to really help us see the more fun and everyday side of Tokyo. She took us to a pachinko parlor, a cat cafe, the biggest electronic games arcade I have ever seen (or want to!), a bonsai store, two art galleries and a dealer in old swords, plus the old fish market. We had lunch at a great sushi place in one of the department stores. It was all just tremendous and great fun. I am sure Jolly can give a great tour of the traditional sites as well, but that was not what we ask her for. Highly recommended. Kent and Luca

Kent K.

Oh! Kent and Luca!! Thank you so much for your heearfelt review. You're so sweet. I really like to share our usual life with my guests and I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. After your tour, I bought a small bonsai at the bonsai shop, and the cheff at the sushi bar was so skillful and friendly...The tour with you two is quite a nice memory for me, as well! Thank you again for taking time to write this warm review. Take care!! Jolly

Amazing day with Jolly!

I cannot recommend Jolly highly enough. She was not only knowledgeable and fun to explore Tokyo with, she was also extremely flexible and willing to adapt the tour to our own interests. We had already been to one of the spots she was going to take us so on the fly, she suggested another neighbourhood we might enjoy. This proved to be one of our favourite parts of visit to Tokyo so far. I highly recommend Jolly as a guide. You won’t be sorry.

David H.

Oh! Thank you so much for your heartfelt words. I was so surprised because you kindly wrote this warm review so quickly (I’m still on my way home). I’m glad you seem to have enjoyed this tour. I’d like to thank you for finding me as your guide and sharing your precious time with me. I’m the happiest guide to have such friendly and thoughtful guests. Thank you for your kindness again and keep enjoying your pleasant journey!! Jolly
