“ Dedicated, organized and communicative -- in short simply excellent. ”

Jolly is a dedicated guide which plans and communicates her itineraries above and beyond what is expected. Her command of English is superb. She'll strive to understand your interests and priorities then make detailed plans to make the most of your time. In addition, she also laid out best ways to get around the city before and after the tour to ensure that we are taken care of beyond the scope of the tour. Our day with Jolly was beset by heavy rains and she always had alternate plans ready. Rain or shine, you are going to have a fantastic time with Jolly.


Hello! Thank you for taking your time to write such a sweet review! I feel so happy to hear from you. Although the weather was not so good...I have to admit we had sooooaking rains..., still I enjoyed the tour so much because I was with you; a wonderful family! All of you are so polite, kind, gentle and cheerful! And how adorable your child was! I was also impressed by your abundant knowledge about Japanese history and language as well. Thanks to rain, we saw beautifully-washed green in the Imperial East garden... Again thank you so much for finding me out and share your time with me! Warm regards, Jolly
