Fun and flexible tour

Ai was great! She met us at our hotel in Shinjuku. We really packed a lot in during our 7 hours with her. She did had an itinerary but was flexible about changing this. We went to a pet cafe, Meiji Jingu shrine, Shibuya crossing, etc. She taught us how to use the subway system as well. We had lunch at her favorite Shabushabu restaurant which was excellent. I would highly recommend her as a guide.

It was my great pleasure to show you around! I'm honored to spend with your amazing family together as your guide. Have fun with the rest of your trip! Ai

Go with Ai !

If you want to get a glimpse of Tokyo through the eyes of a young local- go with Ai. Highly recommend- she was very accommodating and flexible with our requests. She found the best sights for us to see during our tour, and recommended shops according to our tastes. Ai was knowledgeable but not overbearing. Go with Ai !

Amazing experience exploring Shinjuku nightlife.

Ai was very kind, knowledgeable and friendly. She met us near Shinjuku and guided us through the busy streets, showing off the various sky scrapers and some of their history. We visited a lot of the locale, including shrines, back alley restaurants and bars, and ended the night with a beautiful scenic view of the city from the Government building. It was very fun exchanging stories and she has the answer to many of our questions. Highly recommend!

Zoltan, it was my great pleasure to show you around. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the places we went together! You were really amazing guests and I would love to guide you again if you are every back in Tokyo! Have fun with the rest of your stay in Japan :) Ai
