Thank you so much for the review for me, Kevin! We met at your hotel and visited some highlight spots in Tokyo, such as Meiji Jingu shrine, Takeshita shopping street, Cat street, and Shibuya crossing before going to Makuhari messe.

Very Accommodating

Ms Maru helped us with a last minute tour and was very accommodating and she was very knowledgeable with Tokyo. She spoke very good English and was able to do last minute tour requests. I would use her again and recommend her for future tours.

Maru K.

Mr. Noel, thank you so much for the glowing review for me! It was magical lucky of having an opportunity to meet you! Both you and Sandi were very kind and always giving me heartwarming smiles, so I was comfortable during the tour. Thank you so much. We visited THE GUNDAM BASE TOKYO at Daiba, enjoyed shopping at Ameyoko street, and crossed Shibuya intersection. Yes, please come back to Japan again by the special flight! Maru

Great day in Tokyo with Maru!

My girlfriend and I spent today with Maru and we could not have had a better time. When we booked she reached out to ask what we wanted to do. I have some very vague instructions about wanting to see a place where locals live and a couple of other vague requests. She took us to places that were exactly what we were hoping for. Beyond that she is a lovely person who is fun to spend time with - it was like we had known her already. It was just easy to be with her. I recommend her very highly!

Maru K.

Dear David, thank you so much for such a quick review! I am still on my way back home. Thank you for taking the tour with me today. I also enjoyed with you a lot! We walked Yanaka area, enjoyed lunch at Kagurazaka, explored vintage clothing stores at Harajuku, and crossed the busiest intersection at Shibuya. We walked a lot in hot weather, please take a good rest. Lets keep in touch! Maru

Day Guide for Large Group

We had a large group including older parents and young children. Maru from the very beginning was so easy to communicate with. She exudes excitement and enthusiasm and was so willing to accommodate and modify our tour to whatever we needed. She was very friendly and her English was easy to communicate with. We felt like were hanging out with a true local. We did have a small hiccup with the driver I had arranged myself, but Maru was able to smooth everything out. We truly enjoyed our tour with Maru and hope that you do not hesitate to book her! You will not regret it!

Maru K.

Thank you, Gerald! It was a pleasure spending the day with you all. Thank you so much for your warm words, for choosing me as your tour guide and being such a fun group! We enjoyed talking about Japan a lot, such as local donut restaurants, amusement facilities.. I was vey impressed by your serching skill because you had organized your family trip very well. I Hope you enjoyed the whole of Japan. There are so much more to see and do in Japan. I hope you will come again, and I can be a part of your next visit. Best wishes, Maru

Tokyo Up-to-You Tour

8 hours

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see. We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests. (The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.) Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.
