We are so grateful for two amazing days in Tokyo. We saw SO MUCH that we could not have managed by ourselves especially with the complicated subways! Yuki took us to so amazing spots that we could not have known about or seen so quickly in two days.
Dear Debbie, Thank you for taking my tour. I am very happy if you enjoyed it. Please give my best regards to Dave, too. Yuki
An awesome day in Kyoto followed by some Tokyo highlights .. Yuki was an awesome guide - very knowledgeable, knew the best restaurants, public transport system, Japanese history and culture .. we enjoyed an awesome 2 days with him :) Thanks !
Dear Andrew, Thank you for taking my tours. I was very much upset when I found that we were waiting at different places. But we met just before the departure of the Shinkansen and saw Mt. Fuji from the window of the train. We delayed for the tea ceremony in Kyoto, but you made it through and arrived Kinkaku-Ji temple before the sun set. It was a memorable tour for me, too. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki
We had an excellent day with Yuki. He was very well organised and prepared a very nice full day itinerary for our family. He organised Passmo travel passes for us all and navigated us around the Tokyo metro and rail network with ease. We visited Meiji Shrine, Imperial Palace Gardens and Senso-Ji temple. As a special treat for our girls (8 and 10 yo) he took us to a Owl cafe where we could have a hot coffee and the girls could get up close to owls, lizards, meerkats, chinchillas, hedgehogs and other animals. We also went to a Udon noodle restaurant for lunch - once again an excellent choice from Yuki. We had a great day and learned a lot at the same time as Yuki was very knowledgeable on everywhere we visited. Thank you Yuki - we really enjoyed our time with you today.
Dear John, Thank you for taking my tour of Tokyo. Everything went well and I was very happy to see you enjoy the places I took you. Please have a nice vocation in Japan. Yuki
Yukie was an awesome guide taking us to Hakone from our Hotel in Tokyo. He was smart and very personal. I would highly recommend Yuki!
Dear Lori, Thank you for taking my tour. I am very happy that you have enjoyed my Hakone tour. Best regards, Yuki
The weather was unpredictable but we would, as a result, have appreciated the guide to have been more flexible and client responsive. Information lacking on geology of the region, artists and architect of the Picasso museum. I have no doubt the guide will be of more value for a city tour!
Dear Karin, Thank you for taking my tour. I did my best to make the tour enjoyable for all of you, but it did not work on the day in Hakone. Best regards, Yuki
