I booked a two-person virtual live tour experience of Asakusa with Yukiko for my friend's birthday and she was the most informative, accommodating tour guide I've ever had. Yukiko not only helped us plan a 90 minute virtual tour with almost all the places on our interest list (which was a LOT), but fully embraced each suggestion by showing us countless photos and providing history and fun facts about each location. She did a wonderful job at getting my friend and I involved in her tour by asking us questions and answering ours- even though it was virtual, it really felt like we were there and interacting with the surroundings like we would be in person. After our tour, Yukiko provided us a list of the restaurants and shops we visited during the tour so that we'll be able to go there once we visit Tokyo in person. Yukiko gave us a true travel experience over Zoom and if you're looking for the perfect Tokyo tour guide, look no further! She will make sure your trip is perfect.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Ali!! I am so happy to hear that both of you had an enjoyable time and we could covered all the places on your interest list. Luckily, we had a very beautiful weather and we encountered some auspicious events at shrine. Like you said, real-time viewing brings that really feel like you were in Asakusa. I hope the list of useful information and photos will useful for your future trip. Thank you once again for taking my tour for your friend's birthday! Domo Arigatou!!
Yuki created a one hour, live, virtual walking tour. This was not our team's first attempt at this with other companies, but this was by far the best. Yuki's communication started this adventure off on the right foot. Not only was she communicative, but she also was flexible when I booked the wrong date by accident. She was clear with what she needed from me for this to be successful (a zoom link) and she took care of the rest. Her AV was so clear and how she interacted with us was so interactive, fun, and informative. She used cue cards with photos, offered trivia, answered our live questions in chat and over the call. Our team was enamored with her and her style. She was fun and clearly new her stuff, but it didn't feel scripted or rehearsed. She was a gem and we have already referred her to other members of our organization. Absolutely would book her again and when we are able to actually travel to Tokyo, I'll be seeing if she would be willing to be our personal tour guide. Thank you for everything, Yuki!
Wow!! Thank you so much for your excellent review, Jill! I can't find a better word to express my gratitude. I also enjoyed to communicate with your team members during the session and glad to show you around in Asakusa as much as possible. My another virtual experience will visit Akihabara and put emphasis on more modern culture, this time such as Japanese animation. If you have a chance to join, I would be happy to guide. Of course, I always welcome all of you when you're able to travel to Tokyo in the future! Domo Arigatou!!
Excellent visit of Akihabara. Do not hesitate to book your visit with Yukiko.
Thank you for joining a live virtual walking tour in Tokyo! I am pleased to hear that your review. There are many places that have different atmosphere and characteristics in Tokyo, I hope you will have another chance to join other virtual tour in the future. Please stay safe, Domo Arigatou gozaimashita!!
What a great experience learning about and experiencing Tokyo. I have taken virtual tours before and depending on the group it could get quiet. Not with Yuki, she came prepared with facts, questions and different ways to engage the group. I cannot say enough positive things about Yuki and her tour, trust me you will love it!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Chris! I'm so happy to hear that. I appreciate that I can do something for my guests even under this difficult situation. I think it is meaningful to see a real time viewing, what's going on over there now and communicate interactively. I'm always welcome you on Zoom and in Japan! Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
