We spent a wonderful 7.5 hours with our lovely local guide Yukiko. She met us at our hotel and guided us through the day to the places of interest that we had requested but had no idea how to get to under our own steam. She helped us navigate the Tokyo train system with ease and was a fountain of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble. She also went out of her way to locate two stores that would provide the items that I had been looking for but couldn’t find myself. Yukiko made us feel very comfortable and I would highly recommend Yukiko to anyone.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It encouraged me a lot and made me happy. I like flower arrangement as well. I was born and raised in Tokyo, there are still so many places I would like to show you. I always welcome and looking forward to meeting you in the future again!
Yukiko is an experienced, knowledgeable and friendly guide. She created an itinerary that was perfect for our family making our first two days in Tokyo fun and unique! She took us through some of the lesser known neighborhoods in Tokyo proper allowing us to escape the tourist traps and enjoy the local gems. We wouldn’t have been able to see and eat as much without Yukiko. Thank you Yukiko for making our time wi th you so special!
Thank you so much for your warm words! I'm always encouraged by such a review from my guest and remember our enjoyable time in the tour. Hope you will enjoy to try new foods using your five senses and bring back many good memories to share with your family and friends! Have a fun!!
Yukiko took very good care of my family during our recent visit to Tokyo. She communicated before, during and after our day together very easily and quickly. It was very easy to meet up with her and she was very attentive to detail in all of her preparations for our time together and with all members of our family, even my younger daughter who was having a rough day. She was caring, informative, fun and really very pleasant to spend the day with. I highly recommend her for any adults and kids that want to get out and learn more about Tokyo!
Many thanks for your kind review! It was a memorable day for me as well. Receiving feedback about the tour is one of my happiest moments. Whenever you see what you made, I hope you will remember this trip. Thank you once again, Domo Arigato!
What an amazing day we had with Yukiko! Even though it was quite rainy, Yukiko made sure we were able to visit all the places we had planned and even more! The itinerary she had for us maximizes every single hour we had in the day; she was able to even add on more stops per our request to truly make this tour unique and personalized. We felt like we had a local friend for the day as opposed to a business-oriented guide. Next time we're back in Japan, we would definitely seek out Yukiko again for more tours in and around Tokyo! Thank you for the amazing day and we can't wait to visit again!
Thank you for your kind review, Sophie! We did so many things in one day and it's definitely unique and personalized. It was an enjoyable time for me as well. I always welcome you and look forward to meeting you all again in the future!
