I requested our tour to be kid-friendly. I wanted our tour to be as relaxed and kid-friendly as possible and Ms Atsuko made it possible. She’s very nice and really informative about the tour. She adjusted her plans to our liking and comfort. My kids absolutely love her. We appreciate all the effort and kindness. Thank you so much!
Thank you for taking time to write me such a great review Soraya! Taking 2 small children to travel abroad is not easy however you and your hasband have stamina and possitive mind. I had a really good time with your family. Your children are adorable. Please have a wonderful time and enjoy your stay in Japan.
We had 2 wonderful days with Atsuko We really never could have navigated the subway system and we were able to see so much with her She was so sweet and adaptable We would highly recommend
Thank you for taking time to write me such a wonderful review Pamela and Jeff! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and I had a great time with you. Did you enjoy Kyoto and Osaka? Please have a good time rest of your stay in Japan!
Our time with Atsuko was so incredible we were sad to say goodbye . With her gentle way we breezed through Tokyo covering the important sights and got a real sense of the culture, people and place. 20,000 steps a day countless subway rides her 9 to 3 pm schedule was enough to enable us an incredible Tokyo experience. Nothing was too much trouble everything done with a smile and complete flexibility. We enjoyed our lunches together and swapping travel family stories. Thank You Atsuko !!!! Wemade a friend in Tokyo.
