    First time in Tokyo
    Hashim_K, Sept 2023
    My tour guide Takanari took me around Tokyo, we went to Harajuku, Shibuya and Ginza!it was a great experience because I got to learn the old history by visiting Meiji Jingu shrine and the surrounding forest. also, learned about the modern world by visiting shibuya. Takanari had a lot of knowledge to share and he was able to answer all of my questions.

    I had an excellent time with Taka who was my tour guide. He is very social, accommodating and knowledgeable of the areas we toured. I highly recommend Taka if you are visiting and interested in touring various regions in Japan.

    Simple, easy and stress free tour
    Jessica_B, Sept 2023
    Taka was a fantastic guide. He was very accommodating of our requests and went out if his way to ensure we had an enjoyable day. He was very easy to contact before the tour and making arrangements was simple. We had a large group and Taka made it easy to navigate the Japanese train stations and busy tourist spots. Thanks for a great day 😊
    Perfect intro to tokyo

    We went from Haneda airport to Shibuya Crossing. Ate, tools some pics, saw some stores and back to the airport. Good for a layover. You can’t get far but my expectations weren’t that high either.
    Great introduction to Tokyo
    Lynne_A, Sept 2023
    Claire was very accommodating, explained the metro system and took us to the areas we wanted to go. A great way to be introduced to the city.
    Great service

    Rei was great! She did exactly what was requested. She is very professional and human! She even prepared a surprise at lunch time for our daughter’s birthday!
    Great walking tour through Tokyo
    Rachael_M, Sept 2023
    Claire was a wonderful tour guide who showed us so much in Tokyo! I would highly recommend. We walked all through Shibuya, Harajuku, and Shinjuku. We also saw the Meiji Jingu shrine. There was so much to see and explore!
    Albert took us to points...
    Margaret_S, Sept 2023
    Albert took us to points of interest to us after picking up from our hotel, guided us on public transport, very helpful and friendly guide on our four hour tour.
    It's worth every penny
    Eric_M, Sept 2023
    He was fantastic, helped us get around the train system and whatever else we needed. The day would have been a lot different without him and not for the better. Thank you.

    Hannah_G, Aug 2023
    Our guide Taka was lovely! It was so nice to go around with a local and hear about the history of Tokyo! Definitely worth booking! We would love to host Taka for a tour of our own if he ever decided to come to the UK!
    Fabulous day in Tokyo
    Vicki_G, Aug 2023
    We had a wonderful day with Rey exploring Tokyo! Rey was the perfect guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our sushi lunch as well. We would highly recommend this tour.
    Terrible substandard experience
    Stephan_D, Aug 2023
    The guide did not only speak little English but she really did not have much to share with us. She was a very substandard guide who barely knew the area - one of the most visited in Tokyo. We made the tour work but only by using her as a shopping consultant. Event then it was hard to get her to help us communicate with the shop assistants as she constantly got distracted by random strangers. A very low quality experience and not worth the money we paid for.
    Sleeping guide
    Michal_K, Aug 2023
    Tour guide was tired and twice asleep in underground… Do not show us imperial garden. Not very nice experience.
    Indispensable guide for this large and complex city.
    Rob_C, Aug 2023
    We all very much enjoyed our tour of Tokyo with Albert, a knowledgeable, friendly and interesting guide. He continued to support us during the rest of our stay when we had any questions via WhatsApp. Highly recommended for short days in this very large and complex city!
