We loved our tour with Koba
Alicia_M, May 2023
Our whole experience with Koba was fantastic from start to finish. He reached out to me shortly after we signed up with the tour to discuss the days plan, met us at our hotel, and guided us to some really unique and special locations in Tokyo. He was thorough, well informed, patient, and has everything you need (from wet wipes, to chopsticks to maps). He taught us local customs and about the history of the places we visited. We really enjoyed meeting him and spending our afternoon together.

Thank you very much for your positive review! I also enjoyed guiding you and your husband. Although we arrived at Tsukiji a little late, I was relieved to know that you enjoyed the food experience there. I was also happy to see you shopping for several daily use items at Yanaka Ginza. I’m convinced that you both enjoyed the Tokyo afternoon. Please do come back to Tokyo again, and I would be happy to guide you again in the future! Koba

We were very excited for this tour. Our tour guide never showed up and for a full 1 hour, I tried to call him with no success and messaged the tour provider for a full hour with NO RESPONSE. 3 hours later, someone contacted me with an unbelievable story about why the tour guide couldn’t make it. We were left standing around for 1 full hour outside our hotel with NO HELP at all. NEVER WILL I RECOMMEND this trip to anyone !!!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
We appreciate for choosing our experience and taking your time to leave us the honest feedback. As we have told you, your guide had an accident and could not make it to the meeting place. We have attempted to call you, but it does not work. Your refund process have already been done as you already know. We are so sorry that you could not enjoy the tour. We are constantly striving to further improve our service and apologize for not being able to provide you with an experience you expected this time. We look forward to your next visit to Japan in the near future. Kind regards, Mika Japan Guide Agency
