This tour is special!!!!




excellent tour with a private guide. Good way to be acclimated to Tokyo. Should inform us that we need to pay transportation for the guide however.




This tour was excellent for a number of reasons. We were firstly really impressed with the Guide Ken San. He was enthusiastic, energetic and very knowledgeable. The care and attention he took, with me and my wife was fantastic. The tour had to be adjusted after we had already visited a number of places on the list but Ken provided perfect alternatives due to his intimate knowledge of the City. Fantastic tour locations that were expertly detailed and had first class delivery by our charming guide. Thanks Ken, we loved our time together on the tour.




This tour was absolutely amazing! Ken was super friendly and knowledgeable. We went to the fish market first and it was such fun way to start our day. He knew tokyo inside and out and took us on beautiful routes to our next locations. Ken was the best tour guide and simply gave the best tour.
