Miya has been an amazing tour guide, going well beyond my expectations. Before my arrival in Japan she provided me with invaluable guidance on the best area where to stay in Tokyo and she even helped me to find a hotel at a time when hotels were almost all fully booked. Upon my arrival, before starting our tour, she explained to me how to navigate the complex transportation system in Tokyo and helped me to find a special adaptor for my PC by visiting together several shopping malls. As a female solo traveller I felt like having a friend in Tokyo available for advice and help any time I needed. Thanks to Miya I felt relaxed and safe in a city where nearly nobody speaks English. I travel a lot around the world, and none of my previous tour guides has ever taken care of me so nicely. And I have visited 54 countries so far! I highly recommend this beautiful tour to discover Tokyo's landmarks and hidden gems, and above all Miya as a truly exceptional travel guide!

The whole experience was very unique. I liked it a lot. After meeting with the guide, he drove me and two other participants to a popular car parts store and afterwards to Daikoku PA in his Ford Mustang GT. At Daikoku we got to see many incredible cars and experience this unique atmosphere filled with car enthusiasts showing off and admiring eachother’s cars. Afterwards we made a stop at Tokyo Tower and lastly the guide drove the other party and me to our hotels. Throughout the whole experience our guide, Tayo, was super nice and friendly. He showed us a few popular sights during the car rides and was very fun to interact with. Overall it was a very enjoyable and exciting experience! Must-do for car lovers.

Experiencing Tokyo with Hitomi as a guide and driver was an absolute must! She is really skillfull driver, ensuring safety and speeeeed. Our journey began in the Tokyo centre, ventured through a car parts shop, explored the lovely Daikoku parking area, and concluded with a view of Tokyo Tower. Thanks to the entire GaijinTuned team, it was an unforgettable experience. I'm definitely coming back for more!

We enjoyed a memorable day with our guide Tani. He planned the day according to our wishes so we could enjoy the tour thoroughly. He also gave us background infos to the places we visited. I can recommend him strongly.

Great way to explore and learn the history of Tokyo
