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!

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!

I had enjoyed this 72 hours fare. Had gone to different areas with no problem as long as I don’t use the Keisen, JR and anything that goes to airport. Just make sure you put your ticket and take it back with you - you have only that ticket to use from the time you start using it. It’s an excellent idea for all visitors who would like to use transportation wisely and cheaply. Thank you.

Koji-San was a great guide, knowledgeable and helpful and he tailored our itinerary to include the places we most wanted to see. He also showed us how to navigate the Tokyo subway system which gave us the confidences to do our own things the next few days.

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.
