    Saya Christina was our host and she was amazing and our 10 & 8 year old boys fell in love with her. Saya was very knowledgeable and helpful with teaching us our navigation skills needed to get around to other activities after our time with her. We had such a good time at the Shrine and then visiting Harajuku and the Totti Candy factory. We finished our tour at the Shibuya Crossing and watched some people on a Mario Cart tour.

My private tour trough Tokio was just awesome. Together with my guide Yoshi we explored Tsujiki Fish Market, Meiji Shrine and also some local shops. She gave me so many insights about Japan, the culture and daily life that it felt like exploring the city with a friend. Great day. Great memories. Thanks for this experience!!!

My tour guide was Patrick. I can only recommend him to everyone, he knows Tokyo very well and was able to show me many places that I would never have found on my own. The food, drink and the trip through the alleys - everything was just awesome!
