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!

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.

Yvonne was excellent! She was very knowledgeable, sweet and very patient with the kids. She accommodated to all our requests and went beyond our expectations to help us out. It was a great first day in Tokyo. Would recommend her to anyone!

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.

Imran Ahmad was such a wonderful tour guide! He could not have been friendlier, more caring or more knowledgeable. We had a great time with him and will recommend him to our friends.
