My tour with Miho was the best time and money I spent in Tokyo! I didn’t have a lot of spare time during my visit, and in half a day she whisked me around to all the top spots on my wish list. And she was super fun to hang out with!

This was an excellent tour that was catered to the groups needs. We had a change in plans and our guide accommodated us very well. We even ate lunch at a very authentic ramen restaurant that wasn’t on the list. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again.
