Our guide Yeonmi was just a godsend, booked online at the last minute. She helped us navigate Tokyo with great insights into the culture and ways of the Japanese people. She was funny, considerate and helpful to the utmost. Her advice on how best to utilise our short time in Tokyo was invaluable in making the most of our trip. We cannot recommend her enough.

Our guide Naoko was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and accommodated our requests for specific things and areas to see. She navigated the metro for us and moved fast so we saw a lot. She is very passionate about her job and it shows. She even looked after our two boys ages 10 & 7 when crossing a street and in crowded areas. We have a friend for life!

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!!!

Sachimi was a wonderful guide. She took us around the popular spots and gave us a great flavor for Tokyo. She also took us to a veggie ramen place which we all enjoyed. Overall would do this again with Japan wonder.

My guide was outstanding. She took me to very unique places. She really cared about customizing my time.
