A very instructive tour , and fantastic experience . Not only we learned so much historical facts as our guide Taka was so knowledgeable , but we were also given a lovely tour of the area from alongside the river , taken for an amazing view at the top of the contemporary information building ( The design and architecture of it in itself very interesting ) . This was followed by a tour of very charming and authentic back streets in the vicinity . We learned so much and we were lucky to have Taka for ourselves as he did not have other bookings that morning . A big Origato Kata , you made a memorable moment of our time with you .
It was a great day with Misha.She met us at our hotel with a plan which we were happy with.It was great that she got us our Suica card and showed us how to navigate the JR train line.The sun was shining which was great not too hot so we did lots of walking. Fitness is needed to get the most out of this tour,even though we are a couple in our late sixties we are use to walking. Misha explained a lot about Japanese culture and customs so we had some lovely experiences there was eventime for me to quickly shop for my grandchildren Thanks Misha we both slept well that night
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. I highly recommend using Saya she’s very fluent in English and is awesome with little ones. Thank you Saya for an amazing morning!
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!
Saya was a friendly local guide who gave a good overview of the local sights visiting Meijii shrine, Akihabara, Shibuya and Shinjuku. It was great to learn to use the train system before embarking on the rest of our trip. She gave us great food recommendations and found this a excellent way to begin our time in Tokyo.
