A Recent Review of this tour

My wife and 2 young children had a wonderful 6 hour tailored tour of Tokyo with Yasuko. She planned the day so we all got something out of Tokyo and none of us were left disappointed. She was professional, personable and extremely knowledgeable. We saw a lot in our 6 hours thanks to her, and no request from us was too hard. We even stopped to do some shopping when an opportunity arose. I highly recommend Yasuko and I will definitely be booking with her again when we return to this fascinating city.
