A Recent Review of this tour

It was a pleasure to meet Makayla for our full day tour of Tokyo. She arranged everything perfectly to accommodate our interests and the fact that one of our party was using a wheelchair. She tailor-made the order of the tour to fit in with traffic/busy sites and liased well with our driver to make everything run smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others looking for a guide in Tokyo.
