Yumi was great guide and very fluent in english. We covered a lot of Tokyo in our 8 tour and Yumi was very knowledgeable. Using the Metro with 3 day travel passes made the travel very convenient and cheap. I would recommend Yumi to any travellers to Tokyo

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, thank you so much for your feedback with 5 stars! I really appreciate it. I enjoyed guiding you in Tokyo, it was a great time for me. I hope you enjoyed your trip to Japan and Korea, even though you couldn’t take a cruise from Yokohama, I suppose. I wish your good health, happiness and all the best for you and your family. Yumi

Yumi did a fantastic job guiding us through Tokyo for the day. She was as friendly as she was knowledgeable about Tokyo culture and history. We saw so many sites and got great group photos. Thank you, Yumi!

Tour: #11726, Half day Tokyo and Kamakura private tour Tokyo by public transportation for Ms. Martine Sullivan Family, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Jan 8/20

Yumi was fantastic, we couldn't have asked for a better person. Yumi was wonderful with her communication, and personalized the tour for us. On day one she took us around all the fun and wonderful parts of Tokyo, we also visited some beautiful shrines that weren't frequented by lots of tourists. Yumi helped us negotiate the subway and purchase subway passes. Then on the second day Yumi took us to Kamakura which was a truly magical experience. Yumi's English and French is excellent, she is a charming!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martine, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback and comments with 5 stars. I am really happy to hear that. Thank you for choosing me as your guide in Tokyo. It was enjoyable tours with you and your family, especially with your lovely boys. Your family is so nice. I hope you keep traveling in Hokkaido in safe and have a great time there. I will contact you when I make a trip to Gold Coast. Hontoni tanoshikatta desu. Aeteyokatta desu. Kiotsuketene. Best wishes, Yumi

Date: Dec 27/19

Yumi was an excellent guide. We were glad to have her help in navigating the public transit to Nikko from Tokyo, and then had an amazing time sightseeing through the town and local mountains during a heavy snow fall. In Nikko she arranged for a driver and van for our party of 5, and the driver was an enjoyable gentleman who also added color to the trip. The sights were gorgeous, the snow was fun, and we had a great time. I highly recommend Yumi as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brian, Thank you so much for your great feedbacks with 5 stars. And I thank you for choosing my tours. I really appreciate it. I had a great time with you and whole your family in Tokyo and in Nikko. Your children are smart and well-educated. I hope you keep traveling in Japan safely and in good condition. I wish you have a happy new year and all the best for you and your family. Please send my best wishes to Marion, your wife. Yumi

Yumi was an excellent guide throughout Tokyo. It was our first day in Japan. Yumi met us at our hotel and proceeded to guide us through a wonderful day of sights across the city. She helped us understand how to use the public transportation system such that we were confident to do it on our own afterwards. My family was diverse in ages and interests (me, my wife, our sons ages 20, 17, and 12). Yumi engaged us all and kept both our sights and conversation flowing. I highly recommend her.

Date: Dec 21/19

We booked Yumi for a full day customized private tour and were adsolutely satisfied. We were only going to be in Japan for three days and wanted to see and experience as much of a Tokyo as possible. I reached out to Yumi two months in advance and shared our dates, interests and preferences. Yumi freed up her calendar and accepted my request, and worked closely with me planning our tour, including hiring a private van and driver to maximize time and distance. We strongly recommend Yumi and Tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rafael, thank you so much for hiring me as your guide this time and also for such a great feedback with 5 stars. I am deeply proud of receiving these words from you. I had a really great time and enjoyed with you and your lovely family in Tokyo. I hope you enjoyed in Philippines as well and flew back home in safe. I wish you have a very happy new year in good health. All the best, Yumi

Tour: #7787, Hakone one day Private tour from Tokyo by public transportation for Ms. Elizabeth Bondar, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Dec 20/19

Yumi was great! She had to help us navigate the metro/subway on our first day in Tokyo and she was exactly the guide that we needed. She gave us great personal information to help describe a cultural concept and to teach us about the Hakone and Tokyo areas. She was well organized and did a good job of improvising when the bus route and train schedule were modified from her previous experience in the area (due to the typhoon reconstruction). We enjoyed our touri and would choose Yumi again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, thank you so much for your feedback with 5 stars. I really appreciate it. And I thank you for choosing my tour to Hakone. It was enjoyable tour for me too. I wish you have a happy new year. All the best for you and your family. Yumi

Tour: Off the beaten path, Food tour in Tokyo 5.5 hours by public transportation, Tokyo, Japan
Date: Dec 15/19

The only concern I had about the tour is the title; it is inaccurate to call it a Food tour. Although we did stop at a great Izakaya for Yakitore and other delights. But it is accurate that she took me 'Off the beaten path' to some degree. I went to a local neighborhood and a famous park that many tourists might not ever see.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wresley, thank you so much for joining in my tour and for your feedback. Yes, this tour is not only for food but also to see Tokyo local people’s daily life in their neighborhood and also the tourists can have an experience to eat local casual food or street food. I hope you keep traveling in safe and in good condition. All the best, Yumi

This was 2nd time with Yumi. 1st was on last visit and we went to Five Lakes. This time she took us to Nikko which was breathtaking. Sacred bridge, Gorge, Lake, etc. Always the professional, she took care of everything...train tickets, private van, etc. The driver was from Nikko and was excellent. Afterwards, she helped us with other aspects of our trip. She loves to email you even after her "tour" is over. She is a great guide - THE BEST!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeremy, Thank you so much for choosing my tour again. And also thank you for your great comments and 5 stars about my services. I really appreciate that.

Tour: #93290, Nikko one day private tour from Tokyo for Mr. David Humenansky Party, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Nov 5/19

This was our 3rd tour with Yumi and it was the best - one reason being we hired a car/driver. She had a good tour route, kept us informed about the sites, and completed the nicely paced tour. The driver assisted Yumi with local information to share with us. She is personable and friendly and has a good command of English - although not fluent in our estimation. She was very helpful arranging our transportation for the next day and getting our train tickets. We enjoyed her presence and would recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David and members of the group, Thank you very much for hiring me as your guide this time and for your feedbacks. We had a private car in Nikko area and we didn’t have any problems of walking issues there. I wish you keep traveling in Japan in safe and in good conditions of your health. If something happens during your trip such as an emergency case, please call 119 (to call an ambulance), especially for John’s issue. I forgot to tell you before leaving you. I wish all the best, Yumi

Tour: #8130, Kamakura one day private tour from Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Nov 3/19

We used Yumi 3 times and she got progressively better for us each time. She is friendly, personable, and helpful. Her English is advanced but not fluid in our estimation. 1 member of our group had a walking problem and she adapted the pace of our tour well to account for that. She needs, however, to provide more background and context about the sites we saw. She spoke little. We asked multiple questions to get the info and the answers were sparse. She did nicely introducing us to local foods. A solid 3.5

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you for hiring me as your guide this time and for feedbacks. Yes, it was my challenge to handle 4 people in a group with a member of walking problems, in different walking paces. Also it was the mid of national holiday seasons, there are a lot of tourists in Kamakura. Since we took trains and buses which were very busy, we couldn’t help taking seats separately. I explained the history of Kamakura and guided each places well. I am sure I did my best under unexpected circumstances. Yumi

Yumi is great for helping ensure your trip is successful - from getting tickets to helping with train tickets. 1 of our group of 4 developed an issue restricting his ability to walk impacting her ability to provide a quality tour within the original expectations. On the + side, she was friendly, willing to help, and showed concern. On the flip side, she did not talk much leaving an info vacuum, kept a pace to fast for the group, & struggled answering our questions to our satisfaction. Overall, a 3.5.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you for hiring me as your guide this time. Actually, it was my challenge to handle 4 people with totally different paces of walking in one group including John’s walking issues. I had a experience to call an ambulance for my client in the past. So I needed to look after him carefully. Yumi

A really good tour on an incredibly wet day. Yume was delightful and we got to see most of the things we had planned to do in spite of the continuous downpour. She took us to a great sushi bar for lunch and to dry out and was happy to help us get our JR rail passes at the end of the day. Would happily recommend her to others.

We had originally booked a tour to Fuji 5 lakes, but unfortunately due to typhoon damage we found out on the day this was not possible. Yumi very quickly arranged a wonderful day tour to Kamakura instead. Although it was cloudy and we didn't see Mt Fuji it didn't matter as Yumi took us to many beautiful attractions and a delicious place for lunch. Yumi was friendly, professional and knowledgeable - we would highly recommend her!

Yumi did a great job for us. We zipped around Tokyo via subway. My wife was having trouble walking and Yumi found elevators and escalators whenever available. We had another great tour with Yumi; going to sites we did not see on our first tour with Yumi two weeks earlier before our cruise. We wanted to visit the Chabad and she found it and took us there. We would highly recommend Yumi if you are looking for a tour guide in Tokyo.

Yumi provided us a great tour. We are using her for both our days in Tokyo so she could coordinate our tour stops between the two days. Yumi was personable, professional, and knowledgeable. She set our pace to accommodate my wife's slow walking pace and strategically interspersed air conditioned locations on the hot and humid day. She arranged a terrific day with interesting sites to visit. I'm sure our second day will be equally good.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Norman, Thank you so much for such a great feedback for my guiding. I really enjoyed touring with you today, although it was a harsh day. I hope you have a great time on the cruise around Japanese archipelagos and am looking forward to seeing both of you in 2 weeks. Take care. Yumi
