Patrick was a superb guide who far exceeded our expectations and whom we, world travelers, rated as the best guide we ever hired. His knowledge of Japanese history, culture, facts large and small are the result of immersing himself into the intricacies of his adopted country. As an historian and resident he generously shares his vast knowledge and experiences without reservation. Our 2 day Tokyo tour was an advanced hands on seminar that left us yearning for more. A scholar and a gentleman of honor.

My wife and I spent two wonderful days with Patrick. He arrived promptly at our hotel and gave us an historical overview of the city (Edo) using old maps that set the stage for our tour. We were then off becoming very comfortable with the subway system. Because we chose Patrick for his historical knowledge, we saw most of the important sites from the imperial/shogun eras as well as Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. We also experienced shops, parks and neighborhoods linking the past to the present.

One of a kind... Patrick 7 stars!!! My husband and I enjoyed our trip to Tokyo. Patrick is EXTRAORDINARY & KNOWLEDGEABLE guide. Thanks to him we appreciate Tokyo not only as a modern city but as a Castle! We loved walking a lot. He gave the extra mile by being our photographer & even he sent our pics plus historical info & old pics to our home address in UK in an usb... what an EXCELLENT service!!! We would highly recommend him to be your companion to fill your journey with his peaceful & dynamic energy.

We have received an exceptional insight into the history, culture and contemporary life of Japanese society. My biggest regret was not having time to read all the material Patrick had sent well in advance of our meeting. Patrick's area of experience seemed limitless, there was practically no question unanswered. If I ever come back to Japan I would feel privileged to meet Patrick again.

We had the most spectacular 2-day historical tour of Tokyo with Patrick. He is incredibly knowledgeable and informative about the history of Japan in general, as well as the history of Edo/Tokyo and how the two are interconnected. His passion for Japan and its history is infectious. I feel as if we just finished a master class in Japan and its history. I cannot recommend his tours highly enough.

Patrick was so knowledgeable about Japanese history and culture. He knows the city in side and out, got us around quickly. Showed us great spots for food. He was flexible when we had to deal with emergency. We would love to have a guide like him for the rest of our trip. Also he plans to send us personal photos so that we have a visual lifetime memory of our time in Tokyo. If you are able to book a tour with patrick consider yourself very lucky!

The most extraordinary 2 days around Tokyo with Patrick. He's a walking encyclopedia on Japanese history and has a very humbling appreciation for both Shinto and Budhaism. Once the history of japan and Edo are explained the city makes so much sense. Patrick's choice of lunch venues is wonderful - little family run eateries with delicious food. And you'll be introduced to businesses that have been in families for generations and in the same location. You'll see Tokyo as no travel guide will show. Enjoy!!

We had the pleasure of having Patrick as our tour guide for 4 days, 2 in Tokyo, 1 Nikko, 1 Kamakura. I wouldn't call Patrick a guide rather an "experience creator", and a walking encyclopedia that truly brought a wealth of knowledge to our trip. He is absolutely wonderful! His background in history & teaching are apparent and helpful, since he makes learning easier. He is very organized, time manages and professional, yet allows and accounts for enough time to enjoy and take sites in at a leisurely pace

Patrick was our guide over two days for walking tours of Tokyo. He is an incredible source of information both of Japan's history and about the mores of Japanese people and their culture. He gave us two very full days taking us to many sites to local restaurants. He gave us historical background to every place we visited. He is patient about answering all our questions and really looked out for us. He offered to make restaurant reservations in kyoto for us as well as recommendations of places to visit.

Patrick provided an excellent historical, geographic, and cultural overview of Tokyo. His tour took us to major sights and several very interesting neighborhoods not on most tours. His Japanese language skills are strong. His restaurant and travel advice were excellent. We learned a lot and enjoyed our time with Patrick.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My thanks to Daniel and his family. It is not everyday that I have so well informed and thoughtful of guests when it comes to Japanese history and culture as he and his family were. It would be a pleasure and honour to see you all again!
