A Recent Review of this tour

Eriko was a very pleasant well informed and organised guide for our tour of Tokyo. She was flexible and amended the tour as we progressed to meet our requests. She introduced various interesting diversions along the way and always had clear distinct responses to our many and sometimes personal questions. Her English was clear and we would be very pleased to have Eriko act as our tour guide in Japan in the future.
