Eriko did a wonderful job planning and leading a full-day custom tour for my mom in Tokyo. She picked her up at her hotel to begin the day. She had pre-checked the location prior to the day so that transportation would run smoothly. She found a great local spot for lunch, and was very flexible and changed the planned itinerary at the last minute so mom could find a special souvenir. I highly recommend working with her!
