A Recent Review of this tour

Kauro spent an afternoon showing my boyfriend and me around Akihabara. Kaoru was extremely knowledgable and friendly; despite there being heavy rain we had a terrific time with her. Kauro had an itinerary in mind for our afternoon tour and we were grateful for her suggestions. However, she also allowed us to make requests for any specific activities - we opted for a cosplay photo shoot which turned out to be terrific fun. I would highly recommend Kauro and her tour. Amazing value!
