A Recent Review of this tour

Ken's guidance means our family can now confidently use the Tokyo"s rail and subway system. We had a fantastic first day in Tokyo, with Ken explaining Tokyo's transport history while showing us some famous sites. I would recomend this tour to all families visiting Tokyo who want a stress free introduction to the city. Ken's help booking the bullet trains to/from Iiyama (for the skiing part of our holiday) has made this a stress free holiday.
