Excellent tour guide. Hiro was prompt, knowledgeable, flexible and attentive to our needs. He took us to be best places for viewing the cherry blossoms. We have already passed on his information to friends for their trip to Japan.

Hiro is the most amazing guide we have ever had on Toursbylocals! He spent 3 days with us and literally showed us all that Tokyo has to offer. He made very good use of our time and really knows how to navigate the city. We also visited the KamaKura area with him. He is very fluent in English and incredibly knowledgable about the history of Japan, the shrines and the temples. He was so great with my wife and 3 children as we navigated the Tokyo subway and train system! My wife says he looks like a GQ model

Hirohisa is a great tour guide . We went over the itinerary to prioritize our visits. My wife was not feeling well today and he was very flexible and kind with our schedule. Took various breaks but we still saw the sights we wanted to see. We highly recommend him.

Hiro was kind and generous with his time and energy. Our group enjoyed his tour and we learned much about the area. Though the weather was inclement, it did not impact the quality of the tour or Hiro's willingness to address all of our questions.

Hiroshisa was an excellent guide. He orchestrated a wonderful introduction to the city of Tokyo with a balance of historical and contemporary sites. He also balanced the types of sites from religious to governmental, from commercial to environmental. As well, he helped us understand and navigate the subway and train system. Finally, he was helped us understand cultural norms that differ from those in the US. After our day with Hiro, we were more comfortable guests in this energetic and beautiful city.

Hirohisa was a fantastic tour guide. His knowledge of politics, religion, and business enriched our tour beyond our expectations. He also took interest in the rest of our vacation providing restaurant recommendations and helped us buy train tickets to Kyoto. We would highly recommend Hirohisa!

Our day with Hiro was one of the highlights of our two-week trip to Japan. He tailored our tour to our interests and was extremely knowledgeable about the sites we visited. Best of all, he was a great conversationalist and a wonderful source of information about Japan and its contemporary culture. I highly recommend him as a tour guide.

This was our first trip to Japan. We were very happy with our guide, Hiro. We exchanged ideas by email before we arrived and Hiro was very knowledgeable about his suggestions. We will use Hiro and Tours by Locals again & recommend it to all our friends. He went above and beyond to make our trip an excellent experience. We will come back & hire Hiro again. We have hired guides all over the world. Hiro was one of the best.

We had a great day in Tokyo thanks to Hirohisa. It rained all day, but that didn't dampen our enthusiasm for the sights that we saw. He knows his city well and we learned a lot in the short time we spent with him. I highly recommend him as a guide and hope that, when we return to Tokyo, we will be able to meet up with him again. I don't know why Hirohisa is rated "advanced" instead of "fluent" in English. His English is superb, including slang and idioms.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kindest comment. It was a wonderful day for me as well. I'm encourage a lot. I hope to see you both again.

Hiro was wonderful at getting us around from place to place on what would have been a very complicated (for us) adventure through the local subway system. We covered all of the planned venues and enjoyed what we chose to visit. His planning and execution of this short visit were both excellent.
