Date: Sep 12/18

Our family of four (all adults) had an outstanding full day introductory tour of Tokyo with Yoko, who met us at our hotel at 9:30 AM. We traveled all over Tokyo by metro, river taxi, and on foot., including a lovely garden tea house visit and a great tempura lunch. Yoko has excellent English and knows Tokyo well. We learned a lot about Japanese culture and she sent us helpful suggestions following up on our interests after the tour. She was wonderful about stopping for photos at scenic spots.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judith, Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. I'm glad to hear that the tour seemed to meet your expectations. I had a lovely time with you - all of you are very nice. I'm grateful for your kindness. I'm impressed with your deep knowledge about Japan, especially you and your daughter's. Talking with you was really interesting and inspiring to me. I hope you come to Tokyo again in the near future and hope to see you then. Please take care and have a lovely journey in Japan! Yoko

Yoko-san is a wonderful, courteous and most considerate tour guide. She promptly picked us up at the time scheduled and maneuvered us through. She showed us all the hot spots and took us to the strategic locations to take pictures and recommended excellent restaurants for tempura and sushi. She took wonderful pictures and is very well informed about history and current developments in Japan. she is extremely nice with great english and goes out of her way! She is great to help you get started in Tokyo.

Yoko is a wonderfully friendly and conscientious guide. She loves to take care of her clients. She is also a good person to talk to, and gave me a real insight into Japanese life, to me the best thing about a private guide, to get a sense of the people of a country, and not simply its sights.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frederick, Thank you so much for such a fabulous review. I'm glad to hear the tour might have met your expectations. I had a lovely time with you, talking with you about many things is really interesting and fun to me, which is also a memorable treasure for me. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. I hope you come to Tokyo again in the near future and hope to see you again. Thank you again and please take care. Yoko

We had a perfect day sightseeing with Yoko in Tokyo. We could not have asked for a friendlier or more gracious guide. Truly it was the most memorable day. Yoko's English is excellent, maybe even beyond the "advanced" level. She expertly guided us around the sights, explaining and pointing out interesting details. She was also very open and willing to share when we asked about her family and personal life. We highly recommend Yoko for a wonderful introduction to Tokyo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dorothy, Thank you so much for such a fabulous and warm review! I'm very glad to hear that the tour was memorable for you. The day was also memorable for me. I also had a lovely time with both of you. Talking to you about many things are really interesting and fun to me. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness. I hope both of you come to Tokyo again in the near future and would like to see you again then. Thank you so much again for having me as your guide. Please take care. Yoko

Yoko I. was punctual. She is a very hospitable guide. She was sensitive to our needs and well aware of our senior status in moving about slower. Yoko interacted well with the members of the group. She knows her way around and had knowledge of Tokyo history and heritage. Her good command of english is a big plus as a guide for foreign tourists.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jorge, Thank you so much for such a wonderful, warm review. I'm glad to hear that the tour met your expectations. All of you are very nice and kind and some of you are so fun. Thank you for making me laugh many times during the tour. I had a fun, lovely time with you. I'm grateful for your kindness. I hope you enjoy traveling around Hokkaido. I hope to see you some day in the near future. Have a lovely journey in Japan and please take care. Yoko

Yoko was very pleasant and eager to please. We saw some very interesting places, but due to the fact that we had time restrictions, more emphasis should have been placed on less time for lunch and shopping and more on sightseeing. We had no idea how far places were or how much time we needed for these places. She was a wonderful tour guide and with more experience she will work out these issues. I would certainly recommend her as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ricki, thank you so much for the great review. I didn't expect your kind review, so I really appreciate it. I'm sorry some parts of the tour were not up to your expectation. Some parts of the tour were challenging for me and I wasn't able to manage it well. I learned from the tour with you - it's a great opportunity for me. I'm grateful for your kindness. It's really nice meeting with you and your friends. Thank you so much for having me as your guide. I hope you enjoyed your whole journey in Japan.

Yoko was great!! She initially offered only a 1 day tour of Tokyo but she put a custom schedule together to show us the top sites of Tokyo. It was a fantastic tour and she did a great job of making sure we hit the highlights of the city. Her english was very good and it was easy (and fun) to talk with her. I would recommend her to others traveling in the Tokyo and surrounding areas.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cameron, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I also had a fabulous time with both of you. It's very lovely experience for me to take you to a lot of places in Tokyo. Spending the time with you are really fun. I'm very grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. There are a lot of attractive destinations in Japan. I hope you come to Japan again in the near future and hope to see you then. Please take care. Yoko

This was our second tour we had with Yoko. She is a lovely lady who is very knowledgeable about Tokyo, and the tour she arranged was a good mix. She was happy to change the tour slightly for us, and she is very good company. We can certainly recommend her for anyone who needs some help in seeing the sights of Tokyo.

Yoko's tour was great! She speaks great English and is very informative, funny and kind. Her tour of Tokyo was fabulous. I especially like the boat ride on the Sumida river.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Candice, Thank you so much for your lovely review. The day was unusually cold so I was afraid if you caught cold after the tour - I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the tour on the day. The day with you and your husband was lovely for me.

Yoko was a great guide. She helped us set up a tour that exactly matched our interests, and then checked in with us frequently during the tour to be sure it was meeting our expectations. Her English was very good and she had much information to share about the sites we visited. We had limited time in Tokyo and Yoko did a great job of helping us see the "greatest hits"!

Yoko is very helpful guide, she started helping and giving me advice before we even arrived Japan. She is very friendly and nice. The tour went as planned. We had two boys and the tour was made to be kid friendly. She even offered and helped us booked our tickets for the Shinkansen (bullet train) as I wanted to make sure we got the correct tickets for our destination. Definitely would have her as our guide again when we go back to Japan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Irene, Thank you so much for taking your time to post such a lovely review! I'm so glad to help you explore Tokyo. I had a fun time with you and your family on the day. Both of your children are adorable and that made me feel happier. Exchanging lots of messages and mails with you was happy moments for me. I hope you'll come to Japan again and hope to see you then.

Yoko was an excellent guide for our tour of Harajuku and Shibuya! She was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and really nice and easy to talk to. We had some specific requests for our tour such as visiting cat cafes and dressing up as Harujuku girls and she was able to find us places to make our wishes come true. Thank you Yoko for a wonderful time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nicole, Thank you so much for posting such a great review! I had a lovely time with you and your family.
