Nobu organised a great tour for 12 of us - a large group but he managed us extremely well. He is very knowledgeable and speak very good English. He guide us very well and we all learned a great deal about Tokyo, its attractions and its customs.

We truly enjoyed our tour. Nobuhide was great and very personable. He was on time and had an appropriate itinerary for us. Yet was very flexible. A private tour such as this is so much better than a large group tour! We will use Tours by Locals again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for wonderful comment. It was delighted to introduce you to all that is my city. I’d love to see you again here in Tokyo!

Nobu was the absolute best guide that we've experienced in a long time -- and we travel a lot! He was informative, polite, entertaining, funny --- and he provided site suggestions that we honestly wouldn't have thought of ourselves. 1000 stars wouldn't be enough to allocate to such a talented and well versed professional. His knowledge of the city and ease with communicating with American tourists make him a top choice!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Regina-San for such a wonderful comment. I enjoyed guiding you all around my city-and I’m happy to have another opportunity soon!

Nobu is an excellent guide--he catered the itinerary for a one day tour of Tokyo to our interests. It's impossible to even get all the highlights of Tokyo in a day, but we covered quite a bit efficiently. His English is fluent. I have a family of 5 with 3 teenage sons, and they were thoroughly engaged throughout the tour, which included the Sensoji Temple, view of the SkyTree, the street markets in Asakusa, the Anime/electronics district (Akihabara), and shopping in Ginza and Harajuku. Thanks Nobu!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for joining the tour! I enjoyed walking with you and your family too.!

several excellent points, very flexible in adjusting the tour itinerary to add items as time became available and suggesting compatible items. Nobu had a card with English and Japanese instructions on getting help if lost. Many tour changes were very supportive of what we wanted to do and enhanced our experience. we would have had even more enjoyment if Nobu could have given more background on Japanese life and customs.

Nobu is a very competent and highly experienced guide. We used his services during three days and he made our visit of Tokyo and Hakone a real highlight of our Japan visit. He is not only knowledgeable, but also flexible, adjusting the program to new circumstances or constraints (such as weather conditions). I highly recommend his services for a memorable visit of Tokyo.

Very disappointed with Mr. Nobu. During our time with him, we felt like kindergarten children being led from one train to anorher, from one staircase to another. Mr. Nobu just kept walking in front of us, leading the way but without one word of explanations of any of the places we visited. He probably has knowledge about the sites but, unfortunately, he did not share any of it with us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment.

Full-day tour started/finished at my hotel in Shiba and included: Tsukiji fish market, Hamarikyu Gardens, Sumida River cruise, Asakusa, Sensoji Temple, Nakamise, Tokyo Visitor's Center Lookout, Meiji Shrine, Omatesando shopping, and Shibuya. We made 2 refreshment stops--one for tea and melonpan and one for a sweet treat. Nobu was prompt, attentive, helpful, and provided just the right amount of narration. Would hire Nobu again next visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderful comment. I had a grand day walking with you. I also was glad to say that I could have your professional comments on my concern. Thank you very much again!

The guide was on time and catered the tour for my needs. As a fantasy author my main goal was of a cultural and historic nature. Not only did he show me places of intrest he had a great ammount of knowldge about them as well, and not just the basic facts but small details that were intresting, and just what i was looking for.

We were a group of 3 Canadians in Japan for 10 days. Nobu San is an amazing individual who is very knowledgeable and passionate about showing not only the sites but the Japanese culture. Our overall stay in Tokyo was excellent thanks to the tour we took the 1st day we arrived to Tokyo. We will be back to Japan as we fell in love with the country, the people and the culture and we will book Nobu San again.

My guide was very nice and kind and worked hard to make my tour enjoyable. The weather was so humid that both of us were a bit tired. I think it would have been better if he understood what I enjoy a bit more - I chose a more expensive tour option so I could do the things that are interesting to me. I feel we were a little incompatible as tour companions. I do feel he did his job and worked hard and there were many enjoyable moments but some unenjoyable ventures as well- maybe it was my miscommunication

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my first time to guide a solo woman and changed start time from noon upon her request. Most of the places were closed by early evening. That day was the summer festival day. I asked the guest whether the guest would like to go there and the guest said yes. But soon after we got to the festival, the guest said she didn't like crowded places. However, next time such unusual events happen on the same day I will do my best to provide a great experience as always

Fabulous day with Nobu spent exactly the way we wanted. After a morning touring the gardens at the Imperial Palace & the Modern Art Museum, he brought us to an out of the way car parts shop which was a dream come true for our sons & there was no way we would have found it without his help. Excellent English, patient & great sense of humor. I highly recommend Nobu!
