We were a group of 6 aged 12y to 60 y old and Chie handled the tour in such a way that we all had FUN. She guided us in local custom without which we would have been "lost " tourists.Great Guide!!

Chie responded promptly to all questions I had about the tour. She arrived at our hotel on time and discussed what we wanted to see and how long each would take. She led us through the subway and the crowded sites, making sure we were all following. She worked around the 2 different lunch requests our group was interested in so that we all were pleased. She also provided information about each sight, Tokyo and Japan in general as we toured.

We booked a city tour with Chie for Tokyo for Oct, 2019. She was an absolute delight to spend the day with. She covered many of the main highlights of Tokyo in 1 day & everything we had decided on prior to our arrival. She spoke english well. She took us to a nice restaurant for lunch & helped us order. We loved her personality & she answered all of our questions before we arrived & during the tour. She was a huge help directing us by train to our cruise ship for the next day. We highly recommend Chie!

Luis ValdesUnited States
Chie was great. Truly guided us, including recommendations on other parts of our trip. She had detailed knowledge on everything from logistics to history. She also knew of specific local conditions that helped us avoid problems (invaluable in Tokyo). We are well seasoned travelers and rarely use guides, this one was well worth it. She is also a lovely person, pleasant to be with all day. There were 7 of us and she handled each one beautifully. Can't miss with this one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Luis, Thank you so much for giving me the wonderful comments and rating. I am glad to know everybody liked the tour from me. I also had a interesting time with your big family chatting about many things the whole day. Thank you again. Chie
Excellent guide. Very sweet and helpful. She planned the trip around what everyone in the family wanted to do and was not limited by any preset destinations or timings. Highly recommend Chie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Akhil, Thank you so much for giving me your wonderful comments and rating. We were lucky to see the practice of horse riding by police officers in the Palace. I hope you are enjoying during the rest of your stay in Kyoto and Tokyo. Thank you again. Chie
Charity AbracosaUnited States
Chie was just amazing. She was able to customize the tour to the things that family would enjoy. She was such a trooper when our boys wanted to go shopping and even went on a Godzilla figure hunt adventure with us because one of our boys needed it for gift for a friend back home. We cant say enough good things about her. We covered a lot of grounds in Tokyo but it didn't seem hurried. We had so much fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Charity, Thank you for giving me your wonderful comments and rating. I had a great time all the day with your good family. It was a great time to see many flowers, Iris and Azalea, in the garden. I hope the photos with many beautiful flowers remind you of the tour in Tokyo. Thank you again. Chie
Anthea GerrieUnited Kingdom
Chie was a delight and helped us see so much in three hours, including places we had not discussed but she intuitively thought we would enjoy
Chie was a great tour guide. We traveled to Tokyo for the first time with our kids ages between 8 and 18. Chie came with an agreed tour plan for the day but was able to adjust the tour to accommodate the children's need as we went along the day. She was friendly, knowledgeable about Tokyo, gave us great tips to get around and answered all our questions. She ensured that we had an enjoyable day. Thank you Chie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carolyn, Thank you for giving me the great comments and rating. Did you have a chance to eat sea grapes later ? I hope you had a enjoyable time in the whole Japan like Mt. Fuji. Thank you again. Chie
Chie was amazing! My 8 year ol daughter absolutely loved our tour with Chie. She did a great job of showing us the sites - Tsukuji market and the gardens near by as well as Senso-ji temple - but also found interesting activities to entertain my daughter and shops that would interest her. She also found us a lovely authentic place to have lunch on our way between sites - something other guides had struggled with. And she helped me buy tickets on the Shinkansen. Chie is a lovely and very knowledegable guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Christina, Thank you so much for giving me the wonderful comments and rating. I am glad to know your cute daughter enjoyed the whole tour. I hope the small souvenir, sunny-side up egg key chain, reminds her of the interesting experience in Tokyo. Thank you again. Chie
Thankyou Chie for a great Tokyo tour. Despite the weather you made sure the kids and I had plenty of sites to see and things to keep us entertained. Some that we would have never experienced had we explored ourselves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello David, Thank you so much for giving me your wonderful comments and rating. I am glad to know you enjoyed the tour on a cold and very rainy day.

Sharmeen SuriUnited States
Chie was amazing. Very flexible, accommodating and friendly. I sent her a list of things we wanted to see and she provided some recommendations. On the day of the tour she adjusted on the go based on how the day was going and what we liked. We were traveling with our 12 yr old so she also catered to what would appeal to him. Chie was also well versed in the history and provided us with a lot of historical background. I would recommend her to anybody who wants to really experience Tokyo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Suri family, Thank you so much for giving me the wonderful comments and rating. How lucky we were because it was very beautiful day and we had a great time visiting a Japanese garden with less travelers. I cannot forget the face of your son when we went to Akihabara. I hope you are enjoying the rest of stay in Tokyo. Thank you again. Chie

Jo WhitmanUnited Kingdom
Chie is a wonderful guide. She planned the perfect day for our family to help orientate ourselves and get the best out of our stay in Tokyo. She really took time to listen to what our interests are and she gave us loads of practical advice on how to get around, places to visit and where to eat. She was very knowledgeable about history and culture. We learnt so much from our day with Chie. For any first time visitors to Japan, I would highly recommend a day with a guide like Chie to help find your feet.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jo, Thank you so much for giving me the wonderful comments and rating. I am glad to hear you liked many tips I gave you during the tour. I hope your family is having great time in Tokyo and any other cities like Kyoto, Kanazawa and Takayama. Thank you again. Chie

Chie was such a great guide and very friendly. She really took care to plan our day to maximize our time together. She explained how the train system worked so we knew how to get around the rest of our trip. She made sure we made it to all our sites on time and even found the perfect lunch spot for us. I would definitely recommend her for your trip to Tokyo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lauren, Thank you for giving me the great comments and rating. I am glad to know you enjoyed my tour. Thanks for your request, I saw very beautiful Kabuki play with you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Christine, Thank you for giving me the great comments and rating. I had a wonderful time with you walking a lot everywhere during the sunny beautiful autumn day. I hope you have a great time in Kyoto and Hiroshima. Thank you again. Chie
My day in Tokyo with Chie was a delight. Chie was thoughtful, knowledgeable and passionate about sharing her enjoyment of her city. She was able to tell me about historical, cultural and contemporary aspects of Tokyo, as we explored the vibrant areas of Harajuko and Akihabara, the elegant Otesmanda and the more sedate Yanaka. I loved this day with my guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Anne, Thank you so much for giving me the great comments and rating. I am glad to know you loved my tour. Because I was worried that your major requests, most museums and art galleries, were closed on Monday. I hope you also enjoyed your own group tour. Thank you again. Chie
Terrell PercivalUnited States
Chie met and exceeded out expectations. She was helpful in assisting us prior to our visit creating an itinerary. She was prompt arriving to our hotel, and guided us efficiently though the city during our day. We only had 1 day to visit Tokyo and I am so glad we chose to use a guide. We never would have learned about the culture and seen as much as we did trying to go at it on our own. Chie was very informative, helpful, patient and an excellent navigator. We highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Percival family. Thank you so much for giving me the wonderful comments and rating. We ate a lot of kinds of food, rice cake, Japanese cake, puffer fish, octopus ball and so on during the tour. That was a lot of fan ! Thank you again. Chie
Chie is lovely - personable and informative. She gave us a wonderful experience and insights to Japanese life which we weren't expecting. We highly recommend a tour and/or Tea Ceremony with Chie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lindsay, Thank you so much for giving me the wonderful comments and rating. I am glad to know you enjoyed my tea ceremony. Thank you again. Chie

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Collins family. Thank you so much for the wonderful comments and rating. We visited many places and walked a lot. I am hoppy to know everyone enjoyed it. Thank you again. Chie
We found Chie to be very personable. She met us on time at our hotel despite Typhoon Trami sweeping through Tokyo the night before. Not only did she show us key sights in Tokyo, but also helped us navigate the subway system and make reservations on the bullet trains. We appreciated her sense of pride in her city and country. Thank you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kathleen, Thank you for giving me the wonderful comments and rating. It was a difficult day just after the Typhoon. Thank you for helping me and walking around during the hot and humid weather. I hope you also had a great time in Kyoto. Thank you again. Chie
