Pascal is an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide who completely fulfilled our expectations. We visited exquisite gardens I had not seen on any list of Tokyo attractions. He not only presented the gardens but explained their timeline, history, and significance. My wife and I had a free morning as part of a 2 week Japan tour and we invited our tour guide to join us, which he did. Even this professional guide was impressed with the garden selection and Pascal's presentation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you so much for your very kind words and your impressions of the tour ! It was a real pleasure meeting you and your wife while showing you the magnificent gardens we have in Tokyo. I hope you are both now safely back home in the US. I look forward to seeing you both again here when this whole sanitary crisis is behind us. Take care and kind regards, Pascal

While we expected the gardens to be beautiful, and they were, his information about them put them in better context. His tips on the subway were really helpful, and his cultural insights as a non-Japanese were illuminating. Pascal was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. Money well spent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jerry, Thank you for your very kind words. It was a real pleasure to do the tour with you. I sincerely hope to meet you again in the future ! Take care ! Kind regards,

Pascal's tour was way beyond my expectation. I saw things in Tokyo that I never would have considered and it gave me a greater level of understanding of the history of this amazing city. His knowledge is diverse and his choice of places to see perfect for what I was looking for. If I could give him 10 stars I would. I have great appreciation for the time I have spent with him in Tokyo. Highly highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, I have no words strong enough to thank you for this beautiful review ! It was a real pleasure for me to spend some time with you. Let us keep in touch and I sincerely look forward to talking with you again ! Your friend in Tokyo, Pascal

We thoroughly enjoyed our day touring the gardens of Tokyo with Pascal. He put the design of each garden in historical perspective, and arranged the order of our visits such that it was easy to compare the styles. We walked a LOT but the pace was perfect, and Pascal made adjustments as needed for breaks from the heat and humidity. We learned a lot but were not overwhelmed by a flood of information. We would highly recommend Pascal as a guide and this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, Thank you so much for your kind words about the tour ! I am so glad your husband and yourself enjoyed our time together. The gardens themselves are magnificent but I believe it is also important to put them in perspective, historical and social, to enjoy them more. I sincerely hope to see you again in the future and I wish you both the very best ! Kind regards, Pascal
Jane TesoroUnited States
It's our second time taking this tour. We really enjoy our day with Pascal. We learned a lot about Japanese culture and history. Pascal is also extremely flexible and able to tailor the tour to suit our children. Will definitely book this tour again if we come back. Highly recommended!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, Thank you very much for your kind words ! It was a real pleasure guiding you and your family again. I sincerely hope all went well for all of you since we met. I look forward to meeting you all again ! Say hi for me to the kids, especially my friend “Sammy the shark” ! Kind regards, Pascal
Pascal was a great guide. Passionate and very well informed. No rush, in our tempo. We had a great day . Thanks Pascal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words, Luc ! It was a pleasure meeting Vera and yourself yesterday. Thank you again for booking the tour and have a great cruise ahead ! À bientôt!!
An excellent (English speaking) guide who knows his subject matter about the best gardens in Tokyo - history and special features . We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and we were blessed by actually having the Cherry Blossoms out at the time of our visit - Pascal was able to take us to the best viewing places. He knew a shorter entry queue at one garden by going to another entrance. We are both over 70 so slower walkers than Pascal and he was able to anticipate and accommodate our needs. Thank you Pascal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter for your review and these very kind words ! It was a real pleasure doing the tour with you and your wife. Hope you have been enjoying the rest of your stay in Japan and see you again !
Andrew ChungUnited States
Wow! This is not my first time visiting Tokyo, but going on a day tour with Pascal was something brand new. The secret Japanese gardens that he took me too was definitely worth it. It should be in everybody's list. Also the Edo-Fukagawa Museum was was worth a visit, I didn't even know it existed. Also ask him for a recommendation for a good place to eat VERY GOOD Japanese ramen. Since you will be walking alot have him suggest a good place for a great coffee and snack stop at a Japanese local cafe.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Andrew, Thank you so much for the rating and your very kind words ! As you know Tokyo quite well already, I am very glad you enjoyed the tour and I managed to surprise you with new places. I had a wonderful time in your company and I look forward to eating great ramen and sweets with you again in the future !
Gloria DittusUnited States
Pascal was filled with interesting information about the places we visited. He included just the right amount of history and commentary. Our day was filled with the sights and sounds of Tokyo. We found a lovely little restaurant for lunch, he helped us find a nic wi e store between stops and taught us a lot about Japan. I would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gloria, Thank you for your company yesterday and for your very kind words ! It was a real pleasure guiding yourself and your friend yesterday and I am sincerely glad to learn you enjoyed the tour. It was also a bonus to get to see the imperial wedding ! Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and we meet again in the future ! Kind regards, Pascal

We had a wonderful morning with Pascal looking at all the beautiful gardens in Tokyo. He is extremely knowledgeable about history of the gardens and showed us places we would never have thought to go. The only issue were the mosquitoes! For that we cannot blame him. Anyway, I would very highly recommend this tour if you are interested in the beautiful places in Tokyo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rebecca, Thank you for your kind words and review ! It was a real pleasure spending a morning visiting the gardens in your company. I hope to see you again during your next trip to Tokyo ! Kind regards, Pascal

Pascal was a wonderful tour guide! He was knowledgeable, flexible, and courteous. During our Hakone tour, he asked us specific questions about our Tokyo tour so he could plan accordingly to our interest. We loved his suggestion to visit the "Fukagawa Edo" museum to see how life was like long ago in a typical Japanese neighborhood. We enjoyed all the sites visited, and his recommendation of a Ramen noodle restaurant. Delicious! We thank Pascal for an amazing tour and memorable experience while in Tokyo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias for these very kind words and this great Tokyo tour with you and your family ! I am sincerely glad you enjoyed the sites, the food and the museum. Yes, the Fukagawa-Edo museum is really a fascinating place and a great opportunity to see how people lived in this city a few centuries ago. Hope all is well with all of you. See you again !
Javier YanesUnited States
Pascal was a wonderful tour guide! He was knowledgeable, flexible, and kind. The day was well planned. We also enjoyed his recommendations for typical Japanese meals; especially, the Japanese curry by the lake. We thank him for an amazing tour in Hakone, and we now have a memorable experience. We highly recommend Pascal if planning a trip to Tokyo and surrounding areas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words ! I had a great day too in Hakone with your beautiful family. Yes, the Japanese curry by the lake is quite something ! Hope all is well back home for all of you. See you again ! Hasta Luego !
Steven E.United States
Pascuel was wonderful! We highly recommend him. He was timely, knowledgable and fun to move through town with. He educated us on Japanese culture and showed us beautiful sights and delicious foods. He tailored the tour to our requests. He was engaging to our family of various ages, especially our young son. We took the subway and he was helpful and educated us sufficiently on the city layout so we felt very comfortable on subsequent days taking the subway on our own. Great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steven, Thank you so much for your kind words ! It was a real pleasure spending a day with yourself and your family ! I had a great time myself engaging with your children. They are a wonderful bunch and I wish them all the very best for the future. I am also glad to know that the rest of your stay in Tokyo went very well ! Hope to see you all again ! Kind regards, Pascal
We had a great day with Pascal. Took and showed us exciting places. He was knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear May, Thank you for your kind rating and comments ! It was a real pleasure guiding you and your family. Hope to see you again in Tokyo ! Kind regards, Pascal

We had a wonderful time touring Tokyo with Pascal. We were a group with four children and Pascal did an amazing job of keeping them entertained while still getting to the places that we wanted to see and making time for lunch and snack breaks. We highly recommend Pascal!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gia, Thank you so much for your kind words !! It was a real pleasure meeting you, Jane and the children. It was really lovely spending time with all of you and I sincerely hope to see you all again in Tokyo. Please say hi for me to the children ! Pascal
