From the beginning when we booked the tour until the end we were treated with great courtesy and everything went wonderfully. Our guide Satoko was wonderful and showed us exactly the Tokyo we wanted to see. The only down side was the rain in the afternoon but we were still able to get around ok. Would highly recommend this tour.

Satoko was terrific. She probably had a heart attack when she saw all the middle-age and old people who had signed up for her tour but believe me, we all got something out of it - it was terrific! Really helped me understand the genesis of the Shinjuku neighborhood and why it has only developed recently into a tourist hub. It has a seamy side that is fascinating culturally - and we had such a great time checking out the Golden Gai area.Dinner at Boruga was GREAT too!
Satoko was a marvelous guide and a delightful young woman. As I have limited mobility Satoko arranged to drive our party around Tokyo by hire car. That meant we got to see the major sights together with extras that she included along the way. She was very competent behind the wheel. There were many highlights throughout the day including being taken to a tiny restaurant near the fish markets that only the locals know about. We wouldn't think of going to Tokyo again without engaging this great guide.
Satoko planned an interesting, fun and enjoyable day for my family in Tokyo. She provided interesting cultural information, showed us how to navigate the rail system, took us to local restaurant and was a very enjoyable guide. We saw some great sites and she always pointed to other things we could do in the areas we were if we were to go on our own the next day. Highly recommended.
Satoko was wonderful! And so the tour. She is very knowledgeable, pleasant and patient. Visited some incredible places we would never see without her. A perfect guide. Next time in Tokyo we will ask her to show us more things. Great experience!

Visiting the Tsukiji fish market with Satoko was great! It was such a better way to see the market than just walking around on our own, she really helped us to see and understand so much more about what the market offers and how it works. After meeting up, Satoko took us through the outer and then inner markets, stopping at various stalls to try a wide range of interesting foods. I definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is really interested in experiencing the market.

Satoko is a fantastic guide. She took me to areas where I would never be able to find on my own. She is very knowledgeable and personable too. She has provided me a wonderful time and experience I will never forget.
