Tour: Tokyo City Highlights in 8 hours - a Private Tour, Tokyo, Japan
Date: Nov 5/18

Yulia was outstanding and her knowledge of Tokyo, both past and present, and her enthusiasm were amazing. It was such a pleasure spending a day with her and was truly the highlight of our stay in Tokyo. We highly recommend her and look forward to having her escort us on our next trip to Tokyo. Thank you soo much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary and Carol, Happy Holidays! Thank you so much for taking time to leave this wonderful review! It was such a pleasure to spend that lovely day with so beautiful people like you. I am endlessly thankful to the guide who couldn't perform the tour for you that day, so I had a chance meeting you. I hope to see you in Japan again snd soon. Have an amazing, prosperous new year full of great health, love and inspiration! Sincerely yours, Yulia

Tour: #436276, Tokyo Historical Heritages Full-Day Private Tour, Tokyo, Japan    view tour
Date: Oct 12/18

We enjoyed our day with Yulia. She provided a good general knowledge of the sites we visited . At the same time, the tour was presented as Heritage Historical, and that did not represent what we saw. Also, one of the sites was closed and this should have been known ahead of time as the site had been closed for a few days prior to us arriving. If you are looking for a general walking tour of Tokyo, Yulia would be a good choice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Christopher, I'm so sorry to hear that your experience was less than ideal! I would like to apologize for the poor service you encountered. For the last 8 years working as a guide, I have made customer satisfaction my main priority. I hope that anyway you have good memories and come back to Tokyo again. In the meantime, thank you very much for you review. If you ever return, I'd be happy to offer you 50% off for any of my tours. Sincerely, Yulia

Yulia is an extremely knowledgable tour guide and did a wonderful job of showing me Tokyo through a different set of lenses than I have seen previously. Next time I'm in Tokyo, I will look her up again for a different tour. She is extremely accommodating and made me feel like a local the entire time. She comes highly recommended. Thank you Yulia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris,It's so nice to hear from you! Thank you so much for finding the time to write the review and for your kind words.I will always remember the amazing rainy afternoon we spent together! I admire your generosity and passion for life, I learned so much from you. Please know whenever you come to Japan again I will customize a special tour for you to make you experience far beyond the ordinary and show you a hidden part of Tokyo that full of local flavours and never visited by any tourist before.

Tour: Off-beat Corners of Tokyo Todoroki, Jiyugaoka, Daikanyama & Meguro 8-Hour Private Tour, Tokyo, Japan
Date: Sep 23/18

I had asked Yulia to design a custom tour for my friend Masahide and I, whom I was visiting in Japan. I also asked that she demonstrate and explain the fundamentals of tour guiding, as Hide had expressed interest in potentially becoming a guide himself. In short, Yulia's performance as both a guide and mentor was beyond reproach. She truly does know Tokyo like the back of her hand. Don't let the fact that she's not a native Japanese person fool you, Yulia is a Master Tour Guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nick, Thank you very much for the fun day spent together! I am happy to know that your friend Masahide and you both enjoyed the tour. I hope you could catch this time the essence of the city that makes people come back here again and again. Good luck with your new projects and life! With kindest regards, Yulia

Yuri designed a great tour to suit our interests and capacities. It included some unique Tokyo sights, hidden parks, interesting art galleries,views, lunch at a great farmers restaurant to satisfy our craving for fresh vegetables, a trip to the suburbs and lots of interesting information about Tokyo and Japan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elaine and Kath, Thank you very much for the beautiful, warm and sunny Sunday spent together! Like most spontaneous decisions, and thanks to your unique requests, it was not only exciting for me to work on your tour, but also to live out another day walking around wonderful sights of Tokyo, enjoying our conversation about culture, history and people. I am so happy to hear that you, too, had fun and enjoyed the tour. Again, thank you very much! With warmest regards, Yulia

Tour: 1-Day High City Tokyo History Walking Tour, Tokyo, Japan
Date: Jul 7/18

Yulia was an excellent guide. Helped orientate myself and my 12 year old daughter on our first day in Tokyo. Took us to requested museums and also to places that delighted my daughter (ie a cat cafe in AkIhabara, the Ghibli shop at Tokyo SkyTree). Her language skills were invaluable in helping to choose an appropriate restaurant for my vegetarian daughter. She helped me activate my Japanese Rail Pass and booked tickets on the Shinkansen for our transfer to Kyoto. Melissa Nicholson Sydney, Australia

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Melissa, Thank you very much for your kind words! It was a great day spent together and I was more than happy to show you around and make that day as much pleasurable as possible for you and your daughter Emma. It is so nice to hear that you enjoyed your first day in Tokyo. Come visit Japan again soon! With kindest regards, Yulia
