Maddy is an exceptional tour guide! She helped to find exactly the type of places I would enjoy seeing ahead of time, was fully prepared and very knowledgeable about each one. She also answered many questions I had about Japan in preparation for and during my trip. She speaks and understands English very well, and is very friendly and caring.

We absolutely would give Maddy not only 5 stars but 10 if we could. She is knowledgeable, very nice, attentive and fun. We saw all of the sites we wanted to see, had a nice lunch and she even helped us with train tickets and other practical matters.

Maddy was outstanding - friendly, energetic and knowledgeable. She effortlessly adjusted the tour after she found out we had already seen some sites and we saw and experienced parts of Tokyo we would never have discovered on our own. I highly recommend her

We had the pleasure of having two half day tours with Maddy, she was really flexible with our needs and she made sure we saw as much of Tokyo in such a short time. We loved that she got to know us and what we were interested in seeing and doing, so personalised. We have used Tour By Locals numerous times now and Maddy is the best Guide we have ever had. Do yourself a favour and book her, she will make your travel experiences and memories even better than you thought.

We have used ToursByLocals guides all over the world with great success. Our time spent with Madoka, simply put, was the best we have ever experienced. Our two days spent with Madoka was so much fun, it was like catching up with an old friend. We learned so much about Tokyo and Japan and yet we honestly felt like we were just living in Tokyo and going out for a walk. If you are planning on visiting Tokyo you will be adding to your experience by engaging Madoka.

Tour: Customised 2-Day Tour for Francine, her mum, and Katrina for Jan 28 and 29, Tokyo, Japan
Date: Jan 28/19

Maddy was heaven-sent!!! My niece totally enjoyed her 2-day tour of Tokyo. It helped that Maddy has children who are about the same age as my niece so she knew exactly what my niece would want to see. She is also very well-informed about local customs and traditions and her English is very good. I would love to have her as our guide again in our next trip to Tokyo and would definitely recommend her to my friends especially those who have never been to Japan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Katrina, Thank you so much for your such a kind comment. All I did was having fun with your niece and her mum for 2 days! It gave me a great opportunity to expand my knowledge as well. I'm looking forward to showing you a bit different side of Tokyo next time!

Maddy was awesome! My husband, daughters ages 18 and 20, and I enjoyed our half day Tōkyō tour with her immensely! She was great at communicating before our tour, flexible to fit our interests, knowledgeable and very helpful! She taught us the subway system and customs for visiting shrines. Her English was excellent too! Highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Doris, thank for your kind comment. Spending a half day with a happy family like yours was my absolute pleasure! Your daughter's drawing is now my phone's home screen (^-^). I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan!

My daughter and I recently traveled to Tokyo and never having been there before decided to hire a guide for 1/2 day. Maddie super helpful and knowledge with helpful suggestions and how to navigate the world's busiest train and subway stations.. She was easy to work with before as we set up an itinerary together, was punctual and very knowledge about the city. All her 'training' paid off as we never got lost and spend 3 full days moving around the city on public transportation. I would hire her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great review. I would love to show you the different part and aspect of Tokyo one day and I am looking forward to seeing you again!
