5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

I'm in love with Tokyo now. Friendly people, very polite and organized and so clean. 5 star city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Well planned and very informative guide. She didn't herd us around but emphasised what time we needed to be back at the bus. The sites we visited were diverse, enjoyable and would have been harder to cover on your own. Also lunch was excellent.
