Great day exploring Tokyo
, Nov 2019
Our guide Kento led us on a jam-packed day visiting all the highlights of Tokyo...Senso-ji, Ueno Park, Shibuya, Skytree Tower, Meiji Shrine, etc. His English is perfect, and he is pleasant and cheerful, with good sense of humor. His guidance through the subway system was invaluable, and he led us unerringly from each site to the next. He made sure to show us many aspects of the city, and to explain unfamiliar rituals and customs. Kento made sure that we had a wonderful day, and we highly recommend him!
Excellent day out!

Kento showed us so much of Tokyo in the day we spent with him. He went out of his way to cover everything we asked for, including helping us find some particular Kirby figures that our son collects, and also brought us to a fantastic restaurant for lunch that we wouldn't have found on our own.

Hi Helena, I am happy to hear you enjoyed the experience in Tokyo! Kento-san is a great host and has worked with us for a while now. He's a great representative of City Unscripted and, like all City Unscripted hosts, he does his best to meet our guests' needs and satisfy their wishes. Food in Tokyo is amazing and finding the best places becomes easier when you have a friend who can show you around. And I'm glad to hear Kento helped making this trip memorable for you and your son! Hope to see you again soon in one of our 40+ destinations! Anna Kerekes Co-founder | City Unscripted
Tokyo with a local

We had the great opportunity to see Tokyo and talk about the city, Japan and it’s people with a local. The day was clear and mild and we walked through some pretty backstreets, stroked around lovely gardens and visited holy places.
A Great Introduction to Tokyo

Our tour guide, Martin, was very knowledgeable and a fun/flexible guide. He gave us options to customize our tour and kept us going for almost the full 8 hours (we cut it short short by about a half hour as we were exhausted). Tokyo is a huge and complex city, yet Martin knew the city almost like a local who had lived there all his life. He could easily navigate between the old and new of an ever changing city. This is a tour well worth your time and investment, and we loved that it was private and customized to our preference.

This was our first time in Tokyo and we were so lucky to have Patrick as our guide. It felt as though we were touring this beautiful city with a personal friend, who did a beautiful job of taking us to the places we were interested in seeing but, more importantly, gave us an insider's view of Tokyo. Patrick showed us how to navigate the metro; took us to eat the most fabulous food in the Ginza: and shared a cold beer with us in an out of the way, small, local bar. We had a wonderful day.

Kenji was an excellent tour guide. He met us on time, took us everywhere we wanted to go, and was very patient with us.

We covered so much in the 8 hours , every thing we asked for and more, very happy, lucky in that we saw so many cherry blossoms in bloom.
