My fiance and I took this tour the day after we arrived in Tokyo, and honestly, it could not have worked out any better. We needed a day to recover/adapt to the time difference and when it was time for this tour we were still a bit tired. Nonetheless, our tour guide, Ikumi, was energetic, upbeat, and outstanding. She really made us feel welcome. The entire time felt more like, going out with a friend rather than being pushed facts and information about certain things. She took us to several locations including the Tuskiji Fish Market which sadly is being moved to make way for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. If you have not had a chance to see it, I HIGHLY recommend you do so before it is permanently moved. The experience you get there is literally, once in a lifetime. If you are considering going to Tokyo, please visit the Tuskiji Fish Market before it is gone!
For us, what really made our entire 2 week trip in Japan was Ikumi. WIthout her and this tour early on in our stay, we would have been lost, confused, and unable to communicate other than basic Japanese, she taught us some keywords which we are forever thankful for. If you can, definitely request her. She is one of those people that you may have only just met minutes ago, but you feel like youve known her your whole life.
This tour was wonderful. My guide Ikumi was great. She was very nice and knowledgable. She took me around Tokyo and made me feel as if I was touring around Tokyo with a friend. We went to the major highlights and she also took me to places I may be interested in. Thank you again Ikumi.
We had a wonderful day in Tokyo. This is definitely the way to go if you're only spending a few days in Tokyo.
Loved the tour. Our guide Silvia made sure we saw many of the sights we were interested in during the tour.

The local guide, Sylvia, arrived at my hotel on time and we began the day tour of Tokyo. The transport vehicle was clean and the driver knew exactly where to go. Sylvia was friendly, informative, easy to understand and knew the subject matter. We were finishing a bit early so she added a few extra locations and sights to see. I was most pleased with the tour and heartily recommend it.

This was a great tour and our guide Meg was simply amazing. She really helped us understand the history of the places we were visiting and did a fabulous job during the tour. For someone visiting Tokyo, this tour is highly recommended.
Meg was our tour guide. She did an excellent job, she was not only flexible but also knowledgeable about where we decided to go. I would recommend her to everyone, definitely a five out of five.
We had our full day private tour in Tokyo with Meg and it was great. Meg is very friendly and knowledgeable and really gave us a great tour of many areas in Tokyo.
The Fish Market was a sight to see and we saw Shrines and Temples as well as different shopping neighborhoods. Our lunch in a restaurant in Ginza was fantastic.
I highly recommend this tour for any first timer going to Tokyo.
We personalized our tour, and started out getting an orientation to the metro system. Huge help in learning our to purchase tickets, read maps, and just generally get around Tokyo. Then our guide led us to some great landmarks. It was an invaluable way to start our first full day in Tokyo on our first visit. Loved how we could tailor this to our interests and needs. Great! WE did the tour on foot.
Meg is wonderful and an excellent guide! We had the full day with public transportation. She customized the tour to our interests and provided us with great suggestions for the rest of our stay. It was helpful being introduced to Toyko by a local, from the public transportation, different neighborhoods, to local customs. She really made our stay and experience so much better! She's so sweet and just an amazing person. I highly recommend!
