Meg was an awesome tour guide. We customized a full day tour using public transit. Meg is delightful and insightful helping us to make the most of our time inclusive of an amazing luncheon! Highly recommend this customized tour if your time in Tokyo is limited!
A good way for a first contact with this city and to be autonomous after particularly with the public transport.
Excellent insight into Tokyo culture and areas.
Picked up from our hotel and taken to many very interesting areas, streets,shops and parks including lunch in a small Japanese restaurant.
Meg our guide spoke really good english, and gave us lot's of background all day.
Showed us the subway and helped us buy bullet train tickets for later in the week. Gave us lot's of advice on where to go and what to do from our hotel as well as showing us shrines, wacky photo booths, Nissan cafe where they print your face on the coffee and cars for the boys, deep into the fish market, tea ceremony, bonsai shops, pretty parks, buildings etc
Our guide, Meg, was very knowledgable and flexible for our group of eight. A great introduction to Tokyo, it's history and culture.
Simply brilliant. Silvia was an amazingly friendly and knowledgeable guide and I learnt so much about Tokyo in a very short time although much much more to learn still. Before I left Meg gave me a list of suggestions for the day from which I chose 4 things - all quite different. This was very helpful! I could not have asked for a better day.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the various sites that we went to see. We chose the half day tour, which was set at a nice pace for us. It was our first day in Tokyo and our tour guide helped explain the subway and rail systems which was very helpful since we used subway's for our entire trip. We chose to see the fish market and the gardens and topped it off by riding the monorail. She explained facts about Japan and Japanese life all along the way. It was a great tour.
Fantastic and well worth the money. Meg was knowledgable, delightful and flexible. She spent extra time answering our questions and showing us the metro.
A great thing to do the first day in Tokyo. We got a flavor of Tokyo and Meg helped us pick places to return to another day. She was making sure we were comfortable giving us water and finding a place to just relax and take in the culture.
We booked this private tour for our first full day in Tokyo and are so glad that we did! Our guide was super friendly and accommodating we went during the hottest season, and the temperature was around 97 degrees that day we made multiple cafe stops to cool off. She toured us through Akihabara, Ginza, Shinjuku, Kabukicho, and Yanata. The tour was super helpful is orienting us to Tokyo's subway system, which proved very useful for the rest of our vacation. Our lunch that day soba noodles was super delicious as well, and we wouldn't have found it without our guide.
Ikumi was the perfect guide. We only had one full day in Tokyo and she managed to squeeze as much as possible into 8 hours. We couldn't have done it without her. She met us at our hotel and she spoke perfect Japanese and English. She took us to a shrine, a temple, an authentic Japanese lunch of soba noodles with chopsticks and a taste of sake, showed us how to ride the trains, some shopping and much more. We would definitely recommend the custom tour to see exactly what you want to see.
It's a bit pricey but is definitely worth it especially in my case travelling with 2 young kids 6 and 1 yr old. Meg guide and Tanaka san driver were excellent and very friendly!
If you are visiting Tokyo or Japan without a travelling companion who can speak/ understand Nihonggo and wants some personal touch in your Tokyo experience, this is a must! Meg helped us big time to have a better appreciation of Tokyo- the city, food, culture, and its people!
