We didn’t do a lot of planning for our trip so decided at the last minute to book a tour to have a more efficient sight seeing day. They were able to find us a WONDERFUL tour guide who we enjoyed spending the afternoon with. In the evening I asked our kids (8 and 10 years old) what they thought of the tour. “Non-stop FUN!” They said. We all agreed. We got to see so many gems that we would not have found on our own and our tour guide Michi provided interesting information on history and culture in a way the everyone could learn and stay interested.

The half day tour with Sachimi was spectacular. She was kind and knowledgeable. We saw both the Meiji Shrine and the Asakusa area, specifically the Sensoji Temple. These are not to be missed and are so much more meaningful with a guide of Sachimi's caliber.

Mami was an excellent tour guide. She was able to meet us at our hotel then we took subways to get to the Tokyo sites. She helped us get SUICA cards and to learn to navigate our way around. She was able to add in the Harajuku street as well to show my daughter. She gave us tips and found a great little ramen place for locals. She made sure to keep the kids involved and found ways to connect with them the entire tour. We had a great time and learned a lot.

We greatly enjoyed our half day walking tour of Tokyo with Yuki. The extra information about the shrine and temple was interesting and added to the experience. Using the metro on our first day was helpful orientation. A thoroughly pleasant experience, thanks Yuki.

Tomoya San was the best. We had such a good time and she was very knowledgeable and accommodating. She picked just the right places for us to visit. We would have never gone to Yanaka on our own. It was such a lovely artsy part of Tokyo. She gave us great advice on using the metro and lots of insights into various areas of Tokyo. Enjoyed our Ramen Lunch. Thank you from the Avaz Family❤️❤️

Sachimi was a wonderful guide and managed to show us some of Tokyo's best sites in a very short period of time! We would highly recommend getting a guide if this is your first time in Tokyo and you have limited time. Sachimi was great!

Our guide Kazu Kato met us at our hotel and was very welcoming. From there he showed interest in what we wanted to see and provided good insight as to his recommendations based on his knowledge of Tokyo.
He tailored our Tokyo experience which suited the five of us as a family with adult children and also some very handy practices to do when dealing with the train system and the useless 1 yen coins.
Having previously experienced group tours in Tokyo a few years ago, a private tailored tour was vastly superior, as we were able to go through the ally ways and see parts of Tokyo that you would not see as a larger group. let alone to be accommodated at smaller restaurants.
We would thoroughly recommend Kazu-sun and a walking private tour.

We had a fabulous walking tour with Yuriko. Yuriko was very knowledgeable and helpful. We visited the Imperial Palace Gardens, Asakusa and the Pokemon Centre. Yuriko also very helpfully organised our JR passes which was a huge help. I’d definitely recommend this tour - it’s a great way to get your bearings in Tokyo.

We had a great tour with Toshi our tour guide from Japan Wonder Travel . He spoke good English, was friendly and helpful, knowledgeable, and good company. We visited the Meiji shrine, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and Asakusa (Sensoji Temple) followed by Nakamise street shopping (great for gifts and souvenirs) and a traditional sushi train lunch. He also helped us understand the train system which helped us for the rest of our trip. Highly recommended for those new to Japan.
