We did this tour on our first full day in Tokyo and I cannot recommend it enough as the perfect introduction to the city. We could not have asked for a better guide than Yuriko and it very quickly felt like we were with a good friend rather than someone we had just met. Her knowledge of Tokyo is second to none but most of all she is a really lovely person. We went to the Fish market and tried many different foods (the best being the freshest and tastiest sushi possible) and saw gigantic fresh tuna, then to Asakusa, the Meiji Shinto shrine, Omotesando and finished in Harajuku. We could never have managed to navigate our way round so many parts of the city in one day on our own. This gave us the confidence to do our own "mini tour" on day 2 by which time we were able to use the metro like pros. Excellent tour and guide - highly recommend.

We had an excellent day in Tokyo with our wonderful guide Yeonmi. She met us at the cruise terminal in Yokohama and navigated the trains and subways as we traveled with ease -- and one of us is in a wheelchair! We visited the Higashi Gyoen gardens near the Imperial Palace, traveled to Asakusa to see the town and market and the magnificent Sensoji Temple, and had a terrific lunch nearby. In the afternoon it was on the Meiji Shrine, which was so beautiful and serene, a walk through a modern neighborhood with lots of interesting shops, and several scramble crossings in Shibuya. We had an outstanding sushi and sashimi dinner and then took the train back to the pier in Yokohama. It was a packed day and thanks to Yeonmi we learned a lot about Tokyo's history and traditions. I highly recommend this tour for anyone trying to see the best of Tokyo in just one day. And remember, this tour was all accessible to a wheelchair user! Magnificent!

We had great two days with Yuriko in Tokyo. to be honest is is almso imposible to see the whole Tokyo in 2 days, but we learned soo much from our guide! We had one day for east Tokyo and one day for west Tokyo. At the end of the tour I really fell in love with Tokyo and Japan. Yuriko is a great guide, she knows so much about Tokyo, she told us a lot about Japanese traditions and customs, showed us around the city, helped navigate the subway system. We were espcially delighted to see the fish market, it was very impressive.

We had a wonderful experience with our private walking tour. We had an excellent tour guide that not only showed us the places, but also thought as about the history and the culture. She was really helpful, polite and kind. She spoke english very well and made us feel at ease. My family and I will highly recommend having a private walking tour and to use Yoshie as your tour guide.

My Japan Wonder Travel experience was fabulous from start to finish! All communications and responses to my inquiries were timely and helpful. Most important of all, my tour guide Tae, was superb! Knowledgeable, warm, flexible, and responsive, she gave me a full day walking tour of Tokyo that could not have been better. By the end of the day, despite the fact that Tokyo is so big, I felt as though I had a real sense of the city. Tae filled me with interesting information and could answer any question. We walked through many different neighborhoods, I was introduced to the subway, and we had a marvelous lunch at a Ramen place I never would have found on my own. She quickly got the sense of what interested me, and geared the tour to these types of things. Her knowledge is wide ranging, but she was never pedantic or boring. To the contrary, we had fun the entire day while I kearned about the city. Booking this tour was the best decision I made!

We had the most amazing day with Yoko, starting at the Tokyo Fish Market and ending at the Shinjuku crossing. Yoko was such a gracious, knowledgeable, and thoughtful guide. She helped us navigate the crowds and made sure we had opportunities to rest in the heat. She chose an amazing cold noodle restaurant in Asakusa for lunch, which was one of our favorite meals in Japan. She also taught us about the history and culture. I highly recommend this excellent tour and guide!

We had a great day with Hiro - she was friendly and informative so we learned a lot about Tokyo and Japanese culture and history. I would really recommend to do this tour when you first arrive as it is a great introduction to the city.

Thank you to Nanako for an amazing tour.
This was the BEST tour I have ever been on. Nanako had incredible knowledge of Tokyo, Japanese history and popular culture. The diverse range of topics covered and locations visited was fantastic. We were able to easily customise the tour to my interests.
Thank you again! This was a real highlight of my time in Japan.

Our tour guide Yeonmi did an absolutely fantastic job. She made it possible for every aspect of our Tokyo tour to be Excellent!!

The Full Day Private Tour was packed with a lot to see. It was a good pace. Yuki took good care of us. She gave us a great introduction and overview of Tokyo & the Japanese culture. I highly recommend the tour.

The customized Tokyo tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. Tatsuya was very helpful and responsive in setting up our tour and making suggestions on where to go before our arrival in Japan.
This was our first time traveling to Japan. We had a great time with Hiro as our guide. The highlight of the tour for our family was the Tsukiji Fish Market. We were able to see, taste, and buy a lot of delicious food with her help. She also helped me purchase a camera and find manga (comic) books in Akihabara. We were able to see the Kabuki theater, Ginza, and Shinjuku as well.
We would not have been able to get around Tokyo so well without Hiro! We are so glad to have met Hiro on our trip. We definitely would travel with Japan Wonder Travel again.

Yeonmi was the best! She was prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable. We felt as if we had an immersion adventure. We would do the tour again...

We had a GREAT private tour with Tomo on May 2, 2018. She was very informative, crafted the tour to our needs, and showed us the sights of Tokyo! I would highly recommend Tomo, and this private tour!

Our tour was a lot of fun. Kumi was a great tour guide. She customized our tour of Tokyo for my wife and I. The pace was comfortable and not rushed in any way. We saw Meiji Shrine, Shibuya crosswalk, Asakusa, Takeshita Street, and Akihabara. Every place we visited was assisted with facts and extra information. Akihabara did not seem as familiar to Kumi but she definitely did her research and brought us to stores we would not have seen otherwise. On top of that she provided history and extra commentary on Akihabara.
The whole tour was in English, which was also very nice. My Japanese is not very good, but having Kumi explain everything in English was great!
I would definitely recommend this private tour, especially to those who have never been to Tokyo. There is so much to see and having someone take you through the city is more than worth it.

We had the best time with Yeonmi who was our tour guide! We were on a 29 day cruise and we all said she was the BEST tour guide! She was so friendly, warm and FUN!! She took us where we wanted to go, she made fabulous suggestions and we also had the greatest lunch at a restaurant she picked out for us! She emailed me quite frequently to set up our tour and met our ship right on schedule!
Highly recommend her as a tour guide and also this company was easy to work with!
Thank you for a fabulous time in a wonderful city!!

Japan Wonder Travel is a wonderful tour company and so nice to work with. We booked tours in three locations with this company and wish we could have booked more.
The four of us spent three full days with the most excellent tour guide Yeonmi. She planned a perfect tour of Tokyo. It seemed like we must have seen all of Tokyo. She was one of the very best tour guides that we have used on many world trips. Yeonmi was so very knowledgeable and shared much information about the places, things and history. She was also very flexible and made this our tour. She made sure that we had everything we needed and even helped with a small medical need.

What a day! This tour was fantastic. We started the day with Fumito at the tuna auction, and continued with Amigo hitting many Tokyo highlights. It was an incredible way to start our trip to Japan. Learning to take the subway was an added bonus, as we felt more confident when we were exploring on our own. Both guides speak excellent English, shared fascinating information, are lovely and kind and personable. They were very flexible, and very patient too! We highly recommend this tour.

We had an incredible trip to Tokyo. Our tour with Japan Wonder Travel was excellent. The positive experience started weeks before the trip. The Japan Wonder Travel Team were so helpful in tailoring the perfect itinerary, not only for the specific tour we booked; they helped shape our entire trip by giving great advice on our ideas to help make the most of our time in Tokyo. Our tour guide, Yeonmi, was incredible and made our week! She was so incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I traveled with my 12-year old son and Yeonmi modified our tour on the fly to better suite his learning experience. He is very excited to share his experience with his classmates at school when he returns home. I highly recommend Japan Wonder Travel. Our sincere thanks to Yeonmi for making our tour incredible and for helping make memories that will last our lifetime!

Our tour was one of the best I ever had in Asia. Our guide Yuriko was extremely knowledgeable and she has an excellent personality. She went out of her way to satisfy everyone's needs and group was large with different needs and questions. She looked after her group like we were her children. I highly recommend Japan Wonder Travel agency to anyone who wants to book with them. I think Yuriko is #1 tour guide in Tokyo.

Thank you so much for arranging our tours in Tokyo and in Kyoto. Our guides Toshi and Yumiko were both fabulous and showed us all the hot spots and best places to eat. We can’t say enough wonderful things about both 2 day tours. Arigato!!

Words cannot describe how wonderful and fantastic Hiro-san is being our private tour guide. Hiro-san's knowledge of historic places and street food is top notch.
Hiro-san is very friendly, funny, hardworking, her english is really good, and she is passionate about what she's doing, she takes everything to a whole nother level. And I am so happy to have a tour guide that feels like we're an old friends that can talk about anything; from cooking, kids, culture, traveling, daily lives; we even share some hilarious jokes. :)) what's for.. right? :))
I just wanted to say thank you to Hiro-san and Japan Wonder Travel company; to provide such the best service and guide! Ivan and I are very happy to take this tour. This day becomes the highlight of our stay in Tokyo.
I would recommend Hiro-san and Japan Wonder Travel to our friends and family, whoever wants to experience the best of Tokyo, this is the best place to book a tour.
Happy new year Hiro-san and Japan Wonder Travel! I wish you all the best, may God's favor, prosperity, His blessings always upon you!
Ivan-san & V-san.

We did a one day private tour of Tokyo with Yuriko. We only had one full day in the city, and were traveling with a 7 year old, so the pressure was on to maximize the fun and sightseeing without overexhausting our son. Thanks to Yuriko's thoughtfulness and planning, everything worked out perfectly. She was so knowledgeable about the sites, and planned a day around our interests and limitations. She was patient with our son's questions and even figured out that the Pokemon Center does special celebration if its your birthday, which was definitely his highlight. She kept pulling things out of her purse to help us- wipes, hand warmers, trash bags... we felt so well taken care of. We highly recommend Yuriko and Japan Wonder Travel- they were super responsive and exceeded our expectations.

Wow, where to begin. Our tour with Noriko was everything we needed on our first official day in Tokyo. It was so nice being able to get acquainted with the city layout and metro with Noriko guiding us. She was so sweet and very informative. We got to see so much within our over 8 hours, including the Imperial Palace, Asakusa, Shibuya crossing- just to name a few. She honored all of my requests via email and went as far as to go with us to Tokyo Station to get all set up with our Japan Rail Pass and seat reservations. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see as much of the city as efficiently as possible while hearing wonderful insights and history along the way!
