We had Yoko as our guide for the tour and she was wonderful! Charming and well informed, she took us around Meiji Shrine and Asakusa Shrine and also around Shibuya where we were staying. We had our kids with us, one of whom was on a stroller, so we were slow but despite running behind schedule due to the kids, she never tried to hurry us or skip over things. The kids were quite sad to leave her in the evening. Your company is lucky to have employees like her and we will be sure to use JapanWonder Travel next time we want a guide in Japan.

4 hours is not enough time to see a small part of Tokyo, she was helpful but we felt in a hurry all the time. Our suggestion is to offer only 8 hours tours in Tokyo.

An excellent tour extremely well organised by our guide, Skip.
He made it so interesting and was very courteous and helpful throughout - a memorable experience.

Fantastic Tour Guides - we really enjoyed our experience in Kyoto and Tokyo. Japan World Travel provided various guides and tours and arranged baseball tickets and train tickets, etc.. Yeonmi was a fantastic guide for several days. Really great with our 12 year old kids and informative about the city.

We recently had a wonderful time touring Tokyo with Yuriko Kimura. Yuriko is a very experienced tour guide who introduced us to several iconic places while expertly managing the crowds and our energy. She is delightful to spend time with and could relate extremely well to everyone in our family. We all enjoyed learning about the culture and sights from her.
Yuriko took us to Sensoji temple and to a delicious Ramen lunch with a vegetarian option, then to the electronic district with anime and games our kids enjoyed. She introduced us to fun treats and shops in Shibuya. Yuriko is expert at finding great photo spots. The highlight for us all was the Emperor's palace, where Yuriko knew that a normally restricted area would be open for cherry blossom viewing. The palace grounds are a beautiful oasis steeped in history.
We only wish we had more time to spend with Yuriko, and will definitely seek her out if we're fortunate enough to return to Tokyo.
Japan Wonder Travel was also great to deal with - they made planning the tour very easy. I highly recommend this organization and Yuriko.

Wonderful tour from Tak! He was very friendly, passionate and knowledgable. He was able to answer all of our questions. He walked at a very comfortable pace. Would recommend him to anyone visiting Tokyo. Thanks Tak!

Did a walking tour of the Imperial Palace East Garden and Meiji Jingu Shrine with our guide Nanako. She was so pleasant to be be with and very informative. We were very lucky to see a traditional wedding at the shrine and Nanako was there to explain to us all about traditional weddings. She made our time here in Japan a very memorable and pleasurable one. Nanako went over and above to meet our needs and was able to help with how to use the subway to get to other places of interest even after our tour was over. We would not have been able to do it with out her.

What a wonderful tour! We thought we'd hit the normal sight seeing stops but as we chatted with Yoshie, she recommended some wonderful spots to find modern art. We began with a lovely walk in the Sakura lined street near Meguro river and honestly, I couldn't stop similing! We saw Meiji Shrine and then went off the beaten path to find Yoshitomo Nara merch and Yayoi Kusama prints. We enjoyed chatting with Yoshie and her willingness to change course and take us to places that felt unique to our interests. Highly recommend.

I had a most wonderful tour with Yoshie. She was very knowledgeable and kind and taught me a lot about Japanese culture and history. She showed me all the sights I wanted to see, including magnificent Sakura, and expertly laid out the itinerary so that we could make the most of our time. An added bonus surprise was seeing a traditional wedding procession and Omiyamairi at Meiji Jingu. It was a fantastic and memorable day. Thank you so much Yoshie!

We had a great tour guide to show us around the city of Tokyo, before going solo for a week.
Tomo, was kind, fun, easy to talk with, she showed us places we would have never gone to alone. This was such a nice day to spend getting familiar with this big city and even better she gave us an A+ tour and lesson on the subway and train system.
Thank you Tomo for a great, informational, enjoyable day.

Amigo did a wonderful job showing us around Tokyo. He was helpful, knowledgeable and our family felt very comfortable with him. In fact, if we travel to Japan again, we will call Amigo to be our guide. Wonderful day!

My private tour of Tokyo was outstanding. I was traveling solo for the Tokyo Marathon and arranged for a half day tour with Sachimi. She was absolutely excellent. Sachimi customized my tour based on what I wanted to see and provided valuable insights along the way! This was perfect for my 2nd day in Tokyo - it really helped me get acclimated and learn about and how to navigate the city. Sachimi is so knowledgeable, shared customs and traditions with me, and provided for the perfect day. I would highly recommend this tour as well as Sachimi! Thank you!

Yeonmi, my private tour guide, was fabulous! I highly recommend Yeonmi, and this tour. She was extremely knowledgeable on all subject matters, no question too silly. A great intro to Tokyo ncluding shrine and subway etiquette. Without this great tour, I don’t think o would have enjoyed or even appreciated the unique and rich cultural history and atmosphere of Tokyo. Yeonmi’s great personality and thoughtfulness was much appreciated.

Japan Wonder Travel was very responsive and accommodating via email and got me scheduled for a tour of Tokyo on December 23. I got in from Narita, and Kazu, my guide, met me at the Shibuya train station. He was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about all things Tokyo. I was impressed that he managed to show me so much (Shibuya, Harajuku, and Shinjuku) within a very limited timeframe. He listened to my concern about getting back to Narita in time for my last hotel shuttle and made sure I got on the right bus (a much cheaper option than taking the train back during that time of the night), thanks Kazu:) I am very satisfied with the service and looking forward to joining another tour hosted by Japan Wonder Travel in the future.

I really recommend this tour! If you’re staying few days in Tokyo it is a great option. Tomoyo was our guide, she’s wonderful.

We had a great time on our 4 hour private tour! It was totally customizable and our tour guide Noriko was fantastic! She was extremely friendly and pleasant to be around. She took us to some wonderful places while educating us on Japan’s culture.
I highly recommend this tour!

I did my first tour with Japan Wonder Travel. It was a special tour to Yokohama with Yuriko, our guide for the day. Yuriko walk us all over Chinatown and so many other places. We tried so many kinds of food. I enjoyed myself so much I ended up booking 2 more tours. KaZu brought us to the tsukiji market and we even had a sushi making class. Thereafter KaZu wall us to the different districts in Tokyo. When I go back to Tokyo I will use Japan Wonder Travel again. They are a very professional group with excellent guides!

Fantastic tour with Yuriko in Tokyo; we saw the Imperial palace gardens and Meiji shrine, then as we had some spare time, Yuriko recommended we go to the Cock Fair that was being held - it was the last day of the fair, and something we didn't know was running, so great that we had the opportunity to see it! As there aren't many signs up at the Imperial park/Meiji, it was brilliant to have Yuriko there explaining the history and pointing out interesting things to see. We took the public transport option for our tour, and Yuriko was really helpful showing us how to use everything - she even gave us some notes on how to activate our JR passes later on our holiday. All in all, a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend touring with Yuriko!

The four of us had an amazing experience with Tae. Over the course of three days, she not only showed us around Tokyo (speaking both English and French with us, and giving us tips in our limited Japanese), but we had a really fun time along the way. Tae was knowledgable and both built built and reviewed an itinerary with us. Along the way, she was adept and both helping us to do some exploring and also keeping us on track to see what we had asked her to show us.
We had so much fun with her along the way too. At the end of three days, we felt as though we'd gained a friend in Tokyo.
And lastly, I can't stress enough how much Tae went out of her way to make sure we had a great trip. She helped with some logistical problems were were having, gave us ideas for the next part of our journey, and checked up with us as we continued along in our trip through Japan.

We had a tour with Chihiro in Tokyo and it could not have been better! She was so knowledge and kind, definitely recommend!

We had a guided tour with Tomoyo last week and we only have good things to say about the booking process, the tour and support after the tour. Tomoyo are very knowledgable and shared a lot of interesting information we would not have got without a guide. She were happy to change the plans during the tour based on our preferences and sent us recommendations after the tour.
We recommend Japan Wondertravel and Tomoyo to other visitors in Tokyo.

Lily was a fantastic tour guide, introducing us to the vibrating city of Tokyo. We enjoyed the Programm, covering history of Japan and Tokyo as well as the current "heart beat" of an international City. Thank you so much Lily. Hope to see you again.Alex
