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 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

We had two excellent 4 hour morning tours with Sachimi, our private guide arranged through Japan Wonder Travel. Sachimi was able to accommodate all of our requests, including some last minute changes. We experienced a real feel for Tokyo, including its back street markets, riding the subway, and a lovely river cruise.
by Shell game (11/02/18)
As we had arrived in Tokyo a day later than planned we decided that a walking tour would be the best and quickest way to see at least some of the capital in the time we had.
Our guide was excellent and she spent more than the 4 hours allotted to us for this tour so that we could see as much as possible.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and got to see the Meji Shrine, Asakusa area and Senso-Ji temple, Shibuya’s crossing and round Shinjuku.
I would definitely do this tour again.

Yoko was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. She really took into account the various interests we had as a family of 4 including 2 girls. Our tour was jam-packed and we felt like every minute was well spent and thoughtfully planned out. We only wish we had more time to spend in exciting Tokyo with lovely Yoko.

We did a 4 hour walking tour with Mari on our first day in Tokyo. This was a perfect introduction to Tokyo and the metro line. Mari is EXCELLENT and we would highly recommend her tour to all!

Excellent tour! Our guide Amigo was very knowledgeable about Tokyo.
He brought us to a private tea ceremony, which we liked very much.
by Lise san (09/28/18)
We had the most amazing tour with Mari. It was like spending the morning with an old friend. We had a great time, it was informative and exceeded our expectations. Loved tasting all the different food at the Fish Market.
Thank you so very much Mari for a wonderful tour
Would highly recommend a walking with this wonderful guide

Japan is GREAT...!
We had the great privilege to spend 2 days in Tokyo with Mr. Kazu Kato as our guide. He is the greatest guide. - High knowdledge about Japanese and Tokyo history. Further, he was very friendly and kind.
He did show us the great and "obvious" attractions but further, we went to see the historical and local venues.
Is highly recommended.
by Simon (08/28/18)
Michi provided an excellent and thorough tour. She even stayed after the agreed upon time to ensure we enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. It was helpful having someone local to answer questions and better understand the culture. I would highly recommend a personal walking tour.
by Liz (07/25/18)
it was our first night in Tokyo and Kazu (our tour guide) was such a pleasant experience. Because of Kazu, we love Japan and Japanese people even more and we can't wait to come back for another trip.
by Thein & Katie Aung (06/20/18)
we had a chance to tour Ginza area with Kazu Kato and we had a great time. Kazu was very informative, patient, fun and helpful during our tour. it was such a memorable and pleasant experience. we would recommend Kazu and Japan Wonder Travel to anyone.
we would like to thank Kazu for his sincerity and hospitality during the tour as well.
by Thein & Katie Aung (06/20/18)
Kazu did a great job with my tour. He was very friendly and helpful. He picked me up at my Hotel and then took me around via subway to different parts of Tokyo including Roppongi and Imperial Palace. He also made sure I got back to my hotel as it was my first time in Japan and I wasn't sure about the travel routes. Great communication and tour as they send you email asking what you would like to see and do before you get your tour started. Japan is a wonderful place.
by Kory (05/30/18)
We scheduled the half day walking tour. Our guide was Yukio. Not a lot of people speak English in Tokyo but Yukio's English was perfect and easy to understand. He took us to the fish market (a must see) which was unbelievable. It is huge and you can purchase souvenirs there as well. It was nice to experience a part of the Japanese culture this way. We also visited Asakusa which happened to be having the Sanja Matsuri festival. Another wonderful culteral experience. There is all kinds of markets and restaurants in this area and it was nice having Yukio with us to help with the language barrier. I would book a tour with this agency again with no hesitation.

Excellent tour! Yeonmi and Japan Wonder Travel staff went above and beyond our expectations! We highly recommend booking a tour with Japan Wonde Travel.
by Nivia & Carlos (05/14/18)
We had a fabulous afternoon with our wonderful guide, Yeonmi, who was very knowledgeable in all things Japanese. She was informative, fun, open, and full of great ideas for our Tour. We went to the Imperial Palace Gardens which were exquisite, and then to the Asakusa district by train and subway to see several Buddhist Temples and have a Macha tea ceremony. It was all very educational and so much fun! Thank you, Yeonmi!
