We had a great day with Hirotake, whose superb English enabled us to learn a lot more about the city on our day out. We visited a wide variety of places, from shrines to a matcha café, posh department stores to a shop selling cheap second hand kimonos (well, we had to buy one!) and a boat trip on the river. We walked all day and enjoyed every minute.

Fulvio did a great job of customizing the day for my teenage daughter and I. It was a great combination of history, culture, and touristy and non-touristy sites. It is a long day and a lot of walking - we logged more than 25,000 steps and 11 miles on the tour - but we saw a lot of stuff. But don't worry - he asked multiple times if we were OK with the walking and that there are ways to reduce the walking if needed.

We only had 48 hours in Tokyo and it was our first time there and this was a great way to see a lot of different places as we plan our return trip.

Our guide Kento led us on a jam-packed day visiting all the highlights of Tokyo...Senso-ji, Ueno Park, Shibuya, Skytree Tower, Meiji Shrine, etc. His English is perfect, and he is pleasant and cheerful, with good sense of humor. His guidance through the subway system was invaluable, and he led us unerringly from each site to the next. He made sure to show us many aspects of the city, and to explain unfamiliar rituals and customs. Kento made sure that we had a wonderful day, and we highly recommend him!

Kento showed us so much of Tokyo in the day we spent with him. He went out of his way to cover everything we asked for, including helping us find some particular Kirby figures that our son collects, and also brought us to a fantastic restaurant for lunch that we wouldn't have found on our own.

We had the great opportunity to see Tokyo and talk about the city, Japan and it’s people with a local. The day was clear and mild and we walked through some pretty backstreets, stroked around lovely gardens and visited holy places.

Our tour guide, Martin, was very knowledgeable and a fun/flexible guide. He gave us options to customize our tour and kept us going for almost the full 8 hours (we cut it short short by about a half hour as we were exhausted). Tokyo is a huge and complex city, yet Martin knew the city almost like a local who had lived there all his life. He could easily navigate between the old and new of an ever changing city. This is a tour well worth your time and investment, and we loved that it was private and customized to our preference.

This was our first time in Tokyo and we were so lucky to have Patrick as our guide. It felt as though we were touring this beautiful city with a personal friend, who did a beautiful job of taking us to the places we were interested in seeing but, more importantly, gave us an insider's view of Tokyo. Patrick showed us how to navigate the metro; took us to eat the most fabulous food in the Ginza: and shared a cold beer with us in an out of the way, small, local bar. We had a wonderful day.
