This tour was absolutely amazing! Ken was super friendly and knowledgeable. We went to the fish market first and it was such fun way to start our day. He knew tokyo inside and out and took us on beautiful routes to our next locations. Ken was the best tour guide and simply gave the best tour.

This tour was excellent for a number of reasons. We were firstly really impressed with the Guide Ken San. He was enthusiastic, energetic and very knowledgeable. The care and attention he took, with me and my wife was fantastic.
The tour had to be adjusted after we had already visited a number of places on the list but Ken provided perfect alternatives due to his intimate knowledge of the City.
Fantastic tour locations that were expertly detailed and had first class delivery by our charming guide.
Thanks Ken, we loved our time together on the tour.

excellent tour with a private guide. Good way to be acclimated to Tokyo. Should inform us that we need to pay transportation for the guide however.

We had a fantastic guide with Ken-san. He was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed this trip very much. The agency worked hard to get us to see a stable, despite the teams leaving Tokyo for the next champion-ships

HORRIBLE!!! Not even close to the 107 we paid and not a private tour. First of all we had to pay for the subway tickets ourselves and our guide. Our guide was nice but was not very informative and walked way too fast for our group. Sumo stable consisted of standing outside the stable and looking through a row of windows at their practice session. No place to sit and watch, only standing behind other people and behind a row of people sitting inside the stable.Guide offered no insight into what was going on or how these athletes lived. Next was a walk through Asakusa which we could have just done to ourselves. Again little insight into the temple. The water bus ride only 740 yen-approx 7 was again something you can do on your own. We walked through the gardens 300 yen and then was literally dropped off at the Tsukiji market and our guide immediately left with no info on the market itself. Also we were quoted a 3-4 km walk approx 2.5 mi. We measured our walking at over 13 km 8 mi. Feel totally ripped off...and exhausted.
