This was the perfect full day tour in Tokyo. With the ability to customize as needed, we were able to hit all the spots we wanted to. and spend more time on things that interested us. Mitch was a great guide, and was able to provide plenty of useful information about everything we saw. We used public transportation and the tour included a rechargeable IC card that we have been topping up and using for the remainder of our trip. The included lunch was based on our preferences and was a local place we never would have found on our own, and it was delicious. A fantastic experience all round. Highly recommended.

Not sure how to express just how much we enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Silvia, became a friend by the end of the day. We wanted her IN our pictures, not taking them of us. Because of some travel/life logistics we only had a couple days for our first visit to Tokyo (after 3 weeks in SE Asia) and we thought this tour would be the way to go. The price seemed steep at first but I assure you we received every penny and more in value! We saw so much of the city. Places and things someone on a big tour (or on their own) would never see. Using public transport is a great way to do it. You move around briskly without delays and really get a feel for the culture. We absolutely fell in love with the city and are already dreaming of our return. Meg (owner) and Silvia are a BIG reason why.

Thanks to Meg for a wonderful day out in Tokyo.

We gave her our itinerary and she worked the timings so that we did everything we wanted and then some.

Even managed to fit in a journey on the bullet train......thankfully the day before the typhoon !

Would highly recommend

Meg did a fantastic job meeting us at our hotel and taking us to the sites we selected. She helped us learn to use the subways and trains. We had a wonderful sukiyaki lunch, visited a shrine and a temple. Her English was great and she explained how we could accomplish our other travel goals. We would highly recommend her to family and friends. She was everything we hoped for.

Booking this tour with Meg was the best decision we made. This tour was our favorite tour that we did during our trip. Meg tailored the tour to our specific interests and was so knowledgeable about all of the questions we had about Tokyo. On our next trip to Japan, we plan to contact Meg for another tour. We learned so much and had a fantastic time.

Our guide, Meg, made this entire day one that we will never forget. She is knowledgeable about every aspect of life in Tokyo and took care of us in an exceptional way. Not only did she guide us but she took photos for us throughout the day. At her suggestion we ended our tour with a street festival that we would have never known existed. One of the best tour experiences we have ever had!

We were very fortunate to have Aya as our guide for our visit to Tokyo. She’s a GEM! In addition to visiting tourist sites, shrines, temples, and the royal garden we wanted to see the “real” Tokyo, so Aya guided us through neighborhoods visiting small shops and eateries, engaging us in banter with the clerks and trades people. Her English is excellent and she enjoyed sharing the history and background of what we were seeing. It was a fine day and an outstanding beginning to our vacation in Japan.

Aya is a perfect tour guide. she came to the hotel on time.
She is an expert in directions, exits and entrances, but we spend most of the time moving from metro to another metro. After booking the tour, the orgainzer sent an email contained a lot of choices to choose four of them. Most of the choices were malls and shopping streets !! so you can visit them alone. I told them I like history so we decided to visit 4 places: Meiji Jingu, a Buddhist temple and Odaiba (shopping mall), the fourth place I don't remember it because we couldn't visit it because we don't have time !! I asked them to visit imperial palace but they told me it isn't allowed for us to enter it you can see it from the outside !!. Forget any thing was written in the description of this tour about visiting imperial palace. the restaurant was a Japanese restaurant and was very good, but we spend a lot of time in the restaurant. I finished my food and Aya too but we didn't move, actually I don't know why, which waste our time and we couldn't visit the fourth place. At least Aya was a nice person so I will give these two points to Aya. My advice save your money and time and do it on your own.
