excellent tour guide!

My daughter and I had a long layover in Tokyo and decided to take a tour of the city. We had Machiko as our tour guide and she was wonderful! She messaged me thorough whats app days before our arrival and had very clear communication and asked what we wanted to do in Tokyo and gave us her thoughts as well as we requested. She gave me information about the airport and where to store my luggage. I did the private tour on public transportation and I think it would have been difficult in such a short time period to go without a tour guide. She met me at the airport and we went on the train and got to see a temple and some shrines and other parts of the city we were interested in. She was very well prepared and shared a lot of information and history with us. She explained a lot of the customs which was very helpful. Overall it was a customized tour that I was so happy with! Machiko as a tour guide is excellent and I had no problems understanding her with her accent. She was very professional and fun and went out of her way to make sure we got what we wanted out of the tour. I would highly recommend her !!
Expert Guide!

Hiroko Chiba is an excellent guide with a "we can do anything you want" attitude. We went to 3-4 big areas in Tokyo and she had something interesting to say at every corner. We also never had to worry about train navigation or asking for directions. Hiroko also booked our reservation to Team Laps Planet for the next day... She went above and beyond for us! Thank you Hiroko!

5 out of 5 stars!!
Amazing Service

Ms. Hiroko was amazing! My brother and I did a full day tour on public transportation and were blown away with her kind demeanor, helpful advice, and willingness to go above and beyond. We visited Meiji shrine, walked through Harajuku, ate at Tsuijki Market, visited the Tsuijki Temple, toured through Asakusa, and ended at Golden Gai and Omonde Yokocho.

Ms. Hiroko extended our tour time because I lost track of time, which is the opposite of most tours that I have been on. I was so impressed with her, and we will definitely be doing this tour again in the future.
Awesome experience

I had a great tour with Yoshi who was able to meet my requirements for what I wanted out of the tour. He was able to answer my questions and help me find restaurants that I can make reservations for a large party.
