Atsuko was a great tour guide. She had great local knowledge and introduced me to some locations I would not have found. She was warm and friendly and really added to my experience of visiting Tokyo. Atsuko also added historical and cultural aspects into the tour which I would not have experienced without her, to give a more intimate cultural connection.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your fantastic review. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour with me. Your next trip is Iceland. Have a nice time and enjoy traveling! Please come back to Tokyo near future again!

Perfect start to my stay in Tokyo. Atsuko is great company and we had the best ramen. I had been to Tokyo before but saw places I didn’t find in any guide books. You can tell Atsuko what things or kinds of things you want to see or experience. She will offer good ideas if you just don’t know. Highly recommended.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your wonderful review.I'm so glad that you enjoyed tour and I appreciate your prompt review! Can you see Mt.fuji today? I hope you saw clearly with nice fine weather. Please enjoy your trip in Japan and Asia!!

We have been on a half-day tour with Atsuko. The tour was prepared according to our wishes.

Atsuko told us a lot about Tokyo and the places we visited and made us familiar with the public transport system so that we had no problems later on when we explored the city on our own's initiative.

Everything was perfect - a big recommendation!

5 stars Mark V. 27 Sep 2017

I spent 2 days with Atsuko and although we had prepared an itinerary prior to my arrival in Tokyo, it was adjusted to suit our time & my ability to visit destinations alone, alternative options were always offered.

I would not have seen & experienced as much of Tokyo as I did without Atsuko.

I intend to return in April 2018 & will certainly ask Atsuko to be my guide once again.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for your fantastic review. I've learned a lot from you like damask steel knife etc.. It was a great time spending with you in Tokyo. I'm looking forward to meeting you again! Thank you!

5 stars David H. 07 Jul 2017

Atsuko was the perfect guide for our full day in Tokyo. We greatly appreciated the thought she put into our itinerary. We saw a great variety of places that more than met our expectation. Atsuko's friendly nature and great conversation just added to the very positive experience. I would recommend Atsuko as a great guide in Tokyo.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for great review David! I had a really good time with you. I was impressed that you and your son knew Japanese cultur and things. I am glad you like the tour because I made unique tour upon your request. I am more than happy you enjoyed it.

5 stars Ruben M. 26 May 2017

Atsuko is a wonderful guide. She is easygoing and pleasant to be with. Besides the places she showed me, she took me for lunch to this small restaurant where "the locals" eat, which otherwise I would not have had the opportunity to experience. Highly recommended!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for wonderful review. I'm glad you like the local restaurant. It was my pleasure to be your guide. I like your cat and enjoy beautiful gardening. Thank you again.

She was very nice. Asked a lot of things and took my interest into account for the tour. She also told me a lot about the history of the things we saw.

Overall a great experience.
