          One Day tour of Nikko from Tokyo
          Our tour guide was Noby Kono. He was a wonderful guide for our Nikko experience. We saw all the wonderful sights and also learned a lot of history along the way. It was nice to have someone with us to select a great lunch option and also provide recommendations on what we should do and how to treat each sight respectfully. I highly recommend this experience and guide!!!

          Beautiful and Historic Kamakura Tour
          My family and I had a great time on this tour! The Kamakura bus system can be confusing to foreigners and Kono-San did a great job of navigating us through the best parts! He also had great insights into history of the area and Japan overall. We learned a lot! Arigatōgozaimasu! I will note that this is a walking/bus tour so bring comfortable shoes and enough cash for the buses and metro.

          If you only see one temple it should be this one!
          Beautiful temple and not too busy. Great toilet facitilities right across the road at the Car Parking lot. Busy with school children but they are well behaved (Japanese). Allow 2 hours to walk from one of the regional train stations and to explore all of the Temple grounds.

          A good look at Nara
          The trip was interesting and very informative. Our guide was very considerate and helpful. His English was excellent but he spoke softly. He spent time determining just what we wanted to see. He helped us with our ICOCA card and took many photos of us which he transferred to my wife's phone even though it took quite a bit of his time at the end of our tour.

          Why is there no water bus included?
          Tour guide of city was good. There is no water bus included so this is extremely deceiving. Tour name says “with water bus ride” but is it is not true. We had to pay separately. The English announcements could not be heard at all. Skip TripAdvisor tour and get a private tour without water and pay less.

          Ok, but some nutrition advisable
          Pretty good guide Knowledgeable All day metro ticket included Downside - I would have expected breakfast or lunch or at least even a drink to be included at this price point

          Great, comprehensive intro to Japanese history. Shrines and temples beautiful. Fringe benefit of learning how to navigate the train and bus system! Guide was very knowledgeable and patient. I felt like I was traveling with an uncle. Lunch was really good.

          Beautiful parks, sky tree and a building that looks like beer.
          Beautiful parks, temples and interesting things to see (a building that looks like a beer mug). Loved the fish market! Maximize your time and skip the water bus ride. They only do it in Japanese so not worth the time.

          Sweet guide but far from fluent in English
          I am a travel advisor and accompanied several clients on this tour, which I booked only a couple of days before our flights, so kind of last minute. While our guide was very sweet and friendly, he was in no way equipped to give an informative tour in English. He imparted almost zero information or commentary about the history of the town as we walked through Narita's main street to the temple (Q: Can you tell us about this architecture? A: Traditional house."). He did point at several items displayed in front of shops: "Mochi" "Rice crackers" etc. No real context or narrative. We spent almost two hours at the beautiful Shinshoji temple, but he gave us very little info about its history, life at the temple, only the most basic info about Buddhism, etc. "Pagoda" "Smoke for blessing" "Carp" or Q "What is this building?" A: House. Many houses." Q: "What are the drummers performing or what is the meaning of their performance?" A: "Later." We learned what we could about the temple complex by reading the signs in English. He took us to a local place for lunch and helped us order--it was good. But my clients were dismayed at the language skills of the guide--I won't say his knowledge of the temple was limited, because he is a licensed guide and I am sure he knows plenty. He was just unable to communicate much of anything to us in English. As a travel advisor, it was embarrassing to have this guide with my clients and they let me know their disappointment, but fortunately it was not as expensive as some other similar tours. The worst part is that we had just finished two weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia with some of the best guides I have ever had in my 17 years in this business. So this wasn't a good ending to the trip! The other problem was that somewhere on the Viator listing it said that the tour includes private transport (I have the screen shot). It does not. I am perfectly happy to use the train but we had to scramble at the last minute to find airport lockers for our carry on bags, and the yen coins to put into them (we gave a French couple four euros for 600 yen); and then we had to withdraw 10,000 yen from the ATM to pay for 2300 yen in train tickets--the machine only took cash or a specific Japanese card. It would have been nice to know all of this in advance instead of stressing out and wasting time. The guide was extremely nice and warm, and emailed us pictures of us at the temple, helped us do some good luck things there, and chose a good lunch place, so I'm giving this tour three stars rather than two. I am sure he is a treasure if the clients he is guiding speak Japanese. But the agency who sent him should reconsider sending him out to guide clients in English. It was truly one of the least satisfying and least informative tours I have ever experienced.

          great tour with an experienced guide
          Kono san did an excellent job taking me around to see all of the sites on my wish list. He was very knowledgable about the history of the places we visited and explained the customs as well. Kono san was also able to find great photo locations. I wouldn't have been able to fit as much into a single day or been able to use the subway so efficiently without his help. It is a great tour for anyone looking to fit as much into a day as possible with an expert guide to help them make the most of the day

          Tour cancelled without an update from company in a timely fashion!
          We were so excited to take this tour but didn’t get to experience as were informed of no guide 2 hours prior of start time. I was never contacted or emailed regarding any cancellations. I reached out to ask for time of pickup the morning of. The response was that the trip cancelled, can I switch to another day. It was too late to swap to another tour on the same day because all were booked up. I agreed to adjust to the next day and asked if the date change was automatic to the next day. The rep Maya stated no and will confirm my pickup upon booking a new reservation. Unfortunately, there were no available dates for another 48 hours. The options weren’t feasible due to our vacation ending in 48 hours. Had I been notified in a timely fashion I could have possibly found another tour the next day and fulfilled my family’s destination goals. I know things happen but I expected better communication than what I received.

          Great tour, excellent guide!
          I couldn't be happier with our guide, Yumiko. She was so knowledgeable as well as gracious and kind. We enjoyed our day with her. She was always considerate of our needs and handicaps; always checking if we were doing ok. She was very experienced; able to time our excursions with the train schedule. The places we saw were great; she knew the best spots to visit. She really made the day for us. I would book any tour that she was guiding.

          Fantasic Tour, Got Everything On Our List Done
          We planned to stay 12 days in Japan and Tokyo was our first stop. My Wife and I took this tour. I sent a list of places I wanted to see and even time of the day we wanted to see them. We got to see everything we wanted to see when we wanted to see it. Our guide was Noby Kono. He made sure we had tickets for items in high demand prior to the tour. This ensured we got to do everything we wanted. He sent a spreadsheet of all items and timelines (arrival, stay time, departure) ahead of time so we knew exactly what to expect. We traveled all over the city by subway. This was great as Kono-san taught us the subway system and a trick about getting day passes to save time and money. I used this knowledge in other cities we visited. It was a great tour and we even got a history lesson at each stop we visited that again came in handy for other portions of our trip. I would highly recommend one of these tours especially if you want some help getting familiar with the public transportation system around Japan. Big thanks to Kono-san for making this possible.

          Yumiko is the best!
          You are an good hands if you are lucky enough to have Yumiko as your guide! She is super professional and extremely kind. She was prompt in meeting us, and her English was excellent. She custom tailored an itinerary which was not only efficient, but nicely varied with good resting stops along the way. She was extremely knowledgeable, and took the time out to explain Japanese history, cultural relevance, and even current trends. She was highly engaging, and despite being engrossed in conversations, she was always aware of our surroundings, knowing exactly which subway stops and transfers we need to take. We saved a lot of time using her as our expert tour guide instead of trying to navigate ourselves. She was worth every penny, and we could not be more more satisfied with our experience! Highly recommend Yumiko!!

          Most wonderful guide
          Our amazing guide, Yumi, was simply the best. We’ve had a lot of wonderful experiences with tour guides and Yumi is one of our most favorite of all time. We will recommend her to all of our friends and family. Yumi is incredibly kind, extremely friendly, very engaging, and super knowledgeable. We loved getting to spend the day with her and learning more about her beautiful city and home. Yumi helped us understand more about faith, culture, and customs in Japan. Yumi took us all over Tokyo and catered to everything we asked to see and prioritize. We requested some out of the ordinary things and Yumi knew just where to take us and what to do to make it happen. We also requested Yumi join us for lunch at a beautiful restaurant she suggested. It was so nice to have her company and her assistance in ordering, translating, and understanding proper etiquette. There were a few specific things we were hoping to buy and ship home from Tokyo and Yumi helped us make it happen. Yumi helped my daughter be fitted for a lovely kimono and my son find and ship home a replica katana. It would have been so incredibly hard without Yumi’s help. It was extra special to have this memory with her too. We so enjoyed our time with Yumi and wish we got to spend more time with her. If you are hoping to learn more about this incredible country and this awesome city, I highly recommend spending your day with Yumi. She has a wealth of knowledge and is simply wonderful.
