◆ Tour Reviews

She is a wonderful and capable person with a deep knowledge of Japan´s history! 
    She was very flexible and has been able to adapt the sightseeing-plan according to our wishes!!!
   - 2 couples (4 adults), 50s and 60s, Germany (May 2019)  ★

    We, 2 couples from Germany visited Tokyo for 3 days in May 2019. 
    For exploring the city and the highlights including a deeper understanding of the history of Japan, 
    we hired Murakami-san as our guide. She is a wonderful and capable person with a deep knowledge of Japan´s history. 
    Murakami-san was very flexible and has been able to adapt the sightseeing-plan according to our wishes. 
    Especially the “Emperor´s Palace” and the surrounding garden´s has been a highlight. 
    Murakami-san knows lot´s of bit´s and pieces about this place and the emperor family. 
    Her Restaurant proposals did fully meet our expectation, fancy places but not too expensive. 
    All in all, Murakami-san was an excellent choice and if we once go back to Tokyo, we would for sure hire her again. 
    She is a great person and we have been so sad when we said Good-bye, waving out of the Shinkansen on our way to Kyoto. 
    We wish Murakami-san and her family all the best!
    (Ryogoku, Katsushika Hokusai Museum, Asakusa, Tsukiji, Imperial Palace, Odaiba and Ginza)

    Professional and organized, great itinerary and great guide 
    -it was a full, satisfying day, seeing a lot, learning a lot, and experiencing a lot, all without feeling rushed or too tired!!!
   - Family (2 adults and 2 children), 10s and 40s, CA, USA (May 2019)  ★

    We took the private Tokyo tour (all-day) our first day in Tokyo.  
 Harumi-san was our guide - we all thought the whole experience with her was EXCELLENT. 
    Not only is Harumi-san very knowledgeable and efficient, her style (soft-spoken, comfortable to be around) worked well with our family
    -- when our younger one got tired of looking at cute pens/ pencils at the crowded shop, Harumi found a quiet spot to do origami with her. 
    Overall, we have truly wonderful memories of our day together in Tokyo, and highly recommend this tour with Harumi-san as guide.

   "Thank you Harumi for a wonderful day!"

    Harumi is a wonderful guide! She helped us learn the train system,
    navigated us efficiently through various sites and was great with our young boys.  
    She even taught them origami during lunch and it was a sweet moment.

    or nurse her and even recommended child friendly restaurants.

 We took great pleasure from the unforgettable sightseeing of Tokyo together with you,
   Madame Harumi. Your deeply knowledge of history and culture of Japan, and also knowledge
   of especially interesting places in Tokyo helped us to know better the city and traditions of its people.
   We are also grateful for the organization of a lunch at such remarkable Japanese restaurant,
   all dishes were very tasty.
   Thank you for the wonderful day in Tokyo! You are the best Guide!

   We hope to return to Japan together with our children, grandchildren and friends in near future
   and we will be glad to sightseeing Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara together with you.
   Also we will be more than happy if you visit to Uzbekistan one more.
   We wish you good luck and hope to see you soon in Tokyo or Tashkent!"

   - Brother's family (2 adults and 2 children), 40s, Chicago and Boston, USA (December 2015)
   We don’t think we would have appreciated Tokyo as much without your insight and guidance.
   You helped us pick all the right places and allowed us to get a sense of the culture
   and history of Japan.  And with three adults and two children in our group,
   I’m impressed that you kept our attention throughout the entire day. 
   Our time with you was definitely a highlight of this trip and we will certainly recommend you
   to our friends. Thank you again! (Yanaka, Asakusa and Tsukiji Market)
