I'm going to start with rating the tour, tour guide, and the value of the East Tokyo Tour as 5 stars out of a possible 5 stars. So if you want the best tour of this part of Tokyo, you don't need to read any further. Just book the tour! The tour is perfect for the first time or repeat visitors. I loved the tour for many reasons. Let's start with the guide. Yuri was nothing short of amazing. As an American who only speaks English, I could understand every thing she was explaining. Her knowledge of the fish market and temple was immense. She took the time to explain and answer any question I had. I particularly will always remember Yuri telling me how to prepare and purify myself before entering the temple and how to make sure the God would be able to find me to answer my prayer. I felt entirely safe! I knew with Yuri by my side there was no way I could get lost in one of the largest cities in the world. I was able not to just see the sights but also to experience them as a native and

The day was absolutely first class and could not have wished for better. It was a full on day with many interesting places visited. Emiko had a fantastic knowledge of Tokyo and it was very evident that she is passionate about sharing her knowledge with others. She was fun to be with and went out of her way to ensure we had the best time that we could. If all of guides are like her then you certainly will have a great business

Kyoko was wonderful. It was more like spending the day with a girlfriend than taking a tour. She was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. She even suggested that I ride the river boat from our last spot to the Hama-rikyu Gardens so I could enjoy the gardens. What a great idea. I rested on the boat and enjoyed the scenery and then spent a good hour wandering around the gardens. Five stars and many thanks to Kyoko for a really fun day!
