  Amazing trip to Imperial Palace and Meiji Shrine   We had an absolutely amazing day with Risa san (Risa Sato), our guide. This was one of the highlights of our trip without doubt.  You simply cannot get the same level of information, or interest from a guide book.   I would recommend to everyone!  And on the way to the Imperial Palace, when we were at Tokyo station, we only got to see Emperor Akihito no less! who was arriving at Tokyo station en route to an event.   Awesome!

If there was a rating that was higher than Excellent" then we would give it to Akemi. She is an absolute gem and we thoroughly loved the two days we spent with her. The programs she figured out for us worked very well and we were kept on our toes for two full days.  She is a very fit lady and we became fitter for spending time with her.   Akemi, remember the 23000 steps ;).  We found Akemi to be very friendly and knowledgeable. She was amazing at navigating the train stations - something we would have found nigh impossible. She took us to places we would never have seen ourselves. We especially enjoyed the traditional lunch. It is one of many highlights we will remember for ever . Akemi is such a wonderful lady and we hope to keep in touch with her now we are back in Australia.   Jean

My 22 month old daughter and I had the pleasure of spending the day
with Naoko Dasuze exploring Roppongi Hills,  where we visited the
art museum and observed the city from the Tokyo City Observation Deck.
We also spent time in Midtown Park.   Naoko was also kind enough to
meet us the evening before and show us around the area where we were staying.
She was kind enough to help us get a Pasmo card and give us an introduction
to the Tokyo Metro system. Naoko was patient, knowledgeable and friendly.
I would definitely recommend her as a guide.
Love from London - Aiko & Zara.

April 26/2016 Tokyo tour   We had the pleasure and privilege to spend essentially a whole day with our Tokyo Free Guide Mr. Mitsuo Ogishima.   His depth and breadth of knowledge about Tokyo and Japan in general, including customs/foods and locations was clearly extensive and he very enthusiastically, and in depth, shared this with us.  We learned far more than we expected and enjoyed ourselves immensely.  The day spent with him was the highlight of our Asian trip (5 countries) and we would wholeheartedly recommend his companionship to anyone visiting Tokyo.   Joelle and George R

Our tour guide for two days  was Mayumi Iriko. There were 3 adults and two children in our family group. We suggested places we would like to see, and Mayumi sent us a suggested itinerary.   She was wonderful. Thanks to her friendly nature and good English, she taught us how to use the Metro , how to purchase and top-up a Suica card, and many other things .  After two days with Mayumi, she left us confident to travel on the Tokyo transport system without any fear.  She included things in the itinerary that we didn't mention. These side trips, including one to Harajuku for fashion shopping, was a highlight for our daughter.  She also researched additional things for us to see, such as when one of the children mentioned he would like to see some Judo lessons.   Rita

Best Day Ever!   Thank you!  I am so happy that we found TFG and that Max ( Yoshitake Tajima) was our guide in Tokyo!  We had a lot of fun just planning the trip - emailing back and forth.   I wanted to spend a half-day exploring Akihabara and visit Asakusa during the Sanja Matsuri festival, try some Japanese food and get to know a bit about Japanese daily life.  Max was the best guide, we are so lucky to have met him!  His itinerary was perfect - and he was flexible on the day of the tour, allowing us to see much more than we had hoped.   I can't recommend Tokyo Free Guide enough - it was the highlight of the trip for all of us.  We consider Max our new friend, and we all plan on staying in touch. Could not have been better!  Thank you!   Jeffrey

Kiuko-san, Thank you so much for a perfect day!   Dear Kiuko Sakurai,   I really like to thank you for your company yesterday (5/4/2016)! I loved the peaceful Toyokawa Inari Shrine (and the fox!), the amazing Asakusa (and the "portable" shrines haha...), the perfect river cruise (I enjoyed it very much), the peaceful Hama-Rikyu Gardens (the Fujimiyama Hill looking over the pond though we can no longer see Mt. Fuji from there :)), and the incredibly busy and fun Ueno! It was so perfect (including the super delicious sushi lunch!) I could not imagine or hope for a more perfect day or guide! :)   Again, thank you so much for all your wonderful planning, your time, your graciousness and your friendship!!! :)   Warmest regards, Philip

Phillip Garcia san enjoyed Tokyo with our guide Akiko Muraoka.
