    We told our guide we wanted to see something scenic and experience some Japanese culture, but beyond that we didn't really have a clear idea of what we wanted out of this tour. He then made some suggestions and had some ideas and we happily went along with them. First we rented some bikes very cheaply from a very excited old man in some underground bike rental facility. He was so pleased because he had not had any customers from Norway before, so he insisted on giving us some chocolates as gifts. One of the first stops was a small garden called Kiyosumi Garden. Even though this place was pretty small we actually think it was much nicer, quieter and better kept than the Imperial East Garden we had visited a couple of days earlier. Seemed like a bit of a hidden gem.A bit later we stopped to have lunch at the tiniest restaurant ever, that was just a door into a room with three small tables. No english menu or anything like that. Our guide spoke Japanese, so we were able to order some very traditional Japanese fish-dishes that came with miso soup, rice and some vegetables we have no idea what are called. The food was great, but we struggled a little bit with how to eat this big piece of fish using chopsticks. After a while the lady serving us noticed our struggled and very politely brought us a fork. The whole experience was very nice, the food was good and it was very affordable.Later we were taken around to see many different places, including Ueno Park and the old town. Some of these places we would have never found on our own, such as small temples and shrines. One of the coolest and weirdest experiences was when we went into a small bakery named Vaner that had a menu with Norwegian items like Kanelboller (cinnamon buns) and Surdeigsbrød (sourdough bread). It turns out the owner had studied in Oslo and learned about these things there. We got to meet and greet him and learned that he was also a great fan of heavy metal. Our guide had selected this place based on the background information we had given him, so this made us feel like he was really customizing this tour to match us and not just going through a "fixed script". We certainly enjoyed the experience! We finished of at a nice cafe, drinking coffee and eating ice cream while discussing all manners of topics. Our guide was very helpful and provided all kinds of tips on what to do and where to go during our stay in Japan. He was extremely serviceminded and provided a tour beyond all expectations.

    Our tour was incredible! Our lovely guide Martina was delightful, very friendly & understanding of our needs. She took us to areas on Tokyo that are absolutely beautiful and not yet very well-known by tourists. We felt so lucky to have had to opportunity to visit those hidden gems. Amazing! She was also great with our little 3-year-old, and flexible with our requests. I highly recommend City Unscripted for other families and any other travelers.

    We had the pleasure of Dania as our host in Tokyo. From the moment we met her she was friendly, easy going and super knowledgeable. Dania had a basic plan for the day but was totally flexible with anything we had in mind. She even stuck around a bit longer to help us get to our last location for the day. We all loved Dania, and especially our daughter which is always a win.

    We were a bit nervous taking on Tokyo with a small child but needn’t have worried. Anne-Laure was a complete sweetheart - very good with our daughter and so understanding and kind when we had to make multiple stops (bathroom/ 4-year old hunger detours) along the tour. She even faced the frenzy of KiddyTown with grace and humour. We learnt about Tokyo landmarks and culture, saw a heap of highlights and were able to ask all sorts of question along the way. I really loved having Anne-Lure help us buy commuter passes and teach us how to use the trains and metro well. This saved us heaps of trouble and set us up for lots of confident commuting for the rest of our trip. Thank you!!!
