    My husband and I are big fans of anime and Japanese culture. Thus we knew that we wanted to explore Akihabara. It can be pretty overwhelming for a first timer so having a personalized guide was incredibly helpful! I tend to do larger group tours but having a private guide to show us the ins and outs was amazing. Jordyn was knowledgeable, engaging and she provided us with a lot of insight and guidance. It was wonderful exploring through the eyes of a local. I loved that the tour company sent us questions prior to our tour to help guide our experience while also including their recommendations. We were able to take what we learned from the experience with us when we returned on our own to explore. I would highly recommend this tour as well as any other of the City Unscripted tours as having a local guide really helps to navigate this wonderful country.

    Leo is the perfect guide for this Otaku culture tour. I sent him information ahead of time about what I was interested in, and he customized an itinerary that went way beyond my expectations. He took me through several of the top nerd sites in both Akhihabara and Harajuku. He also provided cultural and historical explanations throughout the tour. If you're interested in learning more about Japanese quirky, pop culture, then this is the tour for you. Be sure to request Leo as your guide!

    It’s as if a good friend took you around town. Jordyn speaks perfect Japanese, English and French, knows a lot of fun places to go and will go out of her way to make this a truly memorable experience! Fun and easy to talk to and will make you feel welcome in Tokyo even if you don’t speak a word of Japanese.

    Our family met with Tarek, who is fluent in English. He was pretty cool and laid back. Our only request for our tour was to see the Akrihabara district and learn the train stations, and how to take the train around Tokyo. Our short tour with Tarek was informative, relaxed, off the cuff, and "unscripted."
