Latest reviews from our guests

    We arrived in Tokyo as first-time visitors to Japan on Sunday night and Yuko picked us up at our hotel on Monday morning for a tour. My 17yo daughter is very interested in the pop culture of Japan and Yuko had done her research to show us all the great spots in Harajuku. She balanced that out with a trip to Meiji-jingu shrine where we learned about more traditional Japanese culture. I wish I had Yuko with me for the rest of this trip! I highly recommend City Unscripted trips and Yuko.

    Our tour guide Michael R. Made great use of our 4 hours tour, before we had to catch our flight. Took us to see cultural and new age Tokyo. He is very knowledgeable in Japanese culture. We had our 5yr old with us. And Michael was very patient and understanding when my 5yr old wanted to quit walking. He even took family photos for us! Definitely get a tour guide to take you around Tokyo. You will get to experience a lot more than doing it by yourself.

    Michael was a great and patient tour guide. He knew a lot about the culture and places he took us. He even took family pictures for us. Since we didn’t have much time before our flight, He made good use of our time. We were able to see cultural spots, and new era Japan. Best of both worlds all in 4 hours. Thank you for the great experience!

    Janet was great! Knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to talk to. She showed me the restaurants, street art and river walk around Naka Meguro station. I had a fantastic time.
