        Lovely way to see the city in the eyes of a local. We had a 4 hour walking tour and even though it was a very wet day, we enjoyed every moment. We say many sights, tried lots of different snacks and took it all the city had to offer. Our guide was very courteous, friendly and went out of her way to help us out with restaurants bookings and recommendation, even after our tour with her had ended. We enjoyed the most: Seeing sights which were off the beaten track. Having matcha in a tatami room after a visit to a quiet garden was by far the most memorable part of the walk.

        I'll keep it short and simple. This was a very good experience. The guide was helpful and knowledgable. He had good communication skills and I would book with this company again.

        Masumi Endo was EXCELLENT. She was in contact with us via e-mail before the trip and was punctual, knowledgeable and flexible regarding itinerary on day of trip. We basically went on a FOOD tour of the city that was SO tasty and fun! On her own time, she came back with us on the subway at the "end of the tour time" to make sure that we got off at the right stop. Above and beyond the call of duty! Highly recommend.
