    Excellent guide who provided the perfect tour of old and new Tokyo with a few hidden gems! Ayaka couldn't have been more informative and helpful. We really enjoyed our time with Ayaka and felt we had come to know Tokyo much more than if we hadn't taken the tour!

    Maruf, a great guide, gave me a glimpse of Tokyo. From Temples to popular shopping strips out of the way, lunch spots, plus much more. All in the allotted time with a running commentary loaded with local stories. Maruf went the extra mile to ensure I had a great tour.
