Guy our tour guide was amazing his love of Tokyo was contagious and his happy and positive nature was everything we could have wished, to be honest I wish hadn't wasted my time on other tours who were not interested and just booked him for a second day.
So Guy picked us up from our accommodation on time, opened all the doors and chatted away happily about all the areas we were interested in, We were travelling with two teenagers so he asked if we would like to make it back to the restaurant where Kill Bill was filmed highlight indeed
The first stop was the Tsukji Fish Market, we were luck enough be one of the last to see this at its old location, he gave us some wonderful tips and told us to take our time loved this never looking at this watch and that he would be were we left him he also gave us his portable WIFI another massive high with teenagers. The fish market was amazing and never once did we worry about time!!
Next stop Guy changed about our intinerary as he was concered since it was a Saturday we should do the Sky Tree before the lines get to long. Again he found us a close drop off and said see you when your ready. Because of his decision to take us here first we certainly didn't wait in line for a long time and the photos from this location were fantastic.
Again Guy was there when we were finished and he took us off the the Sensoji Temple this was literally breath taking Guy offered some advice about getting on and when we jumped out the car he opens all the doors he asked if we would like him to get some water for us!! I mean he was truly a private tour offering care and consideration. We wandered the small shops on the way to the temple and he had educated us on the prayer ritual so we were able to really enjoy this temple at our own time.
We did a quick trip to the Edo Museum but to be honest the afternoon was the highlight for the kids, lunch at Gonpachi Kill Bill filmed here he dropped us to the front and was there when we had enjoyed some fabulous skewers Japanese style. Guy never once looked at this watch and or tried to give an end time for this tour so he took us off Shibuya and the busiest crossing in the world.
We spent lots of time here, he told us the best vantage points and said take as long as you need I will be here when your ready. Shibuya is simply buzzing and knowing this amazing guide was waiting for us we ventured into the side roads and checked out the food and love hotels he has explained to us in the car.
We feel like we won the lotto getting this guide, he is simply such a nice guy who loves Japan, has a wealth of information and nothing was an issue for him.
I would suggest that he offers far more than some of the higher cost tours and we should know as we had a terribly disappointing experience with another tour at twice the price.
This tour you choose what you wish to see and he makes sure your day is something to remember. From our family he is by far the best tour guide we have ever encountered and would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of travelling to Japan.
Guy also gave us some great ideas for our off days and without him we would not have had the special experience we ended up having in Japan.
Thanks Guy you are certainly the best tour guide ever!!!!!!!
