What people are saying about Chiba Prefecture

The tour was a great experience. Our driver was very well taken care of our well-being. He told us a lot about Tokyo and Asakussa. Also we were allowed to practice with him in a temple and together the rituals before entering the temple. It was a great tour. Thanks to the guide Tyger

Our guide was very charming and knowledgeable. He had a very clear voice and spoke excellent English. He made the effort to show us interesting shops, such as a wood block engraving studio, which we would have missed without him.

It is my first time in Tokyo and this was a perfect introduction to the city. Tomoko was great - showing me the old and the new - and giving me the background to the sites we visited. This was a great experience.

Was an amazing and excellent experience with the very knowledgeable and friendly Nobu. Would recommend to anyone.

Very enjoyable ride with photo shootings on historical locations.
