The start to our family's visit to Tokyo was made perfect by the time we spent with our guide, Suzuki-san. He gave us a thorough introduction to the old (e.g., Senso-ji, Meiji Jingu) and the new (e.g., Tsukiji Market, Harajuku) of the great city of Tokyo. He was, of course, very knowledgeable about his city; but beyond this, he was organized, friendly, and efficient - we definitely got the most "bang for our buck" as possible. In addition, he helped us learn the world class, but potentially overwhelming, Tokyo subway/train system, and helped us learn about the value of the ever-useful Pasmo card (possibly the most important thing to get when visiting Tokyo - seemingly accepted everywhere as payment, not just the public transportation). We toured ourselves around this magnificent city for the next few days - but our experience would not have been nearly as excellent without meeting Suzuki-san, who is a perfect ambassador for this great city.

The guided walk we booked with Lokafy was really excellent. Our guide for three hours in Tokyo was Romana and we really enjoyed our time with her. She collected us at our hotel, took us around our local area for a short time then we headed by metro to another area of the city. She showed us some great places in our time together. Some places were with a view to us spending some further time there after our tour with her. This was a great introduction to a new city. It was a very different experience from a group walking tour but was more enjoyable. I would recommend Lokafy as an organisation and will use them again on future trips. If you use them in Tokyo, ask for Romana as she is a great guide.

Our guide A was beyond exceptional! We just loved her. She is kind, generous, helped us to navigate a complex ticket purchase that had stumped us (which was not easy), and took us all over Tokyo in a day. An also took us to the most delicious sushi lunch I’ve ever had. This was a ten-star tour thanks to a top-notch and friendly guide. Thank you so much for everything An!! From Zoila, Tyler, and Luke

Absolutely loved every minute of our food tour. Michie made us feel very welcome and gave an amazing insight into the street food around Shibuya. We learnt the history behind multiple foods, as well as learning lots about the Culture of Japan in it’s whole. We couldn’t recommend this experience enough. Thank you so much Michie for the amazing evening! Zakk and Sam :)

Ivana was our photographer in Tokyo and the photos of my mum and i turned out very well capturing both posed and candid photos the way we wanted. She is professional and easy to work with and she knew all the best places to capture those memories though some walking required. We had a lot of fun throughout. Highly recommend this activity!
