What our guests say
Booking with Tokyo Greeters was the best decision we took. Kiyo was kind, charming and he prepared an excellent tour for us in Shibuya. He speaks perfect Spanish, so we didn’t have any problem understanding him. My boyfriend and I keep a great memory about him and his tour.
Grâce à la qualité des commentaires de notre Greeter et à son excellente connaissance de la ville, j’ai découvert une ville dont j’ignorais la richesse architecturale, bien qu’habitant à quelques kilomètres seulement.
It was a most wonderful day. I learned so much about the area and got to see a fantastic Japanese Garden, a splendid array of architectural gems and most of all suggestions for return visits to the area. That is a national treasure!!
