Xavier, a Frenchman who has called Japan home for many years, is fabulous! His wit is engaging, his knowledge of Japan and Tokyo was breathtaking, his style is relaxed, he is very affable, and we have no hesitation to recommend!
Our story, we contacted him at 5am Thursday for the first time ever, via his website, enquirer about his offering, and he collected us at 8:25am, and the day we had was worth every expensive penny!
We travelled to 11 sites, temples, shrines, lookouts, gardens, markets, historic sites all via public transport, walking and he wore us out… it was very enjoyable!
He assisted us plan our remaining stay, beyond his paid time, built our confidence and gave us subway/train skills – to a naive kid from country Australia !
Our family group of seven had a great day today travelling privately with the guidance of Xavier and Uri to Mt Fuji and its surrounds. The weather was perfect, as was our rapport with Xavier and Uri. Everything was relaxed. We did things at our own pace and were well informed. A much better way to see things than on a bus of 40+ people being herded from one photo shoot to another. Thoroughly recommended!
