Very knowledgeable guide.
The tour of Asakusa was great. We felt like Aquiles was a bit timid and did not mesh with our needs. No real fault of Context, but compared to our other guide, Aquiles needed more enthusiasm and needed to point out more items in the market and explain more to us about local products.
Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. This tour, however, is entirely mischaracterized in your materials and in our email exchange. The large portion of this tour is spent walking down a street that leads to a temple that has some interesting items but is almost entirely targeted at tourists -- Japanese included. There was little sense of a neighborhood or getting a sense of Tokyo, which is how it was described.
