Anna took us on an uniquely fabulous tour of contemporary and historical Tokyo architecture. Her insights and knowledge provide an historical perspective on life in this city.
We loved our food tour with Chiara. I'm visiting Tokyo with my teenage daughter and it's not always easy to meet a person who manages to create an experience perfect for a teenager and her mom, but, luckily Chiara is amazing. She took us to wonderful restaurants that we never would have found on our own and allowed us to "test" our comfort zone without pushing too far past it. She also was full or recommendations and stories and helped us plan the rest of our trip. Chiara is such a warm, friendly person who really listened to us and gave us a lot of info about Tokyo, both big and small ( for example, did you know that Lush has a section of products that can only be purchased in Japan?). I cannot say enough good things. Highly recommend!!!
We took four Context Tours on this trip and have taken a dozen over the years and this was one of the best. Connected the dots on urban planning, architecture, and society with clever examples. Informative and relevant, not rambling trivia.
