My friend, Linda, and I are settling back in the States and I wanted to take a moment to thank you and Michelle for all your patience, help and support in coordinating our independent travel to Japan. We had a fantastic time and I have to say the advance coordination that Samurai Tours provided was a major factor in assuring a smooth, safe and fun trip. Tanaka-san, who met us at Narita, was very helpful. I am afraid that without him we would have been lost, exhausted and frustrated right off the bat. Locating the JR office at Narita and exchanging our rail pass vouchers for our passes would have been our first and immediate challenge. He got us through this easily, provided explicit information on our future travel and tickets and got us on the limousine bus into the city quickly and easily. Charlie-san, our tour guide in Tokyo on Day 1, was phenomenal. He was very patient and kind. He took the time to explain things to us so the entire remainder of our trip we were well equipped to operate on our own. He really set us up for success. We quickly acclimated to the public transportation system, exchanging tickets for earlier trains with ease when we wanted to throughout our stay. In Kyoto, I feel I became a "certifiable expert" on the entire public transportation system in a matter of hours. We got around easily by bus, subway and train and I thank Charlie-san for the initial "training" he provided for this success (in addition to his wealth of knowledge about everything we saw and experienced in Tokyo). Linda and I are incredibly grateful to him and I hope you can let him know how much we appreciate him. I consider Samurai Tours instrumental in making our independent travel to Japan so much easier than I imagined it would be. Thank you so much for your patience and assistance throughout our planning time and our trip. I will always recommend Samurai Tours to anyone I know who travels to Japan.
