I am a real  Parisian and have been in Japan for sixteen years, after having traveled all over the world. my name is Marc Paris

It is here that I finally decided to put my suitcases motivated by the desire to see my children grow up and to share with them every precious moment. Now that they have gained autonomy,

I seized the opportunity to bounce back and get into the business of tourist guide.

I know almost every neighborhood in Tokyo because I have walked its streets, exploring every corner.

Marc was excellent in providing us an introductions to the many sights of Tokyo. We thought 4 hours was a long time but we barely scratched the surface. There were so many things to do and so many places to see. But he was able to help us navigate the complicated Metro system and provided us with very helpful tips on how to maximize our time in Tokyo. Having kids of his own, Marc was able to engaged skillfully with our daughter and made the experience even more meaningful for us. If your looking to explore Tokyo for the first time or take your sight seeing to the next level. You will be in good hands with Marc Paris. Merci Beaucoup

Marc was a superb Tokyo guide--prompt, knowledgeable, engaging, charming, and honest. He willingly and thoughtfully arranged our to our interests and desires, and gave us many ideas for additional activities and sites that a one day with him could not accomplish. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone--first time or repeat visitor to Tokyo.

Marc is AMAZING!!!! If you want someone to show you Tokyo like a local would see it, or visit the most touristy attractions with insider knowledge on how to avoid the crowds all with a kind, personable and knowledgeable expert... then Marc is your man!!! He did all that I asked to what we wanted to do and see and I provided very little direction. Plus, I had teenagers and he was able to interact with them in such a positive way that they thoroughly enjoyed our day together and never complained once. They actually asked for more days with Marc. You cannot go wrong. I know when I come back first call I make is to Marc to understand what we should plan next! I would give ten stars if I were allowed.

Had a fantastic tour of Tokyo with Marc. His extensive experience of living in Japan really made the tour highly entertaining and informative. From the best places to eat around our location in Shinjuku, to some great viewpoints in downtown Tokyo (avoiding the usual tourist haunts), made the experience absolutely memorable! Highly recommend!

Mit Marc, unserem Guide haben wir Orte, Architektonisches, Restaurants und wunderbare Ausblicke gesehen, die wir in dieser Zeit (8h) niemals selber entdeckt hätten - und alles ohne lange Warteschlangen! Echte Geheimtipps! With Marc, our guide, we saw places, architecture, restaurants and wonderful views that we would never have discovered ourselves in this time (8 hours) - and all without long queues! Real insider tips!

I recently had the pleasure of exploring Tokyo with an outstanding tour guide, and it was an experience I’ll cherish forever. From the moment we met, my guide Marc passion for Tokyo’s history, culture, and hidden gems shone through. Not only was my guide Marc informative, but he also made the experience incredibly enjoyable with his warm demeanor and sense of humor. They effortlessly navigated me through Tokyo’s intricate public transportation system, ensuring we maximized our time exploring rather than getting lost.

The experience of having a picknick under the Sakura trees was amazing and Marc did a fantastic job securing a spot for us. However, this tour is extremely overpriced. To pay more than 400 euro for a lunch is just tooo much and we even had to pay for our own metro-tickets. Big fail for Viator, but would hire Marc back privately without a doubt!

An excellent tour of specific sites in Shibuya with some added visits to beautiful and significant historical sites. Our guide gave us perspectives and views of Tokyo which were informative and enlightening. In addition he helped us with a specific request to purchase a kitchen knife.

Marc was the most fabulous guide. He is so knowledgeable about all the different neighborhoods in Tokyo and is very open to hearing your ideas and working with your interests so you can get the most from the experience. Our tour was just me and my 11-year old daughter. Marc made it so much fun! It was actually her birthday and we took her for a special lunch along the way and found some great little shops and lookout points around the City. Marc was even kind enough to meet up with us and his own daughter later in our trip and our kids had so much fun hanging out. We got to visit more authentic places and parts of the City off the beaten track for us. This tour and the time we spent with Marc and his daughter afterwards were the absolute highlight of our trip. I highly recommend it!! I just hope you can walk fast, haha!

Marc took us to some places we would never have even thought of going to and really made a great day for our holiday! After the tour he even sent us some recommendations for other places to visit for the next few days of our trip!

We had fun with Marc on our tour through Tokyo. He was good at knowing off the beaten path recommendations, but even better filling in the time in between the sights with interesting stops. He was interesting and fun and we would highly recommend him.

I would to thank Marc for the incredible personal tour of Tokyo. It was an absolute fun spending those six hours exploring the city with him. His extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for Tokyo truly made the experience exceptional. Not only did we manage to cover so much ground within 6hrs time frame, but i also had the opportunity to experience the local culture. The highlight for me was undoubtedly visiting the local office workers' eating place. It was a unique and authentic experience that allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of Tokyo's daily life. Again, I thank you and wish your dream comes true on your sharing of Okinawa.

This was a wonderful experience on an experience of a lifetime trip. Marc made the experience enjoyable and educational. We learned so much about the Japanese culture and what made it the best was that he tailored it to what we wanted and what was important to us to see. You can’t go wrong with this tour. Thanks Marc!!!

Marc was a fantastic guide and would recommend him to anyone wanting a guide in Tokyo! He took us places we would never have found on our own but also took us to a couple of places like the Skytree at the end of our tour where we could look on our own after our tour was finished

This really is an insider’s view on Tokyo! Marc was amazing with his in depth knowledge and completely tailored our experience for our children, who are about the same age as his own. He made it an eternally memorable introduction to Tokyo, and we’ve kept talking about his insights and all we did. It was super fun - in both English and French. If I ever move to Tokyo, If spend a week with Marc and then ask him to be on call for the following months!!!

We had a wonderful time with Marc yesterday. He helped us orientate ourselves around Tokyo in relation to where we were staying and helped us understand the train system. We went to the fish markets, Ginza and walked the streets of a number of shopping areas which was great! We also had the best dumplings I have ever had for lunch in a place we would never have found on our own!

Marc was so knowledgeable and took us to places we never would have found on our own. We were able to bypass tourist lines and go to places only locals would know about. Marc had a lot of special ideas no other guides would have taken us on saving lots of time and money and we had a fabulous time exploring the city with him! Make sure you get Marc as your guide!

My guide was Marc Paris, he was very friendly, we covered a lot of ground chancing upon some surprising sights and his knowledge of the area of Tokyo was spot on, finished the tour at an izakaya bar, which he was friends with the owner, highly recommend.

Marc was great. His fast-paced tour of Tokyo with a few unique twists was exactly what we wanted since we only had 4 hours to see the city. He was fun and pleasant to be with and exceeded our expectations.

We booked a tour with Mark and we are lucky we did. Mark is very knowledgeable and experienced as a guide. Only thing we regret is that we picked only 3 hours tour. It took me couple weeks reviewing taken pictures to realize how many places we visited and how much we learned in those 3h. Thanks, Mark. On another note, on that day my steps count exceeded the one I had on a hike in Grand Canion. Wow!

My wife and I visited Tokyo on a one day stop from our cruise ship. when we booked the trip, we were sent a questionnaire asking what we wanted to see. Since we were unfamiliar with Tokyo, we left the itinerary up to the guide. We met Marc at a train station not far from where our ship was docked. We walked the streets of Tokyo, toured the Meiji Jingu Temple, visited an outdoor food market are where we sampled and purchased several delicious items. Later we visited the Ginza shopping district. Marc was a great guide, he was able to provide good insight on living and working in Tokyo. He was able to answer any questions we asked. Definitly would recommend.

Abbiamo fatto un tour di 4 ore con Marc. Il tour è stato molto piacevole e per niente pesante. Un nota la merita la nostra guida Marc, simpatico, molto preparato, il tempo con lui è volato. We did a 4 hour tour with Marc. The tour was very pleasant and not at all

 

 

difficult. Our guide Marc deserves a note, friendly, very knowledgeable, the time with him flew by.

In our 3-hour tour around Tokyo, our guide Marc led us to both popular sights and hidden gems. More of a feeling the vibe of the city rather than a typical history tour. If you get the chance, I definitely recommend it.

It was a personalized tour by finding the small locations in the very large city. Little and peaceful places not accesible to everyone due to the specific location not easy reachable.
