Planning to be in Tokyo for at least 4 days. We would like to request a Goodwill or Tokyo Free Guide for one day, and would like some input on the following:
1) What are some places in Tokyo where we might find it especially useful to be with a local who knows the area, language, culture, and customs? We probably wouldn't want to waste the guide's time browsing in electronic stores in Akihabara all day as it's something we can easily do ourselves. And I would assume that we can get by okay without a guide in more touristy areas where there are likely to be abundant English menus and signs.
2) Anyone with input on SGG (Goodwill Guides) versus Tokyo Free Guides? Or are they the same group?
Thanks in advance for your help. I'm sure you'll be seeing other postings from me in the months to come. Leaving late June!
