    Hi there

    We are an Australian couple visiting Japan in September and will be spending two separate days in Tokyo. We would like to organise for an English speaking guide to take us on tours of Tokyo.

    About us:

    We are in our mid-late 60s
    My husband uses a manual wheelchair and we would prefer not too much uphill pushing!
    We will be in Tokyo on Sunday 8 September and Thursday 19 September, staying in central Tokyo
    We would like a relaxed tour each day lasting around 6 hours including lunch and coffee stops
    The tour could be a mixture of walking and public transport where accessible for a manual wheelchair

    Could you advise if you would be able to help us. If yes, could you advise hourly rates. If volunteer we are happy to pay for travelling to meet us at our hotel and would of course pay for lunch.

    We have a number of tours for wheelchair users listed here:
    They are all roughly the length you are interested as well.  The staff will help you push your husband as well :)
    Hope this helps!
