Are personal tour guides in Tokyo and Kyoto work the cost?

Jump to last reply

I am on my first trip to Japan with my 14 year old daughter this June. I neither speak nor read Japanese. I am wondering about whether or not to engage the services of a personal tour guide for us for a day or part of a day in Tokyo and Kyoto. I am ambivalent because,I don't generally enjoy even brief guided tours of historic sites... however Tokyo sounds to be such a sprawling place , with many different train and subway systems.
I would love to hear people's advice.
Thanks, Louisa
