Before I booked this tour I was apprehensive about communication. Nonsense! Tour operator spoke English well. Other than being rushed it was great!
Excellent tour! Great guide. She is knowledgeable and very service oriented. The lunch is much better than one would expect on a tour. Overall, this tour is well worth the cost. The only drawback is that they do not include hotel pick-up and drop-off.
Wonderful way to see tokyo in a short time. Loved the Tea ceremony the location was beautiful. The Japanese BBQ lunch was one of the best meals I had in Japan. The hotel that we had the lunch at was so beautiful . I loved visiting temples in Asakusa also!!
Very prefessional and great tour. Worth it!
Doing what: Tokyo Morning Sightseeing Tour
This tour was rushed and didn't cover anything well as a result... The tea ceremony was very good, but the Tokyo tower, Imperial Palace and cruise were all too quick and we didn't get to see or understand anything fully. Lunch was great, but again, we had to move on without getting to enjoy (or even see) the gardens and venue. It should drop at least one activity in order to better enjoy the others.
A great insight to Tokyo City in a day! Tour guide was friendly and professional. Gave us a detailed guide of the places that we visited.The western meal served during lunch was great with a nice view of Tokyo Bay. Highlight of the tour was the 45 mins Tokyo Bay Cruise which was very enjoyable and scenic. Remember to go to the deck to enjoy the cool breeze and spectacular Tokyo Bay view.
Over all it was a good tour.
Very good tour. Guide was insightful and very helpful. Just a pity that weather was no good and we couldn't go up to the 5th station.
Nice way to spend the afternoon. I've been to Asakusa before but in a different season so it was nice to see it with the fall leaves changing. The river cruise is relaxing and scenic. Our guide, Junko, was great. She really kept our group together and informed and on time.
This tour packs several diverse experiences into one long day. The Tokyo Tower was okay, the tea ceremony and garden tour were slightly better than expected and the cruise was a big waste of time. On the plus side, the Japanese Barbecue lunch was way above expectations! You get picked up at your hotel and then brought to a bus terminal to get on your tour bus. At the end of the day you're dropped off at the Tokyo Station so don't forget to bring your JR Pass with you.
The tour was interesting but the Bay Cruise nothing informative.
The cultural tour like the Meiji temple, Asakusa Temple and the Palace Garden was short. There was no time to absorb the beauty of these structures. More time was spent on the Tokyo Bay Cruise. Fine dining was not necessary for lunch. The tour guide gave very little valuable information.
I hadn't planned on doing a tour during my trip to Japan but stumbled across your tour while searching for activities in Tokyo. It was really worthwhile and I had a great time. I was met promptly at the agreed upon meeting spot and we stopped at other hotels to pick up other folks for various tours. Taken to the bus station to meet up with the tour guide, Takai (sp?). There were only 3 of us on this tour-which was a great. Takai had lived in New York, spoke excellent English and had a great, outgoing personality-perfect for this type of job. He walked us through the fish market and pointed out various foods/fish and after about an hour there, we went to the Sushi school. It was not a tourist racket but an actual school, we were the only Non Japanese in the place. Learned how to filet a fish, and to make Maki, Nigiri and handrolls as well as Tamago. It looks so simple but it takes years to master and while I probably wont be making Sushi at home, (cant' get good quality fish here where I live)-at least I'd be willing to try now. Afterwards, Takai helped us out with where we planned to go next-and walked me to my train station (definitely needed that assist). I made the arrangements online and had no problem whatsoever..and would use Viator's services again. The hardest part for me was getting to the initial meeting spot since I was staying an hour outside Tokyo and had to navigate the train system with transfers during rush hour to get to the hotel to meet up with our guide! Now THAT was an adventure.
Great way to see Asakusa and the surrounding districts on both land and water.
I had a great fun and educational day at the tsukiji market and making my own sushi lunch. my companion for the day Yuko was fun to hang out with and was very helpful. I had a terrific day with her and would recommend your service without hesitation. g (31718957)
