Tokyo Skytree, Asakusa and Central Tokyo Sightseeing Tour

Tokyo, Japan

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was an excellent tour for what I really wanted which was priority entry to the Skytree. Not only did I not have to stand in a long line to get tickets but as a pre-booked group we also by passed a very long line waiting to board the elevators. The group also had priority parking right behind the temple in Asakusa which meant we had more time to see the sights.

I was a little disappointed that these were the only two actual stops. I had not realised we would just drive past the other sights on the coach. Not very good for photos especially if you are on the wrong side! It did mean I had to make a trip to go see the Imperial Palace another day.

There is an option at the end of the tour to stay at the Skytree. I recommend this as there are many shops and food options (as well as an Aquarium which I did not visit) The Skytree has access to the subway so easy to get back under your own steam. Also a shuttle bus which went straight to Tokyo Station if you are staying in that area.

My Review

Very well organised. Chose green class which was very quiet and comfortable. Worth the extra for making a once in a lifetime trip extra special especially as it is quite a long day. Lunch in hotel on arrival was excellent exceeding expectations, three courses with western and Japanese options - the coffee jelly was amazing!

Tour guide was informative. The three stops were interesting with a decent amount of time at each. However, do expect a bit of a climb (about 10 mins) to reach the final temple. There are also a fair number of steps through out the tour. Notably at the final stop where there were no hand rails and we could not find any alternative access so do bear this in mind if taking a buggy or if this might be an issue for someone in your party.

My Review

Excellent tour. Meeting point was easy to find near a subway. Tour was a nice mixture of walking and mini bus so able to cover a lot of ground and see diverse neighbourhoods. The food was interesting, most of it new to me, and the portion sizes were generous. Tour information was interresting and guide and bus driver both very good at what they did. Highly recommend.

My Review

Got far more to eat than was expected. Also a nice range of dishes and a couple of alcoholic drinks as well as coffee and plenty of water. Also got to see a few places would not otherwise have seen, including a cigar store, an art deco lobby. Tour info gave some good comtext. They work in partnership with the art deco welcome centre and recommend those tours if you want more architectual detail.

Jungle Island Miami

My Review

Highlight of this was definately the lemur activity. Had a full 45 minutes with the lemurs, they are really used to people and will climb all over you. Got some great photos and keeper was informative, friendly and helpful. Jungle Island itself was smaller than I expected better for younger children but this does mean you can see all threee shows easily and make sure you have plenty of quarters as there are quite a few opportunities to feed the animals. Not many food options for but free transport was a real benefit.
