This tour was an excellent way to get oriented in Osaka and see some of the bigger tourist attractions. The guide was friendly and spoke great English. She gave a thorough overview of the city, and was good at keeping everyone engaged.

This tour was our introduction to Japan. We got to overlook the city from 173 m sky tower - spectacular views! Our guide was very helpful and informative. Osaka Castle is well worth going to see.

We are now on our way back to Australia after doing 6 Viator tours in Japan and I cannot recommend Viator tours more highly. It was easy to book/pay online and great to read other people's reviews which helped in making tour choices. Every tour was good value for money, well organised and had excellent guides and covered all the places we wanted to see. I will definately be booking with them for future overseas trips.

Indeed an invigorating and truly refreshing kind of tour. My family and I enjoyed the sights while on a walking tour. The Osaka River Cruise is really interesting and the sight is heavenly as we see cherry blossoms line in bloom on both sides.

We were met promptly by our guide and immediately took off to a fascinating walking tour along with a subway ride. The highlight, a visit to a high-rise building with a observation deck permitted an expansive view of the entire city. By the time we had lunch I felt that the overview of the city was achieved. Lunch was in a 'french' restaurant in the Osaka Train Station and a pleasant break in our walking allowing the rest of weary feet. After lunch more walking, really that is the only way to see local color that was the objective of the tour.

We were then taken to a river cuise for a relaxing view of the bustle of the city and more skyline perspective. Over all, it was a comprehensive day of seeing this very hectic city.

I expected a walking tour to most of Osaka's attractions but we walked mostly going to the subway and out,, the stations being located quite a distance from the attraction itself and we started late. Anyway, from our meeting place in Granvia Hotel Osaka, we walked to the nearby Umeda Sky building after which we went back to Granvia Hotel for lunch. After lunch, we took the subway to Temmabashi Station where we walked towards
the main tower of the Osaka Castle. We went up to the 5th floor(the elevator is only for going up) and you have to go down on foot as you browse through the museum but since we were given only a few min, there wasn't enough time to see everything. From there, we walked towards the pier located a good distance at the back of the castle for the river cruise. It was the nicest part of the tour which lasted almost an hour. Then we went back to our respective hotels by subway again.

Great tour guide, captured the highlights, in retrospect should have spent the afternoon on something other than the river cruise, enjoyed everything but the river cruise did not really provide much to the tour. It was a relaxing moment but not all that interesting compared to seeing other high lights in a limited timeline.

The walking tour is great and the tour guide is very friendly. However, the cruise is a bit less interesting

I liked the tour, and the walk was not as tiring as I expected. Lunch was excellent - a 4 course French meal. The guide showed us the old Japanese-style street restos at the basement level of the Floating Garden Observatory building. Might have been better if the lunch is set at a Japanese resto in the said building. Overall, our family enjoyed the walking tour!

There were only three of us on the tour with the guide, so it was fabulous. Her english was quite good, and she was well organised and had time to listen to and answer our questions as well as she could.

The walking tour was not worth writing home about, however, the lunch at the Granvia Hotel was the best of our stay in Osaka. We were rained on at the Osaka Castle and the river tour, but I would not have missed it.

The walking tour was interesting but I am not sure that it is good value for money. You only visit 3 attractions Umeda Sky Building, Osaka Castle and a river cruise and the river cruise is pretty boring. The other two locations are quite interesting though. The lunch was great too. Our guide was good, explaining everything and answering all questions. It's also worthwhile taking a tour rather than seeing the locations yourself because the guide provides some interesting stories and knowledge, from an Osaka point of view about the history of Osaka and the shoguns who ruled it quite a different perspective from what we learnt on our Kyoto tour.
