Excellent tour, covers all the main sights. Our tour guide, Mai, is very experienced and spoke excellent English. She even went out of her way to help us with our dinner reservation. The 4 course lunch at the hotel was almost fine dining, so unexpected from a day tour like this. The overal service from tour guide to restaurant servers were top-notch. All this without having to tip! (By the way, tipping in Japan in considered rude or insulting). At first, I thought paying $150 for a day tour is a bit pricey but considering the quality, you're getting your money's worth!
Very well-organized tour of Tokyo. Our guide was very professional and pleasant. I highly recommend this tour for people spending just a day or two in Tokyo.
We took this tour on our second day of our visit to Tokyo. For a general tour around this busy cosmopolitan city this tour is a good starter and taster.
Well organised as everyone has an allocated seat on the coach. Our driver was very good negotiating the busy roads and traffic. Our guide Mori was excellent. At all stops where there was a time to be back he held up a board with the time on, so even those who could not understand English the time was very clear. Good overall tour with loads on information with a certain amount of comic remarks making this a very enjoyable tour.
We booked with lunch, just thinking it would be a sandwich in a small cafe along the way. Not at all a full 3 coarse meal with wine in a good hotel restaurant on the top floor.
I would recommend this tour as a taster to Tokyo but do remember you are scratching the surface with quick short stops, you do not get a great deal of time at the various locations. So do not expect to spend hours at each place if you want to then do not take this tour.
We loved this tour! We started our trip off with this tour and it was the perfect way to set the stage for Tokyo. During this tour, I felt like we saw a high level overview of the entire city and it was perfect to start the trip off this way, because then we could spend the rest of the trip going back to spend more time at the sites that we were most interested in. This was a bus tour mostly and the bus was very comfortable. We had a great guide that spoke perfect English. I would highly recommend this tour if it is your first time in Tokyo.
Great overview of Tokyo. Lunch and the view of the garden was delightful. Totally enjoyed our cruise, very nice ship. Tour guide was great. Hotel pick up was very easy. Guide was very helpful giving us directions on how to get back to our hotel.
excellent tour...combining many wonderful sites and experiences...great tour guide.
Our tour guide Mr. Inouye is fantastic , very good sense of humor and entertaining the food was great
The tour was fantastic - great choice of locations to visit and our tour guide very knowledgeable, nice and sensitive. Lunch was in the restaurant with beautiful view - would be ideal to have Japanese traditional food in that restaurant
The guide was excellent. And the tour itself covered all the high spots of Tokyo. It was a great way to see the overall city and get a good orientation of what was out there. But the best part of it was again the guide. He was so personable, informative, and engaging. Will defintely try your tours next time.
I took my mom on this tour because she has never been to Tokyo but i have. The tour was a quick and thorough introduction of the city. She enjoyed it very much, and our tour guide was excellent and very informative.
Excellent, the guide speaks very good english, it is value for money.
It was a good introduction to Tokyo and its quirks. The guide was knowledgeable and very helpful. We especially enjoyed the harbour cruise.
