For someone who hasn't been to Tokyo before, this is a good way to get acquainted. Many fascinating sights were visited, including temples and other area. The boat ride was excellent.
Very nice afternoon, interesting comments by the guide, Would recommend this tour as an orientation to Tokyo.
Very good trip. I think they could leave out the river trip and just let people spend more time at the market and surrounding area.
Nice afternoon tour until we got on the boat. There was a school group and we couldn't hear a word on the loudspeaker. I would have liked to know what we were cruising by.
This was a lovely tour and gave us a change to get to know Tokyo on our first full day in this fabulous City.
Nice tour. Competent and fluent English speaking guide. The "river cruise" was just a boat trip and perhaps the least interesting part of the tour...
Very nice tour. Maybe need to have audio tool to help listen the talk of guide, because of too many people around.
As my first day and first time in Japan this tour was a good introduction to the city an culture. On the river cruise I didn't get to see that much from an isle seat.
Very well-organized tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and also funny at the time.The pace of the tour was just perfect, allowing us to have enough time to see the attractions and take some pics as well.
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.
I had already taken the Panoramic Tokyo Day Tour the day before and this one recapped a few of the places we went to. The new additions that were different from the day tour was the viewing from the observation floor of the World Trade Center building and the boat ride up the Sumida River. The one plus about this tour was it wasn't as rushed as the Panoramic Day tour. Just because it wasn't so rushed was a big plus and in many ways more preferable to the day tour. However, the afternoon tour did not go to the Meiji Shinto shrine which was quite beautiful and deserves a repeated viewing.
We decided to do this tour to get a brief overview of Tokyo. We took the tour on the second day of our trip. We were very happy that we took this tour. It wasn't rushed and our guide was great! You will be happy you took the tour!!
Good organization a bit rushed at markets and river cruise at end of day but overall a great way to see sights in an afternoon. Would recommend.
very good guide very knowledable made the tour very interesting
great introduction to Tokyo. Our tour guide spoke excellent English, and she gave us some interesting facts about Japan and Tokyo history. Strongly reccomend this tour if you have time.
Great tour, and a very interesting guide. He was a bit hard to hear/understand at times though.
Unfortunately it rained. We still enjoyed seeing the sights of Tokyo, but the rain made it difficult to truly enjoy the trip and the cruise.
Tour was well coordinated and informative.. The English speaking tour guide was excellent, and knowledgeable. Unfortunately due to the time of year (mid June to mid July) we were rained on. This is an excellent tour for a good overview of the area. The highlight being the visit to the Kannon Temple and Nakamise shopping tour in Asukasa.
Trip was well plan , Well organised. Staff was helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend viator .
Great little trip with a very informative guide taking in a number of city highlights. The only downside was that on the cruise I ended up sitting at the back of the barge where the windows were difficult to see out of and you couldn't hear the guide. Other than that all good.
good thing we chose the afternoon tour as it was bright and sunny. we were able to see the skyscrapers along the sumida river. the guide was good, gave us lots of information from the start till the end of the tour. He was also friendly and smiling face. :-)
The tour provided everything we wanted - a short overview of the city. Guide was very friendly and informative.Very satisfied
This tour was a great way to get a feel for Tokyo in a short period. There was a good mix of sightseeing from the bus and stops to get out, take pictures, go to the fantastic market and temple. Being in the afternoon in winter it was dusk by the time we boarded to River Cruise and it was lovely to watch darkness fall and all the lights appear as we cruised. Our guide was good and made sure we knew how to return to our hotel at the end of the day
