The morning tour was a highlight of our visit to Tokyo. Our guide Meiko was amazing, she talked about the shrine and temple we visited, as well as giving us interesting historical anecdotes while the bus drove us around Tokyo from pickup point to shrine to garden to temple. We were taught a few Japanese words and given loads of tips on shops and places to visit. A definite must for first time visitors to Tokyo. Would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Tomoko was so full of knowledge and had so many interesting stories, she made this tour as good as it was. The temples were beautiful and she had so many fun facts about them. The only downside would be that you don't get enough time to explore them more, but if you had the time you could always go back. I always prefer to get tours when going into places like these as the guide gives you so much more information than a brochure ever could. The Ginza part was also more of a drop off, but it was handy for us as we wanted to explore this area and she pointed out some major places of interest.

Wife and I enjoyed this tour. We saw highlights of Tokyo and gave us ideas on how to spend the rest of our time in Tokyo. The tour guide's English was very good and she added humor. She also provided information about Japan's culture. We were lucky enough to see a Shinto wedding and the guide also showed pictures of her Shinto wedding. We noticed that the tour does not include travel back from the bus terminal to your hotel. No problem, wife and I decided to stay longer at the Senso-ji temple and had lunch in the area. Our guide showed us how to take the metro and it left us 1/2 block away from our hotel. We learn how to use the metro and used it to get around in Tokyo.
A superb tour. Our tour guide, Mina was exceptional. It was a great way to see Tokyo in a very short time. We wished we had done the full day tour. Worth every dollar.
A good way to see Tokyo if you are only there for a short while.
This tour is very good for me as this trip to Japan is my first trip.
The tour guide can describe everything clearly in English.
I really enjoy this morning tour.
It was a great tour for us since we had a very short visit to Tokyo. The tour takes you through all the major suburbs and the guide was superb with all the historic and current information. Enjoyed the tour!
Highly recommended for tourists with short time to spend in Tokyo.
Our guide spoke English well since she had studied in Canada. She gave a little humorous side to the shrines and temples ("when passing through the gate of a shrine, you are said to be cleansed, but some people have to go back and forth several times before they are clean enough to move forward...") which made it fun. It was our first day so we didn't mind sitting in the bus for 30 minutes to get to the starting point, we just people watched all the little kids going to school, people on foot, etc. We had a little free time at Asakusa Buddhist Temple which was fun. Bring snacks with you as you have little time to sit and have a coffee, etc. We saw 3 things that morning, including the Imperial Palace which was super cool because we heard the guards practicing their martial arts behind a fence and could see them jumping high and shouting, etc.
