Great organization and very punctual.

We were picked up on schedule from our pick up points and taken to the bus stop for our guides and buses.
Excellent guide, full marks on knowledge, humour and making sure everyone was at ease

Very nice tour, worth the price. More time shopping not really needed BUT transportation back to your hotel is definitely recommended.

Good tour, though fast paced, as others have indicated. Our guide was very friendly and spoke English well. I only wish it had ended closer to the pickup point.

I was well organized and a great tour - guide was exceptional as her English was very strong and she kept us on task. We were not rushed and they gave us enough time between everything to look around. We did skip the Ginza part of the tour as there was too much to still look at with the Senso-ji Temple and there were 1000s of vendors set up.

An excellent introduction to Tokyo from an experienced and informative guide. The weather was snow and rain and very cold, so not so easy to get out and walk about but her enthusiasm kept us all going!
My only criticism is that the drop off in Ginza district, rather than back at the pick up point could be difficult if you had just arrived in the city and were not yet orientated to the area. I was on my own and it was the day after I arrived in Japan and Tokyo, but luckily I recognised some buildings from the first day that helped me get back to my hotel.

Covered lots of sights in a half day. Well done tour. We got picked up at hotel, which was very easy, but it took a long time to get to the bus terminal,after stopping at several hotels on the way.

This was a great way to spend our first morning in Tokyo. It was a great way to orientate yourself and then then explore Ginza and have the rest of the afternoon to explore yourself. Very experienced and friendly guide.

So glad we did this. A great way to experience two well-known historic sites in Tokyo, without any fuss or bother with regards to transportation or entrance fees. Loved that our surroundings were narrated to us while we were driven around the city. Kyoko was a wonderful tour guide!

The tour guide was very nice and informative. She provided personal things to give is a sense of the culture and was accommodating if we ran late or wanted to change or meeting or departure location. It was great to also learn about the different sights along the way.

A succinct tour of the major highlights of Tokyo. Highly recommended for the first-timer in this bustling and cosmopolitan city. One could even view the newest and latest addition -- Tokyo Skytree--from the Asakusa Sensoji Temple on this tour.

Our tour guide, May, was very informative and anticipated the groups needs with interesting facts and history for the sites we visited as well as information about Tokyo between sites. We had a hotel pick-up which was very convenient and a must as the bus station where the tour "starts" is hard to find and get to the right area where the tours leave from. We visited the sites as advertised, Shinto, Imperial gardens, and lastly the Buddhist temple. We did a half day tour and they dropped us off at the shopping district not too far from the National Kabuki Theater (a must see!).

We learned the major differences between Shinto and Buddhism as well as the Imperial system and how the Shogun era impacted Japan and its culture. The shrines were actually not much to see in themselves but we saw 2 wedding parties, a Shinto monk procession, and the ceremony of tolling the shrine bells. The Imperial gardens were nice and a great break from the concrete and glass of Tokyo. The Buddhist temple was interesting but extremely crowded. A lot of excellent shops and stalls on the main street and there are people walking around in actual kimonos and period dress (men and women). Get some of the snacks and small objects here as they are much easier to find, but no bargaining as in other Asian cities.

We took our 2 small children, 5 and 8, and they kept up and managed the entire half day tour easily. Plenty of photo opportunities every where on this tour, even on the bus as you will go past the Tokyo Tower and the Sky Tree. Take some spending money for Buddhist Temple area. Take advantage of the hotel pickup. If you do the half day tour, there are restaurants close to the drop off point. Make your way back to the National Kabuki Theater and Sony Showroom for sure. Shows are short and very interesting but kids have to be quiet and no photos. Great cultural and photogenic tour of Tokyo!
