This tour is a great overall introduction to Tokyo. Our guide, Junko was very well organized and provided us with excellent information about the history of Tokyo and all the sights visited during this tour. She also helped with restaurant suggestions as well as directions on how to use public transportation which trains to take to get back to our hotel.
An amazing tour, loved evey bit of it. The temples and the skytree was amazing
Very good tour, highly recommended. English speaking guide was good, bus was clean and tour was well paced
Very well organised and run. Good, informative guide, we had time to look around as well as the guided parts of the tour.
First class in every way. Knowledgable guide, appropriate sites, very comfortable coach and the Skytree was a perfect conclusion to the day.
Great tour and they were on time , very reliable tour even were only 3 passenger they 're still take it serious ! We were in Tokyo in February 12 off season and cold . Thanks VIATOR !
WOW!! What a great tour!!! We THROUGHLY enjoyed our day! From the prompt pick up at our hotel front door, to the smooth and comfortable ride, to our hilarious and awesome guide Atushi, we had a BLAST!!! My husband and I have been to Tokyo before, but we were blessed to bring our 22 year old son for a visit and decided on the tour to hit several of the "big" sites. We are soooo glad we did! We were protected from the elements (which turned out to be a beautiful day!!) and loved all the information and history Atushi shared with us!
Let me be honest....we had a fussy, crying out of control toddler and his INCONSIDERATE parents on board, who let him run around and scream like a maniac! I have NO idea why any respectful parent would subject EVERYONE else on holiday to the excrutiating torture of their childs constant crying for a 7 hour tour, but our suave guide Atushi handled it like a CHAMP!!
We saw many beautiful sites on our way to Senjosi temple and parked right behind temple for excellent access to everything. While a little bit more time would have been nice, we still had enough to quickly see the beautiful grounds and even enjoy the AWESOME shopping strip located directly in front of the temple. You will NOT find a better selection of souviners ANYWHERE else, THAT I promise!
We were then off to the Tokyo Sky Tree for a real treat! AWESOME! Parked in front and able to take a few pics of the incredible sight!! But the absolute best part of tour is being WHISKED past literally HUNDREDS of visitors, straight to the elevator for the lightning speed trip to the main views! WOW! So fast our ears popped! We paid a little extra to go all the way to top observation deck, but the view is INCREDIBLE from both decks! We even saw BEAUTIFUL Fuji, it was such a clear evening!
You will NOT be disappointed on this trip, ESPECIALLY if you have the Sky Tree on your "must see" list! I highly recommend this tour! Thank you Atushi!! Sayonara =)
Thought this was a good tour, not too long and not too short. Free time given is enough for you to see/do what you need to. Believe the "Sky-Tree" is the 2nd tallest structure on the planet, and is a "must see". At 60-some odd bucks this tour is fairly priced. Our guide Naomi was pleasant, and well spoken.
Great trip to do which gives you a run around the key sites in Tokyo (it doesn't stop - so if you want to visits these, you'll have to do that separately), to give you a good orientation.
Having been here before, it was nice to sit back and enjoy the view before getting to Asakusa for the first stop and a bit of temple viewing. There's also a great little row of shops to pick up some nice souvenirs of Japan.
The main reason I did this trip was for the Skytree and the fact the groups jump the queue!!! We we in, and up very quickly for stunning views, just at sunset for both a day and night view of Tokyo and beyond. The queue to go to the upper level was very short, so I paid the extra Y1000 (not included) to go up to 450m.
Great trip, with a very good guide throughout - I made my own way back so I had more time to enjoy the amazing shopping and restaurants below the tower. Do this trip, you won't be disappointed.
An interesting tour of the old and new. Outstanding male tour guide who is very knowledgeable and who keeps our ears glued to his commentaries by injecting anecdotes and humour.
Very nice tour with an enjoyable guide who had many details and stories to tell. And the best of all: The ticket to the Skytree is included. Hence, there is no queuing at all. Just straight to the top of this amazing tower. As the Skytree is the last stop of the tour, you are on top around 5:30pm. If you have time, I recommend staying at the Skytree until sunset. Tokyo is so adorable, when the lights turn on.
