Great tour that takes in some major sights in Tokyo. Pity it doesnt stop at tokyo tower, but it makes up for it by going to skytree, which is amazing. Spending an hour in asakusa is always good fun and we had a Lovely guide (akiko)
I really recommend this tour if you've never been to Tokyo before.
A good tour for getting about to the interesting and distant parts of the city, as we were based in Sinagawa.
The guide was helpful and informative as well as funny.
Wonderful tour- I highly recommend. Akiko was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable - great experience!
Another amazing day out in Tokyo with Viatour. The skytree is well worth going to and the Asakusa is really good for shopping and photos. The only drawback was having to get back from Tokyo train station in the evening. There were 3 of us trying to find our way back and it wasn't easy, somehow we managed it between us but it took about an hour and was quite stressful finding the right trains and the right exits. nI would have been perfect had we been dropped back to hotel. Mind you it threw us in at the deep end and the next day we were confident to go out on the trains on our own!
Learned a lot from our guide. She was super nice and knew a lot of information. She even made sure that we knew our way back to our hotel. Book this trip and you don't have to wait when you line-up at Tokyo Skytree, the tour gives you a quick and easy access up to the observation deck.
The guide had a lot of information and was very good. The first part of the trip is mostly a bus ride through the city but Asakusa was very interesting and the Skytree was excellent. I would recommend the tour even just for the Skytree. It holds hundreds of people. The lines were VERY long but on this tour we got to skip the line and went right in. With this tour you wont have to get transportation, including VERY expensive taxi, there or find parking and you will be dropped off at Tokyo Station after the tour guide rounds you up. It was very convenient. Also, the tour was in the evening so we got to see the sunset and see the city in the dark. I thought the allotted time (90 minutes?) might be too long before we went but with the size of the place and the number of people there the time was just right.
Very informative tour guide...cant remember his name but he asked us to call him "Sushi"...
Our tour guide, Junko, was the best . She spoke clearly, never used any notes, and gave us a lot of knowledge about Tokyo and Japan, in addition to what the tour covered. It was a great tour, made even greater by Junko. Thank you, and her.
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
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.
