It was great to have inside knowledge of everything in the museum which baffled other visitors.

Good tour of Studio Ghibli, place was packed out when we went but still an interesting experience.

We had the loveliest tour guide, Michiko, the name of the current empress! She was very helpful and very informative! The Studio itself is spectacular, even though it was ridiculously busy and tight in certain places, it didn't diminish the experience. You feel as though you are in an animation when you are there and seeing how it all works is quite spectacular! Even though we were under the impression that we would be getting a bus straight there, public transporting it was super easy with our guide leading the way and even allowed us to see a side of Tokyo we wouldn't have! Overall a must do for any animation enthusiast (or not!)!

This tour was very good. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable on Studio Ghibli. Transport from Shinjuku involved catching a train and then a bus so we were glad we got to Studio Ghibli with the tour (as buses only have Japanese writing). The tour started with our guide explaining some of the history of animation and of Studio Ghibli which lasted about 10-20mins. We were then allowed about 1.5-2hrs of free time to roam the 3 floors of the museum. I recommend this tour for first timers in Japan who want to visit Studio Ghibli.

Very good tour. The guide was wonderful and the museum was very nice. The only inconvenience was the changes of bus 1 to bus 2, to subway, and then to another bus. I think one of the reasons people take a bus tour is not having to go through all that. Overall it was a good experience.

Good experience, only gripe was having to run twice to catch a bus.
