This was certainly the best day of a two week trip to Japan. Our guide, June, was really good with great English, very friendly and helpful. Wonderful lunch at the Granvia. Osaka is a lovely place - in the morning we walked around Osaka seeing many of the 'exotic' buildings - especially amazing the Umeda building. After lunch went to the Castle learning the history related to Shoguns etc. The cruise made a wonderful end to a busy day.

Nice walk from Osaka station to the Umeda Sky Tower, great views. Guid spoke english well and was very informative throughout the tour. Short train ride to the Castle which was impressive and then on to the river boat cruise. I would highly recommend this tour.

I expected a walking tour to most of Osaka's attractions but we walked mostly going to the subway and out,, the stations being located quite a distance from the attraction itself and we started late. Anyway, from our meeting place in Granvia Hotel Osaka, we walked to the nearby Umeda Sky building after which we went back to Granvia Hotel for lunch. After lunch, we took the subway to Temmabashi Station where we walked towards
the main tower of the Osaka Castle. We went up to the 5th floor(the elevator is only for going up) and you have to go down on foot as you browse through the museum but since we were given only a few min, there wasn't enough time to see everything. From there, we walked towards the pier located a good distance at the back of the castle for the river cruise. It was the nicest part of the tour which lasted almost an hour. Then we went back to our respective hotels by subway again.

The walking tour was interesting but I am not sure that it is good value for money. You only visit 3 attractions Umeda Sky Building, Osaka Castle and a river cruise and the river cruise is pretty boring. The other two locations are quite interesting though. The lunch was great too. Our guide was good, explaining everything and answering all questions. It's also worthwhile taking a tour rather than seeing the locations yourself because the guide provides some interesting stories and knowledge, from an Osaka point of view about the history of Osaka and the shoguns who ruled it quite a different perspective from what we learnt on our Kyoto tour.
