A must do Tour
Erin_K, Jan 2020
Gaku-san’s bicycle tour is a wonderful experience, to say the least. A brilliant way to witness just how grand Tokyo is. We saw a ton of the city first hand, and learned a great deal from our friendly host. The biking itself wasn’t even that tiring, as we made stops frequently enough to catch our breath. Gaku-San was very knowledgeable about the different areas of the city, and speaks very good English. We got to see areas of the city we never would have been able to otherwise and got to learn about life in Tokyo from a local’s perspective. The experience was more than worth the cost of admission. This was the first tour we took after getting to Tokyo and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision. Gaku-san, thank you again for showing us around the city!
Great Experience! Highly Recommend!
Moudy_E, Dec 2019
1. Bikes were very good and working order. Mine had disc brakes and was a comfortable ride. 2. Gaku was a such a great guy and an excellent tour guide. 3. Instructions were clear and great. You will have a wonderful time with Gaku. We got to see Mt. Fuji from the lookout. It was a very special moment that I won't forget.
Excellent Overview of Tokyo with Gaku!
Nairi_N, Oct 2019
From start to finish, Gaku was an excellent guide. When we booked, he sent us detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to get to the meeting place - which was reassuring for us having no prior experience in Japan. When we met him, we were greeted with a big smile. We asked him for restaurant recommendations and he was quick to pull a few up on his phone (and they were amazing by the way!). The tour itself was 6.5 hours and yes about 20 miles but it was broken up well enough that it didn't feel tiring at any point. We are NOT avid cyclists so rest assured you can do it too! We felt safe on the pathways and streets. Gaku took pictures of us, answered questions, was very patient when we went to the supermarket and bought the entire store which he then carried in his own backpack until we reached our eating spot at Tokyo Bay! After the tour, Gaku went out of his way to help us purchase our Pasmo/Suica cards that we used for the rest of our trip. He later followed up with a link to the photos he had taken of us throughout the day. Overall this tour was exactly as described, worth every penny, and was a great introduction on our first day in Tokyo. Highly recommend!! Thank you Gaku!!
Great bike tour!
Brandon F, May 2019
Fantastic way to see the city! Lots of biking overall, so be prepared for that. A few modest uphills, but usually you’d stop ever half hour or less.
Wheely Good Fun!
Nomad64670152833, Apr 2019
Had a brilliant tour peddling around Tokyo under the expert guidance of Gaku and was amazed how much we got to see. The bikes are excellent, the pace is nice and gentle and we had lots of ‘wheely’ good fun in the process too. Gaku is a excellent guide and explained things succinctly and informatively, which made for an all the more memorable trip.
Pierre L, Sept 2019
This bike trip was a nice way to take the measure of the city which is huge. According to Gaku (our guide), we rode more than 30 km... However it did not seemed so long. A peace of cake even in the heavy traffic since people are very respectful of each other. Gaku was super friendly and open-minded. He gave us many insights of the city. To resume we’ll do it again anytime...

Allen B, May 2018
Great experience! The bikes are high-quality and in good shape. Mid-April gave us perfect cycling weather, the roads in Tokyo are well maintained hardly any cracks or potholes, and the slopes are very gentle. The traffic gets pretty dense at times, but the drivers are polite and give you enough space. Gaku is a good guide and can tell you a lot about the sights you'll see. He's also very skilled at taking photos!
See Tokyo in a whole new way!
Roger R, Nov 2019
Gaku was an amazing guide who gave us the support and confidence to get through even the most challenging traffic. The route took us around all of the key areas of the city and gave us an incredible vantage point that a bus or walking tour couldn't come close to in terms of coverage and details. Riding to Tokyo bay and having a picnic lunch was one of the highlights. Thanks Gaku for a great and memorable tour of Tokyo!

Vik_K, Jun 2018
I did a few tours off Viator on my trip to Tokyo and by far this was one of my favorite. Gak is very funny and knowledgeable and passionate about biking. This tour was one of the highlights of my trip which allows you too really see a lot of central Tokyo. The bikes were also in great shape! PS: Gak is a professional mountain biker - He started this company with the belief that the best way to really get a feel of a city through biking. This is from his own personal experience. -Vik

Good tour. Guide was knowledgeable, organized, and easy to understand. Tour was of a good length for someone with average bicycle experience and stamina. Tour has several stops of 30-45 minutes along the way.

Jochen_S, May 2018
I have seen areas of Tokyo which a normal traveller will never see. Highly recommended. It is a few hours of cycling but normal fitness level is sufficient.
Great day!
Derwin_A, Apr 2019
This was a wonderful way to see Tokyo. Gaku is a friendly, informative guide that took us to most of the major sites by doing a 32 km circle from Shinjuku and back. We bought a bento box at the supermarket and ate outside at Tokyo Bay, the tour concluded with a trip up to the top of the Metropolitan Tower to see all the places we had cycled. Traffic wasn't a problem. Highly recommended.
Best possible way to get oriented to Tokyo
John_A, Sept 2022
This is a fantastic way to see a lot of Toyko in a short period of time. Gaku was a phenomenal tour guide! He is so friendly and fun, and he even customized the stops along the tour based on my specific interests in architecture and Studio Ghibli. If you are considering this tour - definitely do it!
Great way to explore Tokyo
Aileen_A, May 2019
Definitely recommend this tour. Gaku was great. Well organized and informative guide. Travelled at a good space, stopping at various points of interest. We stopped at a local supermarket to pick up a bento box for lunch and ate it overlooking the river.Gaku also took lots of photos of small group of four and emailed to us , a lovely personal touch. Do it.. you won't regret it ! Thanks Gaku we had a great time, and wish all the best ...Aileen and Trevor 😊😊

Cynthia_V, Jun 2018
One of the best bike tours I've taken. I've done bike tours in both Paris Monet's Gardens and Rome and now this one in Tokyo with Gaku, our guide. Viator does fantastic bike tours and Gaku is one of the best guides! You must do this tour if you are even thinking about it a little bit.
See a lot with a great guide
John_A, Jul 2019
Highly recommended way to see Tokyo. Covered a great deal of ground, saw many of the highlights of Toyko at a very acceptable pace. Gaku was excellant guide who enjoyed sharing his local knowledge with us. There were only four of us which made this a very personal guided tour. Great way to explore!!
