This tour was our favorite of the 6 days we were in Tokyo! Benchi Ben was awesome! My son who is 14 absolutely loved this tour! Benchi met us at the hotel then we went to Akihabara which started with karaoke! Now honestly I thought this was going to be boring with just us 3 but it was such fun!! And Benchi sounds like an American Idol singer! Next we went to the Maid Cafe which was also very interesting! Benchi showed us wear to eat and what else to do. Once the tour was ending he even told us where to shop in Shibuya where my son of course got some awesome clothes! Benchi was the best tour guide he and my son now follow each other on twitter!
Our guide, Ben, met us at our hotel lobby. He taught us how to navigate the Tokyo train system, so we were able to use it on our own during the rest of the trip. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Akihabara culture. We're not Anime fans, but our teenage son is. We had a fun afternoon going to a photo booth which is not a typical photo booth, going to a Karaoke room, going to a maid cafe and shopping. Our guide was A.
Real fun quick tour of Akihabara. Some of this is a tad odd, as you would expect. its good to have a guide and she is very knowledgeable sharing the history etc. She also helped us out when our photo machine ended our session before my 2nd daughter got in. the subway to the appointment was confusing. I'd recommend a cab if possible.
Very good experience for French People who arrived from New Caledonia. Sorry for our bad English... The guide was very good, enough sensible to understand what we are waiting for. It was a discovery for us and for our child which is 17 years old who love the japanish culture.. Thanks for your involvement...
Tour could have been better with a better guide. Mingawa was not quite organized, spoke only passable English, and this tour, she admitted, really wasn't her thing, She prefers to do the historical tours. Pick up was fine but she somehow forgot that she was supposed to cover transport. She finally remembered when we just looked at her. She rushed us through everything but the Maid Cafe where she could sit down for way longer than we needed as well as Purika. She kept walking through the photos and rushing my daughter during her editing. Finally with a half hour left to go, she wanted to drop us at Donqui. We weren't interested as we had already hit Daisu, Harajuku, La Foret, as well as Mitsukoshi in Ginza where our hotel was. So instead of seeing us to our hotel as promised or even providing fare, she said, I have to take this phone call and scurried off to leave. Alas, we were familiar with the metro and returned without incident. So the tour idea is great but an excellent guide will make all the difference. Our guide promised photos--never received them. So glad we were taking our own and videoing. Akihabara is exciting and fun. Karaoke was a huge hit. Maid Cafe--kitschy but a must see. My daughter loved Purika. The value versus price point was not very good due to the guide. If you get a great guide I gather others had Mina who actually sets these things up, you won't care a wit about the cost.
