It was a rainy day and the guide adjusted the tour to keep us happy and dry. It cleared by the afternoon and the guide gave us extra time to be sure we got to see everything. Excellent tour!!
The tour guide was very nice and know Osaka quite well Junko also took the time to help people to take photos.

We had a wonderful day with a lovely guide who was so knowledgeable and helpful. 3 course lunch was an unexpected bonus. Lot's of walking of cause but well worth it.
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.
Lovely day spent in Osaka. Cherry Blossom everywhere - stunning. Its a fast pace - in, out, quick. Frustrating but alot to cover. Recommend highly
This tour was an excellent way to get oriented in Osaka and see some of the bigger tourist attractions. The guide was friendly and spoke great English. She gave a thorough overview of the city, and was good at keeping everyone engaged.
Our tour guide was very funny and knowledgeable. It was a fun tour!
So much thanks for our guide Keiko, a real delight.
Easy walking tour , fabulous lunch.
River cruise was good too.
This tour was our introduction to Japan. We got to overlook the city from 173 m sky tower - spectacular views! Our guide was very helpful and informative. Osaka Castle is well worth going to see.
We are now on our way back to Australia after doing 6 Viator tours in Japan and I cannot recommend Viator tours more highly. It was easy to book/pay online and great to read other people's reviews which helped in making tour choices. Every tour was good value for money, well organised and had excellent guides and covered all the places we wanted to see. I will definately be booking with them for future overseas trips.
Osaka walking tour was excellent! It was hot, but the guide let us take our time and spoke wonderful English. The lunch that was part of the tour was great!
The trip was cancelled the day before it was scheduled due to lack of bookings. Bummer.
Indeed an invigorating and truly refreshing kind of tour. My family and I enjoyed the sights while on a walking tour. The Osaka River Cruise is really interesting and the sight is heavenly as we see cherry blossoms line in bloom on both sides.
Gave me a glimpse of what there is in Osaka, historically culturally and geographically. I would highly recommend this tour to Osaka visitors. Although not suitable for people with weak hearts and legs during summertime when the heat is terrible.
Appreciate the effort of the tour guide who tried her best to make our tour fully enjoyed. .
We were met promptly by our guide and immediately took off to a fascinating walking tour along with a subway ride. The highlight, a visit to a high-rise building with a observation deck permitted an expansive view of the entire city. By the time we had lunch I felt that the overview of the city was achieved. Lunch was in a 'french' restaurant in the Osaka Train Station and a pleasant break in our walking allowing the rest of weary feet. After lunch more walking, really that is the only way to see local color that was the objective of the tour.
We were then taken to a river cuise for a relaxing view of the bustle of the city and more skyline perspective. Over all, it was a comprehensive day of seeing this very hectic city.

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.
Great tour guide, captured the highlights, in retrospect should have spent the afternoon on something other than the river cruise, enjoyed everything but the river cruise did not really provide much to the tour. It was a relaxing moment but not all that interesting compared to seeing other high lights in a limited timeline.
