Excellent tour with Aki and Keiko. We got to see a cross-section of Osaka that we would never have known about without our helpful guides. Highlights include the view from the top of Osaka Station, the water clock , old Osaka streets and eating a 'snack' in this area.
A good way of orientating oneself around this part of Osaka.

Mr Jing Zhi was very knowledgeable and friendly during the tour. There was only 3 of us in the tour so it was private and cozy. We get to learn new knowledge and walk to places that we would never have gone without the tour guide. Thank you!

A wonderful half day tour! We went to the top of Osaka train station complex and saw an overview of the city. Then we headed into the city by subway. Seeing a good mix of cultural, shopping and fun sights. We had some tastings of local foods and went to areas we hadn't heard of. The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in giving us directions to a temple. It was excellent tour!!

As a solo traveller it was fantastic to pick up this tour to get the lay of the land and be shown so many highlights of Osaka in a snap shot. It made my subsequent days so much easier and gave me a taste for where I wanted to revisit. My guide Miss Minako was fantastic, I couldn't have asked for a better guide, she had excellent English and a great ability to balance history and general items of interest to travellers. I would highly recommend any visitor picking up this tour on arrival to Osaka.

What a great morning spent with our guide Yasu!!!!! We only had the morning in Osaka and travelled from Kyoto to have a look around. It was well worth it. He was very knowledgeable and we saw a lot in the 3 hours. He gave us an insight into the local slang and was able to explain a great deal about the local culture. We loved the stop in at the Tokyo Tower Knife shop too. It was very interesting.
It was just our family of 4 on the tour and the kids 10 and 12 year olds both enjoyed the tour as well. Highly recommended. Thanks very much Yasu.
