Absolutely worth the money, it's a great way to get your bearings and then to plan an itinerary.
Which was very useful for us as we traveled with older teenagers and we were very confident after this tour to let them go off by themselves.
Our Guild was very knowledgeable,helpful and allowed us the flexibility to stay at sights that interested us and to miss what we did not interest us.
Thank you for making our trip to your beautiful city very enjoyable and hassle free

Our guide Meg is a keeper. superb tour for my wife and I. We never had a better walking tour. This is testimony to Meg's knowledge of the city and skillful presentation skills. Excellent English and Japanese. In a huge city bustling with cherry blossom anticipation we saw everything noteworthy, especially tucked away architectural treats.

This was the most fantastic day and worth every cent. Our guide Ikumi was the most beautiful and caring lady, who helped us with so many other things - not just relating to the tour. Ikumi was informative, professional and friendly. We visited the sights we had nominated as well as many other places she included along the way. Ikumi also went an hour and a half longer than the tour was meant to go for. I would give this tour and Ikumi 5 starts and recommend it to anyone considering it.

This tour was so interesting and fun. Our tour guide Ikumi was charming and extremely well organized. She provided great insight and information beyond what we were expecting. The tour we planned involved a lot of walking, so when my energy flagged and feet started to hurt, Ikumi changed our itinerary to accommodate me. I would enthusiastically recommend this tour and Ikumi as a guide.

Meg was an awesome tour guide. We customized a full day tour using public transit. Meg is delightful and insightful helping us to make the most of our time inclusive of an amazing luncheon! Highly recommend this customized tour if your time in Tokyo is limited!

Our guide, Meg, was very knowledgable and flexible for our group of eight. A great introduction to Tokyo, it's history and culture.

Simply brilliant. Silvia was an amazingly friendly and knowledgeable guide and I learnt so much about Tokyo in a very short time although much much more to learn still. Before I left Meg gave me a list of suggestions for the day from which I chose 4 things - all quite different. This was very helpful! I could not have asked for a better day.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the various sites that we went to see. We chose the half day tour, which was set at a nice pace for us. It was our first day in Tokyo and our tour guide helped explain the subway and rail systems which was very helpful since we used subway's for our entire trip. We chose to see the fish market and the gardens and topped it off by riding the monorail. She explained facts about Japan and Japanese life all along the way. It was a great tour.
