Amazing Rickshaw Tour 5/5 ⭐️
Shanda_N, Jul 2022
We got to view beautiful architecture and our tour guide shared history of the architecture with us. It was an amazing experience that everyone should experience at least once. I would definitely recommend it.
Perfect Trip
PHOEBE_M, Nov 2020
T was our guide and he was fantastic. Super friendly and knowledgeable. He took took some amazing photographs of us as a family we will treasure forever, enabled us to learn lots about the area and took us to get some amazing delicious snacks along the way. We can’t wait to do it again. Thank you.
Outstanding Experience!
Jennifer_E, Nov 2019
My driver, Nobu, was amazing!!! I had a long layover with about 4 hours available in the city, so decided to do a 3 hour rickshaw ride. LOVED it!!! I cannot wait to go back to Tokyo and spend some more time there.
Amazing!
Susan_D, Jul 2019
Tiagra was our guide and he was great! He talked to us the whole time sharing information about Tokyo and asking us a lot of questions! He has a great personality! We had so much fun!

Excellent tour. Driver was fun, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. I'll recommend this tour AND driver to anyone.
Hard working rickshaw driver
Sandra_B, Apr 2019
Koyo was absolutely fantastic! He had excellent English and when he knew we had an interest in gardens and unu sual buildings, he tried very hard to fit as much as possible into our two hour tour. My mother and I were delighted. He took great photos of the two of us together at few a different spots. It was a wonderful introduction to Japan and the amazing cherry blossoms. Thank you so much.

Chow P, Aug 2018
Mr. Satsuki and Mr. Mocchy are two professional rickshaw drivers. They excel in every detail. From talking to kids, to historical information about the places, from attitude to creativity, all in an interesting and humors atmosphere. This is surely one of my best experience in Japan.
A great way to get around the city...
Tonya_K, Mar 2018
A great way to get around the city and have a history lesson at the same time. Our guide was so informative, as well as making it very personal to us. My son made friends with him immediately because our guide was so friendly and hospitable. He showed us some small unique shrines, and even took us into a shrine, showing us the proper shrine ettiquette, so we didn't disrespect these beautiful places. Would highly recommend a lovely few hours tripping around the city, seeing the real Japan, including its wonderful people.

Nathan W, Nov 2017
We had a great time touring Asakusa! We did the 2-hour tour so we could get all the sight-seeing in and not feel rushed. We are a family of four so we had two rickshaws. Our guides Taka and Minami were fabulous! They were both knowledgable and eager to share insights at each landmark. This was our first rickshaw tour and we will certainly do it again. Thank you, Taka and Minami, for a great time and adding great photos to our memory book! The Walker Family

Evelyn W, Oct 2017
Our rickshaw driver was great with a wonderful sense of humor. He was bright and working his way through school. We got a great overview of the area. This tour was taken on our first day in Tokyo knowing we would be too tired to do much else and was the perfect thing to do and then decide what we wanted to and where to spend more time.

JGRP, Oct 2017
This tour was so much FUN! Ebisuya Company did a fantastic job of communicating before the tour and accommodating our preferred time and giving us directions on how to get to the meeting place. When we arrived for the tour, they had a big sign with our name and took numerous photos of us in the rickshaw. The manager was very friendly, and our rickshaw driver, Kohei, was the BEST! He spoke English very well and gave us a running commentary on what we were seeing as he ran us around the Asakusa area. We made some stops at the temple too, and he explained the tradition to us. We had the 2 hour tour, and time flew by because we were having so much fun. He has a great laugh and personality, and we felt like friends from the start. All the drivers we encountered were very friendly and made us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend doing this tour!
So happy we scheduled this rickshaw...
Kelli B, Oct 2017
So happy we scheduled this rickshaw tour. I booked the two hour tour so that it was more leisure and not so rushed. As one might expect to have a male Rickshaw driver, we had the most adorable little young lady, Minami. She was truly, the BEST. First of all, she was so strong like Wonder-woman! She assured us... she has trained for this job and she has it down! Oh my.... she sure did! Minami made it the most interesting tour as she took us through different neighborhoods and shared lots of history and answered questions. Her English was excellent so she was so easy to understand. I will ask for her next time...

Debbie T, Sep 2017
What a fantastic introduction to Tokyo! Our rickshaw driver, Minami, was a slip of a girl who ran us all over the Asakusa neighborhood of Japan. This is a very colorful and interesting part of town with lots to see. We were surprised to see our welcome sign when we arrived and even though the weather was hot and rained off and on, it was a good trip. Our driver was very informative and kept up a running commentary on all that we passed. She was more than willing to stop for photos and her English was perfect! She took us to shrines and temples and taught us the difference between them and how people pray in each. We really enjoyed our ride and would recommend it to people wanting to experience the flavor of old Japan!

Roy G, Sep 2017
This tour surpassed our expectations thanks to our guide, Taka. His English was perfect. He described all we saw and answewd all our questions. In addition to Takayuki, I want to praise Ebisuya, the tour company. I contacted them befor the tour regarding how to get there. They provided subway details that were easy and accurate. When we arrived, the was a banner with our names welcoming us. Take ane Ebisuya couldn't have done more to make our tour more enjoyable.

Nice tour of parts of Tokyo in a very unique way. My guide was very good at helping me take pictures and was very knowledgeable of the area!

David S, Aug 2017
This was fun. Easy enough to find with the map and directions the tour people email you. As there were three of us we had two rickshaws so plenty of room. We travelled around back streets and main roads together and we were impressed with the guys that pulled us along. Not only were they very fit, they were friendly, courteous and very alert to the road traffic around us. Plenty of stops for photos and at the end of the tour they dropped us off at the ferry for our river cruise. Highly recommended.
