Nice way to spend the morning getting to see the city, hear some history, and do a little bit of exploring on my own. The guide spoke English very well and was well informed. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour is the perfect thing to do at the start of your time in Tokyo or if you're pushed for time. Views from the Tokyo Tower are great - we had clear weather, and the Place and Temple are fascinating. The guides and tour itself are all very well run.

Our tour guide Yume was very knowledgeable and friendly. She explained everything on the tour, as well as answered our many questions. Everything was timed perfectly - the amount of free time to go through the shopping street was appreciated also. We would definitely use this company again and request Yume as the guide if we could!

A great way to spend limited time seeing more of Tokyo. Fast-paced. The tour guide was excellent. i recommend you arrive early at the location where the tour departs it was crowded and chaotic -- not extremely well organized . . . but once we were on the bus and the tour got started, we had a great time!

Tour was very efficient if you only have a short amount of time in Tokyo. Hit three popular sites and got to see more of the city on the drive between sites. Very minimal walking. Very knowledgeable guide and would strongly recommend to others.

Our guide was named a name that sounded like Tokyo. She said it meant first-born. Anyways, she was awesome and so was the tour. Fast paced enough that you saw a lot in a short period of time and didn't have time to get bored.
