The tour was great! Miki was enthusiastic and sweet, despite some rude tourists talking while she was telling us about the museum. Nice job, Miki!

Highly recommended option for those wanting to visit Ghibli but were unable to privately purchase admission. It is also really nice meet in central Tokyo and taken out as a group to the museum, as the location is reasonably far away from downtown Tokyo.

We loved every minute of this tour. Ghibli is such a magical place. Allow time in the cafe afterwards. The guide gave extremely detailed instructions for the day and made sure everyone knew how to get back to their hotels. The mini movie was a surprise and delight.

For those people who are fans of Studio Ghibli productions, this tour is a must-see! We were able to view all the exhibits in the time allotted to us and also spend some time in the extensive gift shop. The bus ride to the museum was on time and comfortable and we were given explicit instructions on how to return to downtown Tokyo on the train. All in all, a great experience and highly recommended.
