The bike trip was well organized and a fun day of seeing a different Tokyo at a different pace. Our guides were really helpful,and really showed that they cared about the riders having a good time and staying hydrated in the hot weather. It was a way to see more charming offbeat sites of the city and I was surprised at how easy it was to bicycle through a busy city like Tokyo. Thank you to Yoko and her husband for a great day.
Really enjoyed this day this was our fourth day in Tokyo and the first three had been very hectic, navigating the subway and shopping etc, so this day was great for just relaxing. It sounds like it could be hard work, cycling in July heat and humidity, but it was surprisingly easy. We all enjoyed lunch, even my husband found a curry he liked and he can be reluctant to try new foods. My son still wanted to go shopping once the tour had ended, but for the six hours we were on this tour it was great to slow things down for a while and see something different, which we wouldn't have seen otherwise. We did the Mt Fuji tour the following day, which constantly felt like we were being hurried back onto the coach, so this cycling tour was my favourite out of the two.
I was the only participant during this tour, so I kind of considered myself lucky, I'll admit, I felt like I got a lot of attention, especially when it came to hearing about the areas we stopped in. This was my first tour with Yasushi and he was a great tour guide. Biking through the city and the back areas that were less crowded with people and traffic was nice. The bikes were easy to operate, made me wish I had one back home here that I could use as much! Japan definitely makes it much easier to bike than where I live here. Yasushi gave a lot of good details about each spot we stopped in and I didn't feel like the tour was rushed at all.
Excellent fun tour of the real Tokyo. Yoko and her husband were very informative and extremely professional we had a great time. Would recommend this tour to anyone who can ride a bicycle.
Our guides Yasushi and Yoko were exceptional. This is the part of Tokyo not many tourists would bother venturing to. The guides took us to out of the way shrines, temples and sights not found in tourist guidebooks. The whole day moves along at a pleasant pace. Even navigating the Tokyo traffic on bikes was easy. Highly recommended.
I had such a nice time and Yoko was a great guide. A nice way to see the city.
This was a great way to see parts of Tokyo, great tour guide, infact I enjoyed this tour so much that I booked one of their other tours a few days later!
This tour was fabulous from beginning to end. We were taken through areas of Tokyo that were fabulous and educational-and not touristy. We got to see the real Tokyo! We stopped in the most gorgeous Mitsubishi koi and turtle park and had lunch and went to an interesting temple and met sumo wrestlers!
Bike tour of Tokyo was fantastic, this was my second time in japan and this was hands down the best tour I have taken, our guides were fantastic, super organized, kind and I was really surprised how many things we saw and the feeling of being part of it just by getting there on a bike, is a must
This tour was amazing!!!!! This is a must the guide was very knowleadgeable, it was like talking to a friend and i was able to see tokyo in a whole different way.
This tour was brilliant! The guides were fantastic. We went all round places we would never have found on our own! Definitely worthwhile!!!
This was an Outstanding Tour. THe best way to see any city is on the bike, we went to places I would never have seen had it not been for this tour. The bikes were fantastci, the guides were very knowledgable and the route was excellently planned. The Highlight was the visit to a Buddhist Temple. Fantastic day, highly recommend!!
Best idea ever. They were super nice, and took us to tonnes of places we would never have seen otherwise. We even saw a proper ceremony at a Buddhist temple which is absolutely a highlight. Banging big drums, chanting, and a big fire - amazing. Can't describe it properly, must be experienced. Also, the bikes are so easy to ride around on. Don't need to be fit. Did I mention they were really really nice people? Well, they were =)
I cannot say enough about how amazing this tour was! It was one of my favorite experiences in Tokyo. We had the most amazing guides, Yoko and, her husband, Yasushi. They were so knowledgeable, fun, and friendly. It was like spending the day with old friends! My friend and I had actually done the Mt Fuji tour through Viator the day before and Yoko was our guide for that tour. She was so great, we considered ourselves lucky to have her again, for a second day, on the bike tour! This is a great way to see and experience Tokyo. I highly recommend it!
Yoko and Yasushi gifted us with a wonderful experience exploring parts of Tokyo that you would not find on your own. They truly enjoy giving tours and sharing their city with tourists. We were guided through the streets of Tokyo stopping at a hidden candy shop were Yoko and Yasushi showed us how Japanese kids learned to budget. We saw shinto shrines and Buddhist temples were we learned the differences between the two type of structures and saw some fantastic traditions. We got to sneak in on a Buddhist ceremony were most foreigners don't get to see. Getting to meet sumo wrestlers was fantastic, so was the little restaurant next to the training facility where we attempted to eat like the sumo wrestlers. Yasushi is very knowledgeable about sumo culture and where to meet them if its the off season. The tour was fantastic and we were able to experience a part of Tokyo which you normally don't get to see by yourself or on other tours. We highly recommend this tour and will tour with them on our next visit to Tokyo!
Good tour,well organised, very helpful organisers, enjoyable experience

Cozy tour through Tokyo with a knowledgable couple.
Absolutely recommend this bike tour especially with Yoko and Yasushi as they such great host. They immediately made feel welcome into Tokyo life and took their time to properly enlist schedule for the day. they tour itself was fantastic as I got see parts of Tokyo and landmarks I would not have thought of beforehand. If at all you do not do any tourism in tokyo whilst visiting you must give this one bike tour ago!
Ohh almost forgot you get a meal at the end of your tour at a restaurant dedicated to Sumo Wrestlers brilliant!
Yasushi is nice. The tour did not provide much information about japanese culture or history. The schedule is too slow/loose. In other words, we needs to be more activities in the schedule. Besides the cost, I feel I lost the precious time in Tokyo that I could have used to do something else
